Patch 1.44 for ETS2 and ATS Will Add Interesting Feature That Will Increase Realism

Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator will soon get an interesting feature. With update 1.44, SCS Software will add the ability to adjust the suspension height of trucks.

Usually a lot is going on in the Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator community, but we usually don't write about everything. However, despite yesterday's news about remodelling of California in ATS - this time it is worth increasing the frequency, as SCS Software announced a very interesting feature, which should positively influence the realism of both games.

We are talking about the ability to adjust the suspension height of trucks. It will be available in ETS2 and ATS. The feature is to be based on real-world suspension systems, which are extremely important for maintaining vehicle stability and safety. The following videos show how it works in the game.

Until now, SCS Software games were not very realistic in this respect. However, the developer decided to change that, wanting, at the same time, to reduce the problem with occasional difficulties when attaching trailers.

To avoid spoiling the fun for players who might not like the new feature, SCS intends to make it fully optional. So much so, that it won't even map it automatically map to any key - each person will have to do it themselves by first obtaining the appropriate key in-game.

Unfortunately, for now we don't know when to expect update 1.44. For several months now the developer has been announcing innovations that this patch will bring, but still has not provided a release date. It remains to wait patiently.
