The American Truck Simulator juggernaut continues, as developer SCS Software announces more updates in progress for the game. These will include an all-new interstate, revisions to an existing truck and the addition of more custom city intros.
Montana DLC v1.46 update
Off the back of its successful Montana DLC release, SCS has revealed that it plans to add a new highway to the game alongside its v1.46 update. U.S. Route 20 is a highway which runs horizontally across the northern USA, starting on the west coast in Oregon, passing through Montana, Ohio and several others before finishing on the east coast in Massachusetts.
The route will also allow American Truck Simulator (ATS) players full access to Yellowstone National Park from its surrounding state DLC, namely Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, helping connect another large portion of the country in videogame form.
In addition, the new highway will add an extra viewpoint, allowing virtual truckers a better view of Yellowstone and the village of West Yellowstone.
Western Star 57X truck updates
The recently added Western Star 57X truck has become a popular choice among ATS enthusiasts, and SCS and its partners at Western Star Trucks have devised some additional content, including new roof and side fairings, twin stack vertical exhausts and… Christmas lights!
The new options are available to add to the 57X now, with the truck available to purchase in-game from any Western Star Trucks dealership.
Western Star 57X new options:
- A new roof fairing option (Aero II)
- An option for non-heated headlights
- A new side fairing option (Aero II)
- Optional twin vertical exhaust stacks
- An option to add the Christmas Light Accessory
Custom city intros for Wyoming and Colorado DLC packs
Following on from the introduction of new custom city intros in Euro Truck Simulator 2, SCS has been hard at work rolling out the feature across more of its ‘World of Trucks’ cities. The feature began with Austrian cities and the German city of Hannover, but the Czech developer has revealed it will be adding new intros for its Wyoming and Colorado and Wyoming DLC packs too.
As well as these, Euro Truck Simulator 2 will also see its Iberian DLC getting the same treatment in addition to its new map update.
The Montana highway upgrade and custom city intros will be released with ATS’s v1.46 update, while the Western Star 57X update is available now.
