Across most of Europe, you will find that a majority of countries share open inter-state borders as part of the Schengen Agreement. This allows for a free flow of people and an easier flow of goods between nations, which makes those long-haul journeys a little bit easier; however entry for the Balkans region from Hungary into Romania is much stricter.
After our first iteration of border crossings outside of the EU's Schengen area in Beyond the Baltic Sea, our teams have made improvements to create a more functioning border for our players to experience.
In our upcoming map expansion, you will find two border crossings between Hungary & Romania, three between Romania & Bulgaria and two of the largest and most complicated crossings between Bulgaria & Turkey.
These borders represent our first implementation of creating a more realistic border experience, which has been created using unique assets, and with new procedures in place; with plans to improve them further with future development and expansions.
We look forward to sharing more information about this upcoming map expansion, just remember to have your truck in order before crossing the border... Papers Please!
