Bendy double trailers are coming to American Truck Simulator [official site] and Euro Truck Simulator 2 [official site] this summer, which sounds a treat for serious truckers and a nightmare for me, an idiot who sees Truck Sim as a walking simulator following routes. To virtuatruckers, double trailers are a feature requested for years. To me, double trailers will surely be a way to crash and wedge even more as I try to turn and reverse, like a rambler who forgets they’re wearing a huge backpack and falls flat on their face every time their megabag bumps on a stile.
Developers SCS Software say in the announcement:
“After quite some years of internal discussions and frankly some frustrations and struggles to have the gameplay as well as technical side of multi-trailer physics support ironed out, we finally feel ready to reveal fresh info about our progress on doubles.
“It has taken us a long time, but hope never dies! We are polishing double trailers for inclusion in the next major updates for Euro Truck Simulator 2 as well as for American Truck Simulator.”
SCS hope to launch those free updates in early summer.
The gang are also working on unique oversized cargos for ATS and ETS2, things like heavy vehicles and machinery, though those will both be paid DLCs. Oh, and of course they’re working on New Mexico as the next DLC state for ATS; here, they recently shared a peek at some New Mexican buildings and landscape pieces.
