The mode that American Truck Simulator players were able to test a few days ago has finally arrived in Euro Truck Simulator 2. We're talking about the Convoy multiplayer mode. All interested game owners can now try out the new mode in the open beta, which is part of 1.41 update.
Convoy will allow up to eight players to play simultaneously. They will be able to complete orders together within a fully synchronized world. All members of the group will experience the same weather, traffic and random events. Communication will be facilitated by voice chat (stylized as CB radio) and text chat, as well as a quick replies panel.
The developers warn, however, that playing in Convoy mode may still be associated with some problems. The new gameplay variant is not yet complete, so players must be prepared for inconveniences such as non-functioning lift bridges and AI errors. The developers also advise against using mods that can break the gameplay.
It was not revealed how long the beta of Convoy mode will last. However, the developers asked the players for support in the form of reporting any bugs, which will enable them to polish the game faster.
