American Truck Simulator Bonus

American Truck Simulator will be released simultaneously in retail and digital channels on February 3, 2016. But that's not "news" any more - hopefully you have the date marked in your calendar already! ;-)

To make as big a splash as possible during the release week - to place high in the best-selling chart and to make an impression on games industry press this way - we would like to create a sales spike just after the game starts selling. We will depend on our fan community to achieve this; when we were thinking on how to catalyze things, we came up with an idea of a little bribe bonus.

Here is the deal: Go to the American Truck Simulator Steam page and choose "Follow" to make sure you get all the important announcements through Steam's Friend Activity feed during the period leading to the game's release.


By getting as many people into our dragnet as possible, we hope for a bit of snowball effect in raising the awareness of the game's impending release - not just among the hard-core fans, but also in general gamer population.

In exchange for the "follow," we are ready to give you an exclusive gift: a set of unique Steampunk-themed truck paintjobs. It's perfectly OK if you buy the game in a retail box or any alternate digital channel - so long as you follow the game's official Steam community announcements and activate your game on Steam during the week after its release, you are eligible for this bonus.

Here is a couple images to whet your appetite:

    1. How can you even compare this amazing simulator with that piece of crap. 1C is the company behind Rig n crap.. Oh I mean roll.. Even 18 WOS series was LIGHTYEARS ahead of Rig n crap :)

      Delete
    2. Nah Rig and Roll was a great game, with good graphics.
      And since the 18 WoS discontinued, they get straight into the gap...
      If the studio that made Rig and Roll was st'ill alive, SCS would have work much harder than this.

    3. you forget 1C created the truck sim Genre with Hard Truck and Hard Truck 2

    5. "If the studio that made Rig and Roll was st'ill alive,"
      They are alive. just they had conflict with 1C and can't work more over this project. 1C got quick money after game release and all.

    6. Ok.. I can admit I was a bit wrong. I forgot about hard truck, yes :) Yes the graphics was good but DOF was terrible! But it´s not allways about the graphics.

      SCS climbed to the top of the ladder with ETS 2 and they deserve the throne now.

    7. I remember well Rig'n'roll, i liked 2 things at that game: interactivity with AI (remember, the game was based on a story) and nr.2, collision graphics, something that SCS could learn from, really loved how the trucks were gradually showing damage while you were hitting a curb or another AI vehicle until your truck was roo damaged to be able to run; of course, other things like crashes, super long loading times, glitches regarding interaction with that story's AI, pretty poor truck handling dynamics, are things that definitely put this game behind SCS trucking sims

      Now you definitely promise that LZV arrive in this new game.

    7. Henk, where the hell have you seen a such thing ? Plus this is the wrong comment. they where speaking about the price

      Delete
    8. If is this real price,then is much to much for just of one small part of USA !!!

      SCS goes now just in direction how to collect more money and that is not good.... with ETS2 we did not get whole EU in game. We pay it €20 ... on start, after that they took money for another 2 DLC ...and 3th is on the way ....

      With ETS2 they "learn" that they can make much, much more money on that .... they started just with one part of USA and they will charge so much ? ... lol to much !!

      Delete
    9. You where an alpha tester right ? So you can confirm that the map is indeed quite small ?

      Delete
    10. I'll wait until I get it decide if price is fair. I'd much rather pay more for good content than pay less for something that was rushed to cram more map in less time due to not having the revenue to do it right. I expect ATS to be much more detailed, and if it is, bring on the base game and the following DLCs. I'll gladly open my wallet.

      If it's crap, I won't spend any more money on it. Pretty simple, but expect to get what I pay for, basically - detailed content that takes some time to take in and explore.

    12. @MsHeavyAlex map, you must have in mind that ets2 was also the same as ATS. ETS2 is using the maps from both UKTS and GTS (or AuTS after the 1.32 update of the game). So they aren´t really making any other differences than ETS2 was when it was released

      Delete
    13. Well, I will buy this game when it is released whether it's cheap or expensive. For surporting SCS!(of course, no one want a high price, neither do I)

  4. The paintjobs look neat, and I'll surely help you folks with this - every little bit counts after all.

    But frankly, when you said "exciting topics to discuss" in your Christmas blog entry, I was hoping you'd shed light on one of the upcoming major feature updates of your games instead of unraveling another paintjob. Or discuss one of your upcoming DLCs, like Rigid Trucks.

    In any way, I hope we'll receive new information on those soon. I wish you a very happy and successful new year!

  13. Really looking forward to this SCS. Hoping for Oculus support ☺

  14. What the hell is that SCS ? Come on, seriously, press attention ?!
    That's bullshit, you don't need it ! Look at ETS2 ! Only the fan base manage to boost the sells way high up tan what you was expecting !
    This "Follow us and get a bonus" is wrong I think, the game is all ready going to break the records for your company.
    Or is it ? The map you shown in your alpha footage was ridiculously small compared to ETS2 base map. I think it's time to get a little update about the size of the game !
    I sincerely hope you aren't scamming us...

