 Note: This page contains only information about Manchester in Euro Truck Simulator 2!

Manchester is a city in the United Kingdom. It's one of the only seven cities[1] to have been featured in three or more "Truck Simulator" games. For Manchester (as well as London and Newcastle), the three games in concern are Euro Truck Simulator (Gold Edition), UK Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2.

In-Game History[edit | edit source]

The city was first introduced in Euro Truck Simulator Gold Edition, and is the middle of the three British cities featured in the game. Manchester is the northernmost city producing ADR cargo (depots in Newcastle only accept them). Therefore the city is important for truckers looking for profitable jobs.

In UK Truck Simulator, with the map expanded, Manchester gained new neighbours: Liverpool and Sheffield. This remains the case in Euro Truck Simulator 2, where the British part of the game map is derived from the UKTS map. One of the main new features introduced in ETS 2 is the port facilities. To truckers going to / from Manchester, this means faster runs to the European continent via the port of Hull.

Features[edit | edit source]

FCP, LKW and WGCC are in Manchester, with a TREE-ET mill just to the west of the city. Facilities available for truckers, including a garage, a hotel, a recruitment agency, and a large Scania truck dealer (with service shop integrated) are present in Manchester.

Connections[edit | edit source]

For all three games featuring Manchester, the M62 forms the main access to Manchester, although the M6 nearby also plays an important role.

In ETS 2, Manchester is only connected to the M62, which forms a vital east-west link between the M1 and M6. Furthermore, the highway north of the eastern end of M62 becomes the A1, a more accurate simulation of real-life.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. The other six are London, Newcastle, Berlin, Frankfurt, München and Wien
