Three days? For real?! We assumed that it would take over a week for you to make those 300K deliveries. We knew our fan community is very dedicated, but we still underestimated your commitment. We will know better next time. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/3089ab2e994241d0e0184183ebb4b9ea1cfb5bb8.jpg Ultimately, over forty thousand people managed to complete the event after weadded an extra day to complete your personal goal, but it is obviousthere are still many more players driving the events for joy, or hunting for event-specific World of Trucks Achievements - and they don’t want to miss out forever on this one. After weighing the pros and cons, we decided that we should take your suggestions to heart. Today, we are reopening the event in a limited capacity for all players, especially those who were on the edge of completing their personal goal of 10 deliveries. The rules have changed slightly; since the community goal has been reached already, there is no longer a chance to win a free Steam activation key for the DLC. But, you can still earn your World of Trucks Achievement and Goodyear Blimp hanging Steam inventory item. This also gives us an additional opportunity to push the pedal to the metal with cross-promotion, and show the kind people at Goodyear that we can treat their brand withall the attention and respect we can provide. The Goodyear Tyres Pack DLC is available on Steam now and remains a prize for those who previously finished the event during its first run. BOTH EXTENDED EVENT AND COMMUNITY CONTEST WILL END ON SUNDAY AUGUST 18th AT 23:59 UTC At the same time, we're complementing the extended event with a community contest. Since there's no need to race now, why not make some cool screenshots of your Goodyear themed truck to share with others? Of course, you get a chance to win some nice prizes too! https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/2b9a22d90a028c49f661cb352fe51a0973c2f151.jpg Tune-up your truck (and trailer optionally) using the Goodyear Tyres Pack DLC. Take an in-game screenshot - either of your truck (and trailer optionally) or inside the cabin of your truck featuring the new accessories.

We have also heard our community's feedback loud and clear, that they want to see more language options included. https://steamcommunity.com/games/227300/announcements/detail/1612769067161257003 As promised in the announcement above, today's mini-update will see the inclusion of 6 new language options (and there will be some more in the future). In the meantime, be sure to check our Steam Workshop for the huge number of GPS voice-over mods there created by our great community (ETS2, ATS). For now, we will be focusing our time on future projects and other surprises. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPsS3_wVhjk We are also excited to release this video interview with both voice talents behind the English versions of the feature - Skye Bennett and Doug Cockle, both of whom have had experience voicing video game characters and in many other roles.

Our community never fails to impress us when working together to complete our World of Trucks events. The Goodyear Roll-Out event saw over 150,000 deliveries made in less than 24 hours, and we admit we were amazed to see that this event would be completed in such a small amount of time. https://steamcommunity.com/games/227300/announcements/detail/2700389729474876279 To allow everyone the chance to complete their personal goals and earn a free Goodyear Tyres Pack DLC key, we will allow players to participate until Saturday 3rd of August 23:59 CEST (21:59 UTC) when the event will come to a close.

