SCS Software has just announced a new map expansion for their peerless trucking sim Euro Truck Simulator 2, called Road to the Black Sea. As with previous map expansions to the game, Beyond the Baltic Sea, Italia, Vive la France!, Scandinavia, and Going East!, this new expansion brings new territories to truck through, more specifically some Eastern European countries such as Romania and Bulgaria, but also venturing into the near-Middle East of Turkey.

With Road to the Black Sea, truck drivers in Euro Truck Simulator 2 will be able to expand their companies and deliver goods to the aforementioned countries while cruising through the beautiful scenery of the forested region of Transylvania and the surrounding Carpathian Mountain range in Romania, the diverse terrain and Black Sea coastline of Bulgaria, and the Trakya region of Turkey, which is a gateway to one of the largest cities in the Mediterranean, Istanbul.

You will drive through both large cities and small humble villages in the countryside. Truckers will also be able to drive on roads leading to scenic coastlines alongside the Black Sea, which offer a large variety of industries for players to deliver to and from, including farms, logging companies, and the mining industry. You can have a glimpse of what you may expect to see on the road to the Black Sea in the trailer below, which shows the beautiful and quaint sceneries of Eastern Europe.

According to SCS Software, if everything goes according to plan, they expect to release the Euro Truck Simulator 2 map expansion by the end of 2019. You can also see the trailer announcement below. In the meantime, you can follow Euro Truck Simulator 2 on Steam to keep up with any new announcements.
