Euro Truck Simulator 2 is one of those very special games that are actually just possible on PC, but at the same time, it’s also a veritable hit. A long time after its release, a huge number of people still play it daily—almost 19,000 are enormous rigging it at the present time, as indicated by SteamDB—and so developer SCS Software keeps on expanding its map with more roads to run, spots to go, and things to see.
The following addition, Road to the Black Sea, will give players a chance to pull their loads through the Transylvanian forests and Carpathian mountains of Romania, the Black Sea coastline of Bulgaria, and the Trakya region of Turkey, the gateway to Istanbul.
“From extensive cities to little humble villages in the countrysides, truckers will likewise be able to drive on streets which lead to grand coastlines alongside the Black Sea,” SCS said. “These areas additionally offer a vast variety of industries for players to convey to and from; including farms, logging companies, and the mining industry.”
The commitment to games like Euro Truck Simulator 2 can appear to be odd or interesting on the surface, yet it’s a big deal. Andy Kelly inspected the game’s appeal in a three-hour Odense to Bergen road trip in 2015, and after four years later he’s still truckin’: “Not once in my life have I at any point considered being a truck driver, or truly had an interest in them as vehicles,” he wrote in an interview with SCS Software prior this year. “However, I locate the game completely captivating.”
Road to the Black Sea is recorded on Steam, however, there’s at present no release date. The expectation, “if everything works out according to plan,” is to have it out close to the end of 2019.
