Does Eurotruck Simulator 2 Gold need online activation?

By StopBoris posted 24th Dec 2013

I know it comes with a Steam key, but I prefer not to use Steam. Often other DRM means an offline serial key check, which is fine for me. But Ive read on other sites that the DLC (which is uncluded here) needs to be verified online. Is that the case here?

ETS 2 Gold comes with 2 serial keys that can be OPTIONALLY activated on Steam. In case you want to play it Steam-less, GamersGate also provides a single installer for both the base game and the Going East! expansion. On first launch, you will be prompted to insert both serial keys, with the option to postpone the activation of the expansion. I just verified this myself with my GamersGate copy of ETS 2 Gold.

As a sidenote, I can see that this installer gives you version 1.5.2, but you can easily download the latest patch from developers site:

Thanks. Sorry if I seem fussy about this, but does the game need to connect to a server to verify the serial keys, or is it completely offline?

It does connect to a server to verify the keys. You need to be online.
