American Truck Simulator’s next expansion is Wyoming

As American Truck Simulator continues to expand the map eastward across the United States with new DLC, the next stop will be in Wyoming. Ah, the Cowboy State! The tenth-largest state in the contiguous US yet the least populous. Gonna be so long lonely days on the trail, partner. But they might be lovely days, seeing as Wyoming includes parts of the Rocky Mountains and…

Trash up your American Truck Sim cabin with burgers and coffee cups

Say what you want about the drivers in American Truck Simulator, but they're sparkling housekeepers. Sitting up there in their spotless truck cabs, with nary a crisp packet to betray the long hours spent at the wheel. It's all a bit sterile, really. Thankfully, this week's Cabin Accessories pack lets you vandalise the place with tacky nick-nacks and discarded meal deals, making your home on…

Feature: The best games in the whole wide world

The 35 best ultrawide games on PC

Ultrawide gaming monitors are the kind of hardware that might seem too excessive, maybe even a bit too gamer to bother with for playing games on PC, especially when their demanding resolutions often require powerful graphics cards to make the most of them. Once you try one, though, there's no going back. I've been a big fan of ultrawide gaming monitors for years now, mostly…

American Truck Simulator adds more sightseeing spots

Driving a virtual truck is a serious job, no doubt, but I make time to appreciate the view in American Truck Simulator. The haul 'em up tentatively introduced sightseeing spots with its Idaho expansion, a few spots where we can roll up to enjoy cinematic views of landmarks and landscapes, and now it's added more. Preset cutscene points are not the first-person wandering I ache…

American Truck Simulator pulls into Idaho today

It's time to update your American Truck Simulator road atlas, drivers. The big stateside truck 'em up heads deeper into the midwest today with American Truck Simulator - Idaho, adding miles and miles of the state's valleys, potato pastures and cold hard tarmac to haul your way across - and a new Viewpoints feature to give you a fresh perspective from outside the cab.

American Truck Simulator’s new graphical upgrade isn’t huge, but it is nice

Just ahead of the new American Truck Simulator's launch, developers SCS Software have injected a touch of nitro into the game engine with screen space ambient occlusion (SSAO). This technique for making shadows more realistic is not a mega-fancy and drastic modern technobell or cyberwhistle, but it is a welcome one. The scenery just feels more... present. So simply by downloading a patch, my game…

American Truck Simulator will encourage sightseeing with Viewpoint cinematics

As a frequent virtual tourist in American Truck Simulator, I am delighted to hear that developers SCS Software are adding feature catering to Sunday drivers like me who really want to admire the scenery. No, they're not letting us get out of our cabs and walk around the world, but they are adding little nodes you can visit in certain places to watch a cinematic…

Feature: One Off The List

The 9 best road trips in PC games

Kick the tires, whistle at the paint job, spin the keys on your finger like a revolver and then shoot the car with the little laser of unlocking. It’s time to get back on the road. What’s that? Entire country in a state of unprecedented lockdown? I see. Well, lucky for you, we concern ourselves here only with pretend cars, the indoor joy of fictional…

American Truck Simulator’s new sound engine makes engines sound great

The simulated traffic of American Truck Simulator is now packing some satisfying upgrades under the bonnet, with a new sound engine helping make the world feel more real. Other vehicles sound more present as they trundle past, and I feel the wind whipping in my hair when I use another new feature: the ability to wind your windows down. It's nice, all this.

American Truck Simulator heads to Colorado after its Idaho tour

American Truck Simulator is continuing its quest to digitally map America's highways, one state at a time. But before even bringing the great state of Idaho to completion, SCS Software have already announced their next addition to the expansive digital truck-a-thon. Get in gear, truckers, we're heading to Colorado. Land of the trees, home of the blazed, American Truck Simulator - Colorado's icy peaks and…

Feature: Keep on truckin'

How American Truck Simulator recreates the grand American west

Oh, to visit Spokane on a bright summer morning. Bakersfield, Albuquerque, Reno and Salem. The evening sun shining across the surface of the I-10. In these locked-down times, American Truck Simulator is a chance to tour America, or at least its western edge, running from Washington in the north down to California in the south, and over to Utah and New Mexico in the east.…

Looks like American Truck Simulator will visit Colorado after Idaho

As American Truck Simulator continues to expand across the USA with new state expansions, it looks like Colorado will follow the upcoming Idaho. So far, developers SCS Software have only been talking about future states after finishing one but now they're teasing a new one before Idaho even have a release date. Does this indicate they might be speeding up the pace of releases? I'd…

Stock up on jerky and moisturiser, because American Truck Simulator is headed to Utah when its next expansion launches on November 7th, developers SCS Software have announced. The seventh state continues the truck 'em up's long journey east with another 3500 digimiles of virtuaroad. Watch the new trailer below for a peek at Utah sights including those iconic red rocks, a big hole in the…

American Truck Simulator rolling into Utah in November

After the soothing dampness of Washington, American Truck Simulator will depart for Utah in its next expansion. Developers SCS Software have now announced that will launch in November, and celebrated the news with a 17-minute video showing one Utah journey. That trucks from the Glen Canyon Dam in Arizona, over the river, across the border, through a small town, to the desert, and into the…

American Truck Simulator is making me fear the terrible dryness of Utah

I am a damp person. I was born by the sea, I was raised by the sea, I live by the sea, I swim in the sea, and if I'm lucky I'll die in the sea. I would describe myself as a bin bag full of sea water. I am still surprised to feel physical discomfort looking at American Truck Simulator's upcoming Utah expansion. One…

Have you considered the comforting sight of a big hole in the ground?

Like a doomed Junji Ito character, I cannot stop admiring the vast spiralling open-pit mine coming to American Truck Simulator in its upcoming Utah expansion. Kennecott Copper Mine cuts a spiral one kilometre deep and four kilometres wide across dozens of levels. Over one century old, it is a registered National Historic Landmark. It has caused more environmental damage than I can fathom. Developers SCS…

American Truck Simulator expands to Utah this year

Having hit Washington in American Truck Simulator's latest expansion, we've run out of contiguous USA to the north and must resume our trek eastward. Developers SCS Software announced yesterday, on American Independence Day, that Utah is the next state they'll add to their lovely haul 'em up. Utah! The Beehive State. Utah! From sandy deserts through rocky canyons to piney forests. Utah! Where orange hoodoos…

American Truck Simulator now rolling through forests and mountains of Washington

After several days of thomping basslines and screaming industry professionals in service of games that won't be out until next year, tonight I am very much looking forward to a quiet drive through forested mountains. American Truck Simulator just launched its Washington expansion, adding another state to haul cargo through - a real pretty state at that. Sea! Mountains! Forests! Bridges! Logging roads! The Grand…
