SCS Software, the developer of American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2, has announced that it is putting together a Ukrainian Paint Jobs Pack DLC for both games, with all funds raised going to support the victims of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
“Although our teams are multinational, the core of the company has its roots in the city of Prague, Czech Republic,” said SCS Software in a statement. “The history of our country bears a memory of sad events that resonate in a very similar way with what has happened in Ukraine over the past few days, weeks and months. We see a very close parallel to what happened here in 1938 and 1968, and it leaves us deeply concerned and filled with emotion and pain that the modern world is once again witnessing such horrific times.”
SCS said it has already donated more than €20,000 ($22,400) to “several charities” and promised the financial help will continue in the coming days and weeks.
“We’ve also relocated part of our team to immediately start working on a much-needed DLC – the Ukrainian Paint Jobs Pack, which we will be bringing to the Steam store as soon as possible and of which we will be donating 100%. of income to benefit those in need,” SCS said.
Interestingly, the next Euro Truck Simulator 2 DLC should be the heart of Russia, including Moscow, the Volga and Oka rivers, and centuries-old villages and forests. It was announced in March 2021 but doesn’t have a release date yet – I reached out to SCS to ask if the invasion will affect the development of this expansion and will update when I get a response.
