Over the Seas


Scandinavia is a very different space to work and create in than the territories we have created in the past - it's not just the different sights, it's the fact that the countries are not landlocked like most of the environments in existing Euro Truck Simulator 2 world.


Our previous post contained a general review of the map that might have given you some idea on the scale of the DLC. The Scandinavia territory in Euro Truck Simulator 2 will feature a total of 15 new ports and ferry locations that allow you to board the ferries directly.


We felt that ferries are an integral part of Scandinavian transportation and decided to go an extra mile to ensure that ship models and ferry locations in the game closely reflect the ferry ports and ships you can see in real life. We've spent considerable amount of time to recreate this aspect of Scandinavia in great detail - many of the ports in the expansion have the size of entire cities you've seen in current Euro Truck Simulator 2.


The sea transportation network will allow you to use alternate connections between locations in Scandinavia and other territories of the map, as the ferries will also connect destinations in Poland and United Kingdom. At the same time, we wanted to avoid abuse of the ferry system that would allow players to just "hop" around the map quickly without the need for much driving, so the ferry network is intentionally not as dense as in the real world.

  2. Fantastic! Finally we got a view of all the cities in the map, even the small ones like Södertälje and Hirtshals! Thank you!

  3. oooo cant wait to see if Helsingborg and Södertälje are the same as in real life. Although I would have though you would have had the Helsingborg to Helsingør crossing in there too. But still I cant wait for this DLC

  5. I can't wait for this DLC, but would you guys please add an option so that we can turn off the router to show routes via ferries as I personally prefer to drive on the roads you guys have made rather than the ferry routes

    ReplyDelete
  24. Very nice sights in this expansion, BUT I cannot agree with one of their poor marketing phrase: "..many of the ports in the expansion have the size of entire cities you've seen in current Euro Truck Simulator 2. "
    Who can say that in the actual ETS2 there are "CITIES" ? I can see just 5-6 streets, poor detailed in the core map (without details, decors...). Things changed a bit regarding the details in "Going East", and now with Scandinavia are getting 100x better. Thumb up !
    On the other hand, I insist further for economy modification on the higher levels. Where is the fun when you earn over 100.000 after one delivery ? Bonuses should be slightly decreased, (from 30% to 20%, for example...so on), and the main income also. Fuel economy of 35% on level 6 is again unrealistic.
    The game is not so bad, but could be much better, and less boring !

  31. yes it was a better more relaist picture of how it looks in reality and something more

    realistic of the ferry across the trades that exist in between scandinavia

    ps vibeke

    there is again crossing German land coil or england but the route you are talking about here is only found in between Denmark ok so this will be a bit will leading information here gives as when the bridge found in between Funen Jutland and in between Jutland and Seeland the we here in Denmark calls for great belt bridge

    and forbildels in between Sweden and Denmark which is both a bridge and tunnel for connection

    the sidtse information is something man should take with the husband doing

    in between Sweden and Denmark

  42. I must correct some people when they say that Finland is not part of Scandinavia.I did look into that subject from elsewhere then Wikipedia witch sometimes is wrong about different stuff.So i did read few dictionarys from different years and i must say i did found something like this from a dictionary,whitch is from 1964 and it stated and i quote Sweden,Norway,Denmark and South West Finland are part of Scandinavia.And those same countrys are also part of Fenno Scandia and these example areas are a part of that Fenno Scandia area.Like for exp.Karelia,Kola Peninsula and few other places.SCS did say that Scandinavia is not landlocked to any place.Well that is completely wrong,because you can drive your car from Sweden to Finland or Norway to Finland or Sweden to Norway or Norway to Sweden.And you can drive from any of those three countries to Russia.And you can take the bridge from Denmark to Sweden and drive to all of the other Nordic countries.I know that because i have been driving in those countries a lot.

  45. Great love it..

    But you guys in SCS have missed some ferry parts in Scandinavia.
    We have one ferry that's go from Gothenburg-Sweden to Kiel-Germany and one that's go from Helsingborg-Sweden to Helsingør-Denmark.. Those are some ferrys that's go with many trucks loading from Sweden to Europe..

  51. Hi,

    First of all I would like to congratulate SCS for developing this niche of PC games and giving the opportunity to players around the world to connect through ETS 2 and even Scania TS.
    Now, I have two questions, I hope you will clear them for me:
    1. Will it be able to add this expansion to the game, without having bought Going East in the past?
    2. How hard will it go down on system physics and will it require more of our PCs than the latest game release/update?

    Good luck developing and bringing more players into this world of ”truckers”.
    Thanks,
    Răzvan

  55. WOW!!! That'w perfect!!!
    These ferries are a very nice adition to the game!
    From what i see though, i'd like to ask something, when we exit the ferry are we going to to it in reverse?? because if you go inside normally like the pictures show, then you'd have to get out in reverse.
    That would be nice and more realistic and it would add a litle more dificulty to the game, wich is good!!
    I'm from greece and here we have hundreds of ferries conecting all the islands.
    Here the ships never dock with the front, only with the back, it's the only entrance. The trucks most usually enter the ship in reverse and exit it normally.

    If so, you pull the cat's tail, pulling the release DLC Scandinavia a penny to her price. Not 19 euros as it is written, and 2 euros. You'd better dlyanachalo release DLC Scandinavia. and then engaged in American Truсk Simulator, and you'll still half a year to release DLC Scandinavia unhappy with 20 cities. This is nonsense.
