Mercedes-Benz Actros model

The Actros was one of the first 3D truck models that we have started working on when we commenced the Euro Truck Simulator 2 project. Time is flying a bit too fast for us, the New Actros was launched meanwhile to replace the MP3, but this model would definitely make a great addition to the ETS2 truck fleet.

We have been involved in licensing talks with Daimler ever since we have met their representatives at IAA Hannover over a year ago. Honestly this is one of the tougher nuts to crack, and the next few weeks will be decisive. It would be a pity to have to pretend in our game that such a prominent brand doesn't exist, when the game will be proudly showing so many other real European truck brands. Perhaps if we can attract a lot of views of this new YouTube movie we will have another important argument to use in our licensing discussion. Our ambition hasn't be fully satisfied just with the MP3 model ;-).

For the newcomers to our blog and SCS YouTube Channel, before the weekend we thought it would be nice to give you a wrap-up of the various ETS2 movies that we have published so far, and the following playlist might do the trick:
