SCS Software has announced in a blog post that trailer ownership, a long-standing request from the hardcore Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator community, will be coming to both titles in a future update.
Trailer ownership has been requested for years, and it’s coming at last, as a major part of the upcoming 1.32 update both for Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator.
Trailer ownership will allow players to not only maintain a fleet of trucks and drivers but also of various trailers. Instead of contracts providing you with the freight and the container, virtual trucking company owners will have to ensure their stable of trailers is adequate to fulfill the various needs of contracts. Trailer ownership is not a small change that is required to be made to both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator, so SCS Software has a lot of work on their hands.
We had to decide on what is essential and concentrate on this core. In the upcoming update, there are still some elements left where we see an opportunity to go deeper eventually. Some trailer classes have not been refurbished yet so that they have not been made available for trailer ownership, this will have to wait for a future update, too. We are hopeful that the new feature will be accepted positively especially by the hardcore part of the truck sim players, as we have created not just a fully-fledged equivalent to the existing truck upgrade shop, but there’s so much more included.
Each game will be updated with the ability to own and fully customize a variety of trailer classes, similar to how trucks are customized in an upgrade shop.
The new feature is slated to be included in the upcoming 1.32 version of both titles and will be extensively tested via open betas. For more information on trailer ownership, read SCS Software’s full blog post.
