The team had to drop various parts of future projects to get this done, which required a rework of a monstrous number of assets.

This should make the game look even better than it already does. It also takes the game one step closer to physics based lighting, which shows how committed SCS are to this title.

Changes in Germany

Another change brought in in this update are a number of updates to Germany.

So, since 2018, a small team at SCS has been redoing Germany. Now, with this update, there has been a complete reskin and rework of all the highways and roads.

There has also been a full redesign and expanded road network for Dortmund, Duisburg, Dusseldorf and Koln.

Future Update

A NEW LOOK: The new lighting will make the game seem even more realistic!

The team behind the game are soon to add the Iberian peninsula to Euro Truck Simulator 2, adding at least Portugal and Spain.

It is suspected that future content will also send players deeper into Russia. With countless miles of road to potentially add, it makes sense for the developers to expand here!