    1. The game will start only with California state, later through dlc and updates they will add other states as well.

    2. I known, but I don't know, I'm almost sure a lot of people will complain about the size of the map, and the ratio what-you-get/price of the game.
      Only California ? 3 trucks manufacturer ? It just seems, they want us to buy as much as DLCs as we can.
      I'm even more afraid since they spoke about the Michelin branding coming in DLC for ETS2...

    3. So, we have more and more smart people here ! ... nice to hear that, somebody knows that they want make fast money on players ;) ... for me personal is that big shame .

    4. Yeah, I deeply analize each single news that come from their awful marketing strategy.
      It made a click when they announced that the Interior object will be a DLC... Less updates, more DLCs

      Delete
    5. Well, I'm not happy with that too, but what can we do about it? They released a gameplay video of ATS a year ago, and yeah the map looked extremly small, but a lot have happened with ATS since then, and of course so many things we don't know yet, we'll see them when the game will come out. I'm happy if they plan to make the game scale much much bigger than ETS 2. For example if California alone will be as big as 60% of ETS 2 map, and they will expand it with updates and DLCs more often than ETS 2.Maybe they plan to expand the company as well, because at the moment SCS is very small, and meanwhile working on ATS, ETS2, Euro Coach Simulator and Paint Jobs, etc with only 50 people is very hard. As for the trucks they already said it, they won't put trucks with fake brands anymore in their games, they will wait until they have a official license for X brand. This time they will take things more seriously! That's great I think and btw from what I saw from Squirrel (Youtube User) videos "Inside SCS - Part 1,2,3 & 4" I really liked the ATS map, it was awesome!

      Delete
    6. Speaking of squirrel's videos. On the Inside SCS Software - Part 3 - American Truck Simulator (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clnxjTuaIDI) In 12:15 there is a plaque on the road with the inscription: WELCOME TO NEVADA. And then we can whiz around Las Vegas. How is it possible that Nevada is not over yet? Squirrel's video was made a year ago. I'm starting to really think that you want to squeeze money out of us.

    7. SCS has already said Nevada will be a free down load and will be coming soon after the realise date of ATS

  27. I have a question too, and I mean for real>
    When will you hire more programmers to make a second team , to could work independently at 2 projects? And when will you make better models for trucks , trailers and all other prefabs? (Comparing RTA models with yours, just makes me cry, or LOL :)) ) When you will scan trucks 3D with laser, or when will you buy rich detailed 3D model of your licensed trucks with just 200-400 eur, and then make the model in 3DMAx or Maya as RTA does, faster and better ?
    When will you update the quality of graphics in ETS2 ? In 4-6 years when you will come out with DX11 or ...MAYBE 12, these will be OBSOLETE ancient technology. YOU have in your hands a very promising game, and you make nothing to enrich it with "reality".
    NO realistic economy at all, no multipoint deliveries, lot of money that you coudn't spend (just on trucks)...trailers poor detailed that you coudn't buy, garages that you couldn't upgrade with objecs, NO aquired trucks on the road, or even in the garages, not to say about seasons, lowering the window to hear environement sounds, see hands on the wheel, or getting off the truck. The traffic moves just on the roads, and in fuel stations, in any other location is freezed(companies, service stations, hotels, truck dealers). Your drivers make always Their location- City A-City A-Their location routes. Very few accidents and overtaking coming from your front. Still inexistent independent trafficlights behaviour among different countries. Reduced city area (just 5-6 streets on there you have acces). No foglights, no cabin illumination. Still important countries like Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Finland are missing, and France, Italy, Norway, Sweden, just half populated, still ALL OTHER initial cities very unreal designed in matter of street joints, traffic signs. Inexistent One-Way streets... And there are many more... The game is full of NO, NO, and NOOO....
    And with the latest beta, the CABIN BOUNCE AGAIN like hell....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. There have been people complaining about those exact things since the first day of this game...And,has anything changed?No...I have said this before,no matter how much things SCS adds into the game,there will always be some people that want more or aren't happy with it.I think it's time to stop complaining,if SCS doesn't listen anyways...Just enjoy the game as it is,use mods and don't wait for SCS.You are just filling this comment section with negativity.Just be thankful that they still update the game,other companies would have given up long ago with so much hate and complains...

      Delete
    3. I wish SCS stopped supporting ETS2. This would mean ETS3 and that is equal to huge changes.

      Delete
    4. Yes,porting this game to a newer engine would take a lot of time so I think it's not an otpion.They should build ETS3 from the ground up with a new engine that allows them to implement all the things that Hye Xenforo MacedoniaNS has mentioned,it's quite hard with the current one...

