American Truck Simulator News & Announcements
After our first experiment featuring a giant of the American logistics industry on our in-game dynamic billboards, we are now opening this opportunity to yet another huge logistics company: Swift Transportation.

Swift Transportation is a renowned and long-established transportation company with a rich history dating back to its founding in 1966. With a vast fleet of trucks and a dedicated workforce, the company specializes in providing a wide range of transportation solutions, along with a strong commitment to safety, efficiency, and customer satisfaction.

With this new cooperation, we hope to continue inspiring our ATS players who share a deep interest in real-life trucks. For those who have always been intrigued by the idea of a career as a truck driver, this could be the spark that ignites a lifelong journey.

We believe that even the smallest gestures can have a profound impact. By showcasing industry-related content within the game, we aim to create meaningful connections between virtual worlds and real-world opportunities. As countless players pass by our in-game billboards, who knows? Someone might see a recruitment billboard from Swift Transportation and take that as a sign to explore a career in trucking.

We are happy and honoured that Swift Transportation is another mega logistics company seeing huge potential within our #BestCommunityEver and helping us experiment with this innovative concept.

We hope and believe that together, we have a chance to light the path to new careers and aspirations for our ATS players, who are not only virtual truckers but also real-life trucking fans.
The beauty of Kansas goes beyond the endless plains and charming cities, as within its borders lies a number of aquatic wonders waiting to be discovered. So, fasten your seatbelt, and join us today on a journey to see what bodies of water you can expect in the upcoming map expansion for American Truck Simulator.

In the heart of this landlocked state, you'll find a network of rivers that conveniently flow through the region. The mighty Missouri River flows majestically through the northeastern part of the state, while the Kansas River, also known as the Kaw River, meanders from Kansas City to Topeka, offering natural serenity amid the towns and farmlands. Further west, near Hutchinson and Wichita, the Arkansas River adds character to these urban landscapes, blending the natural world with the urban environment.

One of the highlights is definitely El Dorado Lake, located not far from Wichita. While it may not be as expansive as some of the lakes in other states, El Dorado Lake covers a hefty area of 8,000 acres, with the deepest point reaching 60 feet. This reservoir plays a vital role in water resource management and flood control for the region, contributing to the economic and ecological well-being of the area.

In addition to these notable water bodies, Kansas DLC features several smaller dams scattered throughout the state. These dams, along with other reservoirs, though not massive, play essential roles in supporting agricultural activities and offering recreational opportunities. They represent the subtle yet significant part that water bodies play in the state's landscape.

We hope today’s blog post was enough for you to test the waters of the Kansas DLC once it is available. If so, make sure to add the map expansion to your Steam Wishlist to show us your excitement and if you wish to stay in touch with all the latest news, follow us on social media (X/Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok) for instant alerts!
One of the cities to explore in the upcoming Kansas DLC for American Truck Simulator will be Hutchinson. The city is a true hidden gem with a rich history and streets that once thrived thanks to the salt mining industry.

Hutchinson traces its history back to the late 19th century when it was founded in 1871. The city's growth was closely tied to the expansion of the railroad, as it became a strategic railhead for a number of important companies. This transportation connection facilitated the movement of people, goods, and agricultural products in and out of the region, contributing to Hutchinson's early prosperity.

One crucial moment in Hutchinson's history was the discovery of vast underground salt deposits in the late 19th century. This discovery led to the establishment of a thriving salt mining industry, earning the city its nickname "Salt City." The salt mines became a significant economic driver for the area, and over the years, Hutchinson has evolved into a diverse and vibrant community, combining its agricultural heritage with modern attractions.

One of those modern attractions is some of the largest grain elevators and silos in the world. These massive structures play a crucial role in the region's agricultural industry, as they are used for the storage and distribution of grain, particularly wheat and corn. And, most importantly, the in-game Hutchinson will boast the World's Largest Grain Elevator, an iconic landmark that you can't miss. Towering over the landscape, it's a sight to behold as you haul your cargo through this city.

If you are excited to check out the wonderful city of Hutchinson in Kansas DLC, make sure to let us know by adding the map expansion to your Steam Wishlist. And, to always be up to speed with all the latest news, follow us on social media (X/Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok) and never miss out on any important updates regarding this project.

