Official Launch Trailer for American Truck Simulator

We are all living in the world of video, and American Truck Simulator is not an exception for sure. Behold our take at an emotional game launch trailer!


You can expect a ton of fan footage from American Truck Simulator on the Internet in no time after the release of course to help you decide if the game is worth buying. Actually videos and streams will start appearing as of this weekend already - we have begun providing press keys to games media (here is our presskit link). Between the official games industry media coverage and the fan-created stuff, there should be many previews, reviews and honest opinions available to you by mid next week. Here is one already on Rock Paper Shotgun.

Quite a lot of famous Internet personalities on YouTube and twitch scene are also getting press keys from us, so we will see what happens. We are definitely looking forward to learning what the old-guard guys think about our game - the people who have been coming back to Euro Truck Simulator 2 for years, like Keralis, Squirrel, Wujek Bohun, or GeekDomo, people with genuine interest in and knowledge of driving sims, people with strong credit and integrity respected by their fans, people who cannot be suspected of being our secret marketing shills.

One particular event is worth pointing out - after streaming ATS for three days starting this Friday already on his twitch channel, Paul a.k.a. Squirrel will be doing a Q&A session with SCS Software's CEO Pavel Šebor as part of his Sunday Night Trucking stream, starting at 7 pm UK Time, January 31.

  8. Rest assured SCS, I'll be buying ATS on release. I'm happy to support you as I can see the hard work that's gone into it. It's looking great, definitely a step up from ETS2 which I've enjoyed for many hours and I've no doubt I'll be enjoying this just as much. Also, your continued support for ETS2 so many years after release gives me the confidence to jump in from day one.

  16. DEAR SCS, try to make the development of your game - both in World_of_Tanks?!
    1 level - passenger car.
    2-3 levels - 1.5-3 ton truck.
    4-5 levels - truck 10-15 tons.
    6-8 levels - a truck 20 tons.
    9-10 levels - a tandem truck.
    Add multiplayer and "Premium technique" for real money.
    It will be good for everyone!
    This development will be very interesting!!!

  21. I still find it very frustrating that some people got ATS early....been waiting since 18 WoS american long haul for ATS (more than 7 years..) and just because some people were around ETS2 only they get your next product? what about us the old classic fan? :/

    1. Press got the game early, normal people like us need to wait.

    2. I'm not surprised.

      The people playing since 18 WoS are likely more educated and experienced in the truck world and therefore more capable of giving accurate feedback about the shortcomings of a truck simulator.

      They give access to streamers like Squirrel because him and his audience are largely ignorant about trucks (Squirrel asking Pavel what truck the T680 was in his visit to SCS or the woeful reversing attempt I saw from him) so he's less likely to spot flaws and shortcomings in the game that more educated truck fans would.

      This in turn keeps his audience ignorant to the those flaws and shortcomings, which is obviously a plus when you are trying to get as many people as possible playing your game. It is the blind leading the blind essentially.

      The last thing SCS wants is honest, intelligent and informed truck fans picking apart their game before release. This game is not aimed at the hardcore fans so you won't see people on the websites/forums dedicated to their older games (who still play 18Wos games) getting early access because they will notice and call out every shortcoming (like the inaccuracies of truck models for example) which guys like Squirrel will NEVER pick up on.

      People who have driven a truck in real life are the last people SCS want having early access to their game. Sad but true.

    1. I mean , I like all those previous trailers, but this one......It feels meaningless.

    2. I hate trailers that include voice-overs that aren't in the game/movie etc.

      It's so pointless. If the game doesn't have narration don't put it in your trailer to make the game seem "better" it just makes people think your game must be lacking to have to resort to such a lame gimmick.

      If you need to add stuff to your trailer you've probably failed in making the product itself good.

      I doubt they've included an actual story mode into the game that would require a voice actor. Seems like money wasted just for a cheap trailer.

      Same thing goes for the radio chatter. If that's just for the trailer, it's really lame but even if it's not..

      What's with all the egg talk?

      Delete
    3. Maybe,it;s just...it;s weired to add human stories into the trailer while the gamme doesn't have, and it just distract the audience's attention, nobody notices waht the game contents is and listening the useless voice.You might avoid this kind of strategy next time,SCS.

  27. This game looks awful compared to today release games.. Its looks like we are living in 2007.
    And weather system is copy-paste, yes with some small improvements...
    This would fit to american people who wanna drive their Kenworth etc etc... I have nothing against that..
    But in other way this game is absolete waste, because sometimes is much easier to start a new game with complete new engine, DX 11-12 support etc tc, instead copy and sell the game as new product.

