SCS Software have deployed a new vehicle to their American Truck Simulator title, adding the rather epic looking Peterbilt 389 as a free addition to the expanding American themed trucking simulation. With development progressing rapidly on the map expansion for American Truck Simulator, SCS have taken the opportunity to release an early Christmas present to players of the game. Bringing the all American classic lines of the Peterbilt 389 into ATS, the studio have developed the new truck with the use of reference photos, scans, and sound recordings taken from the studio's recent trip to the PACCAR Technical Center earlier this year. Although the free truck update has been made available for players of the game right away, the studio are keen to remind gamers that the below video preview does contain features and content that will not be available to the public until after the next build update. Configuring Peterbilt 389 Video Trailer "Peterbilt 389 is a successor to Peterbilt 379, manufactured until 2007. Peterbilt 379 in turn replaced the iconic 359 in 1987. Peterbilt 359 one was first wide nosed big rig for Peterbilt, produced since 1967, and achieved extreme popularity. This tradition is still very much alive - while new trucks in the 3x9 line have introduced major technical improvements under the hood and greatly enhanced performance, truckers' aesthetic preferences have not changed as much. It's outward appearance is still mostly the same after almost five decades on the road! An interesting little fact about the new 389 is that it has the longest nose of all Peterbilt trucks ever. It is 131 inches (332,74 cm) long! One hell of a nose if you ask me! But surely an experienced truck driver will not have any problems manoeuvring the vehicle through the challenges waiting for you in American Truck Simulator!" American Truck Simulator is available to purchase via the Steam network right now. The upcoming map expansion for the title is currently in development and should be released, at no additional cost, in the very near future.
