Euro Truck Simulator 2 now available as a beta on Mac



We are happy to announce that Euro Truck Simulator 2 is finally about to appear officially on Apple Mac OS X platform. But we are starting carefully - with a beta.

Please bear in mind that the current Mac build is still considered a beta and may contain bugs or other issues. If you already own the game license on Steam, and at the same time happen to be a Mac user bold enough to try a beta, we would be very happy to hear back from you on your experience with this testing release. But keep your patience in check if you consider buying the game just based on the existence of a beta - things happen, and we don't want to disappoint you guys if the beta process takes longer than we now hope.

The MacOS version of the game is not "just a port" - it is intended to be a first class citizen along with the Windows and Linux versions, based on the same living codebase. Therefore we should be able to always update all the different operating system versions in parallel and keep the feature sets in sync.

Adding Mac compatibility to our ever-changing game code was not an easy task, it has taken more effort and time than we anticipated. But choosing this approach was worth it. This preview version is in no way different from the official 1.15 version of ETS2, so people participating in the beta can already sign up to World of Trucks and take part in our SCS Polar Express special!

Leave your comments, thoughts and bug reports in our MAC beta forum please. Follow this step-by-step guide to obtain access to the beta on your computer.

Happy Trucking!

    1. It would, perhaps. But with the graphics this game has, the iPad would explode. XD Unless they nerf everything to make it playable.

  4. Now this is what I call fair approach to a client. Clear "this is beta, think twice before giving us your money", not standard these days "hey, buy our product, give us cash, give, give, give, we have awesome stuff and cookies (btw, it's beta)".

    1. Open your finder, do 'command, shift and g' all at the same time. In the icon that appears, type in '~/Library', go to application support, and find Euro Truck Simulator 2. That is the steam version. Copy any mods/saves into here.

    2. So, I have the same problem, but I can't search for the library... It says it can't find the folder..

  11. Ola, sou brasileiro, rsrs, porque não esta dando pra baixar o multiplayer? quando entro no site> alpha.ets2.com < pra baixar o multiplayer o site não abre.

    1. 1- O pessoal na SCS não fala português.
      2- A SCS não é responsável pelo mod multiplayer. Eles não tem como te auxiliar.
      3- Os servidores do mod MP tem estado sob grande carga nos últimos dias. Você não é o único que tem tido dificuldades em baixar o mod.
      4- alpha.ets2.com não é o endereço do site do mod multiplayer. Tente apartir do site oficial deles: http://ets2mp.com

    2. Obg, mais tipo, o multiplayer vai ser liberado ainda ne? pq nao ta dando pra baixar.

    1. You buy and download the PC version of ETS2 via Steam (right now 85% off), and then follow procedures in the guide above!

  17. I've finished downloading. But when it will be played, there is a warning that this game requires at least OS 10.9, while I am still using 10.8. And why you do not tell it from the beginning? -_-

    ReplyDelete
  18. will it be available on earlier versions of mac??

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sorry for the question, but where can I find download for it? Thx

  20. Hallo SCS! Are you planning non steam ETS2 version for Mac? I use box version for PC, but I don't want to register on steam. I would like to activate ETS2 simply with PC - box code. It's good when internet provider has problems and I don't connect with web.

  21. Hello!! I am a mac user, and have been running the full game in parallels since the 1.8.2.5 update. I can, therefore, guarantee that this is a 'first class' game. I am able to run it at much higher graphics. I have however, found this bug, which only appears at some points. Unfortunately, I can not describe when it happens, as it does not appear to be consistent.

    Here is a link to a screenshot I took:

    Hope the beta is put into a full game soon!!

    1. Sorry, I forgot to describe what it was!! It makes the text appear as blobs, rather than texts. It also, on the navigator UI, the road, both discovered, undiscovered, and even the arrows, appear as red with some stripes.

      Hope this helps

    2. I have also seen that number plates do not seem to exist any more. The AI cars have got no license plate and also no symbol (as in, audi or volkswagen). The trucks have symbols, but no licence plates. Even my own truck has no plate any more. =P
