In the last blog post by SCS, they showed a handful of screenshots from Norway! Prehaps hinting at a Going North/Scandinavian DLC!

Here we are, driving over new roads somewhere in the Nordics. Maybe you want to take a small peek, too?



Every time we set to work on a new world expansion, production logic would dictate that we should restrain ourselves to good-enough quality and just get the job done. After all, there are hundreds of thousands of players out there who always want more, and as fast as possible. There is definitely a very vocal part of the fan community showing lots of impatience with us.



Yet every single time, the desire to improve upon our previous work is stronger. The art and design team's push to raise the bar puts the pressure on the programming team, too. There is always the priority to improve our tool-chain, to improve the way we build the world, and not to lose performance even if we populate the world with richer content...



Our goals for the upcoming major world expansion is more efficient rendering, more impressive and true-to-life environments...



As before releasing Euro Truck Simulator 2, and before releasing Going East!, our bet is that our fans and customers are going to reward our ambition to ever improve. Even if it means that it's quite hard to get a reasonable estimate on when the work is going to be finished, as our grumbling publishing partners would attest! ;)

Finally we will see a map expansion. If we combine promods,poland rebuidling,going east and going north the map will be HUGE! We will have tonnes of km to explore. Soon we will see promods 1.7 which will expand the map even more.

I kind of think this expansion would be unnecessary cause the ProMods(@Nico ) have already done a brilliant job of mapping the northern Europe,

Hi guys, as we're progressing to put more things together for the next release, we feel the need to express an advance warning. It's highly likely that the next release of ProMods will REQUIRE the Going East DLC. This means that you will not be able to play ProMods if you do not have the DLC. We hope that by letting you know early you will be able to buy the DLC early, maybe in some Steam Sale. If one occurs we will report it here to remind you.
Maybe this will sadden some users but the fact is that the European map is expanding in such a way that it would be impossible to miss the roads in between. Hopefully you will all still follow along

I love how SCS is still working hard on ETS2.

Their expansion looks very promising so far! :)
I guess we can expect some higher quality content from them for the future.

Most game designers will release a game, then update it every so often. But with SCS, they update it with big changes and improvements and create some amazing DLC