It felt like only minutes after we pushed the button, that almost every nation had one or more versions of their own language supported for the voice-over feature. This is thanks to the community who took full advantage of our games' mod support. Yep, that's right, on Steam Workshop (ETS2, ATS) you can find different GPS voices, ranging from funny to serious, voiced by well-known actors, comedians, celebrities and of course our very own modders. That's because adding different voice packs or even recording your own is really easy! Check out our modding wiki to see how! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kqk_e1qVE-4 That said, as much as we love community-made mods, add-ons and reworks, we didn't slam on the brakes! There will soon be a total of 15 supported languages; this means that in the future update, you'll find 6 new language options in addition to the 9 that we already have. This mini-update will also bring some minor fixes and changes, which are mostly a result of your helpful feedback. Thank you for that!Black Sea: VillagesJul 9, 2019 - Community AnnouncementsSince the release of Vive la France !, you asked for more rural roads in every new map expansion. Understandably, as the sights there are much more charming than the highways views. And what completes the rural atmosphere, except nice countryside? Of course, villages! So today we'd like to share some screenshots from a few mostly-completed villages throughout the countries of the upcoming Road to the Black Sea. And since so many of you wish for more ways to avoid highways, we plan to build a lot more of these! https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/3283fc511fd7225f16655f377e77fcb6e252653c.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/b6ed919b3e79b5d5b9f592affd49b707e4a194c2.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/afe26e74f80c67a8979c8f3b5cb3ac8f754aa311.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/0c03719ece44c1ebb6d366c53e9d62b3d186d84c.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/e8e8d20642bb0307f62de6a522287a1d39addd6d.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/086c7db9c79301d1766201c39ff3195f98bff831.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/7f6f0d87d05153875f8c791318909d8d12cfde21.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/a52f0e1747dc6783285b975f72755599468433fa.jpg While it's still a work-in-progress, the beauty of this region begins to show itself, wouldn't you say? https://store.steampowered.com/app/1056760/Euro_Truck_Simulator_2__Road_to_the_Black_Sea/Road To The Black Sea: Border CrossingsJun 25, 2019 - Community AnnouncementsAcross most of Europe, you will find that a majority of countries share open inter-state borders as part of the Schengen Agreement. This allows for a free flow of people and an easier flow of goods between nations, which makes those long-haul journeys a little bit easier; however entry for the Balkans region from Hungary into Romania is much stricter. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/710afae1d4dc5a9aa53b6b4d60eae32a9eace042.jpg After our first iteration of border crossings outside of the EU's Schengen area in Beyond the Baltic Sea, our teams have made improvements to create a more functioning border for our players to experience. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/c81b124f9eb005995a258e50cc738d7fb0ec4a6d.jpg In our upcoming map expansion, you will find two border crossings between Hungary & Romania, three between Romania & Bulgaria and two of the largest and most complicated crossings between Bulgaria & Turkey. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/99eadff598a84f6ac6be04be078f5ca296e42750.jpg These borders represent our first implementation of creating a more realistic border experience, which has been created using unique assets, and with new procedures in place; with plans to improve them further with future development and expansions. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/4bba9659739ad92fdec41cec25b606c81e044890.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/cd221eb8b5a4e33d690d227bc103dec778c328da.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/f44129cb9d711dc9485b695fafea04a4bd4da51f.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/c50bdd8c0a1fc483b158e007df9c54d30fedcebe.jpg We look forward to sharing more information about this upcoming map expansion, just remember to have your truck in order before crossing the border...

There were over 3,000(!) valid contest entries on specified social media, and a lot more posted on the World of Trucks galleries, community sites, FB fan-sites and other places. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/3a980c8f9d108e63d8f1a92b664ee45321b64d8c.jpg Judging this many entries was a very hard task. With the "semifinal" pick counting more than 100 pictures, we felt bad for every single one of those discarded as we moved towards the final selection. Pretty often a dozen of you had the same idea for the shot and having to choose only one was very difficult. Sadder still was to exclude wonderful pictures, where the author forgot to tag SCS Software or DAF trucks and unfortunately didn't qualify. Nevertheless, we had to choose some winners - and here they are!

