Euro Truck Simulator 2: Scandinavia DLC out now

The Scandinavia DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2 is out today, and SCS Software has released the official launch trailer.

The DLC features Denmark, Sweden and Norway and adds 27 new cities, new industries and over 80 new cargo.

As we previously saw from the dev diaries, the Scandinavia expansion will be the most detailed yet. SCS has substantially raised the attention given to the art and graphics departments of the game, hopefully resulting in more varied and beautiful landscapes.

The DLC costs 18€ on Steam, and the first reviews seem to be positive, confirming that there's a lot of attention on the details of the new areas.

What do you think? Are you gonna expand your truckin' to the North? Let us know in the comments!

visual updates are impressive, but those are not only limited to scandivania pack, are they?
Will definitely buy it at some point, this game is lots of fun

We actually don't know. I'm going to guess SCS will update the whole map sometime (if they haven't already). We've asked for a review code, but nothing yet.

Got it this morning along with the included Vikings paint pack and also German and Norwegian paint pack. Woohoo.

I'll get to exploring after work though, ugh.

I love this game but be prepared for a frame rate hit with the new DLC. I've had to lower settings all over the place just to keep at 60fps. I was running high to ultra before now it's medium.

all I can say is that the base game look has changed from what I remeber recently ( and I haven't bought the scandinavia pack yet)

I would love to add some deeper sim elements into this title if I had the chance, I have a soft spot for this title, and as I drive the things occasionally for some pocket money every now and then it would be pretty awesome to get in there and lend them some of my know how combined with real world experience....it is without doubt one of the coolest and most complete "generic" sims out there, shines out brightly in a world blighted by numerous "Sim This" and "Sim That" half baked titles.

Loving this DLC...worth every penny. The drive to the northernmost city on the map is amazing.

As a triple monitor user, i really wish xfire worked better for ets, but for now it looks great even at 720p on high settings. I can run at 1080x5760, but prefer the lower res with the settings jacked up and ultra smooth fps.
