Excalibur Publishing Ltd. to launch upgraded Truck Simulator for the PC

For immediate release

After the successful launch of Euro Truck Simulator last summer, Excalibur Publishing Ltd. will introduce the new and upgraded‘Euro Truck Gold’ to the UK market. This provides a second chance for anyone who missed out on purchasing the bestseller.

Euro Truck Gold’s predecessor already proved that this PC simulator is enjoyed by lorry enthusiasts as well as anyone who loves driving and the challenge of building up their own business. With no less than 8 busy Facebook groups and a number of dedicated forums, Euro Truck Simulator has proved to be a great success.

The publishers and developers have been busy listening to suggestions by devoted gamers and have made some wide-ranging improvements to the original. Excalibur Publishing Ltd in co-operation with SCS Software, the leading developers responsible for Euro Truck Simulator, have added a whole host of exciting and new enhanced features. You can now drive in London, Manchester and Newcastle, three of the UK’s largest and busiest cities also allowing you to access parts of the M25, the M6 and the M1. Players will also face using ferries to get to other countries and will find new smaller more challenging roads throughout Central Europe. All gamers will notice improved performance as a result of increased DirectX compatibility whilst the real enthusiast will be delighted to find that they can listen to their favourite OGG-format music files whilst out on the open road.

Robert Stallibrass of Excalibur Publishing says:“Of course we were delighted with the success of the original but I’m even happier that we can give fans the experience they have asked for and deserve. We were inundated with requests for an exciting UK truck experience and that is what we have delivered while keeping intact all the features that made the original such a hit.”

The product will retail at£19.99, with further information available at www.excalibur-publishing.com. Euro Truck Gold will officially hit the shelves of all major game retailers on 21st August 2009.
