Euro Truck Simulator "Goes Gold"

For immediate release

This summer Excalibur Publishing Ltd. will launch‘Euro Truck Simulator’ in the UK market. This game is a refreshing alternative to the flood of also ran racing games for PCs and consoles and brings to mind recent news of haulage strikes and rising fuel prices.

This game not only appeals to lorry enthusiasts but also to anyone who loves to drive and enjoys the scenery along the way. The aim of the game is to grow your business by earning money to buy new lorries and unlocking new routes to countries throughout mainland Europe. You can achieve this by taking on jobs to collect and deliver cargo within a given time limit. The economical challenge lies in planning your routes including petrol stops in the given time frame, budgeting for payments for refuelling as well as damages to the lorry, cargo and any traffic offences.

Thanks to SCS Software (leading developers known in the gaming world for creating Bus Simulator, etc.) developing the graphics, this game offers a surprising amount of graphic detail in lorries, interior of cabins, routes and accurate realistic scenery. The player genuinely gains an insight into the geography of Europe by planning their routes with the help of maps. The road network is based on genuine European roads and cities and featured trucks are meticulously modelled exclusively on European truck designs.

Robert Stallibrass of Excalibur Publishing says:“The graphics are outstanding. Not only can you‘look’ around the cabin from the driver’s seat and see the detail, but all gauges and levers are fully functional allowing you to indicate, switch on lights, turn on high-beams as well as checking your speed on the fully functional speedometer.”

The product will retail at£29.99, is and will officially hit the shelves on August 29, 2008.
