Euro Truck Simulator 2: Going East! is a map expansion DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2. It is the first map of DLC involving map expansions. It was released on September 19, 2013 on Steam and September 20, 2013 as a physical copy. It costs $9.99, £7,99, €9,99.


As the first map expansion of DLC involved, Going East centers on Eastern Europe, which includes the rest of Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, initially introduced in the official release of the base game of Euro Truck Simulator 2. The DLC also included the addition of Hungary which the initial release originally rendered the northern part of the country until update 1.19, covering its entirety including two more cities.

Originally a so-called "Eastern European Expansion", the name of the DLC wasn't official announced until August 1, 2013, making it the first map expansion that did not have an official name after its announcement. Expanding across the eastern part of the North European Plain in northern Poland (part of the larger and vast European Plain) to the westernmost parts of the Carpathian Mountains in Slovakia and the Great Hungarian Plain, the Going East DLC includes a variety of geography features across the region, which also includes challenging but also scenic roads across the mountainous areas and the vast densely forested regions. Major cities such as Warszawa, Kraków, Gdańsk, Lublin, Ostrava, Košice, and Budapest are also included in the DLC.

Although the quality of the DLC does meet SCS Software's current mapping standards (comparing to the latest DLCs including Iberia and West Balkans), and the fact that the DLC has received significant attention from players after Germany was reworked, the DLC has yet to receive a rework in the future.

Going East! add-on expands the original Euro Truck Simulator 2 map with new destinations for cargo delivery across Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary.