They will also receive a Steam key from our catalogue of their choosing. --- We and DAF Trucks both are very happy that you guys have enjoyed the contest so much - and thus we've decided to reward a few more of you, in addition to the original 5 winners, so here are some honourable mentions picked from the huge number of other wonderful screenshots that didn't make it to the top. Those who submitted these selected images will receive a Steam key from our catalogue of their choosing. Perhaps you would like to express your love for these pictures too; the names are hyperlinked, so you are welcome to click on their names and give them a like! Some were really creative, especially on the start of the contests, when hunt for the locations from the video was most intensive! :) https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/...Black Sea: TurkeyJun 13, 2019 - Community AnnouncementsWith players of our American Truck Simulator busy with Washington and Forest Machinery, it's time to show some more of the next expansion for Euro Truck Simulator 2. This time, Turkey! https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/923dae30c1f8248500b6179cacc841af130d5354.jpg Turkey is a pretty big country (783,356 square kilometers) with a population of more than 80 million people. However, Road to the Black Sea will feature only the European part. This part is bordered by Bulgaria and Greece. It says something about the history of this region - from Ancient Greece, through the Roman Empire, Byzantine Empire and Ottoman Empire to the modern Republic of Turkey, this land has seen it all. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/60ff181b11c59d3fd4613af6bc4179b415b86977.jpg Thus, you'll find a solid number of landmarks, historical buildings and remnants of the past. Edirne, for example, one of the first cities you'll encounter upon entering Turkey, was founded by the Roman Emperor Hadrian, on the place of the ancient Thracian settlement and later served as the third capital city of the Ottoman Empire. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/92713cda569251ccf902d2bee3a2145767ed257e.jpg Trucking-wise, Turkey is a great country. The profession of a truck driver is one of high esteem there so anything connected with trucking is usually of a high standard - be it truck stops, gas stations or anything else. But that is a theme for future blog posts. For now, we offer these early screenshots, but we can't wait to reveal more! https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/3fdfebd2d25383698f6b79d46bf7c602b8a720a0.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/d35265d6810ea29c47a2d4d12abb44cc0ec84830.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/280aa26f558fc348c6aa24907a7c17ac9f18cf69.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/76ba497b2292e6e6dfa934027d93c65514332a5e.jpg https://store.steampowered.com/app/1056760/Euro_Truck_Simulator_2__Road_to_the_Black_Sea/ ː1033ː You still have some time to get some great deals on both ATS and ETS2 in our Steam sale! ː1033ːWashington Released!Jun 11, 2019 - Community AnnouncementsWe are excited to announce the official release of our newest map expansion, Washington for American Truck Simulator! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfMXLvxqgoI https://store.steampowered.com/app/1015160/American_Truck_Simulator__Washington/ We also have more surprises under the hood today, with the release of the Forest Machinery DLC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjnpFnmp6kA This brand new trailer pack offers new and unique trailers for drivers to deliver to throughout Oregon's and Washington's logging industries and includes: Towed Forest Machinery: Forwarder Log Harvester Log Loader Log Stacker Mulcher Stumper Specialized Trailers: Tub Grinder Knuckleboom Loader Truck Accessories: Headache Racks (2 versions for each cabin type) Hanging Chainsaw toy https://store.steampowered.com/app/1076080/American_Truck_Simulator__Forest_Machinery/ With the release of these new add-ons, we have created a 'West Coast Bundle' which includes The base game of American Truck Simulator, Oregon and our latest releases, Washington and The Forest Machinery DLC.

Following the release of the 1.35 Update for ETS2, let's keep the ball rolling by talking about the Road to the Black Sea. Next on our list of country profiles; Bulgaria. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/95ee44555a91c94844b1a6ea206e22dc7dc73a7e.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/431b69eca74023b0617babd8aac4af6107a7dca4.jpg Bulgaria is a medium-sized Slavic country (110,994 square kilometers) bordered by the Black Sea to the east, and Turkey to the south. Its location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia has led it to serve as the staging ground for multiple cultural and strategic shifts over the past centuries and millennia. As the birthplace of the Cyrillic alphabet in 9th century AD, it was also part of the Byzantine and Ottoman empires, and then the Soviet-led Eastern Bloc, before finally becoming an independent parliamentary republic in 1991. Relics of this amalgamation of cultures can still be seen throughout the country as you drive along its winding country roads, bustling cities, and serene coastal roads. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/812a945acb18b5df19873f2b7df2f2da316b5dbf.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/59a10c7fe8dd24e4d13343029a5338e961e7360c.jpg While we can't wait to show you much more in the coming months, here's a collection of a few work-in-progress screenshots to whet your appetite; this time featuring some rustic localities and Soviet-era architecture. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/3b613882ce0128d4232db104a19d328a18159380.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/2ae616076634faad0ae5fd6ea7e620397a4cfd9d.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/b6fb811aa7b756ef595e4184817c0ef5a815d84f.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/abfb47acdd95197cd670502bbc3e54a11237faf9.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/5f58a387bbf2b2cb4027db1870b786b8ecae00c4.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/d4868ef99e32046443ccdeae2b2aa558825add1f.jpg https://store.steampowered.com/app/1056760/Euro_Truck_Simulator_2__Road_to_the_Black_Sea/Euro Truck Simulator 2 Update 1.35Jun 5, 2019 - Community AnnouncementsWe're happy to announce that after spending some time in internal testing, Experimental Beta and Public Beta, the Euro Truck Simulator 2 Update 1.35 is now ready for all trucking enthusiasts! https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/f0eda4c62e31bee73a0a4cb3a56fc932f8985ae6.jpg As we have said before, this update is really huge so we'd like to thank all those who helped us in testing it. Due to its size, we won't describe all the details here again (read the Public Beta article please). Instead, we'd like to address some questions regarding a new feature that was added only a few days ago; GPS voice navigation. As with many other features, please do consider this to be the initial phase. For now, you can choose from 9 different language options (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Polish, Turkish and Mandarin Chinese), but we do plan to add more in the future, in addition to other improvements. The beta feedback we've received so far has been really positive, but don't be shy about adding your own on our forum. Your opinion is important to us! And for those who like short recap videos, here's ours for this content-packed update! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0spF3OFQj1U To enjoy the 1.35 update, make sure to OPT OUT of beta branches and your game will be automatically updated on Steam. Some mods, however, may have not caught up yet - this update may effectively break them. So remember that you can always stay on 1.34 or an even older branch. The way to access and select them is: Steam client → LIBRARY → right click on Euro Truck Simulator 2 → Properties → Betas tab → select the version you want.

