American Truck Simulator is constant its quest to digitally map America’s highways, one state at a time. But earlier than even bringing the good state of Idaho to completion, SCS Software have already introduced their subsequent addition to the expansive digital truck-a-thon. Get in gear, truckers, we’re heading to Colorado. Land of the timber, residence of the blazed, American Truck Simulator – Colorado‘s icy peaks and dusty valleys can be open for trucking by the tip of the yr.
Did you guess the place they had been in this month’s teaser trailer, then? Spoilers, clearly, until you learn the headline of this piece or the paragraph above.
Colorado, as SCS Software’s announcement post kindly informs me, is the highest-altitude state within the US and was named from the Spanish for “coloured red”.

It was additionally the primary state within the Union to legalise medicinal and leisure marijuana, however I’m uh, unsure that’s fairly as related to trucking. Listen, buddy, I’m unsure getting lit behind the controls of an eighteen-wheeler is one of the best concept, however you do you.
American Truck Simulator – Colorado is presently being developed in parallel with the game’s upcoming Idaho DLC. It’ll park on Steam a couple of months later, someday in the direction of the tip of the yr. Granted, given the entire of every thing happening proper now, these timeframes aren’t cemented.
Resident trucker Alice O normally ends these with hypothesis on the subsequent (hopefully damp) state they need to add. I feel I’d go for Florida – for one, it’s the one State I’ve visited, nevertheless it’s additionally moist, bizarre, and opens up a world of alligator transportation choices. Snap it up, then.
