1.14 UPDATE NEWS AND ACROSS THE DESERT IN ATS GAME

Euro Truck Simulator 2 team is working hard on finalizing of ETS2 1.14 Update. Stabilization of this large update had been our focus for several weeks already.

We are committed to bringing you significant improvements every couple of months. That’s why we prefer to call new game version releases “updates” rather than “patches.” For every update...
