Eurotruck Simulator 2 is a simulation game developed by SCS Software. The trucking game is the sequel to the Euro Truck Simulator and the second installment to the Truck Simulator series. ETS 2 is compatible with all Windows PCs running 64-bit Windows 7/8/10. Your job is to drive an articulated or artic truck across select areas of Europe. You will pick up various sizes and amounts of cargo and deliver them to the correct receiver. With each successful delivery, you can earn enough to build a fleet of trucks and purchase a depot.
The game begins by picking your headquarters or HQ location. It can be at any point in the city or map. Your first set of tasks are considered as Quick Jobs. This means you are a hired hand of a logistics company. They will shoulder your truck and other expenses such as fuel, tolls, and ferry crossings. The more successful deliveries you have, the more money and experience you earn. Eventually, you can afford to purchase additional trucks, garage, and non-playable characters or drivers. NPC drivers can also gain experience per delivery.
Experience or skill points are awarded after each level up. You can use them to unlock different zones, boundaries or ADR Classes. This allows you to go on long-distance deliveries, special cargo loads, fragile cargo loads, next-day deliveries, and eco-driving. Niche deliveries such as these are higher paying, but rare so always take them.
The game has also integrated some entertainment features such as a Radio. You can import MPG or OGG files so you can play and listen to your favorite songs on one device. It also has a built-in internet radio. Truckers.FM. It has a growing number of presenters, each focusing on a genre of music and topics.
