(The patch is really close now, or so we hope. We have "frozen" the assets and code several days ago, only hunting down a few remaining bugs. If it wasn't for a critical bug reported by our testers, the plan was actually to release the patch today. But life is cruel, and we need to go through another round of fixing and testing.)
Valve has introduced a new feature to their Steam platform recently - Steam Trading Cards.
If you have a fancy for collectibles extending your ETS2 experience, you can look forward to Euro Truck Simulator 2 trading cards on Steam. We have submitted our trading card assets for ETS2 on Steam just today, and we hear that they are approved and queued for release, hopefully soon.
We are featuring 7 trading cards, 5 profile backgrounds, and 10 emoticons. All of course under six levels of badges - all for your Gamer's collection.
Note that any genuine ETS2 Product Key can be used to activate the game on Steam, too.
