The subsequent little bit of DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2 is because of launch subsequent week, and can broaden the already-massive truck ’em as much as Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, as effectively western components of Russia and southern Finland. Another 13 thousand kilometres of latest roads to discover, say builders SCS Software. The day they work out easy methods to simply import Google Maps into the game, I swear we’ll lose a couple of thousand individuals to Truck Fever. Until then, Beyond The Baltic Sea appears to be like like the following neatest thing. It’s out November 29th. Enjoy the folk-metal-infused (but enjoyable) trailer under.
Mechanically, this coming enlargement doesn’t look so as to add to a lot, past a few Finland-only excessive capability transport autos. Ironically, the vehicles have by no means been the primary draw of the Truck Sim collection – it’s the roads. Beyond The Baltic Sea contains twenty-three main cities and much extra smaller cities, a number of notable landmarks and a number of genuine regional corporations represented. They additionally declare that there’s full AI for the native trains, trams and basic site visitors, although I doubt they’ll behave a lot completely different. Probably received’t want a dash-cam in Russia, a minimum of.
While Truck Sim has all the time been a little bit too sedate for me to play for any size of time, it’s an interesting beast. As John noted while playing Forza Horizon 4, there’s a weird dream-like side to roaming the almost-but-not-quite acquainted roads of your homeland turned digital. While the furthest I’ve travelled out throughout the continent is to Belgium, it’s exhausting to not get a obscure sense of familiarity from the trailer above simply primarily based on the TV I’ve seen set throughout Europe. I’m curious to listen to from Russian gamers on how genuine it feels to drive into and round Saint Petersburg.
The Beyond The Baltic Sea enlargement launches subsequent Thursday, November 29th for £13.49/€17.99/$17.99. You can discover it here on Steam and can later seem on Humble. Both shops occurs to have Euro Truck Sim 2 and its expansions steeply discounted proper now.
