On Thursday (27th July), American Truck Simulator by SCS Software was updated to version 1.48, and with that also came the release of some new Texas DLC content.
The new DLC includes approximately 500 “real” miles across eight new roads, highways and interstate sections. If you know Texas, you’ve probably heard of the five-level stack interchange nicknamed the ‘High Five’. That particular area has also been included.
There are those roads, plus more landmarks and depots to travel to, plus five new settlements in the form of Greenville, Shamrock, Sharman, De Kalb and Paris.
This will also include “Texarkana” which is “a unique city that straddles the border between Texas and Arkansas, with the state line running through the center of the city.”
On Tuesday (1st August) there is another DLC planned to release – The Oklahoma DLC.
Other updates that are included for all players include updates to the vehicles, gameplay and UI, and those specific changes from SCS Software’s blog have been republished below. Be sure to check out the entire blog directly at the SCS Software website as well.
