Trivia

The game world is based on real world references but built on a smaller scale. That is why the players can actually travel around Europe and explore the places they may have been to or long to visit.

The studio has accumulated quite a few stories from the Euro Truck Simulator 2 community, where players, inspired by the game, have chosen to become real professional truck drivers.

Automobile manufacturers sometimes globally introduce new models of real trucks through the game thanks to their great relationship with the studio.


Development challenges

Reduced scale in creating the gaming world poses a challenge. Sometimes it is difficult to decide which cities, villages, highways, and other objects from the real region will be included in the new map expansion of the game (DLC), and which ones must be excluded for optimization reasons.
