France (French: France) is a country in Western Europe featured in Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Summary

The country is bordered by Belgium to the north, Luxembourg and Germany to the northeast, Switzerland to the east, Italy to the southeast and Spain to the south. In real-life, it also shares borders with the microstates Andorra and Monaco. Although the whole of France appears on the map, only the eastern part is featured in the initial Euro Truck Simulator 2. France was expanded with 23 new cities in the Vive la France! DLC, released on 5 December 2016, fills up most of the country.

The base game part of France was reworked in the update 1.26.

With its area of 547,030 square km, France has 1,027,183 km of serviceable roadway. France is also a very popular tourist destination: people come to visit famous vineyards, ski resorts and of course Paris, one of the world's most beautiful and romantic cities.

Toll System

While France is just like most other countries in Euro Truck Simulator, the sequel game – Euro Truck Simulator 2 – introduces toll booths on French Autoroutes, which are common in real-life France. The reason for extensive road-tolling in France is that the French government conceded the exploitation of most of the motorways to private companies, which in turn charges users to maintain the networks.

Cities

8 French cities are featured in Euro Truck Simulator 2 base game, while the Vive la France! DLC brings back Bordeaux from ETS 1 along with 22 others (14 cities in the initial release, 6 cities in Corse were added in the update 1.36 and 2 cities (including Bayonne and Lacq) were added in the update 1.40) and 5 towns representing nuclear power plants. In total, 31 French cities and 5 nuclear plant zones are featured in ETS 2, making the country with the second-highest number of accessible in-game cities behind Spain.

  • Highways: 90 km/h for trucks, 130 km/h for cars (reduced to 110 km/h in case of rain, 50 km/h if visibility is inferior to 50m).
  • Minor roads: 90 km/h for vehicles under 3,5 tons, 80 km/h for trucks. 70 km/h is enforced on narrow stretches and near junctions.
  • Cities and Towns: 50 km/h for all traffic. Small towns are often 30 km/h.
