Euro Truck Simulator 2 is a vehicle simulation game developed and published by SCS Software for Microsoft Windows, Linux, and macOS and was initially released as open development on 19 October 2012.

Czech developer SCS Software released Euro Truck Simulator back in 2012, and the game has since developed a cult following—including several members of the PC Gamer team. But why? Well, fundamentally, because it’s good. It has satisfying driving physics, a vast, atmospheric map and a peaceful, stress-free way about it that you can easily lose an entire evening to. Fans of the game often describe it as hypnotic, and it really is.

Many people are playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 on Steam. That’s more than Artifact, Valve’s new card game, and giants like Garry’s Mod, The Witcher 3, and Football Manager. It might seem like an anomaly, but anyone who’s spent any time in this sim’s recreation of Europe will understand completely.

But what about hardcore players looking for the most realistic simulation possible? I wonder if catering to them is at odds with keeping the game accessible. “We work hard to keep both types of player in mind,” Šebor says. “We have lots of new features in development that will increase the satisfaction of exploring the world, which we believe both casual and hardcore fans will enjoy. But we do have to be careful not to get to the point where the game is too hard, where you feel like you need a commercial driving licence to play it.”
