A new gameplay system is introduced in Euro Truck Simulator 2.
At first, the player is required to create a profile and choose a city as their "headquarters". At first, the player does not have enough money to own a truck, therefore they have to complete quick jobs to save up enough money or enough skill to be able to take out a sufficiently sized loan.
As the player finishes jobs, the player's profile skill level also increases. When this happens, the player may invest a skill point to one of the six skills available, allowing them to haul more valuable freight, and for longer distances.
Countries and Cities Edit
