American Truck Simulator 1.28 Open Beta

blog_ats_1_28_open_beta.jpg


Open Beta test for the latest update of American Truck Simulator is here!
(Euro Truck Simulator 2 may still need a few more days, as we are fighting with a small but particularly hard to catch bug there.)

You may wonder about the game version number suddenly jumping to 1.28, as at the moment it was sitting at ver. 1.6. We have decided to unify versioning of ETS2 and ATS to simplify communication about game updates both internally and externally. The version number used to denote that ETS2 has been through 27 major updates, while ATS has been through 6 big revisions since the respective game's release. But we realized that this is not a crucial piece of information. It is more relevant and more important to provide the information that the updates, even if they appear at slightly different times, are based off the same core functionality upgrade; that the progress is in sync on both games. That's why we decided to only continue the numbering scheme established originally with the older Euro Truck Simulator 2 game, and stick to it even with American Truck. This way it will be clearer if and when both games reach a particular development milestone.

As usual, this update is full of great features for you to try out. Doubles are the main feature of this particular update which is great on its own. But since there are different regulations in Nevada, we decided to add something special for our fans. Please welcome triples and Rocky Mountain doubles which are part of ATS Nevada economy now!

As we are putting finishing touches on the New Mexico DLC for American Truck Simulator, we also need to finalize all the various marketing and promo material, so that we are ready for the release day. One of the key elements is the promotional video trailer. We have been working on it for several days already, and today we are finally happy with the result. We decided that we should not sit on it until the launch date. Instead, we want to show it to our game's fans now, ahead of the release, to whet your appetite. ;)

American Truck Simulator Update 1.29 Open Beta

We are happy to announce that the 1.29 Update Open Beta for American Truck Simulator is out. Actually, the first build was released on Friday already, we have kind of soft-launched it before the weekend.
There are a lot of changes under the hood in this new game version, there may have been new instabilities introduced. So we thought that we should only expose a limited number of players to the very first iteration of the beta progress, see the reaction, and only then decide if we should start talking aloud about it. Well, the initial reaction was reasonably positive, so here we go!

Something (else) is cooking!

After our last "chef’s" post and all the wild guesses, we thought you deserve another look under the lid. Moreover, we can't resist the urge to show you a couple of pictures from another new region!

We are making American Truck Simulator Update 1.31 accessible in Open Beta form today. We are starting a little rough this time, with several known issues, but at the same time, we are eager to collect feedback and reports already to help us finalize this update ASAP. Open Beta 1.31 for ETS2 should follow in a matter of a few days.

Oregon: Scenic road 101

US Route 101 will continue further north from California (part of core American Truck Simulator game) up through the new Oregon map expansion. When the new DLC is complete, the road will start in Los Angeles and end in Astoria. For now, at least - you will have to wait until we release Washington state DLC for the full length of US 101 ;). The section depicted on screenshots below covers the area between Eureka and Crescent City.

Oregon: Truck Stops

Recently, we've shown you places you can see on your drives across the ATS Oregon DLC. Today we will bring you a visual appetizer of the places where you can stop, refuel your truck, relax for a while, or stay overnight before continuing your long journey. There are some quite notorious truck stops in development...

SCS Software ha rilasciato un doppio aggiornamento per i suoi ottimi American Truck Simulator ed Euro Truck Simulator 2. L'update porta i due titoli alla versione 1.31, con varie migliorie ed aggiornamenti, comodamente spiegati nel trailer qui di seguito.

ATS and ETS2 Update 1.31 Out Now!

We are happy to give you official new updates for both our flagship truck sims, at last. Testing of this update wave took us longer than we had hoped, both internal tests and the open beta revealed a lot of areas requiring our attention before we could call the update done. There's quite a lot of new content and functionality for both games there, and we have run into some unexpected problems when things refused to work together.

Thumbs up to everyone who participated in the beta (for both of our games) and sent us his opinion and reported any issues. We would like to express our sincere thanks for all your help, bug reports, and general feedback, they were even more important and helpful than usual. After over a month full of testing, bug fixing, (and sometimes yelling and panicking), we're finally there. Update 1.31 is out for both of our games!

You can find the long and dry list of changes and additions below, but for those of you preferring moving pictures to written words, here is a very nice overview of the major changes in the 1.31 update courtesy of Squirrel's YouTube channel:
