It’s taken a couple of weeks to catch up with American Truck Simulator, but SCS Software and truck fans can celebrate with Euro Truck Simulator 2 update 1.37 released now.
As with ATS, the 1.37 update brings the FMOD sound engine to the game, along with opening windows for your truck. And the ability to walk around your vehicle on foot in the service and vehicle browser to make the most of your customisation.
And also matching the U.S haulage options are the addition of food tank trailers.
So what’s uniquely European, with Euro Truck Simulator Update 1.37 released? Well, four French cities have received an overhaul, with Metz, Reims, Strasbourg and Dijon all having reworked roads and surroundings to make them more up to date.
And to celebrate the fact that Euro Truck Simulator 2 (and American Truck Simulator) support the ASUS Auro range of RGB hardware, there’s a special ASUS ROG paint scheme available for the Mercedes-Benz New Actros via the ETS2 Steam Workshop page.