While hauling cargo, you will be able to not only see these beautiful landscapes and areas, but travel through a variety of large and small towns and cities, where you'll find industries, landmarks and more.

Nebraska’s nature is unlikely to attract crowds of tourists, yet it's clear that exploring this charming state offers a wonderful chance to uncover some of the state's lesser-known treasures. This region boasts quite a number of unique characteristics, such as the Sandhills and an impressive amount of rivers.

Nebraska's landscape is characterized by its vast and open spaces, with much of the state being part of the Great Plains region, which stretches across much of central and western Nebraska. These prairies provide habitats for various species of wildlife and offer a true sense of freedom and tranquility for visitors and locals alike.

With so much open and natural space, Nebraska provides the perfect conditions for a variety agriculture businesses. Therefore it is of no surprise that you'll see and deliver to many farm areas, growing a variety of plants, crops, corn, and more.

In the Sandhills region of Nebraska, you'll find a unique and striking landscape of rolling sand dunes covered in native grasses. This area is known for its distinctive beauty and relatively untouched nature, which makes this special environment a peaceful sanctuary that feels far removed from the bustling world.

Given the states vastness and open areas, our teams aspires to portray Nebraska's reality, however, this comes with a few challenges. We continue to remain mindful and aware of the players POV, to create create a journey that has purpose and matches expectations both gameplay and scenery wise. We hope we can find the right balance given how vast and open Nebraska truly is. We are open to hear your thoughts on how this could be achieved in the blog comments or on our forums.

Described as “the loveliest site in the world for a town,” Emporia was founded in 1857. Today, it is known as an "authentic small city" located on the edge of the Flint Hills of Kansas. Today's blog features the work our team has undertaken to recreate the industrial part of the city in our upcoming Kansas DLC for American Truck Simulator, and what drivers can expect to find there.

Don't let the small town atmosphere fool you, this city has quite the busy industry area, featuring warehouses that supply local businesses, shopping malls for its residents, gas stations, factories and even a food plant! You'll find no shortage of delivery contracts in this area.

However, if you are just passing through, why not take a moment to enjoy some of the landmarks that can be found around Emporia, including the Welcome sign which is made from flint sourced locally.

Other landmarks include the Clint Bowyer Community Building, donated by local racing legend Clint Bowyer to give residents a space to use for activities, talks, and more!

So whether you are driving through or making a stop, be sure to take a minute to admire what the city of Emporia has to offer. We look forward to showcasing more from our upcoming Kansas DLC with you; until then, keep on truckin'.
The Oklahoma DLC for American Truck Simulator arrived on Steam around two weeks ago, and since then, we've been busy sifting through a huge influx of input from all of you. Our developers have been working tirelessly to keep tabs on it across various platforms and we thought it was only right to give back some appreciation to our #BestCommunityEver by highlighting various experiences with the new map expansion.

Let's kick things off with a brief selection of pictures and videos, which have flooded our social media. Reading about your journeys through this state has been a real delight and as always, we're making sure to share the most captivating posts with everyone in-house. Remember to keep tagging us on X/Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok; we're committed to catching all the action!

We're also thrilled by the hundreds of positive reviews on Steam. We extend our gratitude to everyone who took the time to either tell us about their favorite aspects of the DLC or provided us with invaluable suggestions for improvement. Here are a few standout reviews we've enjoyed. If you're inclined to craft your own review, you're welcome to do so on the Oklahoma Steam Store Page.

We've also reached out to some of your beloved content creators, and they generously shared brief reviews about their experiences. We would like to thank all of them for sharing with us their opinions and allowing us to pass them along to our blog readers.


The new Oklahoma DLC for American Truck Simulator offers an immersive and authentic driving experience through the diverse landscapes of the state. From bustling cities to rural farmlands, the DLC provides a well-crafted depiction of Oklahoma's beauty. Being a former over-the-road truck driver in the United States before moving to Sweden, this helps me reminisce back to the days when I used to travel the I-40 Interstate through Oklahoma. The attention to detail in the road networks, landmarks, and scenery enhances the realism of the game. Whether you're a dedicated trucking enthusiast or simply looking for a refreshing addition to the game, the Oklahoma DLC is a solid choice.


