Operation Genoa Bridge: Conclusione

The #OperationGenoaBridge event is a success and we couldn't be more proud of our community! This task was by no means small, yet drivers from around the world united in Euro Truck Simulator 2 to help complete a new state of the art bridge in Italy.

With beacons ablaze and goal in mind, you set out on June 4th to deliver materials, fuel, and construction vehicles back and forth from each of the west and east depots. Just 24 hours after the event started, you had already reached 200,000 deliveries, and 72 hours after that, our community had smashed through the halfway mark of 500,000!

However, putting together this event was by no means an easy task. From creating cut scenes, special companies for the event to finding a road network solution that allowed everyone to take part; this was one of the more technically challenging events our team has created. We were very happy to learn that you really enjoyed the extra effort and detail that went into this event, especially the cut-scenes and the way the bridge was lit up at night in the colors of the Italian flag.

You also flooded our social media channels with many pictures & videos, with hundreds upon hundreds of posts on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #OperationGenoaBridge. It was great to see virtual trucking companies, streamers, and truckers from around the world participate in completing this event. Drivers who took part in TruckersMP were among some of the more patient truckers, where traffic jams of up to 3 hours were reported!

Many drivers even went the extra mile by completing more than the required personal goal. Some individuals even achieved over 100 personal deliveries during the event, incredible! To all of you we say thank you, no matter how large or little your input, you have helped complete and bring the new Genoa bridge into the Euro Truck Simulator 2 world.

While the real-life Genoa Bridge is still set to open in July of this year, we are excited to open its virtual counterpart for truckers in ETS2 to drive on. This new state of the art bridge is self-monitoring using solar power and has a sleek and modern look.

Don't forget to claim your rewards if you achieved your personal goal for this event! You can claim your rewards from by going to 'My Page' and then clicking on events. We hope you enjoy wearing your paint-job and hanging accessory with pride as a reminder of this event.

We look forward to seeing your in-game pictures with this newly completed bridge which you can share with us across our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). We'd like to once again thank you, our #BestCommunityEver, for heeding the call to help take part in this special World of Trucks event.
