First Euro Truck Simulator 2 movie!

The presentation video is ready, and we couldn't wait till Monday to post it on YouTube and mention it here in the blog :-).

(tip: click through the movie and watch it in HD)

You can see that we still have a lot of work to do ahead of us to polish everything, but we hope that you will find the work in progress to be promising.

The intro part of the movie is not renderered in-engine, it's a quick grab from Maya. It represents the artistic direction we have in mind for presenting the trucks in the game's user interface screens - to tease the player with the cool high-detail models.

In the second half, we are showing an in-development Scania tractor in 4x2 and 6x4 axle configurations. Proper support for multiple steerable axles is introduced, and perhaps you can also appreciate the hint of working cabin suspension (still needs tweaks to the physics constants) and light & shadow play in the new 3D engine.
