SCS Software, the developer of American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2, has announced the creation of the Ukrainian Paint Jobs Pack DLC for both games, with all funds raised going to support the victims of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.“While our teams are multinational, the core of the company has its roots in the city of Prague in the Czech Republic,” SCS Software said in a statement. statement. “The history of our country keeps the memory of sad events that are very similar to what happened in Ukraine in recent days, weeks, and months. We see a very close parallel with what happened here back in 1938 and 1968. and it leaves us deeply disturbed and full of emotion and pain that the modern world must once again witness such terrible times.”
SCS said it had already donated more than €20,000 ($22,400) to “several charities” and promised that the financial assistance would continue in the coming days and weeks.
“We have also redeployed part of our team to immediately start work on the much needed DLC – Ukrainian Paint Jobs Pack, which we are in a hurry to deliver to the Steam store as soon as possible and from which we are going to donate 100% of the income to those in need,” SCS said.
Interestingly, the next DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2 was supposed to be the Heart of Russia, including Moscow, the Volga and Oka rivers, centuries-old villages, and forests. This was announced in March 2021, but there is still no release date – I contacted SCS to ask if the intrusion will affect the development of this expansion and will let you know if I get a response.
