The “highly anticipated” title, Euro Truck Simulator 2 is due for release tomorrow: October 26th, 2012. As part of a partnership with SCS — “leading experts in the trucking simulation genre” who “have developed such hit titles” of the likes of UK Truck Simulator, Euro Truck Simulator, and SCANIA Truck Driving Simulator — Excalibur Publishing will be publishing the title.
For those excited about Euro Truck Simulator 2, the title boasts a detailed map of Europe that “has taken years to create”. The title also includes business management, and better graphics than before.
Set to launch tomorrow, the title retails with a recommended retail price of £24.99.
Platinum Game’s upcoming multiplayer, third-person brawler title, Anarchy Reigns, is finally getting released in the west. Players can finally expect the title to launch in the second week of January, on their respective region’s usual day of the week.
Announced last year, Anarchy Reigns was eventually released earlier this year during the Summer in Japan, and was intended to launch in the west shortly after. Unfortunately, even though the game’s localisation was finished and ready to ship, the title’s publisher, SEGA, decided to delay it instead. Presumably, SEGA wanted to launch Anarchy Reigns during a better period.
“SEGA are hugely proud of the work Platinum Games has put in to creating a video game with such a unique and engaging vision”, said Chief Operations Officer for SEGA Europe, Jurgen Post. “Gamers will soon be able to experience the full adrenaline rush that comes from competing in the explosive multiplayer matches of Anarchy Reigns.”
Announced on Friday was the brand new release date for the game. North American players can expect to be able to pick it up on January 8th, 2013 — for as low as $29.99. Europeans can expect the game come January 11th, 2013. Similarly, they can expect to pay the low cost of £19.99/€29.99.
“Focusing on online play with Anarchy Reigns presented a new challenge for us here at PlatinumGames,” said Atsushi Inaba, Executive Director and Producer at Platinum Games. “Very few games fall under its genre of a melee-based online multiplayer brawler, so I think we’ve been able to supply a new kind of excitement that you can’t find anywhere else. While some time has passed since its Japan release, I look forward to having gamers in North American and Europe enjoy the Anarchy!”
