Trucks & Trailers

We thought we still had a bit more time to prepare before publishing the information about our new small game, but it looks like our German publishing partner - rondomedia - has started the PR machine a bit earlier than we expected, and so we can no longer keep this secret.

For several months, a small group of people at SCS Software has been working on a skunkworks project that we call Trucks & Trailers. We used the project to develop and test new graphics technology and new concepts. But our ambition was also to evolve the gameplay prototype into a complete game. A game that would not be as complex and full featured as our bigger simulator series, yet provide enough fun. A game concentrating on one specific skill that every truck driver needs to master - navigating tight spaces with the tractor-trailer. It's a very straightforward concept - no company management, not even point A to point B cargo delivery, just pure game of skill. Initially we viewed in narrowly as a game packed with park-this-truck-here types of challenges, but over time we have expanded the view to include also drive against the clock through various obstacle courses.

The game is not finished yet, we still have a few short months ahead of us to wrap it up. But Trucks & Trailers should be on the store shelves much sooner than Euro Truck Simulator 2, and at a much cheaper price point, so we hope that you will find it a worthwhile appetizer. Trucks & Trailers borrows some things from our older games, but there are also a lot of new models, assets and features in it that are developed for Euro Truck Simulator 2. So you should get a great preview of the technology changes, the new shading system, and also you should be able to drive some of the new tractors that are being built for ETS2. We think it's a perfect little game to help you keep yourselves entertained while waiting for Euro Truck Simulator 2 to be released!

The movies below do not represent the final game, they are not official trailers. The videos are showing work-in-progress state of the game, actually they are both several weeks old, and were originally created for our private discussions about the game with the distributors. We plan to publish new screens and better movies in the upcoming days and weeks.

  2. I didn't expect the secret project to be so close from the trucking game - and I really liked it!

    The environment shows that some "levels" are difficult, it makes us happy, because in older series there was much space to park. This game will surely "train" us for ETS2.

    I'm glad to see the low cabin Scania instead of high/top lines only! And the people walking by the depot is really cool.

    Even with all mirrors an shadows it seems to run smooth - another point ;)

    I'm looking forward it as soon as it gets able to buy by internet, because in Brazil I haven't seen none of your games so far :/

    Well, I've written it many times, but once again:
    Good work SCS!

  3. Very nice, I like it! SCS, I BEG you, for your next video, whether ETS2 or T & T, show the Volvo FH16 interior animations and exterior. Please!

    Thanks in advance.

  5. Hi SCS!

    Thanks for the update. These "tight spaces" challenges are exactly one of the most fun moments in a trucking game. I hope you are also going to include similar challenges to ETS2. These challenges could be at start positions (depots), destinations, and resting places / gas stations. I will definitely buy this little game as well.

  9. AWESOME!!! Can't wait, what price on that baby?

  10. You've got one hell of a driver there! Good job parking that trailer!
    The game looks awesome and the tv replay feature is an excellent improvement.
    This Trucks&Trailers game is going to be a lot of fun, testing maneuvering skills, for a change. Many of us might find it more appealling than ETS, even! Thumbs up, all the way!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Just an idea for ETS2: make the humans to pass on the pedestrian crossings, and you have to give them priority to pass; it would be great and more real.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Good day SCS

    Congratulations, because the videos show the little game is very fun and challenging ...

    We will have people walking up to the companies. Keep up the great work. And put a double trailer to complicate the missions of the game!

  14. Walking People like in Romanian Map! :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. Pls SCS support the logitech 900 degree wheel, POV function etc. And we want 8x4 truck, MAN, Scania etc. pls,pls,pls,pls,pls!!!!!! You are the best!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Qua graphics a big plus, but those ingame sounds made me turn off both vids...

    Please guys, ffs make some decent engine sounds and car sounds, now they all sound like freakin vacuumcleaners. Sounds can even be made by the community so why can't a professional game studio develop some proper ones ?


    Also the trucks take off far too quickly, like F1 cars. from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds, not realistic and not a simulator. Check OMSI bus simulator to see how engine and torque and 'power' of trucks has to be.


    I hope you do read this and take note and react on it in some way, because the two things I stated here are carried by alot of players of your games. We are asking this since 18WOS haulin.

  17. Ahaa...This is not Euro Truck Simulator 2 !!! OK...I am waiting for Euro Truck Simulator 2 and this small game help me with it :) I will not longer boring while waiting for Euro Truck Simulator 2 :) I play this :) Good work SCS :) Very good work :)

  18. Very good. But one query:

  20. Good!

  21. It would be good to open the left door and look out while reversing :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. SCS SOFTWARE, WHEN WILL THE RELEASE DATE?

    ANSWER ME PLEASE

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hello everyone.
    Well, it takes just a starter because the appetite pending ETS2 is growing day by day, screenshot after screenshot. In addition to me it takes just a driving school to improve his maneuvers with the trailer in tight spaces. Perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  24. The purchase is guaranteed. I want to contribute to financing ETS2 buying Trucks & Trailers.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hey is a good game, so we can try out the new vehicles and the new graphics engine. Only one observation: The braking seems too abrupt and the truck seems to slip into the curve, I guess you fix these problems because it is a WIP game

  26. Release date: 17.06.2011 from Rondomedia

    ReplyDelete
  37. Looks great but the main game will still be free roam like ets1 i hope where you make your own decisions for delivery.

