SCS Software have confirmed the next major new DLC to hit American Truck Simulator will be a brand new map of the New Mexico region. Adding a bit of flavour and colour to American Truck Simulator, New Mexico will be the focus of attention as the team look to release their first map expansion DLC since the recent update to the game that increased the map scale from **** to *** . That update, released at no additional cost, was a major improvement to the title as SCS strive to better reflect the vast nature of the American landscape featured in ATS. The state of New Mexico is already well under construction at SCS and the several screenshots recently revealed by the studio do a good job of showing off the usual attention to detail produced by the Czech team. With such a varied and diverse nature of the American landscape that features in ATS, New Mexico should make an interesting change of pace both experienced and rookie truckers alike. Already we have seen some interesting new rest stop locations lined with regional stone and very much representing the mental image one may have of the state, plus I've already spotted some pretty unique pieces of roadside furniture... such as a rocket!?! During the reveal post by SCS, the studio have confirmed they are looking to expand their development team in order to meet customer demand for new content and features across both American Truck Sim and European Truck Simulator 2. The team have already grown from the initial five man setup right at the start of the development of ETS 2 to now reaching over 20 people working solely on the development of American Truck Sim. With a diehard following for both games and recent recipients of two Steam Awards, the team confirm they have a vision to at least double their production bandwidth for both ATS and ETS2 in the near future. Looks like exciting times ahead for SCS Software and fans of these addictive trucking games. Sadly SCS fell short of announcing any further details with regards to the upcoming DLC offering, so we are yet to know exactly what will be included in the pack or indeed when we can expect it to be made available in the sim. Keep an eye out at RaceDepartment in the coming weeks as we share more information as and when it becomes available. American Truck Simulator and European Truck Simulator 2 are both available to purchase for Windows PC exclusively on the Steam Network. Additional DLC for both titles can be purchased via the Steam Store. At RaceDepartment we have dedicated sub forums for both American Truck Simulator and European Truck Simulator 2. Here you can find a wide selection of mods for the game, from new skins, trucks and even maps.