Absolutely thrilled to have had the chance to experience the Oklahoma DLC for American Truck Simulator! As a truck lover, diving into the diverse landscapes and vibrant cities has been an absolute joy. The state's rich history and thriving industries, like bus factories and tire factories, make for an engaging trucking experience. The attention to detail in places like Gloss Mountain and Beavers Bend State Parks truly makes this DLC a trucker's dream. The peculiarity of this map, which surprised me and especially my community during the live broadcasts, is the presence of some particular roads that make the journey more intriguing and exciting. Can't wait to continue this exciting journey on the road!


In my opinion, Oklahoma is one of the most beautiful states in America, and I am very glad that our dear developers have finally added it to the game. The detail of all ten cities and landscapes is amazing. My viewers and I enjoyed spending time checking out new roads and cities, and we even found an interesting hidden road! The views in the expansion are really nice and you can look at them for ages! Everything looks very nice and the DLC is definitely worth your attention. Thank you, SCS Software for the new and great addition to the game. I am sure that it will be even better and better from now on!


Oklahoma is OK! (Get it? Eh? *Cricket noises*) Honestly, this state is simply a relaxing and unique one to drive through! I love when we get a new state like no other before because, during my live streams, everyone from the state always points out the realistic recreations of towns that are important to them and things you can only see in Oklahoma. From the truck stops to the Tulsa Airport and the School Bus Factory, you will find scenery and pickup locations that look like no other in the game. SCS did a great job of showing the wide open plains as well as the mountain parts of the southeast. It connects the bordering states with many more back roads than I ever expected! Thanks, SCS, for yet another wonderful addition to the ever-expanding American Truck Simulator!

Alongside the DLC launch, we launched the #CruisingOklahoma World of Trucks event and in just over two weeks, you've managed to surpass over 75% of the community goal of 111,000,000 miles (178,637,184 km). Really good going! No need to rush though; you still have until the 1st of October at 23:59 UTC to secure your personal rewards and help out with the community goal. More details are available in the dedicated blog post.

In conclusion, it's evident that we've been absolutely overwhelmed with feedback since the release. To tackle The Sooner State and make it as diverse as possible posed a challenge to our developers, and we're thrilled that the project has garnered much attention. A heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you!
Today we're happy to share with you not one, but two cities from Kansas, our in-development map expansion for American Truck Simulator! From local industries to landmarks, let's delve into what these areas can offer truck drivers.

Nestled in-between the High Plains, where the horizon stretches as far as the eye can see, is the city of Colby. Established in 1884, it has grown into a progressive agricultural community predominantly featuring farming industries. From farms, to machinery services to livestock auctions, there is no shortage of work for drivers looking for a job!

If the fields aren't for you, you'll also find a supermarket, car dealer and a new dynamic depot nearby; and whilst you're in town, why not take a moment to admire the sights! Near the city limits, you'll find the visitor centre, also known as the 'Grain Bin' thanks to its unique design which incorporates traditional Kansas limestone with a a real grain bin.

From there, you'll come across other prominent landmarks such as the Thomas County Courthouse, the First Presbyterian Church, the Pioneer Memorial Library and the Colby Mall. Be sure to explore a little when you do pass by, you'll never know what you might find!

Welcome to Hays, a city where history, education, and natural beauty can all be found! Located amidst the rolling plains of the Sunflower State, Hays invites you to explore its captivating blend of past and present.

Founded in 1867 as the southern branch of the Union Pacific Railroad, it has become a bustling city with a variety of local industries. On your visit in American Truck Simulator, you can find jobs to and from the battery factory, local city works, a dynamic parking depot, car and truck dealer, furniture and supermarket stores. On the outskirts of the city, you'll also find a Steel metal depot, Oil Service and a Livestock Farm.

If you happen to find yourself in Hays with some downtime, why not check out the local landmarks and attractions? Here you can find a Movie Theater with an accompanying art mural, statues of some of Hays' personalities, the Hays Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9076, the Hays Public Library and more.