    6. Adrian you are right. It would take a lot of time, but they have made a Europe map, so they don't have to do it again. It seems to me that it is high time to start thinking about it. The game is getting older. Competition also definitely not asleep. Time to go forward. The world is not standing still. It seems to me that SCS forgotten about it.

      Delete
    7. They shouldn't make trucks as detailed as RTA's, because then it'll lag the fuck out of most peoples games. If you really want something, make it you're self. If you reply "Oh, I don't know how" or some stupid crap like that, then shut the up and don't complain and be happy there is even a truck sim out there.

  31. SCS could finally show us the ATS map. We know about California, Nevada, Arizona and we have already seen some screenshots from Oregon and Utah. It is known, that California is in the base game, Arizona is the first DLC, so it is clear that Nevada is going to be free update released probably soon after the release. But if SCS want to give us regular new content, not only once a year, they had to (or i hope they have already started) start working on more neighboring states (Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico). I really do not want to find that i was wrong and they have only five states.

    P.S I really do not think we will be able to drive to New York in 2020. But maybe trip to Chicago could be possible.

    5. " I really do not think we will be able to drive to New York in 2020. But maybe trip to Chicago could be possible."
      I can't agree more. Yes, the speed SCS build stuff is really really slow, they spent 8 months to build the MP4 truck and almost a year(?) to build Scandinavia map. Now ATS has much more detailed maps, how can they build more state maps and even go north to Canada and south to Brazil? I don't think SCS can finish the USA map before 2020 with such speed,too. But there's a chance, After ATS be released, maybe SCS will have some money to expand the team....I don't know what they're planning but It is high time to hire more people now.SCS, guys ~~~come on~~~~~~~

      Delete
    6. And I can't imagine 4 years later, the world developed a lot and I'm still playing a game from the year of 2016.....It must be sorrow too for SCS to work on a game for such a long time and have no new game like ETS3 or something like that.
      any way, more fans, more buyers, more money, more workers, more game contents ans faster speed.I know...........

  43. It's hilarious to see what some people complain about or what they want to see in this game...
    Sure some of those points are true and should be added or improved.
    But all those things like walking around, damage, way better graphics and so on. Who the hell needs that and why is it absolutely necessary in a good DRIVING or much more TRUCKING sim?
    Graphics are pretty ok imo and damage just isn't possible if you want to have licensed trucks! Walking around? Not really needed.
    Hands on the wheel: They are annoying (apart from racing sims
    MP? Will be added someday.
    Bigger map? On the way.
    More trucks? On the way.
    Better AI: I agree
    Physics improvements: A few little here and there would be nice.
    Trailers to own: YES
    See employees in traffic: I also agree
    Seasons: Only as tickable option. And as secondary or lower objective for SCS
    CB radio: Yes

    Really ridiculous other things some people want, e.g. "killing people, lot lizards, the ability to add music" (as if that was sth. new) and similar even less useful things should just be ignored by all of us...

    ETS2 must have been a terrible experience for some of you! At least you sound like that. And if so, you're a very little minority...

    1. You're one of the few people in the the comment sections of these blogs that isn't severely retarded. I agree with you on pretty much everything.

      How much of a life does one lack if they're not totally immersed unless they have a truck driving simulator where they can get out of the truck and walk into a public restroom and take a big fat shit and then have lame hands on the steering wheel? I don't mind hands on the wheel when I'm playing The Crew or Arma 3, but in a truck simulator it's just corny as hell. So is getting out of the truck. Yes I know, you can do that in Farming Simulator but it's just as dumb in that game as any other. You wanna get out of the vehicle? Play GTA.

      I can take or leave the graphics. Nothing wrong with wanting a simulator to look nice, but people don't need to act like the game was made in 1999. Like I said before the only thing I had that I could call a decent truck simulator is now 10 years old (18 Wheels of Steel Haulin'). ETS2 still looks amazing to me, and so does ATS even if it's on the same level graphically. I can't complain.

      I guess it comes down to the fact that you can't please everyone, but really how many of them are worth pleasing?

      The only thing I want SCS to do at this point is not charge a stupid amount of money for stuff that they had plenty of time to make for the initial release but didn't. Meaning additional trucks or states. Oh and quit coming up with dumb ideas like calling steampunk paintjobs a "bonus". I have to wonder what the point is of asking everyone to buy ATS right away if they've been so impatient that they're going to do it without being asked anyway.

    2. CB Radio would be awesome. It would add a lot to immersion. Theres a CB Radio mod for ETS 2 I found but its only a looped CB radio chatter thats a minute and a half long. I got fedup of it real fast.

