Update 1.43 For ETS2 and ATS Goes Live

After extensive testing, update 1.43 is now available for Euro Truck Simulator 2, and with it comes refreshed Lyon, new roads and parts, and numerous improvements.

More tests of the Truck Simulator series have come to an end and SCS Software has released update 1.43 for Euro Truck Simulator 2. The developers have also published a trailer showing the newly-added features.

The main attraction of version 1.43 is the announced refreshed look of the city of Lyon. Virtual drivers will find improved textures and new object models in the French city, as well as three previously absent landmarks (Viaduc de Perrache bridge, Musée des Confluences museum, and Groupama Arena stadium). In addition, the developers have updated the layout of almost the entire city to be closer to the real Lyon.

The game also features new truck parts and customization options, 35 new vantage points, a revamped toll system (although the developers didn't manage to implement all the changes in time in this case), and additional roads on the Iberian Peninsula. Players also received 8 special delivery routes and the ability to purchase a dump trailer. The full list of changes can be found here.

It should be added that American Truck Simulator also received update 1.43 with many analogous changes. In this game, the patch also removed numerous bugs on the map and added a new vehicle: Freightliner Cascadia 2022.

He began his adventure with Gamepressure in 2015, writing in the newsroom, later also covering film and – oh, horror! – technology (also contributor to the gaming encyclopedia). He started with platformers, which he still dearly loves (including metroidvania), but he's also interested in card games (including 'analog'), brawlers, soulslike games and basically every other type of game. Don't ask about the graphics – after a few hours of exposition, he can be delighted with pixelated characters from games that remember the days of the Game Boy age (if not older).
