SCS have released today what they've called their World Of Trucks Report - it basically just gives an insight into some of the cool new features that will be coming soon to ETS2 through world of trucks!

Most of the post introduces the idea of "Contracts" that you select through the WoT website then carry out in game.. What do you think? Maybe a clever way for them to introduce multi drops in the future? Let us know! :)




We haven't reported much recently about what is going on with our World of Trucks vision. Yet through all our recent releases, in the deepest and darkest caverns of our office, a small team has been integrating networking code, programming the back-end servers, and establishing base economical design structures of World of Trucks. The project is very much alive, although we have to admit that we are slower in being able to roll out the first wave of features than we hoped a year ago.

We are about to achieve an internal milestone at last, and we'll start preparing the first proof of concept test with the World of Trucks community at large. The plan is to provide the facility to take jobs via the Job Market on the World of Trucks website to deliver inside our Euro Truck Simulator 2 game, and have the results reported and stats updated back on the WoTr site..




With such a system in place, we'll open up a route to do more frequent special events (still remember last XMas gift delivery event?). Thanks to a system of events or "quests" provided via World of Trucks, we should be able to spice up the experience for some of our most hard core players who play the game every day. But that's only a start, the "online jobs" system should be at the core of a major upgrade of World of Trucks eventually, providing robust Virtual Truck Companies support.



But for now, let's show you a hint of what's coming in the first wave. We call the new online delivery jobs "Contracts" - you will sign up for them directly from the World of Trucks website. In the current form, the presentation is a kind of mixture between Quick Jobs and Freight Market you are used to seeing in ETS2. It allows for performing the jobs using a stock truck as configured in the standard game, but it doesn't rule out the use of modded trucks. Completing the contracts will also still contribute to your progress through the normal campaign of the game, adding the appropriate XPs and money earned to your bank account.

Certainly interesting that's for sure. Not entirely sure where they'll take it but it's going to be intriguing what they do.

Only thing I'm left wondering is what's wrong with the job selection things already in the game that they need to replace it? :P

I see no reason to place it in WOT instead of the actual game, just an excuse to give WOT more functionality, could easily be done in game instead. Asides from that, they could expand the system to be like the one in 18WOS haulin', where you would assign drivers to a contract, with there permanent trailer and truck assigned. would also be a step closer to trailer ownership, which frankly, everyone wants, don't even know why SCS hasn't even talked about it, when its one of the most requested feature that is actually a reasonable request.
