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…

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.

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…

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…

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…

American Truck Simulator: Washington making Twin Peaks truckdreams come true next week

America would have you believe that California is the locus of important video game happenings next week with E3. Pish. The real American excitement of next week is American Truck Simulator's Washington expansion, which developers SCS Software today announced they'll launch on Tuesday the 11th. E3 be damned, I'm hopping in my virtuarig and driving out Los Angeles, up California and Oregon, past mountains, along…

American Truck Simulator seems off to Washington next

It looks like the next American Truck Simulator expansion will go even deeper into the lands I long for, into the trees and mountains of Washington state. WA! Land of Twin Peaks. WA! Birthplace of riot grrrl. WA! Home of Frasier Crane. WA! Where Valve are. WA! With that nice Twitter account saying if Mount Rainier is visible from Seattle. WA! Where rain is good.…

Breaking news: American Truck Simulator now has better raindrops

For some American or Euro Truck Simulatorettes, as I've decided we pretend long-distance haulage fans should call ourselves, news of a new type of vehicle or trailer is reason to celebrate. For me, the most excited I've ever been about American Truck Sim patch notes is the declaration that they've just made rain better.

The ugly beauty of Euro Truck Sim 2’s first collusion with Russia

Tomorrow, Euro Truck Simulator 2 comes (tragically) the closest it is ever likely to come to Eurovision Truck Simulator - with a wink and a smile, giving up on the idea that 'Euro' is any particular barrier to entry. I look forward to the surely forthcoming ETS2: Australia DLC. But for now, we get Beyond The Baltic Sea. Newbie ETS2 nations Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia…

American Truck Simulator adds spectacle with Special Transport DLC

As a tourist behind the wheel of American Truck Simulator, I'm interested in anything making the world feel more alive, and the latest DLC seems great for that. Out now, the 'Special Transport' DLC whacks in honking great oversized loads from to industrial machinery to houses, so large that we need to follow police escorts and the TV news might send a camera to watch…

Honk honk! American Truck Simulator’s Oregon expansion is out now

The highways and byways of The Beaver State are now open for business, as American Truck Simulator's Oregon expansion has just launched. Oregon is the fifth US state added to the cargo-hauling sim, and the most northerly so far. This means lots of lovely forest to haul lumber from, which pleases me as a trucking tourists, and of course Oregon's western edge is beautiful Pacific…
