SCS Software has once again released more details on the upcoming Montana DLC for American Truck Simulator, this time teasing new ports of entry as well as fresh cargo types coming to the popular sim.
American Truck Simulator: Montana DLC ports of entry
Ports of entry are essentially areas between country or state borders where truckers have their cargoes inspected and/or weighed to ensure legality.
With the forthcoming Montana DLC, the Czech development team has added six of these to American Truck Simulator, including Broadus Weigh Station, Kootenai Rest Area, Haugan Weigh Station, Lolo Rest Area, Frannie Port of Entry and Weigh station NB and SB at I-15.
All of these stations are based on their real-world counterparts and for the most part feature the scenic mountainous landscape we’ve already seen from the Montana DLC. If you’re going to be stopped for an inspection it may as well be in a scenic area, right?
And they don’t come much better than the areas between and around the Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks.
American Truck Simulator: new cargo types
The Montana DLC will also introduce brand new cargo types to American Truck Simulator. Two of the new cargoes relate directly to Montana’s notable timber industry: whole trees can be transported as well as long wooden utility poles – think along the lines of telegraph poles.
Area-specific silane gas can also be transported in the Montana DLC, with the silane gas plant in Butte, Montana being the world’s largest supplier. As well as timber and gas products, players can also expect to transport circuit breakers, waste paper, dumpsters, beet harvesters and good old bin lorries!
The Montana DLC is available to wishlist on Steam now, with a full release expected to arrive with American Truck Simulator’s v1.45 update later this year.
Are you looking forward to delivering a fresh bin lorry to Helena, Montana? Let us know in the comments below.
