About ‘Hidden Places & Damage System’ DLC

Get ready to hit the road and discover hidden places and new vehicles. Drive safe, though, since a new damage system shows visual damage on your truck and other vehicles at the point of impact. With three hidden places, you can search for unknown roads that are not shown on the map. You can also spot five brand-new vehicles in traffic, including a tow truck and minibus. So drive responsibly and go exploring!
