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…

American Truck Simulator keeps on truckin’ in Oregon next week

The big trees, wild coast, and many Portlandian bridges of Oregon are coming to American Truck Simulator on October 4th in its next expansion, developers SCS Software announced today. I'm very pleased to see the haulage sim venture farther north into the wet and wild of the Pacific Northwest that captured my heart on a road trip years ago, so absolutely I'll be trying to…

10 PC games we’re still looking forward to in 2018

As we stare into the weary, craggy face of the final quarter of 2018, there is still a glimmer of hope. The games are not yet done. They will never be done. And the impending release of them, some close, some a little further away, stirs something within us. The delicate, easily crushed butterfly of excitement. We may catch it yet, to keep in our…

American Truck Simulator’s Oregon is looking lovely

The Beaver State is shaping up real perty in American Truck Simulator, going by new work-in-progress videos from the first-person trucker's Oregon expansion. I am, you may not be surprised to hear, particularly taken with its forests and rivers. I know where I'll be moving my base of operations when the expansion launches later this year. For now, come see Oregon in these new videos.

American Truck Simulator challenges players to clear a landslide

I always enjoy when 'community challenges' have logical in-game consequences, when players pull together to change the world by perhaps shaping a story or opening a new area. In American Truck Simulator, virtuatruckers are pulling together to help clear a landslide and re-open a closed stretch of California's Highway 1. A real-world landslide last year blocked off sections of the beautiful coastal route near Big…

Euro Truck Simulator 2 revamping Germany now, rest of the map later

As SCS Software continue to add to Europe with Euro Truck Simulator 2 (the next expansion focuses on the Baltics), older parts are starting to look a little scrappy. The latest update added more life to its roads but now SCS are thinking bigger. They're currently working on revamping Germany for a free update overhauling its autobahns, touching up its cities, replanting its forests, and…

Euro & American Truck Sim’s roads get even more open

The enduring success of SCS's Truck Simulator series is no huge surprise, even if its initial ascent to fame was unexpected. The combination of light business management, relaxing, meditative repetition and gorgeously recreated environments make for an ideal chill-out experience for people who haven't done long, tiresome driving for a job already. Today, both American Truck Sim and Euro Truck Sim 2 get a little bit bigger,…

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…

Euro Truck Simulator 2 off to the Baltic in next expansion

Euro Truck Simulator 2 developers SCS Software today announced a new expansion for their cheery truck 'em up, tentatively named Beyond The Baltic Sea. It will add new land to pootle around the Baltic sea, with the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, along with a chunk of Russia through to Saint Petersburg and a sliver of southern Finland. The expansion is still a…

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…

Italia is Euro Truck Sim 2 at its most beautiful – but it is time for something more

I've spent a lot more with American Truck Simulator than I have with its by-now much larger predecessor Euro Truck Simulator 2, mostly because a more distant land seemed more romantic than one I am already part of. But ATS, in its current South-Westerly configuration, is a game with a heavy reliance on rock and sand landscapes - evocative for sure, but while we await…

Euro Truck Simulator 2 travels to Italy in new DLC

Europe’s lovely leg has been given a makeover in Euro Truck Simulator 2. Italy has been expanded and fleshed out in the new Italia expansion (and a bit in the base game), so if you’ve ever dreamed of spending your days transporting grapes and marbles up and down winding roads, you’ve got no more excuses for putting it off. It’s out now.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 revisits Italia next week

While my trucking dreams took me to the big skies of American Truck Simulator, some still follow roads closer to home. Euro Truck Simulator 2 will revisit Italy in its next paid add-on, expanding and revamping the country. That will launch next Tuesday, the 5th of December, developers SS Software announced today. Perhaps, as our country tries to hack itself off Europe (accidentally severing several…

Feature: Off the road, off the grid, seeing places we were never meant to see

An American truck driver at the end of the world

My friends, today I achieved the dream of dreams. I boldly went where no-one has gone before. I went behind American Truck Simulator's invisible wall. I saw the world that lay beyond the road. I saw views to take my breath away. I saw the land torn asunder. I saw the laws of physics collapse and invert. And then I met my doom.

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…
