Euro Truck Simulator is a truck simulation game set in continental Europe. The player can drive across a realistic depiction of Europe, visiting its beautiful cities, picking up a variety of cargos, and delivering them on time!
Euro Truck Simulator not only appeals to lorry enthusiasts but also to anyone who loves to drive and enjoys the scenery along the way. The aim of the game is to grow your business by earning money to buy new lorries and unlocking new routes to countries throughout mainland Europe. You can achieve this by taking on jobs to collect and deliver cargo within a given time limit. The economical challenge lies in planning your routes including petrol stops in the given time frame, budgeting for payments for refuelling as well as damages to the lorry, cargo and any traffic offences.
Thanks to SCS Software (leading developers known in the gaming world for creating Bus Simulator, etc.) developing the graphics, this game offers a surprising amount of graphic detail in lorries, interior of cabins, routes and accurate realistic scenery. The player genuinely gains an insight into the geography of Europe by planning their routes with the help of maps. The road network is based on genuine European roads and cities and featured trucks are meticulously modelled exclusively on European truck designs.
The road network in Euro Truck Simulator is based on genuine European roads, and cities in the game bring the essence of their real-world counterparts to the game.
As the game is set in Europe, European truck-designs feature exclusively - all trucks use highly realistic, meticulously detailed models based on real trucks. The truck interiors of Euro Truck Simulator are as equally impressive as the exteriors. With actual working instruments such as flashing indicators, temperature and low fuel warning lights, wipers, and naturally - a full set of gauges including speedometer - all built into the interior 3D model, Euro Truck Simulator offers a truly immersive simulation environment. The player can pan around the cabin, just as if they were actually sitting at the wheel.
Robert Stallibrass of Excalibur Publishing says: “The graphics are outstanding. Not only can you ‘look’ around the cabin from the driver’s seat and see the detail, but all gauges and levers are fully functional allowing you to indicate, switch on lights, turn on high-beams as well as checking your speed on the fully functional speedometer.”
Euro Truck Simulator will retail at £29.99, is and will officially hit the shelves on August 29, 2008.
