Truck Simulator Wiki

German Truck Simulator (GTS) is a SCS Software truck simulator game focusing in Germany (and, with a later expansion, Austria).

In the game, the player must choose a "starting point" city to start his / her career (the choices are preset in-game, see "Cities" section below), and assumes the role of a virtual haulage company employee.

By transporting cargo (up to 60 different types), the player can visit 18 major German cities. Ultimately, players have the option to purchase their own truck, and drive as an independent driver, choosing their cargo and delivery locations.

An expansion, Edition Austria, was released in August 2010. 4 cities in Austria were added to the game, with two of them available as starting points.

  • The interface and physics of German Truck Simulator is similar to the earlier truck simulation game by SCS, Euro Truck Simulator.
  • The game map of German Truck Simulator is the basis of Germany and Austria in Euro Truck Simulator 2 game map at its initial release, but most of this has since been updated. Refer to the two countries' respective pages for further details.
