Virtual truck drivers will be pleased to hear another update is coming for Euro Truck Simulator 2. Called the Italia map expansion, this update will bring more of Italy to life.
The SCS team had this to say about the expansion and existing areas of northern Italy that are already part of the game will be getting more polish.
“Our map designers have fallen in love with the new region right from the research stages – there are so many diverse environments to combine! From tall mountains to the shores of the seas, from manicured farmland to wilder and more arid places, it was clear that we are looking at quite a challenging and demanding task! We tried our best to depict the typical features of Italy from behind the wheel, like roads leading through the Apennines, where tunnels and bridges alternate with scenic vistas and curvy segments, opening the view to distant horizons. The geography and shape of Italy have also led to a relatively high concentration of cities and industries in the new DLC.”
The Italia expansion is due for release towards the end of 2017. Here’s a rather strange teaser video and screenshots. The Steam page is also now live.
