With all of the excitement surrounding the recent releases and updates coming to American Truck Simulator, we are happy that the work on the planned 1.39 update has reached an important milestone! We are ready to preview it with the player community in the form of an Experimental Open Beta.
It will still take at least several weeks before the full 1.39 release, so please keep in mind that this is the first open beta iteration and it is very much still a work in progress build which will receive updates throughout the open beta period. That's also the reason, why we have decided to call this an experimental beta, to emphasize that the initial release is rather raw and only recommended for consideration for seasoned testers.
At this time, the 1.39 Experimental Open Beta will only be available for Windows users. Linux and Mac OS users will receive the option to opt-in to the beta at a later date.
If you want to take it for a spin, you can help contribute by reporting any bugs you may encounter at the appropriate section of our official forums. Your feedback and reports are extremely valuable for our team and we thank you in advance for taking the time to help us out.