No matter which city you choose to visit first, history and industries await you on the road! We hope you enjoyed this insight of what is to come with the Kansas DLC. If you like what you see, be sure to add it to your Steam Wishlist! Until next time, keep on truckin'.
A few weeks ago we released a blog post teasing new content for American Truck Simulator that we started working on during the development of two map expansions. We hope today’s map DLC announcement will get you excited just like the previous two, because officially we are... Introducing Nebraska for American Truck Simulator

Located in the heart of the Great Plains, Nebraska’s vast and diverse landscape consists of prairies, rolling hills, and the crucial Platte River. While hauling cargo through the Cornhusker State along historic routes, you will have many opportunities to witness iconic landmarks and truly immerse yourself in the state's spirit, from its pioneer history to the modern energy of cities full of ever-growing industries. Our goal is for the DLC to offer a fusion of peaceful landscapes and the rhythm of a buzzing economy that's unlike any other.

We already have a wide range of topics to cover on our blog in the future and we can’t wait to show them to you. For now, please keep in mind that while this article already includes plenty of screenshots, the project is still in a fairly early phase and everything is a work in progress.

If you want to show us how excited you are about this announcement, you can already add the DLC to your Steam Wishlist and feel proud that you were ready since "day one". To stay in touch with all the updates and news we also advise you to give our social media a follow (X/Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok), as that will ensure instant alerts about any new piece of information going public. We can’t wait to see you on the roads of Nebraska!
Today we are excited to share with you big news for American Truck Simulator. Our teams have been working hard to bring a HUGE addition to a legendary icon in the trucking industry....

Introducing the W900 Tuning Pack!

Kenworth's W900 design allows real-life truckers to customize their ride in many different and unique ways. We wanted to reflect this by bringing some of the most popular combinations to American Truck Simulator, as we know how important customising rigs is to our community. Turns out, there are A LOT of tuning options available for drivers of the W900, so our team decided to go big with this project.

As a symbol of individuality on the road, drivers have embraced the W900's potential for personalization, resulting in a vibrant market of aftermarket additions. A majority of the external and interior parts that are included in this pack have been inspired by these third party modifications, allowing us to bring a large variety of customisations to this iconic truck.

The W900 Tuning Pack features over 500+ individual tuning parts for both the interior and exterior of the truck, giving you a massive range of options to personalise your Kenworth W900 just the way you like it. This includes (but is not limited to) bumpers, cab door accessories, exhausts, filters, mirrors, fenders, mud flaps, exterior lights, grille, hood, roof window, chassis cover, side skirt, sunshield, deflectors, fuel tanks, headache racks, special turn light options, different headlights and headlight covers, air filters, trim options for windows, paintjobs, interior cab customisations and so so so much more; making it our biggest Tuning Pack to date!

We know how much our community loves to customise their rigs, so we've also made almost every exterior part paintable, giving you even more options! We really look forward to seeing how you get creative with this option; but that isn't all. To continue the celebration of 100 years of Kenworth, you'll also find a range of interior accessories such as toys, mugs, caps and more to have decorating your cabin.

Ever dreamt of creating and owning your own Show-worthy truck? Now you can with the option to add 'Show Truck' parts to your W900; such as rear fenders, front and rear bumpers and more! Along with these, you'll also find a variety of interior trims to match the exterior paint jobs, to help complete your rig's look. We look forward seeing you show these off to friends in convoy mode or at other virtual Truckfest events.

This massive undertaking doesn't go without credit to our teams behind the scenes who brought this all to life. From research, to modelling, to testing and everyone in-between, it really has been a labor of love and we are so happy to bring so many options to your garage.

We can't wait to see how you'll customise your Kenworth W900. Be sure to share your custom creations with us on our social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) and we'll feature our favourite ones!

We know you are used to blog posts about individual cities in upcoming map expansion projects arriving a bit later in the development process, but it’s good to freshen things up from time to time and try something else. So, without further ado, check out what you can expect from Dodge City in the upcoming Kansas DLC for American Truck Simulator.

Dodge City is a famous Wild West town that served as a frontier and gateway to many areas for a long time. As a result, it developed a thriving economy centered around cattle processing, which continues to this day and the local economy chain includes a food factory, livestock auction, and livestock farm. The city's Wild West history is also evident by the presence of the well-developed local railroad, which holds great significance in the city and the entire Kansas as well, connecting it to various depots.

