The Euro Truck Simulator wiki last edited by whatsthatgame on 06/04/14 03:13PM View full history

Introduction

Euro Truck Simulator is a game that aims at reproducing the feel of the European roads. You drive deliveries between big European cities like Rome, Berlin, Madrid and Prague amongst others. All the trucks in Euro Truck Simulator are modelled after real European trucks and share their way of handling all of this in order to recreate the most authentic European trucker feeling.

Gameplay

At the beginning of the game, players are able to choose a starting city from one of 12 countries across Europe and are given a budget of 100,000 Euros to spend on their first truck. After this, the player is able to undertake a variety of jobs from different companies, making deliveries all over Europe using real-life recognisable routes and roads, earning money as they go in order to purchase new trucks and take on more high-profile jobs from bigger companies, involving much longer and more complicated journeys as the game progresses.

In addition to driving trucks along routes players also have to stop and refuel their truck if it is low on petrol, stop somewhere safe and sleep if they are becoming tired, call the emergency services if they break down, and park themselves correctly at their destinations. Failure to comply with the rules of the road can incur fines, and if the player loses more money thanthey have they are met with a game over screen. Driving is done from a third-person driver's seat view, although the views of the wing mirrors are also displayed on screen so that players may see the road behind them. Players have access to such features of the truck as the lights, parking break, and horn.
