Euro Truck Simulator 2 has slowly been expanding its drivable map across all of Europe for years now. Later this year, truckers will be able to visit Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey for the first time in the newly announced Road to the Black Sea DLC.
The expansion was recently teased by SCS Software and is expected to be available “towards the end of this year” as stated in the official press release. Players can expect a variety of environments to explore on their trips, ranging from deeply forested areas to beautiful shoreline roads. The teaser trailer showcased scenes almost reminiscent of games such as The Witcher 3. I’m quite sure that the truck handling in Euro Truck Simulator 2 is far superior to that of Roach, however.
Not only will the landscapes be new, but Road to the Black Sea will introduce access to the Trakya region of Turkey which is the gateway to Europe’s largest city, Istanbul. In the past, SCS Software has taken great care to model large cities accurately and include famous landmarks. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for Istanbul.
We’ll be sure to keep an eye out on any further announcements about Euro Truck Simulator 2‘s next DLC. You can also follow along on the Road to the Black Sea official Steam Store page for future updates.
