  1. Spain and Portugal have an excellent and fast motorway network which spans the entire peninsula, and in comparison to other European countries, it has very few motorway tolls. However, you may still find yourself travelling on a toll road or coming across a toll plaza when driving across our upcoming Iberia DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2. Any driver and their wallet traveling across Europe would be very familiar with paying tolls, especially in countries such as France, but there is a good reason behind them. Toll roads give road users the option to drive on a better maintained, less busy, and
  2. Virtual Truckers of the world, we are all still enduring hard times, as the world continues to battle COVID-19. The fight is not over, but we can see light at the end of the tunnel, we see hope in the creation of the COVID-19 Vaccines and their rapid worldwide roll-out. We would like to, once again, recognise the selfless drivers and support crews working so incredibly hard to achieve this goal. So, we are inviting you to take part in personally delivering these vaccines, across any and all trucking territories in the World of Trucks Hauling Hope event! Last year, in March, we asked you all
  3. The holiday season is a time of rest for most people, but for the logistics industry, it is the busiest time of the year! Over the past couple of months, drivers from across the world have united to deliver gifts wisely on both sides of the Atlantic in our Christmas Wise Giving Event. Thousands of deliveries needed to be made for cities across both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator and our #BestCommunityEver delivered! We thank you for all the hard work and time each of you put in to help unlock rewards for all drivers to enjoy in-game. In less than 24 hours, drivers have
  4. Today we are excited to share with you some pictures from Wyoming, our upcoming DLC expansion for American Truck Simulator. However, while we usually talk about the landmarks and areas that we decide to show, we thought it might be fun to switch it up a little for this post! We think our community is pretty good when it comes to detective work, so we thought we might present you with the challenge of figuring out the locations of these images! Think you know the answers? Let us know in the blog comments or any of our official social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) and you could
  5. A trip to Spain is not complete without a visit to the country's capital city, Madrid! Located practically near the geographic center of the peninsula, Madrid is home to the Spanish Royal Family, lots of historical architecture, and two world-famous football clubs. Today we are happy to share with you these new images from our upcoming Iberia DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2, which will also feature our new visual lighting implementation. Please keep in mind, however, both the lighting and map expansion seen in these shots are still 'work in progress' and may not represent the final product at
  6. Back in October last year, Update 1.39 for American Truck Simulator saw the arrival of viewpoints to the states of Washington and Utah after their popular debut in Idaho! Today we are happy to share with you that our next 1.40 update for ATS will see the introduction of more viewpoints in the states of New Mexico & Oregon. For newer players of our titles, Viewpoints are certain spots found across the map, where drivers can activate a special in-game "cutscene" with a short showcase of a near location or place of interest. These can be found displayed as a grey question mark on your GPS,
  7. With the upcoming release of the Iberia expansion for Euro Truck Simulator 2, we know that many drivers will be excited to progressively make their way down Europe to cross into the peninsula for the first time. With France being mainland Europe's gateway to Spain and Portugal, our team is currently developing 2 new French locations which will be a part of a free update to the Vive La France ! DLC in the future. The first being the city of Bayonne, located in the southwest of France; it is the capital of the French Basque Country and an important connection for drivers heading to Spain as it
  8. Happy New Year! We hope you found time to enjoy the festive period and time to relax and settle down with a cup of your favorite hot drink. However, we know that many of you continued to work hard over the Christmas period as you took part in our #XmasWiseGiving World of Trucks event! With brightly-decorated Christmas gift trailers and festively-painted trucks, drivers from across the world came together to help deliver gifts across the Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator with a goal to achieve, and on the 27th of December you, our #BestCommunityEver, completed the community g
  9. The year 2020 is coming to an end in a few hours. It's been a very hard year for most of the world, but we want to focus on something positive here. Despite some setbacks and hard decisions to make, the work on new map expansions, new vehicles and parts, new game features, and our 3D engine improvements continued at a solid pace. We have managed to keep our chins up and remain productive, and both American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2 keep getting better. Allow us to reminiscence and review the content and features we have released throughout 2020! Let's all hope that the new yea
  10. Our dearest #BestCommunityEver, The festive end of the year is fast approaching, and the team at SCS Software is taking a bit of time off to enjoy the holidays and to recharge our batteries. We will slow down the pace of news updates and social media posts over the next couple of weeks, but we'll be back in January with new energy and lots of new topics to cover. Meanwhile, we trust that all the automated systems we have put in place will keep on working only with a bit of monitoring needed. So you should be able to enjoy our new Christmas Wise Giving event on World of Trucks, as well as still
  11. Last year we asked the community to spread the spirit of Christmas giving across all trucking territories in the Christmas Grand Giving event of 2019. The response was outstanding and we all did ourselves proud. So, you may ask, what could top such a momentous effort? What is better than giving during Christmas time? The answer, this year, is not just giving, but giving wisely! In this way, we bring you the Christmas Wise Giving event of 2020 for Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator! We are not only asking you, our #BestCommunityEver, to match the Grand Giving reputation that yo
  12. We don't want to leave drivers of Euro Truck Simulator 2 without some of the cool items and designs that U.S drivers can now have in their truck cabs with the recent release of Cabin Accessories for American Truck Simulator. We are happy to share with you that if all goes as planned, we intend to release an update tomorrow for the Cabin Accessories DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2. It should become available just as we update both games to give the community access to a new seasonal event (hint hint!). All the new content for Cabin Accessories DLC will of course be free for its current owners. T
  13. Today, we'd like to share with you more news about the Germany reskin project. As mentioned in our recent 'Good News & the Mixed News' blog post, the team behind the reworking of Germany in Euro Truck Simulator 2 has made good progress and today, we'd like to share with you some screenshots from their work, which is planned to be released with the next 1.40 update. For those who are new to our game, the revisiting Germany project consists of a small dedicated map team, who has been working hard to update one of the oldest map sections of the base game with a more realistic and up-to-date
  14. After much guessing and debate, many of you came to the conclusion of which state we showcased in our recent teaser trailer. Today we are excited to share with you the U.S State which will be arriving next... Introducing Wyoming for American Truck Simulator Wyoming may be one of the least populated states in the U.S, but that doesn't mean that it lacks spectacular places to visit and see. Home to some of the country's most breathtaking national parks, Wyoming is best known for its red-walled gorges, hot springs, historic prairie towns, pioneer history, and historical attractions. So why th
  15. On the 30th of November 2020 at 23:59UTC, our SCS Software Merchandise Shop came to a close. However, before the official closing time, many of you made orders of what limited number of items we had left in stock. We really do appreciate and thank all of you for the incredible support you gave our shop during its final few days! As we have received many inquiries into the status of your orders, we wanted to provide an update to clarify information regarding current orders from our shop. We'd like to assure everyone who checked out before the official closing time and date, that your order ha