I feel vindicated now. Thanks to a recent beta patch with only “voice for navigation” listed as a feature, you can have everyone’s favourite white-haired monster hunter guide you to your destination. It’s not just Geralt, of course, but a range of sat-nav voice options, three of which are done by Doug Cockle, Geralt’s English voice actor. He’s perhaps a little out of practice, but the voice labelled ‘Doug (Raspy)’ is as close as you can get to Geralt without angering lawyers. You can have a listen to the voice below and find a link to that (unofficial, made by “theZash”) skin too. (more…) Geralt is now in Euro Truck Simulator 2 and I'm not even kiddingJun 3, 2019 - PC GamerYou may not know the name Doug Cockle, but the odds are pretty good that you know his work. He provided the voice of Geralt, The Witcher, guiding the character from humble roots in 2007 to major mainstream success as one of the most recognizable and fully-realized videogame protagonists of all time. And with that great character finally retired in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's acclaimed 2016 DLC Blood and Wine, Cockle has now moved on to his next big role: An optional GPS voice in Euro Truck Simulator 2.  "You're going too fast!" Geralt—that is, Cockle—says in this video courtesy of YouTuber Milan. The relevant bit begins at 1:10 and is entitled Doug (Raspy), although I'm not sure if that's the official description or just something he came up with. Either way, it's appropriate, and when Doug tells me to "get ready to turn left," you better believe my hand is moving to the turn signal with a quickness.  The voice isn't quite dead-on Geralt but it's close enough that when he says "It's all over now" as the driver pulls into the lot, it makes me think that somebody wasn't checking their blind spot before changing lanes—and that there will be consequences. Thanks, Kotaku.    Black Sea: RomaniaMay 24, 2019 - Community AnnouncementsSince you already know what our next map expansion will be, it's time to take a closer look at the countries found on the Road to the Black Sea. This time, Romania. Romania is a large (238,397 square kilometres) and wonderful country with a unique spirit and cultural tradition. A reason for this lies in the fact that the country is at the crossroad of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe. Many different influences met in Romania during its rich history, and marks of these can be seen even today - for example in the number of architectural landmarks. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/0e4b0e66924eb3572704c9cb369e0eebd3c4e031.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/8f61e08f95930481ba8449a3a6621e36acc7b7ed.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/0482d5d3e5be2fbb81113d963282f4362eda47a9.jpg https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/4036972/5b783092235add8162dc986d027a884b54585b6c.jpg From a driver's point of view, you'll find everything you might desire - high mountains, deep forests, rivers, coastal roads and more!
