How handy it is to have an American on call! I've been phoning Hayden up in the morning (or the middle of his night, whatever), with queries like "What the hell is 'cilantro'?" and "I'm sorry, but: a FANNY PACK?" It's also handy to have one write about American Truck Simulator [official site] and spot basical geographical facts like: Las Vegas is definitely not in California.
Developers SCS Software had said that the initial release would only bring Cali, but they've now announced that Nevada (home of Las Vegas, don't you know!) will be available at launch as free DLC, and Arizona will follow free tree.
"We were still not sure about Nevada's finish-line when the game box packaging design was being finalized, so the boxes sitting on retail shelves will put the spotlight on California, but there is actually more coming your way right out of the gate," SCS explain. Nevada will be available on launch day as free DLC (in my day we'd call that a patch etc.) then Arizona will follow later. "You will just have to wait for it a little bit longer," they explain, "this part of the world is still under development."
They say they have plans to add new areas beyond Arizona but most, "if not all," of them will be paid DLC. Just how much they add will depend on how well it does.
American Truck Simulator is coming on February 3rd, priced at $20/€20.
