American Truck Simulator Texas Launched, Oklahoma Announced

The SCS Software Blog announces the launch of the new Texas DLC for American Truck Simulator is now available for Windows, macOS, and Linux on Steam. This will give drivers the chance to see how sweet the waving wheat smells deep in the heart of the Lone Star State. This post on Steam discusses the release, providing a Texas DLC Video Trailer and an updated map showing how this connects to DLC covering the entire west coast. Speaking of which, the Steam Listing for American Truck Simulator - Oklahoma is now online, revealing the game's next frontier. Here's more on the new Texas DLC:
Howdy, partners! Hope y'all will like your visit in the Lone Star State, Texas. This place ain't full of cowboys anymore but the spirit lives on, especially in ranches you can find all 'round. We also got a lot of cattle and other livestock so your truckin' adventures will be lively.

We also love music. Like, really love music. Just look at Austin, the live music capital of the world. Party on. Look plumb over yonder and you'll see the city which got the message about the problem. Sure'nuff, we're talking about Houston. So enjoy the drive.

If they keep up the pattern, Kansas will be next, which should be their quickest DLC of all - the terrain will only require one polygon!

That how you know you aren't in Kansas anymore....when the polygons increase.

Yup. Snowrunner is where it's at for the time-being .Thankfully there is a ton of that game to explore and play through, it's year1, 2, (and now 3) year pass DLCs are pretty huge.

I really wish they would put more effort into the physics engine, and the simulation aspect of the game. As it is, it's basically trucking on rails, and enjoying virtual scenery. I'm currently once again playing Snowrunner. I've got nearly 200 hours into the game, and I can't see myself quitting anytime soon. It's due to the lovely (albeit sometimes wonky) physics engine that differentiates between every single truck there is in the game, traction on different surfaces with different tyres, suspension, torque, momentum etc. etc. etc.. It's not close to 100% realistic, but at least all of it is there.

I agree. I used to play a lot of Euro/American Truck Simulator but my gaming time nowadays is extremely limited and, as much as I still love these games, I'd rather play something different than something that is basically a walking simulator in a truck (since it's only a driving simulator in its simplest form - the physics is just not good).

A better physics simulations would be great and actual competitors! There are other trucks driving around but I don't think there are other companies. Anyone remember King of the road? Man that was a really cool game for its time. I mean it was even less realistic than ETS/ATS but you had competitors, you had to race against the other trucks. That was really cool.
Now we donce.

Will it come with a "the power is out for the entire state" mode where you have to drive to Mexico in the dark and get the Senator on vacation?

I don't know that's sorta why I asked. Ya know that thing where ya don't know something and try to find out. Didn't know if they might have added more types of trucks, stuff for your buisness, trailers etc.

They do occasionally add trucks but add trailers more frequently.

So besides interstates and a few biomes do these really add that much more to the game?
It's a map expansion for a game about trucking, on interstates, in the United States... what more do you really expect it to add to the game? Like the genre or not, I don't think SCS has ever been less than forthright in what they offer.

If the game is realistic, this expansion will add a lot more really shitty AI cars to the game. /s
