Italy is coming to European Truck Simulator 2, with confirmation today that an Italian map expansion DLC is in the works from the SCS Software environment team. Although several Italian locations already exist in European Truck Simulator 2, SCS Software have made the decision to create an entire Italian map expansion similar in style to the last Vive La France pack released back in December. The Italian locations already in game will "receive an extra layer of polish to coincide with the DLC release", allowing those who decide against purchasing the DLC to still receive some enhancements to the game independent of the new map expansion pack. The new road networks and towns / cities will feature much of what makes Italy so iconic. Confirmed to be included will be such feature landscapes as "roads leading through the Apennines, where tunnels and bridges alternate with scenic vistas and curvy segments, opening the view to distant horizons". Although plenty of farmland and sea skirting passageways will be included, SCS have confirmed the new map should consist of "a relatively high concentration of cities and industries", surely giving gamers plenty to see and do once it releases (hopefully) towards the end of 2017. European Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator are available to purchase on the Steam platform right now. Like big riggin'?
