SCS Software announces Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Heart of Russia
new expansion that will take the transportation simulation into Russia. This is
already available to Wishlist
, but it does not yet carry a release date. A
post on the SCS
discusses the project, including the fairly obvious point that
it won't be practical to try and recreate the entirety of the gigantic country.
What we hope is that they do something with driver AI to recreate some of the
magical moments we've seen on YouTube from Russian dashcam videos. The post
offers some screenshots and the first details. Here's a bit:
focusing on the southwest of Europe, our eyes are set in the very opposite
direction. Our roads will continue to expand into the world's largest country by
area, Russia. Home to a rich cultural heritage and history, drivers will be able
to deliver to the very heart of Russia - Moscow, and beyond.
To manage expectations, it's important to explain our ambition for the project.
Russia is so vast that we cannot expect to include the whole country, we do not
even dare to cover the whole of the European part in one project. Our current
goal is to reach the upper Volga river, but if you know Russian geography,
perhaps think of the Oka river rather than the lower parts of Volga or Don. The
size of the territory we plan to cover is huge anyway, comparable to the
previous, as of now still upcoming Iberia map expansion.
