The world of simulators is little known and I will therefore make a brief reminder Euro Truck Simulator 2 – Vive la France! was released in late 2012 on PC. We play a (or a) truck driver loaded, as in real life, to transport different goods between several cities in Europe taking care to respect the rules of the road, the hours of sleep etc. Even if the distances are not to scale (still happy) the journeys can be long but are also opportunities to see the landscape of our continent scroll. Added to this is the creation and management of a company with purchases of garages, trucks, hiring drivers and all that goes with it. The game has several licenses to find the most famous brands (Renault Trucks, Scania, Daf, Mercedes etc.) and their trucks faithfully modeled. The goods have diversified over the updated and, if we count, Vive France is the third DLC after a small extension to the east (Going East) and a larger north (Scandinavia). Not to mention the American adventure of American Truck Simulator.
But since we must come to the point: What is this DLC worth? First, the basic French map provided with the game (Paris, Reims, Lyon, Lille etc.) has also undergone a redesign that does not require the purchase of Vive la France. Paris for example is no longer this pre-fabricated industrial zone in which we can see in the distance a vague Eiffel Tower. Place, as I had explained, the motorway network and even a small piece of periphery. The opportunity to see part of the capital under a less fantasized eye. Usually only American cities are entitled to this treatment, let’s take advantage of it. Paris is a small exception because the other existing cities have not necessarily been entitled to the same honors. Still, the motorway interchanges have been modified and the rest areas named what is already not bad.
Basically the map was already satisfactory and we could observe from time to time small and nice elements, real, on the side of the road. Long live France is a perfect continuity in better. On the program: highways (too many?) That will have very few surprises, cities mostly in the form of industrial zones but with many more surprises, and small departmental and national roads wedged between the two, where We can cross many small villages and admire our bridges and national monuments classified World Heritage.
In addition to the expansion of the playground we note the arrival of new goods in addition to all that already added. But it will unfortunately be the only novelty of gameplay and Vive la France will not avoid the game to stay in the same way. Indeed, nothing outside of curiosity, and career progression will come to stem repetitiveness and lassitude. The most motivated will long continue their activity of road, but the others risk of stopping after 10 hours of play (or less).
As a bonus we will feel, if we are sensitive, a different atmosphere depending on the region we visit (Hauts de France, Provence, Atlantic coast). But overall we can say that on this (essential) point the result could have been better overall. Even if the landscapes are rather different, the cities still lack identity. Scandinavia was better stocked in this area.
The street system of Euro Truck Simulator 2 – Vive la France is to a great degree practical and shifted. The lovely designs of the environment and historic points truly influence you to need to investigate this assorted nation from the solace of your truck’s taxi. Driving down the wide French lanes toward the evening daylight is a genuine joy, and something that proprietors of the base diversion will truly need to understanding.
