Gameplay[]

A new gameplay system is introduced in Euro Truck Simulator 2. The player is required to create a profile and choose a city as their headquarters.

Early in the game, the player must complete quick jobs to save up money and credit to afford a truck of their own.

As the player completes more jobs, the player earns skill points to invest in one of the six skills available; for example, allowing them to haul more valuable freight, or allowing them to take longer deliveries.

Later in the game, players may also purchase additional trucks, garages, and hire NPC drivers to expand their trucking business.

For people on Steam, various Achievements can be unlocked while playing.

Countries[]

Main article: Category:Locations

The game includes many countries featured in previous titles. The map and simulated European roadway are more detailed than in previous games, and features more cities. New countries, such as Luxembourg and Slovakia are introduced.

The maps of Germany and the United Kingdom are derived from German Truck Simulator and UK Truck Simulator, respectively. These areas notably lack the quality of regions featured in more recent DLCs, such as the Scandinavia DLC and the Italia DLC. On May 23, 2018, SCS announced on their blog plans to rework parts of the old map, starting with northern Germany.[1] Following the release of version 1.40 on March 24, 2021, Germany has now been fully reworked to modern standards. On August 1, 2021, SCS announced that they will plan to rework old parts of Austria, after rework of Germany.[2]
