Euro Truck Simulator 2 – Update 1.3 Released

SCS Software developers of Euro Truck Simulator 2 have released the latest patch for the title which addresses various issues and bugs within the title. The patch contains lots of fixes and improvements, and a new patch application which should hopefully make the updating procedure a lot smoother.

It may be a good idea for you to back-up your player profile (look for it in Documents > Euro Truck Simulator 2), especially if you are using mods which may have compatibility problems with this update. This way you would have a fall-back option to temporarily revert to a previous version in case of problems.
