Today, SCS Software announced the release date of their latest DLC, The Road to the Black Sea, for Euro Truck Simulator 2. It releases on December 5.
The Road to the Black Sea DLC will include three new European regions, such as the forested region and the Carpathian Mountain ranges of Transylvania, the Black Sea and diverse terrains of Bulgaria, and the Trakya region of Turkey that leads to Europe's largest city, Istanbul.
Players will be able to deliver to and from many different industries, such as mining and steel, logistics companies, and farms. Over 10,000 kilometeres will be made available to drive on, 11 new local company docks and industries will be added, and 20 new major cities and smaller towns/settlements will be included.
New 3D assets will also be added into the game, as well as regional vegetation, Local AI trains, trams, and traffic cars, horse carts for those who wish to explore the Bulgarian and Romanian countrysides, border crossings and border controls for players to play with, a river ferry over the Danube, and Black Sea region achievements to unlock, for you achievement completionists that are out there.
The price for Euro Truck Simulator 2: Road to the Black Sea DLC will cost players $17.99 or your regional equivalent.
It's cool to see a game receiving support over 7 years after it was released. I've always been interested in giving Euro Truck Simulator 2 (or any truck simulator, really) a go, but now I'm finding myself strangely tempted. I don't know why, given that I don't really enjoy driving in real life, so it would be pretty ironic that I would find myself playing a trucking simulator on the PC. We'll see.
