Trade Connections - France



We would like to invite you to a new World of Trucks event.

The grand vision of World of Trucks has been keeping a dedicated team of senior designers and programmers at SCS Software fully busy for several years already, and there is still a ton of work ahead of them until they are ready to unveil the next major phase of it. Fortunately, there are smaller milestones along the way that will allow us to bring something new for you, and one of them is better support for "meta game" events. Automating more of the event infrastructure means that we can organize more events per year, and with freshly introduced support for Steam Inventory, there is also a better way to give cool little rewards to successful participants. We used to depend on the somewhat clumsy system of redeemable Steam Keys and heavy DLCs, but now with Steam Inventory drops, we can work with individual pieces of content.

To promote our "Vive la France !" map expansion, our first event of this new type is centered on the new game region. 


Help us strengthen the economic relations of France with the rest of Europe! Kick the economy to a higher gear, and establish new Trade Connections!

It's surely going to be a ton of work, but we have a special reward for everyone ready to help. Can we count on you?

Now straight to the rules of this event:

To get the reward for this event, your goal is to complete a delivery of any cargo to or from France with at least 10 other countries in Europe. The event will last for a whole month, giving you plenty of time to complete it until October 1.

We are introducing a new feature to World of Trucks called the 'Log Book' - it will allow you to check on your past transportation jobs. Refer to it to check on your progress in the event.

If you'll pass this requirement, you will get a special reward, which includes:

- 'Heart of France' - an interior copper statue decoration inspired by France's iconic landmark


Plus a random drop reward:

- 3 random country pennants to further customize your truck interior


As we are taking advantage of Steam's very own Inventory infrastructure, there are a couple of features that come along with it. The individual items can be traded or even sold through Steam, which may create interesting interactions. Just remember that if you get rid of a particular Inventory item, you will no longer be able to see it in the game's Upgrade Shop and equip your truck with it.