  45. I cannot believe people are complaining. You all have NO idea what it takes to make a game like this. SCS pours their hearts into these titles, and they're NOT trying to suck money out of us. You say you want a bigger map? Me too, but uh... MODDING. Have you never played the TSM or ProMods maps? They're HUGE, nearly tripling the ETS 2 map size. So calm down people. You want more trucks? Me too, bug again... MODDING. I ONLY play with modded American trucks in ETS 2. I haven't driven a European truck in almost 2 years. Your complaints are utterly meaningless. Thank you SCS for your fantastic work!!! Ignore the trolls in the comments section.

    2. I don't understand sometimes people, really. There is a lot of comments about being grateful etc. You could be grateful to your mom that she born you, your father that he raised you etc. But being grateful that you have bought something from someone? I've never heard about it. When you buy a new car, do you write to the manufacturer and thanks him for the wonderful car? I heard about opposite situation. When I buy new car on the manual on the first page, manufacturer of the car is grateful to me that I have bought his car... On what world do you live? People, we are the customers and we buy a product. Have your dignity.

      They didn't just rename the game American Truck Simulator. They had to build a whole new map and trucks for this game. If they were to start from scratch it would have taken a year or two longer which would give you something else to complain about.

    4. dude i know what thy did of course thy going to make a whole new map and truck and trailers but still is ETS2 the Engine was made specifically for ETS2 cabover trucks no matter what if you want to think otherwise that's on you

      Delete
    5. they are makers of their own game engine so they can make it to be made for any game that they please. Game engine is not a hammer, it is a complex set of tools.

      Take battlefield 4 for example. It runs on same engine(Frostbite) that battlefield bad company 1 but by time they were polishing it, fixing bugs and when the time came, they just threw more detail in because machines have become stronger.

    8. @ anonymous man : They can change the physics of the game to suit american trucks. They changed some things in the game engine so this can be done in a recent update. So just because the game engine was originally for ETS 2 doesn't mean they didn't change things to acomidate ATS truck style. But of course all you came here to do is complain.

      Delete
    11. Pavel said no such thing. They posted in a blog not long ago that they changed the way the engine works in such a way that it works with american style trucks and cab overs.

      Delete
    12. Why shouldn't they have the same engine? ETS2 was obviously successful and is a great game engine compared to what it used to be 10 years ago, or even 6 years ago. They're not taking a shortcut; it would be a waste of time to make unnecessary changes to an already well-functioning game engine for something that was meant to parallel ETS2 to begin with. But you probably haven't been stuck with playing 18 Wheels of Steel for the past several years so you don't care.

    1. Sounds like an installation problem. You can try right clicking the game in your library pay then click properties then look for a "verify game cache integrity" option and try that. Otherwise you might try deleting and downloading it again

      Delete
    2. You are right and maybe it is a misguided idea but let's hope that in the future it will have a purpose in creating multiplayer. SCS has done a great job in everything they did this far, growing a niche genre in something that has an impact on today's market. So let's have faith that those WOT contracts are not for nothing... :)

      Delete
    3. Me too, I am not really interested by using this new feature for now, as I am focusing 100% of my playing time on multiplayer.

      But I think as Bogdan said that it's a start point in creating connections from an official server until ETS2 users and that is exactly what I am waiting from SCS. So, I don't mind and accept this feature wich is actually not made for me as everything new and able to catch new ETS2 users will get money that SCS can invest on another features wich might interest to me.

  73. You Can Own the REAL Optimus Prime Truck

    Here’s your chance to become the ultimate hero of pretty much every kid on the planet, and we’d wager a few bigger kids as well.

    You can actually own Optimus Prime!

    To be more accurate, you can own the truck that was used for Prime’s vehicle mode during filming of the first three Transformers movies.

    The truck, a modified 1992 Peterbilt 379, is being auctioned off alongside a classic Camaro that starred as the vehicle mode of Bumblebee in the most recent Transformers movie. The vehicles will go up for auction on behalf of Paramount Pictures at the Barrett-Jackson event taking place from January 23-31 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

    In addition to its instantly recognizable paint job, the truck includes a custom front bumper, blacked-out windows, various blue lights and the famous Autobots logo mounted to the grille. Apparently, director Michael Bay was so impressed with the design of the truck and its huge size that he picked it for the movie, even though he knew he’d receive some flak for not going with a cab-forward design as seen in the original comics.

    “I’m confident that Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will be a huge hit in Scottsdale,” Barrett-Jackson boss Steve Davis said in a statement. “These vehicles are part of a celebrated global phenomenon and have cemented their place in the hearts of fans who watched them in action on the big screen—the two heroes will be an exciting part of any collection for movie fans and car enthusiasts alike.”

    According to the auction house, the truck is a fully functioning vehicle with a proper VIN and an original title in Paramount Pictures’ name. However, it’s officially a stunt vehicle and currently not street legal. It also may not be emissions compliant in all 50 states.

    We’re told both the truck and Camaro are being sold without reserve.
