Latest Euro Truck Simulator 2 update ver. 1.15 dubbed "Holiday Update" brought numerous fixes and improvements to the core part of our title, but it also contained a number of improvements for existing DLCs in order to keep their content compatible with new features and code base of the game. Maintaining everything up to date is one of the behind the scenes tasks that our team is undertaking to ensure that ETS2 performs just as you expect it!

At this moment, the retail version of 1.15 Holiday Update is available as well.



This update not only brings updates and fixes for the existing content, but time we included new content: Road Roller for the High Power Cargo Pack DLC as a "thank-you" to our loyal fans who support continued development of ETS2 by purchasing extra DLC packages. We believe there's always more room for boosting value of our paid and free content, including exclusive Raven Pack DLC.



Raven Pack DLC is a special reward for participating and completing objectives in the SCS Polar Express - our special holiday event. We are extremely thrilled at the user turnout we have seen so far: over ten thousand World of Truck users have already received a free key for the Raven Pack DLC! (To put this number into perspective: total distance driven helping Santa is over 50 trips to the Moon and back!)

This is an update with a few things we didn't get right on Friday, nothing big.

Changes:
  • Raven Truck Design paint job fixes
  • Updated localization for the High Power Cargo Pack DLC
Have fun delivering Xmas Gifts! ːsquirtyayː

Don't let the reindeers and sleigh fool you: Santa is essentially a glorified trucker. As such, it makes sense that virtual truckers get in on his action. A new Christmassy update has landed for Euro Truck Simulator 2, and with it, a new challenge for would-be gift deliverers.

Top of the billing is the Christmas event. Truckists can now accept a cargo of "Christmas Gifts" to be ferried around the game's truncated Europe. If a player can, over the course of the event, deliver gifts across the distance from SCS's office to the North Pole, they'll be rewarded with a unique paint skin.

Also with the update: new fixes and features, including showroom improvements, driving tweaks and, most importantly of all, new sounds for Scania 6 cylinder engines. Game changer. You can see the full patch notes here.

Update aside, I'm writing this more to remind people that Euro Truck Simulator 2 exists and is still surprisingly brilliant. In a year of comedy simulators, it's nice to remember that serious sims can still be a lot of fun.

Outside of Europe, SCS are making progress with the upcoming American Truck Simulator. You can see some of the latest screenshots over at the ETS2 Steam page.

ANNOUNCING HOLIDAY SPECIAL EVENT: SCS POLAR EXPRESS

We've just received a cryptic letter with some very disturbing news: Santa Claus might not be able to deliver all gifts in time on his own! We were told that Father Christmas is looking for logistic professionals who want to help out with Santa's substantial delivery backlog.

Here's more details for elves truckers who want to help out to make sure that all gifts are delivered in time: The task at hand is delivering a unique kind of cargo over the distance equal to that of SCS Software office and the North Pole. Note that this distance can be covered across multiple deliveries. Progress of the deliveries can be tracked from your World of Trucks profile.





You may ask - where do these cool truck & trailer combos come from? The Christmas Gifts trailers have just appeared today in the game for all players after 1.15 update, so anyone can deliver them. As for the truck paintjobs, they are a part of Christmas Paintjobs DLC. Thousands of people have received this DLC from us for free during a recent World of Trucks campaign. It is available for purchase on Steam now.

Santa always makes sure that everyone gets the gifts they deserve, and indeed, there is something special waiting for everyone who contributes his or her due to the effort to transport all the gift packages in our Polar Express 2014 Event. Succeed and you will be rewarded with a special Raven Truck Design DLC. This original tuning set cannot be purchased, the only way to obtain is to earn a Steam key for it during this limited-time event.

With public beta test in full swing, the release of Euro Truck Simulator 2 ver. 1.15 "Holiday Update" is getting really close. But we have heard your voices that American Truck Simulator is getting very little attention on the blog lately, indeed our recent posts were heavily concentrated on ETS2 content.

So we have at least a few screenshots for you today, taken from the latest build of American Truck Simulator. There might not be much news to share right now, the design team is hard at work on the map and the vehicles, while we are still striving to obtain the truck licenses that we need. Rest assured that everyone on our ATS team is working hard to bring the American highways and more to your computers as soon as possible.













Alternate title for this announcement was The American Truck Crew.

For a majority of our players, it is of course wiser to stick with the official builds of the game that are properly tested before the release. But if you want to take a sneak peek at what's coming and help us in testing the update before release, your help is appreciated.
In order to access beta, navigate to your Library and right click on the Euro Truck Simulator 2 then select Properties from the menu. When the Properties window opens, select the "BETAS" tab and from the drop down menu select "public_beta". After the Properties window is closed, Steam will automatically start downloading the latest version of the update.
