Trailer News Part 1: American Truck Simulator

We are working hard on the new Update 1.35 for both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator. It's shaping up to be one of the biggest updates ever. We plan for an extensive open beta period, but there is still a lot of internal testing and tweaking left to do before we reach that stage. A series of upcoming blog posts will focus on key new features and new content.

In today's post, we want to focus on new types of trailers and loads coming to American Truck Simulator with Update 1.35. The new additions will be very handy in the Pacific Northwest!

Chip van trailers are coming to service the woodworking industry especially in Oregon and in our upcoming Washington state map expansion. They will be available with three body variants: van, moving floor, and iconic belly van. Chip van trailers are ownable and will be available to haul from the freight market. We also plan to use them to transport other suitable loads in other industries and states.

Driving towards Washington State, you will have a chance to meet a piggyback truck transport consisting of Kenworth T680s. The new Kenworth truck manufacturing plant special prefab will produce plenty of trucks to deliver to truck dealers all around the game world. This new unique structure deserves its own topic in the near future, so we'll come back to it again.

Image

Image

B-double trailers are another highly requested type of trailer we've created for this update. You will find them on the roads of Oregon and Washington where they are legal. By combining different types of trailers, a huge number of possible B-double combinations is possible. They are spectacular to look at, but towing them will be a new challenge for all our drivers.

Image

Image

Image

Some final words? Perhaps: "Skeletal Container Carrier!"

The players of ETS2 can look forward to an upcoming blog post concentrating on new trailer additions for their game, too!

Farming in Washington State

From bustling cities to evergreen forests, Washington is a diverse state that is home to many significant industries including one of its largest, Agriculture. Each one of the around 40,000 farms require constant attention to keep running; they depend on truck drivers to deliver their materials, machinery and most importantly their produce to export across America and beyond.

Image

The upcoming Washington State map expansion will feature many farm industries that will not only include growing just crops, but also those that specialise in other produce such as pumpkins, tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables.

Just as important as the produce grown are the farmyards themselves, which can vary from large companies with many acres of fields, to small country family farms. Essential to their operations are the structures which occupy the land such as greenhouses, silos, and most importantly, shelter for the livestock. On your travels, you may even come across farm animals such as pigs, sheep or even large buffaloes known for roaming and grazing, or just enjoying the sunshine.

We can't wait for you to explore these farms amongst many other industries! In the meantime, why not add Washington State to your Steam Wishlist?

They are really stepping their game up, incredible details. My only wish it that they add some more challenging parking at these locations. And a animation of loading/unloading.

Washington: Landscapes

If you have ever had the chance to visit Washington State in the USA, you may have noticed that almost everywhere you go you will see green, even while driving through the city areas. The state is even nicknamed the 'Evergreen State' and has the Green Darner Dragonfly as their state insect mascot.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Our team has been focusing on re-creating these forests and landscapes to bring them as close as possible to their real-world counterparts which you can see from this gallery of screenshots.


Image

Image

From Hemlocks to Firs to Spruces, many trees can be found almost anywhere you turn in Washington State. In fact, the number of trees is so high that Rock Paper Shotgun's Senior Editor Alec Meer mentioned them 20 times in their recent article, which showcased an exclusive early look at our upcoming map expansion.

Image

Image

Just as impressive as the forests are the views you will come across while driving. With new horizon models, we are sure that we will be seeing a lot more drivers using the in-game photo studio to share pictures from their travels.