At the heart of the city stands a historical railway station building that can be seen from all sides if you visit the nearby rail supply depot. The town's railroad and Wild West heritage are further commemorated in a Wild West museum that displays historical locomotive. Other depots in the area include a food mill, towering above a row of fast-food establishments, a grain elevator, a shopping mall, and outside of the city, there is a chemical plant and wind turbine construction (typical for the region).

Generally, our vision of Dodge City is divided into three main areas:

The northern "edge" along US-50 that bypasses downtown, with a more open feel, housing a shopping mall, baseball field, suburbs, and warehouses.

The downtown area in the center, with a preserved historical core and a more enclosed urban atmosphere - featuring the railway.

The southern industrial area, with depots connected to the railway, a hotel, a swimming pool, and a significant industrial presence.

We hope the city will provide for enough reasons to hang around and you will not Get out of Dodge. If you like what you’ve seen so far, make sure to add the map expansion to your Steam Wishlist, and to stay in touch with all the latest news, give our social media profiles a follow (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok).
We are happy to announce that the 1.48 update for American Truck Simulator has been released and is now available on Steam. This update contains bug fixes, changes and new content, which are featured below, so we recommend taking a read!

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated, provided their feedback, and made bug reports during the Open Beta period. Your valuable input helped us make tweaks, changes and squash some bugs we may have missed the first time around. We hope you can now begin to fully enjoy the fruits of your work.

New Texas DLC Content
They say everything is bigger in Texas, including the updates! Our talented team has revisited the state to bring an update that fits the boot; including roads, landmarks, depots, and more.

The equivalent of 500 real miles have been added over 8 different roads, interstates and highways; including one of the most well known interchanges in Texas. Nicknamed the 'High Five', it is one of the first five-level stack interchanges to be built in Dallas.

Keeping on the topic of five, in this update you'll be able to explore 5 new settlements. Make sure to take time to explore Greenville, Shamrock, Sharman, De Kalb and Paris.

Another big addition to this update is the addition of Texarkana; a unique city that straddles the border between Texas and Arkansas, with the state line running through the center of the city. We hope owners of the Texas DLC will enjoy this sizeable update. Read more about this update in one of our previous blog posts.

Cities in the Gallery
In the 1.46 update, we introduced the Gallery feature, a one stop shop for all your images, photo trophies, and discovered viewpoints, which maintained all the legacy functionality of the older Screenshot Manager. Today, we're excited to add a new functionality to the Gallery!

As you journey and discover the many cities of American Truck Simulator, you'll be able to collect them under the new 'Cities' tab. Once unlocked, you'll be able to view which cities you have visited, as well as watch and replay any of the city intro cutscenes; which are normally only seen when you first start your first HQ there.

We hope you enjoy this new addition to our Gallery! Let us know how many cities you've already unlocked in on our social media channels.

Washington DLC Custom City Intros
Carrying on from our previous update which introduced custom city intros for Utah & Idaho, we have now expanded these cutscenes in the Washington DLC for American Truck Simulator!

These special cutscenes appear when a player selects a starting city when creating a new profile. We hope that new players (or those restarting a new profile) will enjoy these new additions, showcasing the area where you have chosen to begin.

Originally, these starting cutscenes were quite basic in terms of their movement and functionality, however as time has gone on, we have improved on them with fly-by scripts and more. For most players, you would only see one of these cutscene for a particular city just once, and then continue on to many hours of trucking. This is why we've decided to bring the new function to the Gallery menu to replay them, and see the other City Intros which you may not have normally seen.

We hope you enjoy the work of our team who have brought these Cities to life through these intros, and we look forward to introducing it to more states in the future.

Special Transport DLC Update
In addition to the new content and changes that are coming to American Truck Simulator in this update, we are also happy to introduce two brand new special transport routes!

Are you ready to take on these new routes with oversized loads? You can find these unique delivery contracts between the cities of Laredo & San Antonio in Texas and Laurel & Billings in Montana.

Think you handle it? Share with us your pictures from your Special Transport hauls on our social media channels.

Reworked Vehicle Transport Trailers
Speaking of special transport - we are happy to let you know that our vehicle team has found some spare capacity in between other of their projects to also revisit and rework trailers that our in-game economy uses to transport various types of vehicles, such as cars, SUVs, etc.

