  • Completely revamped the audio logic for truck engines, now boasting 7 distinct engine profiles sourced from real trucks. Additionally, driving within the truck cabin introduces new sounds for brake, throttle, gear shifts, and driver seat position.
  • The audio profiles for traffic vehicles have also been updated, encompassing a total of 8 new profiles categorized into passenger cars, medium-sized vehicles, large trucks, fire engines, and buses.
  • Added one new playable truck and two new trailers.
  • Overhauled fines logic for collisions, ensuring penalties are only incurred in catastrophic situations, addressing previous instances of unwarranted fines.
  • AI traffic improvements – this is an ongoing process, but for this update, the following bugs/improvements have been fixed/added: cars that bounce like popcorn in specific places in the world are no longer doing it / cars are avoiding collisions with guardrails at junctions/ significant reduction in the number of cars that flip when taking a turn. We are working on more improvements.
  • Updated environmental audio within truck cabins to reduce external sounds and apply a lower value for low pass filter frequency.
  • Introduced numerous new locations on the map, primarily featured in the new story DLC.
  • Implemented various enhancements to night lighting throughout the game.
  • Added about 20 new Freedom to Roam missions
  • Introduction of road traffic incidents. These events will occur randomly in the Freedom to Roam mode, while in the Brave Girl DLC, we have a designed event of this type. This is the initial version of these kinds of events.
  • Updated logic for traffic lights in the game.
  • Addition of many new pedestrians in the areas around the rural roads. (PS5 and Series X only)

Known Issues

  • Navigation visualization works differently on PS5 compared to Xbox. We are working on improving the PS5 navigation.
  • In some specific locations, traffic cars may behave strangely. We are working on additional traffic fixes and improvements.
  • When playing inside the cabin, you may notice that the dashboard and the mini-map are not stable enough. This is an engine issue that will be fixed in the next engine version (Unreal 5.4), and we are planning to upgrade Truck Driver: The American Dream to the new Unreal version.
