Euro Truck and American Truck Simulator are games with very interesting fidelity, amusing thousands of players around the world. Both games have been supported over the past few years, especially Euro Truck Simulator 2, and have featured new content and some of the best mods in the segment – which expand the possibilities beyond the tangible on the part of the development team.

During the past few months, the SCS Software has been developing what will be the next DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2, Portugal and Spain – something much awaited by the community, as we speak of the Iberian Peninsula (the most western part of the whole of continental Europe). Starting from this new DLC, the Czech development team took the opportunity to improve the climate and light cycle for both Euro Truck and American Truck, taking advantage of the new generations of graphics cards.

The new lighting system arrived with update 1.40 and brings a new dimension to any trip between cities and nations, as it allows to increase realism in a more consistent way. Anyone who has played any of these two simulators, knows that the monotony of long journeys is one of the problems. Thinking about it, there is a mod – which, in truth, almost seems part of the game -, the TruckersMP, which allows players to interact with each other on servers, eliminating the persecution of NPCs and providing enjoyable truck trips with strangers and friends.

The update was announced last week and aims to improve the way sunlight and headlights interact with the game and with us. The environment also becomes more realistic as the hours go by. The development team even revealed that some areas of Europe that have very particular climates and lighting, end up being well portrayed with this improvement.

However, this update offers more than just new climate and lighting systems. Over the past few years, the team has sought to remaster or redo some of the textures used within the game, both from trucks, as from other vehicles and even from the road itself. The particularities of certain regions: in buildings, forests, vacant lots, among other differentiating factors were also taken into account.

These new lighting techniques work, and are most notorious in severe weather conditions, adding a level of drama that has always been absent in these truck simulators.

The update has been available since last Tuesday, so we suggest that you take the time to play one of these fantastic games (if you like to drive). In addition, Euro Truck Simulator 2 is on sale on Steam for € 4.99 – a very attractive value for the style. The Iberian Peninsula DLC is expected to be launched in April this year.
