It’s that time of year where truckers in Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator install their winter mods and hit the roads with a full thermos of eggnog. The fine folks at SCS Software are bringing the Grand Gift Delivery event to World of Trucks for a second year.
Grand Gift Delivery 2017
The Grand Gift Delivery event is essentially a list of contracts available via World of Trucks that asks players to assist Santa by distributing gifts throughout the reaches of both the Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator regions.
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!
To find the contracts you’re after, make sure that you look at the World of Trucks online contracts. They will not be found among the usual in-game contracts. Of course, truckers don’t work for free, so let’s have a look at what we stand to gain by helping Santa out.
The first thing you need to know about how to get paid for your assistance, is that there are two tiers of achievement. The first tier requires the completion of six gift delivery contracts. Tier 2 requires you to complete, yes, you guessed it, twelve deliveries. These tiers are unique to each game, so reaching a tier in Euro Truck Simulator 2 does not mean you qualify for prizes in American Truck Simulator. If you want it all, you’ll have to play both games.
Here’s what you get for reaching each of the tiers:
- Tier 1:
- Exclusive World of Trucks achievements for event completion
- Hanging cabin decorations – Xmas Ball and Plush Bear (ETS2), Polar Star and Polar Plush Bear (ATS)
- Main menu background theme – “Magic Time”
- Random five people who complete this Tier have a chance of winning a piece of physical merchandise from the SCS Software e-shop up to 50€
- Tier 2:
- Hanging cabin decorations – Polar Beast and Snowman Trucker (ETS2), Grizzly Bear and Snowman Trucker (ATS)
- Customizable paint-jobs “Crystal Dream” (ATS) and “Crystal Dimension” (ETS2)
- Main menu background theme – “On top of the world”
- Random five people who complete this Tier have a chance of winning a piece of physical merchandise from the SCS Software e-shop up to 100€
Those aren’t bad prizes for some pretty straightforward work. The event is now live and you can find out more details on the SCS Software blog. You were planning on truckin’ a lot over these holidays anyway, weren’t you?
