We're happy to announce that after spending some time in internal testing, Experimental Beta and Public Beta, the Euro Truck Simulator 2 Update 1.35 is now ready for all trucking enthusiasts!
As we have said before, this update is really huge so we'd like to thank all those who helped us in testing it. Due to its size, we won't describe all the details here again (read the Public Beta article please).
Instead, we'd like to address some questions regarding a new feature that was added only a few days ago; GPS voice navigation. As with many other features, please do consider this to be the initial phase. For now, you can choose from 9 different language options (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Polish, Turkish and Mandarin Chinese), but we do plan to add more in the future, in addition to other improvements. The beta feedback we've received so far has been really positive, but don't be shy about adding your own on our forum. Your opinion is important to us!
And for those who like short recap videos, here's ours for this content-packed update!
To enjoy the 1.35 update, make sure to OPT OUT of beta branches and your game will be automatically updated on Steam.
For the legacy non-Steam edition of ETS2, the update should be ready in a few days.
Some mods, however, may have not caught up yet - this update may effectively break them. So remember that you can always stay on 1.34 or an even older branch. The way to access and select them is: Steam client → LIBRARY → right click on Euro Truck Simulator 2 → Properties → Betas tab → select the version you want.