  28. This game is pointless to be called a Simulator Truck.
    Somebody said to me that this game is something like Gran Turismo.. But obviously he doesnt understand what term simulator means.
    Game is really fraking easy. click twice on E to start up the engine and u drive.. Water temp is stucked at 88-90.
    Trucks are freaking overpowered.. Overpowered retarder.. Braking in two seconds.. In rain, yes it affects but like 1 sec delay in braking. You could barely feel the trailer weight..
    Thats sucks hairy ball.
    Where is the seatbelt sound example? Games from 2007 has that..
    Do SCS employeer's coming to work? If they coming, how many minutes spend in producting games? 60 min per day? They got a very promising game, but they doesnt show any interes in making more popular and enrich with real simulator effects

      But SCS is something else.. They got no problem in releasing PaintJobs aka Paintshit, and nonsense DLC's like toys in cabin. I would buy paintspacks but the worthy, such as paintpack for truck same as the trailer you drive.

    6. Gran turismo does not simulate, start engine, turnlight, GPS navigation, it's boring as hell cause looped little track, and even with more than 50 millions of copy sold, physics are so far from Assetto Corsa.

      Look at GTA credit to how much people work on it for a so little map without any licence to buy. Then, if Rockstar spend the same money in making a truck simulator, they will lost more than 90% of their investissement cause truck simulator does not interest so much people than a game where you can be a criminal.

    7. Daleko Daleko, what a sad life you must have when being forced (by somebody with a gun, I guess) to play the game you hate. Come on boy, kill that monster in your head and free your soul - just start doing something else, something you like. Is there anything like that in your world? Or is it THIS what you like - spitting around and spreading the hate...? Then all your endless effort would make sense to me. But if that's the case, then better speak to doctors, not to us.

      Believe the old guy, the life's too short to waste it by doing things you hate - unless you do them for your beloved ones. But that's hardly the case of you playing the ATS... :-)

    8. Yeah bro.. Truth hurts, because this and ATS arent even close to simulators :))

    9. GTA V had a development budget of 265,000,000 dollars. Do you think the SCS has anywhere near that to pay developers? I mean, you're obviously a foreigner so I don't expect you to have an IQ above 95, and no understanding of economics, so I shouldn't be too hard on you. Wow, the immersion of a seatbelt sound! By the way, the only way you could tweak the engine start is if everyone had a clutch and a stick so you could move it into neutral. Other than that, what do you want them to do? You know you can tweak the brake effectiveness, right? Get yourself some "Johnson and Johnson no more tears" shampoo so you can stop crying.

  36. Everything looks good and it seems like another successful game from SCS. My only concern here: Did you guys worked on optimizing this game a little bit or it's the same old engine like on ETS2?
    I mean, I'm running ETS2 on an HP laptop with 16GB RAM, GeForce 940 2GB and i7-5500U and can't get over 25fps with medium settings in Full HD (lowering the resolution looks very bad).
    I have tons of other much more resource-hungry games that run extremely well but ETS2 has a very poor graphic optimization (I'm not the only one stating this).
    Hope we'll see some improvement with ATS.
    Good luck!

  45. Those reviews...those guys suck, really. They talk about the fact you can't walk around, the fact the map isn't too big, but they barely know this game. It is a simulator after all, so you are not meant to walk by strets, you are meant to drive, there's no need to walk around, to leave your rig.
    The map isn't too big now, we know, but as ETS2, there will be DLCs, Updates and so on, that will increase the map size. No mention to other things like mods.
    You call it a ETS2 in America, but I ask, how it should be? I know, there are features that could make it different, such as double trailers and ability to purchase your own trailer, things those I miss, really, but that's the progress. Now, with a new game, we may have those options back in the future.
    It couldn't be different of ETS2, otherwise, it wouldn't be a, simulator.

      Same concept of gameplay, only two-four trucks avaible, same graphics, everything same xD Only seen difference is the american big rolls, and map.. I don't see nothing else. This game is unfinished product.
      It has same infrastructure, dull truck sounds..
      See Squirel's videos, you get what i want to say :D

      Delete
    3. It is a copy because it use the same gameplay and engine, only it. The graphics are different, the weather, etc, but the vehicles are not the same. Yes, there's only 2 trucks available on release, but that's because they want to give us a finished product, not a truck without its real brand.

      I wish, and I really do, to kill this system of "pick-up" a trailer, and bring back the old "bring a trailer". What I mean, is to remove the feature to take a trailer, and add a feature to buy your own trailer. For *** sake, I want to haul a Wabash Duraplate on my white Peterbilt, or a custom reefer on my custom 379, nothing else. The current system is boring and stupid yes, and I wish they remove it, but the game, that's a way to go, a way to, maybe in the future, get rid of this feature. For example, we have a good argument, that's we had this feature back in 18 WoS series, and now, we are here again in the USA, so why not bring the old system?

