    In short, if you're running a 32bit operating system then the version of BeamNG you're running will no longer be updated

    The deprecation of 32 bit support leads me to believe there are probably some big changes coming for Beam in terms of the engine and such. Also probably means we're not far off the update release now, exciting stuff :)

    Windows 7 has a 64 bit version
    Infact, even Windows XP had a 64 bit version

    I dont want to be that guy but usally the teasers are on tuesday, today is monday. And normally there is always one teaser at least one day before the update. I think we are actually close to the update considering the extra information on steam about the deprecation of 32 bit.

    It's just a technical information for those few players who are still running a 32-bit OS. Nothing more, nothing less. :)
    But yeah, judging by the fact of solely focusing on the 64-bit OS and the ease of development of the game engine this focus brings, there's a considerable possibility that we're nearing the 0.25 Update.

    No, there’s no 32bit hardware that can handle BeamNG. Latest desktop CPUs that are 32bit are from 2002, well technically there are newer models but not powerful enough to run BeamNG anyway. Practically it’s an issue for 0.5% of users that have outdated 32bit software, but if they run BeamNG, they must have 64bit hardware so it’s up to and upgrade of OS.

    Edit: kinda Ninja’d by a minute hah

    I jumped over here as fast as possible when I saw the new post about the removal of 32 bit support wondering if the update dropped. It's easy to tell using the speculation thread, you don't even have to go to the most recent page. If the max amount of pages is 30 more than the day before, chances are the update dropped :p

    They said "With the release of the 0.25 32bit will be deprecated"
    This makes me think 0.25 is almost done.

    I see two scenarios.

    Either they posted this in time before 0.25 so that ppl wont get surprised about the 32bit deprecation.

    OR they rushed the info now if the release is this week.

    Both plausible tbh, its things like this that can be forgotten working with something that is obvuous within the companys 'walls' but not at all obvious on the outside.

    To help things out, 32-bit CPUs started to fall out of fashion around 2007, when the Core 2 line was released by Intel. Given that a Core 2 Duo barely loads the game, it's safe to assume that only a few people will be affected (for example, a 2006 Polycarbonate Intel iMac would be unable to run Beam, but a 2009 Thick Unibody iMac would (with great difficulty
