"With its area of 547,030 square km, France has 1,027,183 km of serviceable roadway. France is also a very popular tourist destination: people come to visit famous vineyards, ski resorts and of course Paris, one of the world's most beautiful and romantic cities."
— Official Euro Truck Simulator 2 Website

France (French: France) is a country in Western Europe, featured in Euro Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Although the whole of France appears on the map, only the northeastern part is featured in the initial Euro Truck Simulator 2. France was expanded with 23 new cities in the Vive la France ! DLC, released on 5 December 2016, fills up the rest of the country.

The country is bordered by Belgium to the north, Luxembourg and Germany to the northeast, Switzerland to the east, Italy to the southeast and Spain to the south. In real-life, it also shares borders with the microstates Andorra and Monaco.

The base game part of France was reworked in the update 1.26.

Toll system[]

While France is just like most other countries in Euro Truck Simulator, its direct sequel - Euro Truck Simulator 2 – introduces toll booths on French Autoroutes, which are common in real-life France. The reason for extensive road-tolling in France is that the French government conceded the exploitation of most of the motorways to private companies, which in turn charges users to maintain the networks.

Accessible Cities[]

The Port of Calais, Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux are featured in Euro Truck Simulator.

8 French cities (including Paris, Lyon and Calais) are featured in Euro Truck Simulator 2 base game, while the Vive la France ! DLC brings back Bordeaux along with 22 others (14 cities in the initial release, 6 cities in Corse were added in the update 1.36 and 2 cities (including Bayonne and Lacq) were added in the update 1.40). In total, 31 French cities are featured in ETS 2, making the country with the second-highest number of accessible in-game cities behind Spain.
