Cruising the Balkans World of Trucks Event

Join us on Thursday, the 19th of October, as we celebrate the completion of the Balkans with the release of our West Balkans DLC and a special World Of Trucks event - Cruising The Balkans! In this event we are enabling players to take part using either West Balkans or Road to the Black Sea DLC, or both!

The new West Balkans DLC is offering 30 beautiful cities to discover. Together with the 30 unique cities of the Road to the Black Sea DLC, that's 60 amazing cities to explore in this event!

During #CruisingTheBalkans you'll explore beautiful landscapes and scenic routes past forests, rivers, mountains and coastlines, while contributing to the bountiful economy of both DLCs. With the region spreading so far and wide, it supports an incredibly wide variety of animals and wildlife. It is home to the grey wolf, brown bear, fallow and red deer, and the Dalmatian pelican, one of the biggest freshwater birds, which enjoys feeding on the many species of fish that can be found. Hermann's Tortoises, popular with tourists, can also be seen near many water areas and rivers.

Besides breathtaking nature, the Balkans also offers various economic regions of interest. On your journeys you'll drive through many unique cities, industrial areas, and large seaports that are crucial for its economy. Truckers can look forward to exploring new industries, like delivering Caravans to the Car Dealers where people make their travel dreams on wheels come true.

During your journey through the Balkans, you can look forward to many viewpoints and highlights of the new region of the West Balkans DLC:

  • Dubrovnik, coastal city with an impressive bridge offering a stunning view
  • DurrĂ«s Marina, a beautiful port
  • Pristina, picturesque city with narrow streets and small shops
  • Sarajevo, historic town of interesting architecture
  • Tara Bridge, famous mountainous location with a zip line

As with past cruising events, you can use your own trailer and experience all these in the external market!

Since Road to the Black Sea DLC and West Balkans DLC are part of the #CruisingTheBalkans event, with so many cities to experience, we are giving you the opportunity to complete a community goal and up to 2 personal goals, one for each DLC. Completing both personal goals will certainly be worth it since their rewards, when combined, will create an incredibly beautiful matching truck and trailer paint job combo!


Using External Contracts or External Market, with a World of Trucks-connected profile in Euro Truck Simulator 2, the community goal is to drive 300,000,000 km while delivering cargoes to or from any city in West Balkans and/or Road to the Black Sea DLCs.

This event offers you up to 2 personal goals to complete:

  • Personal goal for West Balkans DLC: Complete a delivery to or from at least 15 unique cities.
  • Personal goal for Road to the Black Sea DLC: Complete a delivery to or from at least 15 unique cities.

All jobs for the event need to be at least 200 km, or more.

You can check if your recent deliveries met these conditions using your Log Book in your World of Trucks profile.


  • Community: When the community goal of driving 300,000,000 km is met, and if the player has also achieved either personal goal, they will receive a hanging Dalmatian Pelican ornament as Steam inventory item.

  • Personal for West Balkans: Gain a personal World of Trucks Achievement and an awe-inspiring Nature's Embrace themed, ETS2 truck paint job Steam inventory item.

  • Personal for the Road to the Black Sea: Gain a personal World of Trucks Achievement and a beautiful Nature's Embrace themed, ETS2 trailer paint job Steam inventory item.

Note: In order to qualify for the community reward, you must complete at least one personal goal in Euro Truck Simulator 2. Each reward will be a Steam inventory item for Euro Truck Simulator 2. Once completed, claim your reward in the Events page on your World of Trucks profile.

The event will be concluded on Tuesday the 19th of December at 23:59 UTC.

We are eager to hear back from you about where you have been and what you have seen. With so much to explore, we think you'll be busy for some time! The whole SCS team is very proud of what has been accomplished with this release, and we look forward to seeing all your photos! So, please share your screenshots and videos with us using the hashtag #CruisingTheBalkans on our Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), and Instagram profiles and we will share our favourite ones (we may even feature some of them in a future blog post!).
