The DLC Review

One job that is of vital importance to the global economy is that of a long haul trucker.

These professionals operate the big rigs that transport goods across the roadways of nations around the world. They often grapple with a variety of climates and terrains as well as master how to transport different types of goods.

In short, modern life would be impossible without them.

If the above sounds interesting to you, then you might be interested in Euro Truck Simulator 2  – Beyond the Baltic Sea, a themed expansion on the acclaimed Euro Truck Simulator series of sim games.

Overall the game adds 24 large and small cities to your map, each outfitted with regional architecture, cultural landmarks, and more. The attention to detail in re-creating environments both urban and natural is quite astounding.

The game also delves into regional eccentricities and quirks of local shipment. This means that tram, trains, and passenger cars are all faithfully represented as close to their real-world counterparts as possible. Included in the game is 30 all-new local industries and companies.

The game even features the Finland-only High Capacity Transport truck. This is a tractor with two long trailers attached to it.

As an expansion for Euro Truck Simulator 2 (2012), Beyond the Baltic Sea ports over all of the main game’s features such as expansion and different end-game goals. You can start out with one line and working for a company only to one day run it or own your own company or you can choose to remain a distance freight driver and test out all of the different trucks on offer. The choice is up to the player.

Praised for its ability to simulate what it is like to be a trucker and its attention to detail when it comes to delivering true-to-life vistas and locales, Beyond the Baltic Sea adds a ton of content to a game already brimming with it.

It doesn’t do anything to radically alter the formula of that game but does give players a noticeable amount of stuff to do.
