Hey Truckers!

We have recently received reports that some websites are claiming to be offering a pre-release beta version of American Truck Simulator for download.

While our upcoming title is currently in testing and polishing phases, please note that we will not be offering a beta or demo version to the public before the day of release.

Any websites that provide links or other options to download the game before the official release are attempting to distribute and install viruses or other malware on your machines. We strongly recommend against downloading any game installers from other sources than links listed on our website, our trusted hosting partners, or directly from Steam.

Be safe out there, and as always keep an eye on our blog for news and announcements regarding our new projects as well as updates for our already released games.

To be expected with any big title really. I never trusted any beta release unless it was announced by the company itself.

I'd hope that nobody's tried that - it's almost guaranteed to be fake so probably a better idea not to try it
It is guaranteed fake ;) But honestly, noone should ever download stuff of off random websites, especially for unreleased games/movies :p
