While waiting patiently for the next big hit, there are those moments when you think: Maybe try another game in the meantime? Luckily, the download platforms make it quite easy for you: there are regularly countless offers here.
As always, the weekend is no exception. We have looked for you what is reduced in sunny temperatures. But if you are longing for free games, then you will get all the information here:
Free on Steam, Epic & Co.:
There are 6 games for free this weekend
Highlight of the weekend: Euro & American Truck Simulator
Still undefeated after 9 years – Euro Truck Simulator 2
Genre: Simulation | Developer: SCS Software | Release: 19.10.2012 | Preis: 5 dollars (Steam, reduced by 75 percent)
Euro Truck Simulator 2 is almost 10 years old, but SCS Software’s work is still considered a flagship product in the simulation genre. No wonder, because Truck Simulator now offers an incredible amount of content. Even in the basic version without the paid map extensions, you can spend countless hours building your own trucking company. After all, such a journey from the deepest south of Europe to the far north with tons of cargo in your luggage can take some time.
On the other hand, if you prefer to drive trucks in America, you can live it out in American Truck Simulator. It comes from the same developer, offers roughly the same strengths and weaknesses and also a lot of scope. So if you feel like getting upset about American road traffic, then Truck Simulator offers an exciting niche there – and for some time also like Euro Truck Simulator 2 a multiplayer mode.
By the way: In the podcast, Michael talks to Florian and Géraldine about the complex genre of simulations – and of course Euro Truck Simulator 2 plays a role in this.
