Euro Truck Simulator 2 version 1.9 features new AI and more

Jonathan Riggall


SCS Software’s Massively popular Euro Truck Simulator 2 has been updated to version 1.9, with improved gameplay and trucks.

1.9 is the biggest single update for Euro Truck Simulator 2 so far, with the biggest change being a brand new traffic artificial intelligence (AI) system. This new AI will allow SCS to add new behavior to traffic in the future, including bringing ‘country-specific behavior at traffic lights’ to the simulator. Traffic in Euro Truck Simulator 2 has always felt a bit lifeless, so new AI can only be a good thing.
