The upcoming major update for American Truck Simulator will contain a plenty of addings from general improvements of the game map and AI improvements, to more realistic gear shift system and support for special game controller, like a special gaming gear boxes. But today we would like to tell you about the changes, coming to the World of Trucks.
The biggest change is hiding right under the "hood": most of the early, sending and storing data on developer's private server has been reconfigured to work with cloud services. As the World of Trucks will give access to an increasing number of gaming features, it will require more and more bandwidth. Realizing this, the developers decided to switch to cloud storage in almost everything. This change should fix a few bugs and instabilities that you might encounter when connecting the World of Trucks.
Contracts will be available for all official extension of the game map. Full support for the American Truck Simulator will finally be added, as well as support for all Euro Truck Simulator 2 DLC.
In addition, the client part of Contracts was also improved, so you can take them right out of the game without having to Alt-Tab to browser. It is much more convenient, and making Contracts equal to other jobs in the game. You will be able to easily see all the Contracts which are near to your location. But, of course, no teleports! You always have to drive your truck to the location.
At the moment the developers are in the bugfixing stage and in the latest pre-release preparations of the upcoming update, which is already in closed beta. Before open beta the developers want to fix some more errors and bugs. All we have to do is wait.
