The fans are waiting eagerly for the game and we want to offer them the best possible package. I am convinced that we will accomplish this goal with Construction Simulator 2."
Gary Bell, Group Chief Executive at Bell Equipment: "Bell Equipment is an ADT specialist in the construction, earthmoving and mining markets worldwide because of our ongoing product innovation and ability to offer the widest range of lowest cost per tonne ADTs, with payloads ranging from 18,000 kg to 55,000 kg. The opportunity to provide our brand new B45E for the gamer community as part of the Construction Simulator 2 fleet arose from a previous contact we had with weltenbauer. and it quickly became clear for us, that we would love to support this second edition of the famous mobile app with our product. I wish all players the same satisfaction, as our customers experience when driving the Bell E-Series ADTs in real life."
