The highways and byways of The Beaver State are now open for business, as American Truck Simulator‘s Oregon expansion has just launched. Oregon is the fifth US state added to the cargo-hauling sim, and the most northerly so far. This means lots of lovely forest to haul lumber from, which pleases me as a trucking tourists, and of course Oregon’s western edge is beautiful Pacific coastline. Clearly it’s an expansion I’ve been waiting for, my scaled skin itching to get further from the desert.

American Truck Simulator: Oregon is published!

We thank our great community: our fans, supporters, and sim-game players for their inspiration, thoughts, and wishes.



We still have a little surprise up our sleeve for today. For all fans of both classic and modern American trucks, we are also unveiling Classic Stripes Paint Jobs DLC at the same time. It comes with a total of eight stylish designs that fit perfectly on all trucks and combine the cabin paint job and trailer design.



We wanted to provide you a yet better value when launching Oregon, so we have combined the new map DLC and the new style DLC into a discounted bundle. You may consider checking out Oregon in Style bundle first before clicking that purchase button on the Oregon Steam Store page.

Today is the day! We are impatiently counting the hours and minutes until the launch of the latest American Truck Simulator Oregon map expansion.

Our plan is to release the DLC this afternoon - around 14:00 UTC

To shorten the wait, we have a new Launch Day Celebration Video for your viewing pleasure. It is following the daily jobs of four friends driving their big rigs through Oregon, eventually uniting to celebrate the special day together.

We are proud to announce that it features a song by Jessica Lynn, a talented young American artist, and songwriter. A while ago, we met Jessica at her evening performance at Nürburgring race circuit. Realizing that she is into trucks, too, together we got an idea to feature one of her original songs in our Oregon promo video...

American Truck Simulator

SCS Software has announced that American Truck Simulator's next big expansion, which showcases the rugged greenery of "Beaver State" Oregon, will launch on PC next week, on October 4th.

Oregon arrives in the form of American Truck Simulator's third major DLC expansion, following on from Arizona and New Mexico, and introduces 5,000 miles of new roads, passing through expansive forests, desert, arid scrubland, and dense urban areas.

SCS' Oregon incorporates 14 major cities - including Portland, Salem, and Eugene - and those interested in doing a spot of sightseeing as they ride toward the infinite horizon will find a variety of natural and man-made landmarks to admire, including Crater Lake, Mount Hood, Thor's Well, Crooked River Valley, Yaquina Head Lighthouse, and Youngs Bay Bridge.

The big trees, wild coast, and many Portlandian bridges of Oregon are coming to American Truck Simulator on October 4th in its next expansion, developers SCS Software announced today. I’m very pleased to see the haulage sim venture farther north into the wet and wild of the Pacific Northwest that captured my heart on a road trip years ago, so absolutely I’ll be trying to relocate my trucking business to a lonely trucking road. Heck, cover my fuel costs and I’ll drive any load around Oregon for free. Here, come see some of the virtual state in this new trailer below.

You may start seeing more news, reviews, images, and videos online this coming weekend. We will be lifting the veil of secrecy then, allowing the media as well as our friends in the senior volunteer tester group to openly start showing their footage from the DLC. We will also keep on working on the launch-day video trailer to make a yet bigger splash at the release.

Let us bridge the time until the release of ATS Oregon DLC by a post showing some of the bridges featured in the map expansion. Thanks to a plentiful amount of rivers in Oregon, our DLC will also contain a considerable number of bridges. We've just shown some major bridges while introducing Portland, but there are way more of them scattered around the state!

https://steamcommunity.com/games/americantrucksimulator/announcements/detail/1691552256185640509



Bridges are landmark objects in the game that are experienced really up close, whenever the player's truck is crossing them. We need to provide a lot of detail, they are not a cheap 3D asset to build quickly. As each bridge structure and the terrain configuration around it is unique, bridges ask for solid planning and coordination across our teams.

We can see the light at the end of the.. bridge. October is getting closer, as is Oregon!

It's on! We have taken quite a while with the open beta - testing and tuning the new version was a very extensive task, as this is one of the biggest game updates we have ever produced. The reactions from the volunteer testers are very enthusiastic, and we are eager for the player-base to enjoy all the new features as well now.



The amount of open beta feedback was so huge, thanks a lot to all the participants! We may not have been able to respond to all of the messages individually, but rest assured that we read everything and all your opinions, suggestions and bug reports are noted. The power of the community is fantastic!

CHANGELOG:
ETS2 only:
ATS only:
  • New roads added: US-550 (NM), US-95 (AZ), US-191 (AZ), Clifton city (AZ) and I-580 Carson city bypass (NV)
  • Remade and redesigned few places (e.g. I5-I80 interchange)
  • Long 53ft trailers (40+ feet from kingpin to rear axle) forbidden in California

MOD ALERT:

Completely redesigned trailer-cargo logic (cargo data, trailer data, economy, etc.). Most mods will need some work to catch up!

To enjoy the 1.32 update, make sure to OPT OUT of beta branches and your game will be automatically updated on Steam.

On the other hand, if you are a heavy mod user and believe that the mods in your mix are still not up to date for 1.32, you may consider switching to 1.31 branch on Steam to continue playing the game with all the mods, while the mod authors catch up to the new features in the game.

Enjoy! And keep your eyes open for the rest of today, we still have great news for you! ;)

We are getting ready for a really exciting week ahead. Many things need to fall into place just right, we are stretched quite thin to pull it all off, but the outlook is positive, so keep your fingers crossed.

First, this Saturday and Sunday, we have the Zolder truck race weekend to attend and to meet our fans from Belgium. At the same time, a second crew is right now in Hannover, Germany, finalizing our booth at the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 Expo, which is kicking off next week.

Meanwhile, we are gearing up for a big day on Monday! We have some important releases on our radar, a new video is ready, and we are thinking of doing a Steam key giveaway for a new DLC that's coming up for ETS2. You should definitely pay attention to our social media all through Monday so that you don't miss a chance to participate. Just keep in mind that we typically target giveaways to veteran players with lots of playtime hours under their belt.



Here is a handy list of our communication channels:
