Server Meltdown Imminent

Going East! official launch is coming in a few hours, but we already see that our serves are not going to keep up. After releasing the 1.5.2 update already in the morning, the traffic is so high that download times can be frustrating. We hope the more mirror options will come online, but this will take time.

There is a way to make life less frustrating for technically advanced players who are ready to pre-cache the game even now, ahead of the release. Of course if you want to actually get the DLC ;-)

The workaround solution proposed is: official torrent links.

Please note that the links below are not intended for you if you are playing the game on Steam; Steam store should also launch the DLC early on September 20th.

First of all, the updates if you feel you need to patch the game Right Now...

Cumulative patch, will work on any previous retail or digital release:
EuroTruckSimulator2_1_5_2_patch.exe.torrent

Patch from the previous 1.4.x version:
EuroTruckSimulator2_1_4_1_to_1_5_2_patch.exe.torrent


And here is the interesting stuff. Please note that you should NOT download and install it unless you intend to purchase Going East! There is no demo mode for the DLC content.

New "Gold" edition of the game, which contains both base game and the DLC:
EuroTruckSimulator2_1_5_2_setup_gold.exe.torrent

Standalone "Going East!" DLC including cumulative patch:
EuroTruckSimulator2_1_5_2_dlc_east_setup_with_patch.exe.torrent

Standalone "Going East"! DLC to use if you already have the game patched to 1.5.2:
EuroTruckSimulator2_1_5_2_dlc_east_setup.exe.torrent

The benefit for you? If you get the game files ahead of release, you can play it a few seconds after finally obtaining the Product Key. The benefit for us? Servers do not get red hot the minute we push the launch button. ;-)

Thank you and have fun!

    1. September 20th is the official release date, both for digital and retail edition. All our distribution partners were striving for a simultaneous release, but we cannot guarantee availability in any particular store really.

  10. Sorry, I'm not so sure with this update.

  12. Please fix the steering sensitivity and change it to the previous condition !!! The truck cannot be stabilized when using with mouse... I am about to delete and setup the older version of game only because of this sensitivity... After the 1.3.1 version all the patches has a worse vehicle control but this time 1.5.2 has the worst!!! Even with a minimal touch the truck is starting to go sideways of the road !!! I have bought this game three times and supporting you but PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE STEERING SENSITIVITY OR PHYSICS OF TRUCK ANYMORE..YOU ARE MAKING IT WORSE AND WORSE

    1. There is no change in truck control itself. Only sliders in option have different range than before. If you just install the patch and do not move sliders, it will behave same as before.

      Only other change is non-linearity fix for mouse steering input. If you are using mouse for steering set non-linearity slider somewhere to the center and it should be OK.

  13. Will we be able to link the retail website to steam like we did with the game? I'm planning on buying but I still don't know on which.

  14. I like the game a lot, so i have some sugestions to help improve more the game. It would be nice new drivers (The proportion of the drivers is 2 for garage, total) and increase the difficulty of parking, maybe different spots, Ex: In some construction road, not only city to city delivery, and the garages look dead, not a single truck inside, it would be nice when the driver of your company rest in the city you have a garage the truck it would appear inside. I'm playing more than 120 hours without using any mods and i still have tons of fun. Good job

  15. Really cool of you guys to give out torrent links for the DLC. I like your idea very much, and this is the first time I have seen a game company do this because of the anticipated server meltdown! Definately a star in my book. I will get the DLC on Steam the minute it is ready though... I was wondering something unrelated though.

    How is it going with the licence for Mercedes? The new trucks look absolutely awesome and I think it would be such a nice addition to ETS2..

    1. This was announced here on the blog: NO DEMO of DLC.
      So do not install if you haven't bought it yet, so no old keys or whatever; just buy the game (retail box or digital) and give in the code you're getting from buying the DLC.
