Euro Truck Simulator 2 Update 1.36
Road to the Black Sea is approaching fast so it's time to close the Beta and move on to the next best thing! Euro Truck Simulator 2 Update 1.36 is out now!
As always, we'd like to thank every single one of you for all your help with your bug reports, opinions and general feedback during the Public Beta. This time, the update brings probably the biggest system change we have ever implemented, together with some nice features.
The main feature is the upgrade to DirectX 11, which allowed the complete removal of support for DirectX 9 and all its limitations. While it may need a little tweak here and there, general feedback is very positive (FPS increase, smoother gameplay, better long-range LOD behaviours) as we hoped, since listed minimum requirements for Windows already support DX11.
And to spice things up a bit (as "invisible" changes aren't as appreciated as they should be), there are two bigger features and a number of smaller ones.
Corsica, a beautiful island in the Mediterranean is now available to all existing and future owners of the Vive la France ! map expansion as a free addition.
Detours are also coming to Euro Truck Simulator 2 after a long testing period in its American twin. Do tell us if it's ok as it is, or what adjustments you'd like us to make still.
Besides that, you'll get a number of other nice features - such as a long-requested feature for drivers, trucks and trailers to be visible on the manager map, avoidance pins for your GPS and more.
