Having been steadily teased by SCS Software over the last few months, the much anticipated Washington State DLC map expansion for American Truck Simulator is now available to purchase via the ATS Steam Store.
Containing over 3,800 miles of new road network within the Washington State region of the virtual recreation of America, the new DLC is packed with new and challenging driving experiences for players to enjoy. Adding 16 new cities to the game (Vancouver, Longview, Aberdeen, Olympia, Tacoma, Seattle, Everett, Port Angeles, Bellingham, Omak, Wenatchee, Yakima, Kennewick, Grand Coulee, Spokane, Colville), the new expansion drifts between open highway, densely packed city environments and off road sections to give players a nice change of pace from the more established environments traditionally found within American Truck Simulator.
As well as the new locations, the latest DLC in the seemingly constantly expanding game world also adds additional realism with the inclusion of dynamic speed limits and LED signs, a selection of landmark bridges that make up much of the landscape around the Washington State area and of course Washington's iconic Mount St. Helens and Mt. Rainier, amongst many other small and immersive details that SCS Software have become renowned for with their ATS and European Truck Sim 2 games.
As well as the new map expansion, something we've covered at length in recent weeks at RaceDepartment, SCS Software have also dropped another small bonus with the release of the 'Forest Machinery' DLC for the game.
Towed Forest Machinery:
- Log Harvester
- Log Loader
- Log Stacker
- Tub Grinder
- Knuckleboom Loader
- Headache Racks (2 versions for each cabin type)
- Hanging Chainsaw toy
As both the trailer pack and Washington State expansion have released at the same time, and to a certain degree interact with each other in the virtual game world created by SCS Software, the developers have put together a bundle purchasing deal - combining the base ATS game, the previously released Oregon DLC and the two new packs at a reduced £16.10 - a saving of over 50% if purchasing all packs and game as separate items. Check out the 'West Coast Bundle' HERE.
American Truck Simulator is available to purchase now on Steam.
