Expand your journey across the United States with the latest Kansas update, coming soon to American Truck Simulator.

As per SCS Software’s blog, the game developer stated they are currently working on “The Sunflower State” map, which they teased earlier this month with a cheeky Tweet.

Many avid truckers speculated as to where the next destination would be. Kansas topped the list, of course, since the state is known for their captivating wild sunflowers.

Welcome to Kansas in latest American Truck Simulator update

“Once considered to be the country’s agricultural heartland, ‘The Sunflower State’ has attracted many large businesses and grown economically in other areas due to its central location and convenient infrastructure for logistics operations.

“But, as the nickname suggests, nature is certainly doing very well to keep up with technological progress, as the state parks and vast prairies offer unique views with a marvellous atmosphere that will leave every trucker passing by with something to remember.”

We’re unsure exactly when the Kansas update will be available in American Truck Simulator. However, you can Add to your wishlist via Steam to be notified when it’s up for grabs.

While you wait for the DLC drop, why not take the Western Star® 5700XE for a test drive? The iconic truck is all yours via the Western Star® Trucks dealership, alongside the 49X and 57X.

Just like the XE stands for, the truck defines extreme efficiency while harmoniously blending top performance with modern technology and a classic exterior.

After its stunning appearance at the Mid-America Trucking show in 2016, SCS Software planned to bring this beautiful beast into ATS.

The teaser trailer showcases an incredible interior that looks like the inside of a luxury yacht with a customizable cab in a variety of aesthetically pleasing colours.
