Greetings!

It’s approaching that special time of the year when we yet again celebrate our anniversary. This year TruckersMP is turning 8!

On the 1st of May 2014, TruckersMP (formerly known as ETS2MP) opened its doors to the public for the first time.

Fast-forward to today; with over 4.5 million players as well as over £50,000 raised for charities at events in the community over the past 8 years which is a massive achievement, and millions of hours combined playtime, the success speaks for itself!

For TruckersMP, our anniversary is always a special time of the year! It reminds us of how awesome our community is and what we have accomplished together. For that reason, it is important to come together and celebrate the success of TruckersMP.

Show your support by wearing #TMP8 in your player tag!

As you may know, we always love to hold a massive anniversary party and with that said, we are very excited to announce our celebration plans coming in just a few days!

Queue the intense and dramatic music…

Friday 29 April 2022 FESTIVAL

It’s back again for another year and we’re going to kick off the celebrations with an absolute bang!

We recommend bringing your best pair of dancing shoes, along with lots of food and drinks! ;)

Okay, let’s get to the point. Like last year, we are partnering again with TruckersFM to bring you a one of a kind 5-hour Festival!

Located at Haulie Island just north of Amsterdam, we are opening up our festival on a huge site next to the race track where our Tournament was located last month. This will include a spectacular custom stage, lots of party decorations, a custom dragstrip, race track and most importantly - great music broadcasted to you LIVE from the Truckers.FM studio.

So please join us at the festival, enjoy the music, and party with our staff and the community!

To get to the Island you will need to catch the ferry connections from Europort or Hull.

The festival will be open on Friday 29th April between the hours of 17:00 - 22:00 UTC.

TMP8 Freeroam FREEROAM-POSTER

But wait, there’s one more thing!

In addition to our three action-packed days of celebrations, we are excited to announce that our exclusive 'Freeroam' server will be returning!

If you celebrated with us last year, you may remember we released a unique server in which the community could play online in a 'sandbox' environment. It was a massive success, and once again as a thank you to the community, we will be reopening it again exclusively for our TMP8 celebrations.

So what's so special about this server? On our TMP8 Freeroam [No Road Rules] server, players will be granted access to our staff-exclusive Police car!

And, to ensure you can enjoy the experience with reduced restrictions, the server will have no road rules enforced, but with the player collisions ON.

As well as all of this our very own Haulie Island will be available on the server to race your friends or even go head to head on the dragstrip, or if you are not into all of that you could just chill and take in the beach views that the Island has to offer.

The server will be available on Euro Truck Simulator 2, exclusively between Monday 2nd May - Sunday 15th May.

Thank you for playing! <3
