Trucking along with yet another refresh, Euro Truck Simulator 2 will be giving the city of Erfurt a full facelift from the ground up.
Erfurt is the capital and biggest city in the Central German state of Thuringia. The old town is a hit for tourism, since the medieval city centre is very well preserved.
Attractions include the Merchants’ Bridge, Old Synagogue (the oldest still standing in Europe, actually), Cathedral Hill and Petersberg Citadel.
Announced on 10th February via the SCS Software blog, the Germany rework will be a complete rebuild from scratch.
Since many roads in Erfurt are not suitable for larger LKW vehicles due to the rich history surrounding them, the ETS2 contractors have instead focused their construction concept in the north.
Erfurt’s northern areas are a blend between residential buildings and rural, industrial parks.
These zones are home to warehouses and logistic centres, which provide drivers with an easy hub for daily deliveries and pick-ups.
The rework will also include a nearby farm and concrete plant, plus a rejuvenated road layout and junction for a more realistic vibe of what truly makes Erfurt pop.
Alongside the Germany rework, Euro Truck Simulator 2 has been teasing the contents of the upcoming 1.47 update, most recently the addition of Gas Cisterns.
And on 13th February, SCS Software delivered even more exciting news: Ownable Livestock Trailers will soon be purchasable, too.
If you’ve driven the roads of American Truck Simulator, these trailers are a staple to the game and a stable to the live cattle you’ll be transporting around Europe.
On top of some pretty cool chassis customisations, players can modify the following:
- Left/right/front/rear body
- Side protections plates/boxes
- Rear fenders
- Rear bumpers
- Rear mudflaps
Both the 1.47 update and Erfurt remodel are still a work in progress, so be sure to follow all Euro Truck Simulator 2 news on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok) for future launch dates.
