SUMMER SALE! Offer ends July 4
We're very excited to make a big announcement, but first we need to give you a little backstory. Back when we were beginning research work on American Truck Simulator, just a few months after the release of Euro Truck Simulator 2, SCS Software was a team of about 20 people. We made, and kept, a commitment to actively support and expand ETS2, so the core team on the ATS project at thatpoint was just a handful of developers. We hoped that some day the team would grow to be a modest 8-10 people large. They were facing a monumental challenge in trying to portray the continent of North America on a reasonable scale within a feasible time frame.
The new Golden Gate Bridge. Notice anything different?
Fortunately American Truck Simulator started strong out of the gate, and we are now confident that its sales can sustain an even larger development team than we originally hoped for. SCS Software has since more than doubled in size, and we are in the process of hiring even more map designers and 3D artists. Looking at what we have created so far, and considering all the feedback we've gotten from our fans, we are at an intersection: we can either accept things as they are and continue building the world as is, or we can take a step back and change things before it's too late. It's either now or never, as the more of the world we build, the less likely we are going to be able to make major changes.
New U.S. Route 101 tunnel
Having said all that, perhaps the greatest number of complaints from the players of American Truck Simulator have been related to the scale of the map. Your comments are incredibly important to us, and we listen to as many as we can.As such, we had been pondering internally how to meet your feedback for several months while we finished work on the Arizona DLC, and now we have made up our mind: we are, as a free future update, going to increase the scale of the game world of American Truck Simulator. This update will have many clear benefits for you, such as:
We are happy to announce that we are releasing Arizona DLC for American Truck Simulator today.
Discover 15 new cities, admire Colorado River with The Grand Canyon, and explore a section of the famous Route 66!
As promised back in January, the map expansion is automatically unlocked for all owners of the game for free, no matter where or when you have bought it.
We would like to thank all the participants of the Open Beta for their feedback. It was very helpful for us, especially the stress and functional tests of World of Trucks improvements, and the help with ironing out the many little details in Arizona!
“It’s a fundamentally good game, with weighty, nuanced handling, a deep simulation, and higher production values than most sims.”
