This comes along with the chance to take the game on a test drive with a free weekend that runs between now and Monday. Here's a trailer along with word on how this can help you become a mean mother trucker:
FREE BEE
Getting into Utah soon will get players a nice little gift too - a Bee cabin toy to accompany them on their travels! We'll publish the "how to get the bee" guide shortly, but we're going to leave a few days to those curious souls willing to find a way to get the Bee by themselves!

Still no weather events and no roadside events.... I love these kind of games, but I just want more depth in the simulation. Beyond the derpy AI cars.

What are you talking about exactly? There are random roadside events, like crashes, traffic stops, construction, lane closures, and the road closures that make you find a detour.

Weather events? There's a slider to adjust the chance of bad weather. It's only rain and thunderstorms though. If you're talking about seasons, then yeah, I agree. But how would it be done? Would the seasons go on in-game time or based on real world seasons?

Wow, truck driving and Utah! If they add in some ‘Tax Time receipt based deductions’ DLC, this game will be unstoppable...

In 2017, they did a roadside event that tied to a real-life event. Operation Big-Sur was based on the landslide that closed Highway 1, and the road would remain close in-game until it was reopened in the real world.

Microsoft needs to take their maps data an do to this genre what they are doing to flight sims. I feel like ATS spends all of their time on building out map DLCs and can't be bothered to add any meaningful flavor or mechanics.

Exactly. This an ETS2 are good in small doses but they'd be great if they had actual seasons and corresponding weather. I know there are some mods but I'd like to see that professional done. Driving around Europe in Fall and Winter? Nice.
