"Breaker one niner, are there any smokies with ears on?" you ask. No reply. You try again, but still nothing. No Snowman. No Frog. No Bandit. Just you, playing Euro Truck Simulator 2. But wait! Horns blast from over the horizon. The roar of engines behind you. You guys, multiplayer is coming, thanks to some industrious modders.
A new trailer shows off the multiplayer mod's pre-alpha progress, which is a bit wonky but it's still early days, and the sight of a convoy trucks rolling down the autobahn is certainly something.
"Trucking could never be more real with the use of a CB Radio to communicate with the others around you, however don't forget mistakes can cost you!" explains ETS2MP's Mod DB page (via PC Gamer). "Also within ETS2MP's global servers there will be extra custom maps available for you to drive too such as the 'Meeting Point' created especially for special events. You can either power around Europe on your own or you can join one of many Virtual Trucking Companies created for the ETS2 community, with the CEO able to buy and sell trucks, hire and fire drivers you need to keep up the good work or face the sack! Will you cope?"
