Euro Truck Simulator 2 developer SCS Software has contacted us in regards to a recent rumour that has been doing the rounds, confirming that the sequel, American Truck Simulator, will not be arriving next month as some sites have stated.
Placeholder dates on various online stores indicated American Truck Simulator would be arriving in February, 2015, but SCS Software has reiterated that it's never announced any release period whatsoever for the Stateside sequel. Well, looks like I’d best put that copy of American Road Trip Anthems back in its case. Fare thee well Steppenwolf, see you later in the year.
Continuing on from the massive success of Euro Truck Sim 2, American Truck Simulator will take trucking over to the United States, and looks to be recreating the entirety of it to scale, with more than 100 explorable cities planned. All-new weighting stations will also be included, where drivers cruising down highways may occasionally be required to verify their loads complies with regulations. This is not a feature that will be getting included in Euro Truck Simulator 2 though.
While the initial release of American Truck Simulator will be restricted to the United States, it's likely that future updates and expansions will incorporate nearby territories such as Canada and Mexico. Keep your eyes trained on Game Debate for any future updates on ATS.
Will you be embarking on the voyage to the States to get your truck sim fix? What tunes will you be loading up for the radio for those long haul journeys down Route 66? Top of my list.
