    ETS 2 France Update 1.jpg
    SCS Software have revealed the official launch trailer for their upcoming Vive La France DLC due to release soon for European Truck Simulator 2. Vive La France is due to substantially update the current France region of ETS2, adding several key new cities from around the region alongside 20,000km of new roads and highways.

    Due to retail at a similar price point to the Scandinavian DLC released back in May 2015, the Vive La France pack should come in below £15.00 on Steam, however a final price has not yet been revealed by the studio.

    "Vive La France !" map expansion for Euro Truck Simulator 2 is going to be released December 5, 2016. To be more specific, we are aiming at 4 pm Prague time (GMT+1) on Monday, that's when the activation keys should be enabled and the DLC will be ready for download and purchase.

    We are going to price it the same as Scandinavia map add-on on the channels that are under our control (like Steam - here is the "Vive la France !" coming soon page). There may be small price and timing differences on local markets, in retail, or at places like Amazon, where we do not have the power to enforce strict pricing policy.

    Everything is happening very quickly, we were still not sure about the final date a week ago, as we have been thoroughly testing and polishing the DLC pretty much until today. Now we want to give you a chance to play the expanded game as soon as possible. A week of preparations is sufficient to arrange the release on digital channels, but our retail publishing partners will be struggling with manufacturing deadlines, so some sales channels may take longer to stock the add-on."

    I've got the Universal Adapter and use a big ass old wooden wheel for ETS2/ATS. Ok its not strictly authentic, but its huge size makes me feel like I'm truckin' along :) Just need one of those turning knob things and I'm full on ready to roll. In fact I feel a Blue Peter moment coming on where I convert an old washing powder holder into something using gaffer tape. Now if they could get VR implemented I'd have the feel, without having to look at the ghastly contraption I've made on the rim. Awesome.

    Amazing! How many people are working on producing these expansions? They seem to roll out very fast and contain huge amounts of original content.

    The content creators of ETS2 do an amazing job with the of the visual look of this Sim and although not ultra realistic, to me personally it has a great artistic style which is pleasing to the eye.

    Looking forward to this and ATS's map re-scale. Hoping that once both are Live, the Oculus Beta versions will be brought up to date.

    So far it is looking good and I like it. You will even have some crazy french drivers passing you while driving at 130 on the highway with a limited speed of 130. That's reminds me home;). But, I forgot how often we have tolls in France and I would say when you have an accelerated map they jump at you, almost to often. You have to remember though, that you do not pay every time you are going through them. You have an entry and an exit toll, and that is the one you pay. There is few Toll companies in France, but they are covering different areas that are not contiguous. And without agreement, because they all want their own money. Sharing must not be good for some reasons.
    Otherwise the DLC is good, with some good details and points of interest. I haven't found any bug so far.
