American Truck Simulator teases the sights, truckstops and random stretches of tarmac of Oregon

17 years a games journalist. I was there for the reveal of Half-Life 2, the comeback(s) of Deus Ex, the splendour of Spelunky, the rise of Plunkbat and that horrifying time that grown men wept when they heard they could hold two guns at once in Halo 2. And yet here I am, very probably more excited than at any other point in my ridiculous…

RPS keeps on truckin with American Truck Simulator interview at EGX Rezzed 2018

So many people love the hyper-specific simulator games about trains or trucks or cities or boats or building PCs. In general, I have questions about why these games don't click with me, and perhaps my problem is that I've been trying to make these games click in the manner of traditional game experiences as opposed to being an entertainment experience entirely other. Which is why…

American Truck Simulator adding scenic Yosemite drive

So far, American Truck Simulator has encouraged safe and legal driving. Don't speed, don't crash, don't run red lights, don't drive through protected forests. But I have longed for the game to be a little flexible with rules of the road in the name of a pleasant drive and my dream is coming true. The next update will add a new road venturing into a…

We’re talking with Truck Simulator devs at Rezzed

Our Adam once told a story in the RPS treehouse about meeting with folks from Truck Simulator developers SCS Software, who were surprised and somewhat confused by how much we're into their virtuatrucks in totally non-ironic ways as chillout games. We really are. (Well, when we're not modding horns into alien wails.) You'll get to see this encounter happen again live on stage in April…

American Truck Simulator heads up north to Oregon

Ah, the American North, where the trees are tall, the roads are winding, and everyone feels just that little bit more relaxed, being closer to Canada's soothing influence. It's just a scientific fact; look it up. After teasing it for a time, SCS Software have announced the next expansion for American Truck Simulator, latest in their freight-driving sim series. This time, you're headed to the…

Help Santa deliver Christmas gifts in Truck Simulator

How can Father Christmas deliver presents to all the children of the world in only one night? Magic. However, Sinterklaas has been caning the peppermint schnapps and wouldn't say no to a bit of help from truckers. American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2 have launched festive events challenging virtuatruckers to haul gifts across Europe and Americky. That's a great act of kindness, and…

American Truck Sim’s New Mexico DLC has hit the road

Do you know the way to Santa Fe? I do. I drove there this morning. Albuquerque too (I only just learned how to spell 'Albuquerque', so expect me to write it a lot), plus Roswell, Farmington, Socorro, and indeed the whole state of New Mexico, which has now made its much-awaited debut in American Truck Simulator.

Hot dog: American Truck Sim, Albuquerque – next week

It's the greatest gaming news of the year, and I promise you that I make this claim with zero irony whatsoever: the latest American Truck Simulator add-on comes out just seven days from now. It adds the state of New Mexico, which means the delights of Breaking Bad heartland Albuquerque, the tinfoil enthusiast-pleasing Roswell, colonial era-styled cities such as Santa Fe, monumental rock formations, scrappy…

American Truck Simulator shows off New Mexico

We still don’t have a release date for the upcoming New Mexico expansion for American Truck Simulator [official site] but developers SCS Software have said they are putting on the “finishing touches”. Eager to show off the sights of this map expansion, they’ve also released a trailer “to whet your appetite”. It’s got canyons, creeks and plane crashes.

This American Truck Simulator road will play ‘America the Beautiful’ as you drive

A stretch of the iconic Route 66 in American Truck Simulator [official site] will play the song 'America the Beautiful' as we drive our trucks over it. The DLC adding New Mexico will include a real stretch of road near Tijeras which really does play a song, a real thing I haven't made up. 'Musical roads' are a clever idea, similar to the rumble strips…

American Truck Simulator closing Highway 1 due to real-world landslide

I like American Truck Simulator [official site] because it's a dreamland version of the USA, one which looks a bit like the country does in movies but is quite separate from reality. This will soon change. Developers SCS Software have announced that ATS's next update will soon close a section of its virtual Highway 1, reflecting the the real Californian landslide near Big Sur in…

Serious haulage: Truck Simulator adding double trailers

Bendy double trailers are coming to American Truck Simulator [official site] and Euro Truck Simulator 2 [official site] this summer, which sounds a treat for serious truckers and a nightmare for me, an idiot who sees Truck Sim as a walking simulator following routes. To virtuatruckers, double trailers are a feature requested for years. To me, double trailers will surely be a way to crash…

American Truck Simulator honking to New Mexico next

The next state being added to American Truck Simulator [official site] is New Mexico, developers SCS Software announced. The Land of Enchantment, locals call it. The Cactus State! Land of Sunshine! Mexico Plus! Mexico Gold! I Can't Believe It's Not Mexico! SCS's recent update upscaling the continent "transforms a great game into a sublime one", our Alec will tell you, and now they're done embiggenning…

American Truck Simulator now gert big again

America is now bigger than ever as American Truck Simulator [official site] has officially launched its rescaling, going from 1:35 scale to 1:20. This means longer roads and grander landscapes, and developers SCS Software have rebuilt a lot to be more interesting and varied too, including new landmarks. The new scale "transforms a great game into a sublime one", our Alec declared after playing a…

Make America gert big again: Truck Simulator rescale now in open beta

The people have spoken, and they want America proper dirty gert big. Leading ideas in the office of President-elect Trump include switching to metric so distances sound greater, breeding miniature cows to mess with perspective, and raising the bedrock on pneumatic lifts so the ground is closer to everyone's eyes. Good ideas, okay, very smart. The biggest. You'll love them. But in American Truck Simulator…

Who’s Boo In Halloween Video Game Events

If you're feeling extra brave, check out our collection of spookyspoos going on this weekend. This isn't a definitive list, mind, just a fair spread of things you might fancy trying. Do share your…

Bang Bang: Wild Wheels In American Truck Sim DLC

American Truck Simulator [official site] offers a fine bit of pootling but it's lacked three things I'd want in My Dream American Driving Experience: a grander scale; a steering wheel whose spokes were gleaming chromed revolvers with ivory grips; and actual proper redwoods. Well! It's getting close. Developers SCS Software have been working on upscaling ATS for a few months, and now they've released cosmetic…

Bigger Skies: American Truck Simulator Being Scaled Up

The dream of American trucking is big skies and grand vistas. American Truck Simulator [official site] is okay at that, especially since Arizona arrived, but it can feel a little dinky. Developers SCS Software have a plan. As well as adding extra states, SCS have announced they're making the whole game bigger by rescaling the world in a future free update. It'll go from 1:35…
