Trucks & Trailers Euro Truck Special: Manoeuvring Simulator
It came as surprise to us that SCS Software prepared new game for its German publishing partner - rondomedia in secret. For several months, a small group of people at SCS Software has been working on a skunkworks project called Trucks & Trailers. A game concentrating on one specific skill that every truck driver needs to master - navigating tight spaces with the tractor-trailer. It's a very straightforward concept - no company management, not even point A to point B cargo delivery, just pure game of skill. The game is not finished yet, SCS still has a few short months ahead of us to wrap it up. But Trucks & Trailers should be on the store shelves much sooner than Euro Truck Simulator 2. You can see 2 movies from development state on official SCS Blog website.
