SCS Software company effort to secure official licenses of trucks to put into their games continues, now their focus is on Northern America. Courting the truck manufacturers - getting their attention and reaching the decision makers - is really not easy at all for a small company like SCS coming from outside of the transportation industry.
There is a little photo report on SCS Blog news. They have created a special demo based off an alpha build of American Truck Simulator for their corporate event, and they also tried to bounce it off the public to see the reaction.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 Scandinavian DLC is close
This month is full of information about incoming Scandinavian DLC for ETS2 game. SCS Software are switching into high gear in the final tuning and tweaking of the new DLC. As they are getting closer to the finish line on ETS2 Scandinavia DLC, it is time to show what they prepare for us.
Oslo happens to be one of the largest urban agglomerations featured in Scandinavia DLC, in fact Oslo and the surrounding areas is possibly the largest city SCS have built so far in Euro Truck Simulator 2. SCS are using new types of junctions and intersections extensively in Scandinavia, in this particular case to connect the city to the large port that incorporates a ferry terminal. LOOK AT HERE
Örebro is one of Swedish cities that is pretty much finished and ready for Scandinavia DLC. LOOK AT HERE
There is a small scale map to reveal the destination cities SCS are putting into this world expansion of ETS2. This little map doesn't tell the whole story - the highways, roads and city streets are now a much more detailed system than what we currently have in the older parts of our ETS2 universe.LOOK AT HERE

World of Speed Recommended Games
That is not truck game but I think it worth to support. World of Speed is a new generation online racing game for true high-speed aficionados. Experience the thrill of street driving with amazing graphics and dynamic controls.
Team races is unique World of Speed mode where overall victory depends not just on the personal skills of each player, but also on the smooth interaction of all team members. Get reliable partners together, assign roles, change your car for specific tasks and take your team to the top. Players can set up motor clubs and capture entire cities in Territory Battles. In addition, as the motor club grows it can access a club garage and a range of bonuses.
So look at this project HERE and support it. I think it is worth to do it.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 Scandinavian DLC and new Truck Models
SCS give us some fresh screenshots of Euro Truck Simulator 2 taken from the upcoming DLC Scandinavia, around the Linköping city
The very interesting information about new trucks in progress was published THERE as well. The truck fans have long suspected that another vehicle SCS Software surely must be building is the 2012 New Actros truck tractor. It has taken their a lot of time and effort to obtain the necessary license; to finally complete the "Big Seven" European truck manufacturers licenses. Look at the picture there...
The next truck model is the new DAF XF Euro 6 probably released in the second half of September this year. It is almost ready for final testing iterations. Completly news about DAF XF Euro 6 truck model available is HERE.