    ReplyDelete
  38. T & T will be a fantastic game. I look forward to at least tie the arrival of ETS2. Good for tight spaces, but the best pedestrian, I hope he will also ETS2.
    Sorry for saying so, but the biggest challenge would be to reverse a double trailer.
    Thank you SCS!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Optimise for G25/27 ;)

    Interesting game :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. great Job plz make it work on the g27 it would make it even more great!! will there be any rigids because they're completally different to reverse than the artics

    ReplyDelete
  49. Will be Ai buses in ETS2?!
    If you already train will be included...

    ReplyDelete
  50. Excellent work SCS! The game will be more realistic if you put a lot of single roads, people in the streets and a lot of traffic.

    ReplyDelete
  51. definetly a buy when it will be possible in my country hope it doeosnt late the ETS2!

  56. Yo,

    dam guys who cares about renaults, still annoying spams here with the same meaning "we wanna see renaults" ... imo best will be delete all renaults from the game xD.

    Scs, this is amazing develop.. warehouses are gr8 looking included the goodies which are visible around the docks, AWESOME! Take care with it, sure that everyone wanna already play it etc, but i preffer if you will take few months more to get the best look of the game than play game which will be done on half of less... so take easy our impatient comments and really take care.

  61. Fyzika hry je furt směšná, kterou umocňuje zvuk vysavače. Jak hrkat angličákama po koberci. Doporučuju si zahrát nějaký HC sim. Pro představu postačí i Omsi. Jiná fyzikální úroveň, jiná dimenze zvuků, celková multifunkčnost. Za ten termín simulator v názvu by jste zasloužili ukamenovat. Njn. Takhle to vypadá když hru vyrábí programátoři, kteří nikdy v trucku neseděli. Začarovanej kruh...

    ReplyDelete
  62. OMSI is shit. That's not a game, it's only very difficult simulation..... But Truck and Trailers is game for fun, not hardcore simulation ;)

    Good work SCS. I liked it! And do not take those envious comments seriously. Some people apparently have nothing better to do than to constantly complain.

    ReplyDelete
  63. double, double, double - we wan't double

    ReplyDelete
  64. Great job done for an interesting concept.

    I just wonder if you only plan players will have to park trailers in difficult places or if you also think to difficult driving situations, like for example narrow roads in mountains with dangerous bends. Thanks.

  67. hey this is awesome keep up the good work!
    if you can it would be cool to enter/exit truck and do other things on trailersuch as lift up the legs and connecting the wires for electric from truck to trailer,open the doors of trailer if exist etc.this would be the dream of a truck gamer!
    cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Creating a small skill-based game from Euro Truck content? You've got me with this one, guys. Let's hope my editors will find the idea great too, so I can write a review on T&T as soon as it's released. Fingers crossed...

    Also: It was just so freakin' awesome to see animated pedestrians at the warehouse! I seriously hope they are also actual ETS2 assets... ;-)

  72. SCS- you did a great job to pick up the qulity of you'r game! But there is physics problem, on 1:25 min (2nd vidio)- truck is stop to havy, in one second and without body tilting.
    One more thing, it's sound inside the cab- it's not bad, but incorect, not like real truck sounds inside.
    Anyway, for project which are in procces, everything is loocking well. Good luck to you, on you'r job! Sorry for my english.

  76. i like the games of scs i hope ets2 will create a new world of trucking i saw images and trailers of ets2 its simply awesome. the engine sound is not realstic. the engine suonds should match the real ones... so far you have done well and keep going....... scs rockzzzzzzzz

    ReplyDelete
  77. I think it's a good idea ;) But I like to deliver the cargo like in Euro Truck Simulator and in German Truck Simulator. I think is possible do a carrer and navigating tight spaces with the tractor-trailer.

    Well, see you soon

  83. la verdad q me desilusiono bastante el truck y trailers yo pense q tenias mas libertad en el juego como ir de cuidad a cuidad entrgando los cargamentos , pero solo estamos restringidos a estacionar,. el juego cuenta con una mejora notable ante los otros muy buenos graficos y jugabilidad tendre q esperar por el ets2 de mientras sigo con el german truck igual aguante el TyT muy bueno el esfuerzo de los creadores felicitaciones

    ReplyDelete
  84. I love it, the shading and the dynamic weather effects it looks aweome. its brilliant really. the problem with the big game is it is far too big, point a to point b drop offs are far too long and bordem sets in too quickly on longgggg hauls. what you need to develop is a game like this trucks an trailers. and have diliverys. but for like neibouring towns. ya know no more than 20 or 30 mile drivea. even less than that. i beleive that this way you can work on better citys,and more realistic town citys and villages. the big games there good, but there not great,, truccks and trailers is awesome. i really do enjoy driving these trucks. i like the challanges also. its on its way to be something awesome as long as dont start the 300 400 500 mile diliverys. short and sweet is much better, and gives you a chance to give us challanging routes around a real town or city street. and some moterways are ok. but the big games all moterways. and not very enjoyable. trucks and trailers its adictive, i looking forward to see future truck sims after this brilliant realease. Mint. sorted. ACE

  88. For someone who is paying a driving school to learn and obtain a license, the cost of the program and a suitable set of controls will be paid for in two lessons. (4 Hrs @ $110/ hour) I used UK truck sim for that very purpose....this (T&T) hits the spot!
