American Truck Simulator is finally getting another map expansion. This time, it’s the northern state of Oregon. SCS has dropped a new trailer showing off various scenes from the “Beaver State”, putting a strong emphasis on its forest trails and logging industry. The map is a big change over the others currently in the game, which consists mostly of dry, rocky desert scenery.
The Oregon map adds 5,000 miles of road to the world of American Truck Simulator. 14 major cities have been modeled, such as its capital, Salem, and the well-known city of Portland. Speaking of scenery details, SCS has created over 700 new 3D assets for players to observe as they make their way around the state. SCS has also included various natural and man-made landmarks such as Crater Lake, Mount Hood, and the Youngs Bay Bridge.
Oregon’s arrival into American Truck Simulator increases the overall world size to four states. This is the second map expansion that has come to the game after the release of New Mexico last year. At the rate that SCS is going, the American Truck Simulator map should expand out to all of the remaining 44 continental US states by 2062! But, of course, there’s no telling how much more the team will actually add; we’ll just have to wait and see.
On a smaller note, some new trucks would certainly be nice. Alas, SCS has yet to formally announce whether or not that will officially be happening. There have been a few hints to such a thing in recent times, though. In the meantime, mods will continue to tide virtual truckers over with unofficial scenery expansions and additions to the vehicle line-up as SCS slowly rolls out official new content to the game. It, along with Euro Truck Simulator 2, was recently updated, and more are surely on the way.
The Oregon DLC for American Truck Simulator will launch on October 4, 2018 for the price of $11.99.Related to this article
