American Truck Simulator’s recently announced Kansas DLC is starting to take shape, with developer SCS Software highlighting a range of brand-new industries set to be added to the game on release.
Kansas is a major player in the aviation industry, being home to both Bombardier Learjet and Textron Aviation – responsible for the Beechcraft and Cessna brands. As a result, the city of Wichita is home to an aircraft factory alongside an aviation servicing facility.
And for those urgent deliveries where a truck just isn’t fast enough, there is an air cargo depot too, showcasing Wichita’s label as the “Air Capital of the World.”
Other manufacturing industries will also be added; with car, battery and food factories, plus a new company, the snappily named ‘Building Materials Factory.’
The city of Hutchinson in Reno County will also be of interest to virtual truckers thanks to its proximity to a natural resource. Nicknamed ‘salt city’ (a big giveaway), Hutchinson will be home to an imposing-looking salt mine in American Truck Simulator, with enough capacity to satisfactorily season the average serving of Mickey D French fries.
SCS is also going to serve up another dash of realism by adding a car park construction site, with players able to drop off all the necessary building materials to create slightly too narrow parking spaces for the general public. Rejoice!
American Truck Simulator’s Kansas DLC is available to Wishlist on Steam now, with a release date yet to be announced.
