Iberia & New Light System: Development Teaser

Yesterday, we approached you with news of a very important decision for us. While we are 100% sure we chose the right path, we were quite nervous about how the fan community will accept this mixed news. We went all-in on trust and hope that everyone will understand and follow our hard decision. Extending development time on a project is not a cheap adventure, but the Iberia team deserves the chance to fully realize their vision, and synchronizing the release with our new light system will give the map expansion a chance to truly shine. It is also very important that compressing both releases into a single testing cycle, any long-term effects on future releases are minimized.

We are grateful for and humbled by the response coming from our #BestCommunityEver. Thank you for once again reassuring us that we are in this together.

As we hinted yesterday, to make up for the shock of the initial announcement, we felt that we need to show you a bit more. So we rushed to come up with something literally overnight. Today we are happy to share a short development teaser video presenting a bit of the new light setup, coincidentally recorded at locations from an up and coming Euro Truck Simulator 2 map DLC. The team still has a ton of work ahead of them to adjust so many models and textures to the new system. We only have a few locations (and still subject to further tweaks) that are close enough to completion that we can consider them ready to be shown. So the teaser is rather short, but it should give you a very good idea of what kind of improvements the new light system will bring for both ETS2 and ATS with the 1.40 update.




We hope you like what you see there already! Keep an eye on our blog and social media channels because we plan to bring you more updates and hot news on these topics.

Germany Reskin Update

Today, we'd like to share with you more news about the Germany reskin project. As mentioned in our recent 'Good News & the Mixed News' blog post, the team behind the reworking of Germany in Euro Truck Simulator 2 has made good progress and today, we'd like to share with you some screenshots from their work, which is planned to be released with the next 1.40 update.

Image

For those who are new to our game, the revisiting Germany project consists of a small dedicated map team, who has been working hard to update one of the oldest map sections of the base game with a more realistic and up-to-date look.

We are also happy to share that these screenshots were taken with the new light system that is being implemented into our game engine. However, bringing new and updated lighting into the virtual world isn't an easy task. A majority of our in-game assets and objects have had to be optimized and updated to work with the new visual style that is being actively developed. The hard work and effort our teams are putting into this update are really beginning to shine and we can't wait to share more with you about it in the future.

So what changes can you expect from this update? We won't share all the nitty-gritty details in this blog post, however, we can share that the city of Stuttgart will include a new area for the airport (which you may have spotted in the previous blog post image) and the city of Dortmund has been relocated to the correct side of the Autobahn; but that isn't all!

Image

The biggest change that will come with this update is a complete reskin and rework of all the highways and roads in this part of our in-game world, which haven't been reskinned in previous updates. Additionally, the area around the cities of Dortmund, Köln, Dusseldorf, and Duisburg has not only benefitted from a complete road network redesign but a few new intersections and roads as well! The southern part of the Bundesautobahn 7 will also be available in this update.

Image

We hope this upcoming Germany update will keep you content until our next big release. Please keep in mind that these screenshots were taken in the new visual light implantation which is still under heavy development and is subject to change. We look forward to sharing with you more development news in the future!

Starting to look very good. Going to be a huge undertaking to revise the rest of the old map + Going East DLC. Any news about the Christmas event this year?

Vive la France ! DLC: Iberia Connections

With the upcoming release of the Iberia expansion for Euro Truck Simulator 2, we know that many drivers will be excited to progressively make their way down Europe to cross into the peninsula for the first time. With France being mainland Europe's gateway to Spain and Portugal, our team is currently developing 2 new French locations which will be a part of a free update to the Vive La France ! DLC in the future.

Image

The first being the city of Bayonne, located in the southwest of France; it is the capital of the French Basque Country and an important connection for drivers heading to Spain as it is located close to the border. Bayonne will also feature local industries from which drivers can deliver to and from.

Image

Image

Image

Image

The second location will be the smaller commune of Lacq, which is located in the Arrondissement of Pau. While this small village will just be a scenic drive-through for most, there is one major industry that is located there. The industrial complex was built after the discovery of one of the greatest natural gas fields in the world. Today Lacq is home to the largest refinery in France and is one of the world’s largest sulfur producers and exporters.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Both of these areas plus two new connecting junctions in Toulouse and Bordeaux will come as a free update to the Vive La France ! DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2 when the Iberia DLC is released. Please keep in mind that all of these screenshots you see here today are work in progress, both in terms of development and the new visual lighting system present.

Image

Image

Image

If you haven't already, check out the Vive la France ! DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2; and add the Iberia DLC to your Steam Wishlist. It really helps support the development of our DLC's and we thank you for your support if you have chosen to already.
