Get behind the wheel of Mercedes-Benz New Actros right now!
Update 1.18 is ready


After a fruitful open beta period, we believe that the Mercedes-Benz New Actros truck is ready for release at last. We'd like to thank all beta participants for helping us make this Euro Truck Simulator 2 update as polished as possible!

Further tweaks to the vehicle are still planned (in fact to most other trucks in the game); we'll be adding more tuning options in future updates for example. But you can already have a ton of fun driving the new vehicle in the current form for sure!

Without further ado feel free to update your Euro Truck Simulator 2 immediately.

For Steam users its an automatic process. Retail users are now able to use our Updater tool to sync their game to the latest version.

Let's do a quick recap of what went into 1.18 Update of Euro Truck Simulator 2:
  • New truck: Mercedes-Benz New Actros
  • Mercedes-Benz brand is in the game
  • Improved vegetation (prefab vegetation distances, rebalanced vegetation LODs, more settings)
  • DRL for Iveco Hi-Way, Mercedes-Benz New Actros, Volvo FH, DAF XF Euro6
  • New trailer skins
  • Updated radios list
  • Support for weather-based pedestrian spawning, support for multiple animations
  • Over a thousand minor fixes in world models and in the map

    1. Well, first there was 1.0. Then the 1.1 update was released. Then 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 and on and on until 1.16, 1.17 and 1.18. And then comes...

    2. Oh, ok. Next time I want someone to count to 19 for me I'll let you know.

  13. Good job, SCS. I'll continue to deliver with my Volvo 750cv anyway, much powerful! :P

    I've noticed that the new Actros have side bar with 6 wheels chassis. Why not on the other trucks?

    Also, can you improve the hired truckers' IA? They don't make so much money if their travel is always Garage-Destination > Destination-Garage. Sometimes they even returns to their garage's city without loads!

  19. Awesome paint job on the truck.!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thanks SCS!!

    If your still planning on tweaking the other trucks, could you PLEASE do something about the DAF XF105? It pains me to see the painted on cables at the rear of the cab.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Still will not run 64-bit version from the game directory, goes to only via the Steam client.
    I do not know what to do. I do not run the game via Steam client, but from the Windows desktop.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks SCS I enjoy the game every day

  24. Only problem I have with the Scandinavia DLC so far is that there are only six screenshot slots on my World of Trucks page. So much pretty to photograph, especially after the foliage patch!

    ReplyDelete
  28. The online updater is pretty slow and now you don't have a file anymore to do a new installation from. Not too great!

  30. THX for new actros truck!!

    when the game world are coming to Spain, Portugal, France and Italy

    ReplyDelete
  31. I believe that spain portugal and the rest of france and italy along with monaco and some small countries, Grece would be nice, on an American Truck Simulator note, 57% of the truckers haul double trailers because of the amount of the cargo

    ReplyDelete
  32. I can't even download 1.18 so what is the problem?

    ReplyDelete
  33. quando saira a versão oficial demo aqui no site?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Seemingly since this new update, I have noticed drivers being WAY more aggressive coming out of toll booths. I have taken cargo damage twice due to drivers cutting in on me coming out of the booths. This has never happened before. It may not even be a thing, but I just wanted to throw it out there and see anyone else has noticed this behavior.

  35. Muy buen trabajo SCS esta excelente.....Gracias

  36. The best truck sim ever with the best support from SCS software!!Worth the money I spent!!

  37. Amazing update love the new merc saw one at the Brisbane truck show it's a great truck cheers from down under

    ReplyDelete
  38. The online game updater works fine .I was updating my non steam game and no problem

    ReplyDelete
  39. All the work you have done in ETS2 is great. One thing is missing: rigid trucks. If you do it in the end the game will be truly unbeatable. I hope you will soon implenent it into the game.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I managed to update my simulator with the 1.17.1 update but it seems it requires me to enter a serial key for me to play the game but my only serial key nolonger works on it.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Another nice update SCS thanks. Has anyone got 1.18 working with the Oculus Rift DK2 yet?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Nice work SCS!! Please get rid of the interior wind sounds? It is surely messing up the truck sounds and is spoiling the beauty of it all.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Scandinavia is amazing, also thank you for the new Actros, but
    my "wishlist" for an almost perfect ETS2 would contain:
    -- REALISTIC prices , taxes, and EARNINGS (JOB-PROFIT IS TOO HIGH on high levels >> reduce the bonus % and base earning too)
    -- randomly vary over time: the tax demanded on barriers/customs, the price of garages (and upgrading the garage-slots) and also the VAT loan
    -- the same load deliverd between the same 2 points on the map, could have a different price @ a later date (small predefined interval random)
    -- on high levels it make no sense 10.000 loan value, it could be replaced with 200.000
    -- truckers AI: prevent everytime Garage-Destination > Destination-Garage jobs
    -- some AI (not too many) entering-exiting from companies, hotels, even from repair centers
    -- improve the FPS further on highend PCs, without alter the actual graphics
    -- also improve some terrain-decors (old-quarry rocks look painfull), and 3D coupling-wires for old DAF + other fixes on trucks where needed
    -- car transporter trailer has 3 different variants, but it's the same car type, just the color differs (as an extra tip: we wish mixed car brands on the same trailer)
    -- sideskirts for other chassis
    -- also, a great feature would be an option to bring/copy just m3u or other playlist formats in /music folder, OR (i haven't tried yet, but suppose it doesn't work: the mp3 shortcuts)

    -- AI enriched with 2 or 3 types of small trucks (Antos....) (low poly models for interiors)
    -- MULTI-POINT DELIVERIES and tandem trucks !
    -- random failures (motor, electronic system, brakes, lights), changeing baterry when discharged, changing the tires (not only repairing)
    -- Realistic connection for trailer with players interaction
    -- signing the custom papers (and showing them at customs)
    -- LOAD/UNLOAD the truck (a 4-5 seconds video as SNEAK-PEEK )

  47. For new Mercedes please fixing position of driver because i don't see the full left mirrors.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. you can use F4 to adjust drivers position as desired, but yes, a fix for that is welcomed, probably it will be done in the next big update.
      And another model is also affected by same problem, didn/t remember which.

  48. Gracias por poder disfrutar este nuevo camion esta genial el juego lejos es el mejor juego de simulacion de camiones del mundo.

  49. There is some problem with the Job Market listing by price.

    I had the truck in Lublin with a 113000 € job offer and it was not listed on the continental map list, but was listed only if I clicked on the Lublin dot on the map.

    The job offer should've been listed on the first or the second page of the list because it was one of the highest job offers at the time, but it was not listed on the continental map list, even though I have the list sorted by price.

    I've experiencing this problem with version 1.18, I don't recall experiencing it in earlier versions of Euro Truck Simulator 2.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Congratulations!
    Finally you got all official licenses of European major truck manufacturers.
    It is fantastic job.

    But why aren't you creating side badges for old trucks?
    If SCS create them, I don't need own real emblem mod anymore...
