At last, we are happy to announce that we are ready to start public beta test of update 1.14 for Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Please use our forum to give us feedback and comments. Although we have tested the update vigorously over several internal builds in the past weeks, practice shows that during an open beta period usually even more problems are discovered and fixed. We strive to make the game updates as polished as possible. Thanks for your support and help!

Totally enjoying the new traffic updates and realistic turning of the AI. Great update so far. Also the elimination of the speed limiter is awesome!
