The Latest Truck Simulator Goings-On

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.

The Simulation Game Catch Up – Trains, Farms and Trucks

The Simulation Game Catch Up – Trains, Farms and Trucks

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.

The Indie Gaming Roundup – Wasteland, Concursion and More

The Indie Gaming Roundup – Wasteland, Concursion and More

This week has been filled with emails concerning release dates for a number of indie titles. It is always good to see indie’s getting released, though with the ever increasing number of games hitting platforms such as Humble Bundle and Steam, it is a wonder any of them actually get played, even if they are purchased for bargain basement prices. It is worth reading what Jeff Vogel (Avadon and Geneforge) has to say about the ‘indie gaming bubble.’ Once you’ve checked that out, head back here for word on Wasteland, Euro Truck Simulator and more.

The Latest Euro Truck Sim 2 Developments

After turning on Steam the other day, I took at look at the list of current downloads and spotted Euro Truck Simulator 2 busy downloading an update. I sadly haven’t been able to play this engrossing game much since moving into my flat, but I wanted to keep up to date with the latest goings on and so, I headed over to the SCS Software blog. So now, I can bring you an update on the latest goings on, just take a look below the line.

Euro Truck Sim 2 Getting Eastern Europe DLC

Euro Truck Sim 2 Getting Eastern Europe DLC

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.

The Rise of Linux Continues – Euro Truck Simulator 2 Nearing Delivery

The Rise of Linux Continues – Euro Truck Simulator 2 Nearing Delivery

The rise of Linux as a gaming platform seems to gather momentum every week with new games, software and hardware being confirmed to use the operating system at a growing rate. Doubtless the growth of the penguin friendly OS is in part down to the Steam Beta client for Linux, but it is great to see that Euro Truck Simulator 2 will soon be available on Linux, initially in beta form.

I haven’t used Linux at all yet, but the growing number of games that are being released on it might make me think twice about not checking it out. I wouldn’t be surprised if 2013 is the year that Linux breaks into the mainstream. Meanwhile, I just wonder how long we have to wait for ETS 2 to get released on Steam, hopefully it won’t be much longer.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 – The Verdict

Euro Truck Simulator 2 – The Verdict

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 here on The Reticule, at the end of the day it is just too niche to be considered a must buy for the majority of gamers. But it is a quite splendid title.
