Slow-burn underground hit, European Truck Simulator 2, still sitting in the Top 20 sellers on Steam is going to be receiving an Eastern European themed DLC pack in the coming months. The map expansion will have a strong focus on Poland, a country in which developers SCS Software have seen great success and support.
The team at SCS have released a bunch of early images of some of the cities that will feature in the expansion, and they look a lot more detailed than the locations that can be explored in the base game. You can check the out, along with a map of the expanded road network after the break.
This won’t be a free expansion, pricing hasn’t been confirmed but in this blog post the team reveal that they are pondering launching at the €10 price point. There will still be free updates and patches which will include new trucks and possibly some surprises as well. If this expansion proves to be a viable business then SCS Software will look at other expansions they can bring to the table, they list possibilites of going north to the Scandinavian countries, further east into Russia, or completing France and moving towards Italy and Spain.
Undoubtedly the early success of the game on Steam since release following its successful Greenlight campaign has helped the team accrue the resources required to delve into working on DLC. From tracking the Steam Stats page recently, it has quite often been reaching at least 1,500 players a day, similar numbers to Farming Simulator 2013. Things seem to be looking up for the trucking series, who would have thought that a couple of years ago?
