Euro Truck Simulator 2 & American Truck Simulator: Event "Grand Gift Delivery 2017" has begun
The developers of Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator announced today on Steam, that in both titles the event "Grand Gift Delivery 2017" has begun with unique virtual and even real rewards.
Since it's a World of Trucks event where you have to pick up this special contracts, you'll need an account there. Chances are high that you already have it, if you like the games:
Santa needs our help!
Our 'On The Road' crew has just arrived from the North Pole. Santa's logistics network is having a hard time coping with deliveries of all the gifts, and SCS Software has been summoned for help. Honestly, though, our humble sim trailer is just not enough, the motion seats just take up too much space. Way more capacity is needed. It is clear that we need to turn to players of our games for help!
There are billions of gifts around the globe waiting for delivery, and we have duly informed Santa that we may only be able to help him with a tiny fraction of the number, and only in limited territories. Even with the addition of New Mexico to American Truck Simulator and Italia to Euro Truck Simulator 2, our coverage of the two continents is still not satisfactory, not to speak about the rest of the planet. Yes, we know! Now even Santa is pushing us hard to improve the coverage for the next year already - as if he planned to depend on us again and again.
For now, let's try to do what we can do. There are rewards waiting for everyone who'll join in! Santa has some special cabin toys and accessories straight from his domain for you. He's even willing to let you park your mighty diesel beasts at the North Pole - in a new main-menu background scene. How cool is that?
This World of Trucks event is a bit more complex than what we had in the previous seasons. Players of both American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2 will be able to participate, but each game is counted separately and provides its own set of achievements and rewards. On top of it, each game's event actually has two levels of accomplishment, and two tiers of rewards!
The rewards are not just digital this time. At the conclusion of the event, we'll draw five lucky winners for each game and each tier (that's 20 prizes in total) and offer you a choice of merchandise from our e-shop to pick your reward from.
