    Game mechanics are based on the highly successful model from Euro Truck Simulator 2 and have been expanded with new features, creating the most captivating game experience from SCS Software.

    One of the listed locations is my home town. I wonder how they will represent it. Hopefully they will do more than a few building (ETS2) as it is a large place with many landmarks.

    I'm curious to see how well this game runs in VR. If its anywhere near ETS2, then it's going to be amazing.

    When I posted the giveaway it was listed as having support but now it is gone. I'm hopeful it will be implemented in the future.

    One of the devs said on the steam forums a few days ago that ATS would be supported just like ETS2 is. And it will likely be available within a few days after the launch :)

    I played the hell out of ETS2. I got my hands on a G27 wheel a couple years ago and will be getting it out for ATS as well.

    The g27 is an amazing wheel, it's such a shame they discontinued it. The new wheels are far worse :(

    The wheel itself is fantastic but the problem is in it's drivers. While the g27 had tons of options the drivers for the newer wheels only let you change the degrees of rotation. Some people have said that not being able to fine tune the force feedback is a huge turnoff and really makes games like ets and assetto corsa feel dull. Hopefully logitech will do something but at this point nobody knows.

    Wow. Yeah that's definitely a step in the wrong direction.

    I have to get it! Playing Euro Truck Simulator was a blast but being from the USA it was a bit weird to play.