Search for these cargoes within the freight market and take them for a ride! Your nearest car dealer might need delivery of fresh new whips.

Per-State map exploration
We know how many drivers enjoy the challenging task of gaining 100% map exploration. We know this isn't easy, so we've introduced a new UI window which can be accessed by clicking on your map exploration in the top left of the world map.

Upon clicking on this, a new window will open showing you a list of the U.S States with their respective flag, and a breakdown of your exploration of each one. We hope that this will aid you in finding those missing roads in our ever-growing world of American Truck Simulator.

Let us know how you're getting on with your map exploration in the comments below or on social media!

Options slider ranges
We are happy to introduce a highly requested addition to your options page when tweaking with settings in American Truck Simulator. You will now find a small box next to the sliders which displays the number which it is set to.

We hope this makes it easier for you to not only set up multiple profiles with similar settings, but also share your settings with others.

Input wizard controls selection redesign
We've given our input wizard for control selection a UI overhaul! Our team has been working hard to bring a simplistic but modern design to this setup window. We hope this new UI will help guide users new and old through the selection and setup process which features new icons and a clear description for each option.

Electronic Stability Controls (Anti-Lock Braking System + Traction Control)
You can now find the addition of Anti-Lock Braking System & Traction Control in the gameplay options. These Electronic Stability Controls help assist the driver in a variety of conditions and/or scenarios. The Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) loosens brakes on wheels that are close to locking out. Traction Control (ASR or TRC) helps prevent oversteer and understeer, as-well provide individual wheel anti-slip system applies brakes to wheels that are slipping.

Traction control also features cornering assist, which becomes active when understeer or oversteer, it brakes the inside rear wheels to prevent understeer and outside front wheel to prevent oversteer. We hope these new additions will be of use to you on your future journeys!

MOD structure changes
This change is more directed at our MOD creators in the community! We have now added the ability to create a single MOD for multiple DLCs, regardless of which DLC the user actually has.

If at least one of the subdirectories or files (*.zip) in the MOD root is named "base" or prefixed with "dlc_" then these subdirectories or files are mounted instead of the MOD root. We've also updated the SCS Workshop Uploader to reflect these changes as well. If the SCS Workshop Uploader discovers a MOD with the new structure, it performs additional checks.

We hope this new structure makes things a little easier for our talented modding community, and if you have any questions, feel free to head over to our modding wiki or forum where we can help support you.

In our upcoming Oklahoma DLC for American Truck Simulator, our team has recreated this city, along with many of its famous landmarks, buildings and industries.

However, it wouldn't be Oklahoma City without the inclusion of the tower Devon Energy Center skyscraper and also the iconic Skydance Bridge. You'll be sure to know where you are when you see these from your truck cab.

Our teams have worked hard to bring lots of new custom assets, unique industries and more to this area and we can't wait for you to see it for yourself.

While Oklahoma is missing national parks, the state is home to several state parks and recreation areas that showcase the local natural beauty. In the upcoming map expansion, you will have a chance to venture to two wonderful state parks, and in this blog article, we’ll tell you a little bit about them while throwing some amazing screenshots into the mix!

Located amidst the serene Ouachita Mountains, The Beavers Bend State Park is a nature lover's haven, enchanting all visitors with its beauty. With lush forests, pristine lakes, and twisting rivers, the park offers an idyllic sight for all truckers passing by. The park provides a perfect balance of serenity and adventure, as the provided viewpoint and nearby Electric Substation Depot will certainly make you stay around a bit longer.

Found in the heart of northwest Oklahoma, Gloss Mountain State Park stands as a testament to the state's remarkable geological wonders. Named after the sparkling selenite crystals that adorn its rugged landscape, the park beckons curious truckers with its unique charm. With its striking landscapes and unique viewpoint, Gloss Mountain State Park offers an unforgettable journey into the heart of Oklahoma's natural heritage.

Which state park will you set out to first in Oklahoma DLC? Let us know! Also, make sure to add the map expansion to your Steam Wishlist and visit our social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok), which will always keep you up to date with all the latest news if you give them a follow.
