We already know that American Truck Simulator’s forthcoming Texas DLC is set to focus heavily on the agricultural side of the state’s economy. However, SCS Software has just released more information and images of perhaps Texas’ best-known feature: its landscape.
Texas’ Chihuahuan desert is under the spotlight, with a focus on the mountainous landscape between the Pecos River (site of the highest road bridge in Texas – the Pecos River Highway Bridge) and the limestone peaks of El Capitan.
The arid landscape of the Texas desert – the star of many an old-school cowboy movie – is set to be re-created in all its glory in American Truck Simulator (ATS).
Iconic buttes and mesas are the order of the day, with the geological makeup and look of the virtual landscape sense-checked by the developers’ very own Charles University Geology graduate (namechecked as Andrea – wife of one of the ATS team).
As well as El Capitan, the Texas DLC will feature another eye-catching rock formation: Paisano Peak, in Brewster County. Paisano is an extinct volcano and forms part of the Trans-Pecos Volcanic Field, which makes up a large part of ATS’ Texas DLC play area.
Fortunately, most volcanic activity stopped a few million years ago, so your cistern trailer of fresh milk won’t turn into cheese…
Are you liking the look of ATS’ Texas DLC so far? Let us know in the comments below.
