At Last!

We are looking forward to welcoming new truck simulation game players - Euro Truck Simulator was published on Steam just a few minutes ago.

Update 1 am Prague time:

We just got word from Valve, the original ETS2 Product Keys (also known as CD keys though they are not necessarily only from CD editions of the game) should as of now activate the game. Please try again if you've failed to activate the game on Steam before!

  1. Will one have to download the game on Steam again (of course back up your profile and live_streams.sii and mods) or is there some way to trick Steam into recognizing the already existing installation?

    1. you can probably just copy the game folder into your steam library folder

      Delete
    2. I'd copy the main data but leave the other misc files, then verify with Steam to sort that out.

      Delete
    3. I think it will be like this (don't know until the activation will be work)
      1. Activate key
      2. Start download (preparing files)
      3. After preparing files will be completed close steam
      4. Find ets2 folder in steamapps
      5. Copy your game and overwrite all files
      6. Run steam and verify integrity game files (for 100% sure that copying completed succesfully)

      probably should work

  5. When can I activate my key from retail version? Buy it from russian distributor Akella.

  6. I bought it from GameTap at launch day. Glad I don't have to buy it twice. I was worried about it.

  7. Will I be able to activate offline version from this site with steam key? Many people are interested in this too. Thanks

    1. Sorry if I'm rude (because of same comments again and again in this and previous post), but can you read?

      "We have provided Steam with a database of all Product Keys..."

      "It should be possible very soon."

      That just means there is some (hopefully small) issue and you'll be sooner or later able to activate it on Steam. It's not nice, I know, but it's software, and errors happens (not to mention human factor).

      Delete
    2. You probably misunderstood me. I just bought steam version and I was curious will steam key work with version from ETS2 site..

      Delete
    3. Oh sorry! There were so many similar comments that it was me who didn't read yours properly. In fact you asked exactly opposite question. Sorry again.

      Delete
    4. It's OK, but I would like to get an answer to my question - So I own game on steam now and say I would like to play a DRM free offline version, will I have to buy the game twice? Or the steam key works with this ->eurotrucksimulator2.com/download.php ?

      Delete
  8. What happened to the localized product feature text that was meant to be on Steam?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Does the activate ETS2 on steam only work with boxed versions? I have my digital download key from email, and its saying its not valid.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Will the future DLC´s be aviable on Steam, too?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, Steam doesn't allow you to publish your game anymore if you don't put the DLCs on sale there as well.

      Delete
  11. i can't active the retail on steam...

    how hard was that?

    ReplyDelete
  12. LOL I just saw it on steam. Congrats !

    I'll think now if to buy it :) I need to see in this game ticket for not taking sleep because this bothered me the most. Also tiredness is not at all dangerous. It barelly goes to black and there is no lag in steering or using brake pedals ect. If this will be implemented give me info about it on steam (Cosm1c_Gam3r) then ill buy it on steam or maybe from internet store in Poland.

    Good luck in selling and further developing game! :)

  13. WOO! Congratulations guys. Can't wait to see what DLC content you have in store for us. Thanks for the hard work!

    ReplyDelete
  14. You can't activate your keys for the moment as Steam haven't processed the keys in their database yet.

    ReplyDelete

  18. I can't activate my retail copy, Steam complains of "invalid serial code" -- I'm willing to provide photographic evidence of the jewel case+manual with the cdkey printed on it.

    1. Ah, never mind, I see you haven't announced key functionality as active yet. Sorry! :)

    2. Works like a charm!! Thank you, SCS! The game is amazing and so are you, I can't wait to see what you bring next :)

      Delete
    3. So how do you download/activate from Steam without first purchasing the game again? Thanks

      Delete
    4. open games tab, select activate product key and enter the eurotruck2 key you have. then go to games, find the game and install it.

  34. If I buy ETS2 on Steam now, will I also get the Linux version when it comes out? (I presume it'll be on Steam too.)

    Also, will there be multiplayer/co-op of any sort? I'd be happy with something as simple as having a buddy in the truck with me and the ability to switch the driver so you don't get too tired on long trips.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hmmm. I managed to get steam to accept my CD-key, but there it stopped. It just doesn't show up in the list of games.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Congratulations for the launch on Steam! Good luck with the further development!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nice going SCS. I saw you guys topping the sales charts at Steam as well.

    Could you please explain the changes from the version via Steam against the retail version? After all the retail is at version 1.2.5.1 as Steam is at 1.2.6.1?

    Also a request. With the sales doing so great. Can we expect multiplayer abilities being added after the Linux version goes live? I would really love this, so I can start a trucking company with my old dad and use our headsets as CB's. :D

  38. I bought this game from gamekeystore.net but when i try to activate in steam it shows invalid.any help please?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. On the gamekeystore.net page for ETS2 it says:
      "No Steam: The key cannot be activated via Steam but only through the game integrated multiplayer."

      Delete
    2. But its still the retail version so the key should be working on steam right?.

      Delete
    3. That means the key is fake..

      Delete
    4. the how did the demo got unlocked if it was a fake key?.

      I bought the game from here
      http://www.gamekeystore.net/store/euro-truck-similator-2-retail-cdkey?filter_name=euro%20truck%20simulator%202

      Delete
    5. it is fake.. as it is from keygen.. and can unlock demo. but not in scs's database and cannot pass steam security check, or if scs fix their weak security in next patch your key will not work

      Delete

  41. new Steam buyer here. Great sim, glad you made it to steam otherwise I'd probably have missed out.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Is the mac version coming out after linux? Game looks awesome! Glad sales are good.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Pleas make multiplayer for the game :)
    Will love to play and run along with them, often run in the same company,
    Where we build up the company into teams.

  44. just love to play this game, but in this time from the release date and the latest patch, there is nothing new... hope will be very soon any new upgrades, new patches, new roads on the map, new countries in the map, new weather improvements (snow,...).
    Really hoping for any new stuff in ETS2, but not to forget would be great to add in the job list new products, like audio-tv stuff, computers, any kinds of materials, construcion materials, new foods, food tankers, etc. Really hoping any new stuff will be downable with the patches or from your download section. I'm two times a week on this blog site and nothing new about new items for the ETS2 game. Please SCS, can you account this for the game. I really hope so. Many of us would like to see new items and other stuff that can improve this driving simulation. With regards, Tony & Alex (Lj, Slo).
    PS: thanks for adding Slo language in the game, we love it. :)

  47. Awesome! But you promised to include Steamworks features like achievements, statistics, steam cloud and stuff. Is it still on to-do list? Thanks.

  48. Loving the game, really great.
    Been playing git with 3d vision which works really well.
    Only problem is when it rains, some of the raindrops are inside the cab.
    Can this be resolved?
