News of a Euro Truck Simulator 2 expansion shipped out a few weeks ago. It took a while to get here, though: arriving on the back of a lorry pocked with dents, it's many fines and tickets flapping about the windscreen. Having played the game, I sympathise. Now that it's here we can delve into info about the game's first DLC, Going East, which adds a number of Eastern European cities to the game.
My most favorite of sims just got even more realistic! We're not talking about toytown SimCity or ArmA 3's eagle-eye tactical simulation here, oh no. We're talking about the most mundane of what life has to offer times a hundred, thanks to the ultra-clarity of an Oculus Rift headset. We're talking about something that's human, dramatic, believable. You guessed it — we're talking about Euro Truck Simulator 2!
Scary true story. A week after ETS2 reversed, beeping, into my life, I collected a friend from a house in the middle of nowhere. We’d driven about a mile down a winding country lane when the friend enquired “Er, shouldn’t you be on the other side of the road?” Days of whisking simulated cargoes along simulated continental highways had stealthily displaced a decade and a half of unsimulated British motoring experience. I veered to the left, and blurted a confession.
Citizens of Dunwall, please accept my apologies. I was a hop, skip and a slide away from the Lord Regent’s chamber when this seriously compelling lorry sim sped into my life. Suddenly, stealthy vengeance seems far less important than ensuring a load of new JCBs gets to Bratislava on time.
