How to play Euro Truck Simulator 2 on Mobile
Anyway, but you don't want to know about any similar game, and you want to play Euro Truck Simulator 2, the game released only for pc directly on your mobile? There is a way, which until recently needed a whole “rascal way”, but nowadays it is possible to do it without many difficulties.
Playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 on mobile is now possible thanks to game streaming services. Which are nothing more than a service that allows you to play in the cloud. One of the most famous and recent ones to come out for literally all platforms (Android, iOS, Chrome OS, Windows, Mac…) is Geforce Now.
O GeForce Now, Nvidia's new cloud gaming service, allows the user to enjoy various games that would normally require storage space, and powerful hardware to play, being a gamer on "simple" smartphones, modest computers, and even on Smart TV's.
The service had already been launched in several parts of the world, but has recently officially arrived in Brazil. But how does it work? Simple, when creating an account, you can choose different subscription plans, with a free option but with limitations. Once an account is created, you can link your Steam account, and play all the games you have on your account, as long as they are compatible. This includes playing exclusive computer games, such as Euro Truck Simulator 2, right on your smartphone.
There are 3 plans, with different advantages, and of course different prices to subscribe to GeForce Now, they are:
- Free (1 month): Free plan, which gives standard access to the service, with sessions lasting 30 minutes. No priority in queues
- Priority (1 month): With a value of R$ 44.99 each month, which gives priority access to the service, that is, priority in the queues, with longer sessions, and with RTX On (DLSS and Ray Tracing).
- Priority (6 months): The same benefits as the 1-month plan, but valid for 6 months with a discount on the value, starting at R$ 243 (the month costs R$40.50).
Comments: the platform has a session system, which does not overload the servers. That doesn't mean you can only play for example 30 minutes a day. But yes, when that time is up, you will need to log in again to the system.
Tip: a golden tip! If you think 30 minutes is too little, there is the option of using a VPN app and using the American plan, where you can play on the free plan for 1 hour! This time was reduced with the arrival of the service here in Brazil, but abroad it is 1 hour free.
Playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 on Smartphone
1. Access the website of ABYA, who is distributing the service here in Brazil. Scroll down and select the plan you want and create your account. The account can also be created using Facebook, Google and/or Discord, which makes it very easy, being able to create the account with a few clicks.
2. Once the account is created, download the GeForce Now app if your smartphone is Android. The download can be done through the official website, or through the Play Store, I will leave the link below. If you want to play on iOS, there is still no app, but that doesn't mean you can't play, after all, you can play through the safari browser!
3. Once you log into GeForce Now, search for “Euro Truck Simulator 2”. Select the game, and you will be asked to link your Steam account. Follow the step by step indicated on the screen, but if you need help, comment below and I'll be clearing all your doubts.
4. With the account linked, search the game again in the search box, and select it. If you have the game, you will play it in full, but if you don't have it in your account, you don't need to buy it.
