American Truck Simulator patch 1.39 beta is released to the public to test. For now, it’s an experimental beta available for Steam users. Also it will take a few weeks for the full release, after people will report all the bugs. You can report bugs on the SCS Forum. It is only available for Windows users for now. Are you ready to try it? Follow the guide at the end of the article to install it.
For the mods fans, just know they will be available in the ATS 1.39 mods section.
The face of American Truck Simulator will be changed! Firstly, this is massive news because the start interface was the same for a while now. Secondly, SCS is informing us that there will be new features and this redesign paves the way for them. We don’t know yet what features they are talking about but they will be accessed from the new launchpad.
Switch between accounts using a dropdown menu. Also DLC manager, Mod Manager, and Profile Manager have been placed together for easier access. Access the Game Options directly from the start menu – which is great! You don’t have to enter a profile before changing options, which is helpful.
Just like we mentioned in a recent article, lowboy trailers are now available to own. In addition you can even customize them and use them with the ATS Heavy Cargo DLC. Read more on the ATS 1.39 Lowboy Trailers article.
New ATS Viewpoints
This feature was introduced staring with the ATS Idaho DLC. It is a cutscene that players can see with an interesting location. In addition to what was available in Idaho, new viewpoints are added in Washington and Utah. Also each state will get 10 new cutscenes to watch new landmarks, national parks, and industries.
