Since I last talked about the latest American Truck Sim goings on in December, I have actually spent some time with the game, and have learnt to appreciate the elegance and simple joys that come with the Truck Sim games. The American adventures I’ve had so far have been a pleasure, the whole game seems more diverse, and the trucks the Yanks use are just beasts when compared to our puny European models. The good news is that the boys at SCS Software aren’t…
The team at SCS Software have been mighty busy in recent months, certainly not resting on their laurels after the release of American Truck Simulator earlier this year. They’ve been busy working on updates for ATS, but haven’t left European Truck Simulator 2 behind. Hit the jump to catch up on what the team at SCS have been getting up to.
I haven’t dived into the wide open world of European Truck Simulator 2 for quite a while, and once I clear up some of my seemingly endless backlog, I’ll have to climb back into my Scania and take to the road. What’s better, once I hit the road, I’ll be able to explore Scandinavia.
I was going to name this round-up ‘The Sim Game Catch Up’, but I thought that might scare people into thinking I was bringing news of some unknown expansions to The Sims 4. Fear not, as although EA will probably announce some expansions for The Sims soon, this news round-up is focused on a different kind of simulation game. The Sims is great fun, that is for sure, but it doesn’t match the joys of driving a train, farming some fields or driving a truck around Europe. Read on fine soul for The Simulation Game Catch Up.
It has been a while since I last brought a roundup of simulation game news, so on this rainy bank holiday Monday, I thought it was about time I rectified that. Hit the break for word from the world of Euro Truck Simulator 2 and Train Simulator 2015.
If you like news regarding simulation games that involve flying or driving trucks, this news article is the news article for you. As long as you haven’t already heard the news elsewhere that is, which potentially means this can’t be considered news any more. Enough musing about the nature of news as I bring word on the latest developments from Dovetail Games and SCS Software.
In our continued attempts here at Reticule Towers to be perceived as a legitimate emporium of games journalism, we are again eschewing the notion that E3 is all anyone cares about when the big show is taking place. I mean, don’t people want to know a little bit about the latest European Truck Simulator 2 news? I for one, most certainly do. Hit the break for the low-down.
When I talk about what I am currently playing to my friends at work I often get some strange looks when I talk about what obscure game I am in the middle of. Over the past couple of weeks these looks have come about from Euro Truck Simulator 2, a game which I am not afraid to say I have actually been really quite enjoying. It isn’t the kind of game that would ever attain the famed Red Mist rating…
In non-E3 based news, SCS Software have revealed that Scania Truck Driving Simulator has gone Gold and will get a UK retail release on June 21st via Excalibur Publishing. While SCS were busy announcing this news, they also released a heap of new screenshots for European Truck Simulator 2 which you can find after the break. I must say that night time driving looks good.
Over on the SCS Software’s blog, the team behind European Truck Simulator 2 have revealed some new images showing a truck heading across the Severn Bridge from Plymouth down to my home town of Cardiff, signposts also indicate that travel to Swansea will be possible as well. This has, in all seriousness, become a must buy for me now. Hit the jump to see some more images of the route to Cardiff, driving in the rain and more.
My day has been made with some of these new images for Euro Truck Simulator 2, if you hit the jump, you can see heaps of images from the game. The first few show off the Eurotunnel, so we will easily be able to drive from the UK into France and beyond. The second set of images are of what is apparently a UK landmark, but I can’t place where it is myself. Hit the jump to take a look.
It has been too long since I talked about European Truck Simulator 2, but now is a good time to mention it again. This is one of the in-game videos recently released by SCS Software, and I will say that I am mighty impressed. This video which sees a lovely looking Mercedes truck drive across the A7 Dam in the Netherlands is quite something to look at, the water is very impressive and there is even a boat there. Sadly SCS can’t confirm what truck manufacturers will feature when the game is released, but that Merc looks a bit cozy.
