After the last blog post about the upcoming phase of Germany Rework, we’ve seen many questions about whether the popular city of Hamburg will be included in this phase as well. Well, wonder no more as we can officially confirm that Hamburg will receive a completely new look in the 1.48 update for Euro Truck Simulator 2!
Founded in the 9th century, Hamburg quickly became a prominent trading hub due to its advantageous position along the Elbe River and its access to the North Sea. Throughout the centuries, Hamburg flourished as a key member of the Hanseatic League, an influential medieval trading alliance. Its success as a trading center led to economic prosperity and cultural development, attracting merchants and artists from around the world. Today, Hamburg remains a vital economic powerhouse, boasting one of Europe’s busiest ports and a thriving maritime industry.
Having paid extra detail to the local port, after rebuilding Hamburg from the ground up, this bustling port city will captivate with its grandeur and magnificence, offering not only an expanded size with an addition of Maschener Kreuz but also a delightful passage over the Köhlbrand Bridge. While our focus primarily lay in embracing the city’s essence, the city has unveiled many new surprises when it comes to landmarks, such as the presence of towers near gas stations, where our dedicated team made pit stops during our small research expedition.
Hamburg concludes the list of German cities that will receive a new look in the upcoming 1.48 update. We are however excited for what the future might bring so remember to keep your eyes on the blog in the future or follow us on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok) to stay in touch with any latest announcements.
