American Truck licensing

What trucks will be available in American Truck Simulator? Will we have official trucks licensed in the game?

If you are wondering about any of these, I will clarify everything for you in this post.

Until this moment, SCS informed us in their latest post that they planed to release ATS with at least 4 trucks in the game but, unfortunately the negotiations about licensing the trucks in game takes a longer time than expected.

At the release date the game will be launched with only 2 trucks officially licensed. Kenworth T 680 and Peterbilt 579 will be part of the game when it will be released.

Soon enough, we will see some more licensed trucks part of free American Truck Simulator updates. A truck that will be released soon after the game is out is the Kenworth W900 and the Peterbilt 389.

The following trucks that you will see in this post are just for illustrative purposes and they might appear in the game after the release if SCS manages to get the proper licensing for them.

You can see that there is a Freightliner Cascadia Evolution and a Volvo VNL780 (or Vailant as they call it).

Game Bonus

American Truck Simulator will be released in both digital and retail on February 3, 2016. And that is an official release date after waiting years for this game.

SCS wants to go on a sales spike right after the game will be released, so that way it catches the attention of many other players and to raise awareness of the game’s release. People can help them by following the game on Steam (pressing the Follow button). To reward everyone they will give a free Steampunk-themed truck skins. The say that ‘as long as you follow the game’s official Steam community announcements and activate your game on Steam during the week after its release, you are eligible for this bonus.’

American Truck Simulator Release Date

It’s official! We have a American Truck Simulator Release Date! This date was given by SCS so now we know this is trustworthy.

The ATS release date is February 3, 2016.

Are you guys excited or what? This release will be just the first step, because American Truck Simulator will be updated much more in the future, SCS planing to include the whole North American map in the game.

Sounds in American Truck Simulator

American Truck Simulator will get a lot of custom sounds especially for prefabs. Depending on where you are, custom sounds will be played in the background. Also it will depend whether it is day or night which sounds will be played. Check the video below posted by SCS today to convince yourself.

Also we have reasons to believe that American Truck Simulator release date is very close to us as SCS said in their latest post that they are working on the ‘finishing touches’.

American Truck Simulator Tractor-trailer challenges

Hey guys! I come again with some ATS updates. We will have a wider selection of semi-trailers lengths of American Truck Simulator.

This will change the game experience a little. So get ready because it won’t be as easy to manoeuvre the truck in American Truck Simulator like in ETS2. Sure we will still have some short trailers in ATS, but generally in the USA trailers and of course trucks are longer. Take the image example below to visualize what I am talking about.

Make sure your driving skills are on point while waiting for American Truck Simulator to be released!

Read SCS Software’s original post:

American Truck Simulator Trailer variety

It’s been a minute since I posted more info about American Truck Simulator! Well SCS got some stuff for us from the inside of the making of ATS.

We will have a really big variety of trailers in game. Some of them will be smaller, some of them bigger. SCS had some problems adapting them to the AI traffic and intersections but they believe they got a good solution for it.

Having bigger trailers in American Truck Simulator will ‘spice up the game by having tighter places to maneuver through’.

American Truck Simulator – Californian realism

Hey there ATS fans! This is not an update post or anything, it’s just me expressing my excitement that I have towards the release of American Truck Simulator.

After watching many pictures of the game, I am getting more and more excited by the environment of ATS. The western feel of the Californian side of the US can be seen and I have to say that with the graphics combined with the environment, gives me a little feel of GTA5. Why am I saying that? Take this picture for example.


Doesn’t this look a lot like a 24/7 store you would normay go and rob in GTA5? I thought so. Now lets not talk about those AI classic cars..(they are stunning) I will speak more about the traffic cars in a future article anyways.

Thank you for reading! A new article coming really soon so stay in touch by liking out Facebook page:

American Truck Simulator uncensored opinions

Now after talking so nice it’s time to tell some things I don’t like. They don’t bother me, but it’s just place for more and better. The picture below could be easily recreated in ETS2 right now and that says it all. It’s no secret that American Truck Simulator is using the same engine, but still..


Another thing I hope won’t happen but I know it will is the weight stations. I bet they will be just like in 18 WoS Haulin. Boring and old! In my imagination I think there will be just the weight station models and a point where you go and guess will always say you got the right weight and you are ready to go!! As I said nothing exciting.. Please note again this is just my perception because we don’t know yet how it will actually be.
