We have just released a new patch for the game, updating it to version 1.3. While version 1.2 was a sizable content update with new destinations and roads in the UK, version 1.3 is only a bug fix maintenance release. We hope to be able to provide another region as a content update for Euro Truck Sim in forthcoming patch later this year.

Big Rig Europe - USA Release
We are happy to announced that the game is going to make it onto the store shelves in North America! We have licensed the game to Meridian 4; the game is currently being prepared for retail launch as well as for appearance in additional digital distribution channels.
Due to specifics of the US market, the title of the game had to be altered. Look for the game under the name Big Rig Europe. European customers should not be confused - this is not a new or different game than what you have already beein playing for a while.

High quality game manuals are available
Euro Truck Simulator game manuals with high quality pictures are available for download. The owners of the multi-language online edition should especially appreciate this, as we had to decrease the size of the downloadable version by reducing the quality of pictures of the included PDF manuals.

SCS Software announce their latest project - Euro Truck Simulator - a brand-new trucking game set in Europe. From the creative team behind 18 Wheels of Steel series of sims, Euro Truck Simulator is sure to be a big hit with fans of trucking across the European territory.
In addition, SCS Software would like to announce the launch of the Euro Truck Simulator website, located at http://www.eurotrucksimulator.com - your number one source for information, screenshots, and much more. The site will be kept up to date with more news as the game develops, so we hope fans will visit often to get the latest scoop!
Euro Truck Simulator is a truck simulation game set in continental Europe. The player can drive across a realistic depiction of Europe, visiting its beautiful cities, picking up a variety of cargos, and delivering them on time!
The road network in Euro Truck Simulator is based on genuine European roads, and cities in the game bring the essence of their real-world counterparts to the game.
As the game is set in Europe, European truck-designs feature exclusively - all trucks use highly realistic, meticulously detailed models based on real trucks. The truck interiors of Euro Truck Simulator are as equally impressive as the exteriors. With actual working instruments such as flashing indicators, temperature and low fuel warning lights, wipers, and naturally - a full set of gauges including speedometer - all built into the interior 3D model, Euro Truck Simulator offers a truly immersive simulation environment. The player can pan around the cabin, just as if they were actually sitting at the wheel.