      Companies like SCS, they need money. If you see, their simulators are a bit of sucess, but nothing compared to other big games. Think about, how many people will choose to drive a truck around, with simulation features, rules, while they can take one in GTA and do whatever they want? ETS2 did good, and sold well, but money goes around, and then you need something to bring it back, in this case, DLCs, and, if you think that, someday DLCs wouldn't be enough and will be boring again, you need a new thing: a "new" game. Again, it is new, the country, the vehicles, even the way you drive: different rigs, different size, even different transmissions. People may think "yeah but they could've let us leave the truck, to take photos, to go to shop, etc, but this requires even more work, they don't want to make something like Farming Simulator physics, they want something realistic, and this, this would take too much time and spend too much money. Maybe, in the future. They need at first, to grow up a lot more, build a base, where they can work on such bigger projects. For example, Rockstar Games can release games every 2-3 years, they have a lot bigger team, to work more, and they games sell a lot compared to ETS2 sales, so, they get more funds to invest and create more and better games.

      Yes, I got what you mean, unfinished, but like I said...they need.

  46. Huge disappointment. I've been watching the live stream now for 5 hours and it is basically the same as ETS 2 just with american skins.
    My biggest complain is that it is way too easy!
    - You get loan so early again
    - Your first truck is new. Still no old trucks..
    - Pavement roads only. We want a challenge! Gravel roads, mud roads, slippery ice, snow.
    - AI is still poor.
    - Same interface as ETS, parking skill, GUI.
    The game is basically 20$ DLC to ETS2 instead of a whole new game.
    Point is, SCS didn't yet changed their attitude how to produce their games. Just alone the Map Editor and the way maps are produced haven't changed since 18WoS: Across America. The sad thing about that is, that it's not the state of the art anymore and long ago other games brought ways to produce maps that leave SCS's approach in shame. Check the Train Simulator 2010+ for what is possible.
    SCS never thought about making their games a sandbox game. Just produce the base and let the community handle the rest. Other games like OFP/ArmA series show that a healthy community can do anything. Unfortunally SCS didn't do anything about the Community until it was way too late and all the people from the old community were gone and moved to other games and producers.

  53. "This is the best simulator ever" why ?
    Nothing different between ETS2 and ATS !
    Players will not have own trailers in ATS like Haulin,LH.
    Players cant sleep in the truck like in Haulin,Long Haul...
    The carrier will be same like ETS2 what carrier in ETS2 with 2 jobs you make 150 000Euro and you buy last model of truck with big engine transmission full extras and etc. for 2h or max 5h game.
    This is not a carrier. Carrier is to start with old truck used without your trailer to work hard for companies who pay very little money to learn to save money to buy used or new trailer.to save money again and to buy some new truck or used but in good condition....
    To make contracts with companies and to drive for them or they to give you better payment loads...
    You cant see your truck on own parking lot like Haulin and Long Haul.
    Or to see them in a Traffic.
    You can find loads for you drivers and you trucks or rental trailers somethings like in PTTM. Or Haulin.
    Now in ETS2 you are not THE BOSS you just buy one truck and the driver make what he wanna whatever he is the boss not you.
    You cant control you driver and how many to pay him,when to go in service station,what to load...
    What is real in one game where you need to up levels and add points to can drive ADR Loads long distance and etc....
    And you cant pay for ADR Certificy and to add on one trailer adr sign.
    This points will tell me can i drive economically or not....where have realism in that or simulation ...or for long distance and etc...
    Scales they dont show you how many is your weight and if you are overweight or not HOW ITS REAL just only if you pass or not...what scale is that.
    SCS can make players to lift up and down every axle who have airbags or on the trailer now they rework this function from ets2 and to put into ats and players to slide tandems.
    In one interior in one truck have maybe more from 20keys they cant make one key to move they cant make one sensor on dashboard to move and work like from real life.
    They cant make better simulation and the condition on one truck to depends from the driver to see him oil sensor,water sensor,brakes if this truck need oil to change filters and etc player to can waste one engine and when repair him to cant make him like brand new and other parts get him comply with the rules on the road !
    Because they one day will get driver license and will drive similar like in the game ! RECKLESS ! ! !
    Sorry guys but its not a simulator ! Simulator was PTTM,Hard Truck,Haulin but not that with every game or version they recede from the simulation and real life...

      This post should be pinned for decade to SCS website, company, workplace.
      Not every game deserve to be called simulator.. So if has in the name Simulator, does that mean it simulates something?
      This game is simulates especially nothing. I says many times you could barely feel the weight of trailer.. It affect only on acceleration.. Affecting on steering? No way, this game should be arcade! My volvo water temp stucked at 87.. What simulator is that which give you 100.000 dollar/euro per tour?
      Insane..
      In close future if they make a simulator, we need to drive bio-economic mode.. Thats a called simulator lol.
      - The one who saying this is best simulator, they have no clue what simulator means, or even they drove/ seen a truck. This sense mostly could come from Kiddos..
      This game lacks OMSI features. Opening windows, door, etc,etc, though that games is from 2008.. Now we're at 2016, at SCS is late 15 years..
      They are not interesed in progressing anymore.
      With the release with ATS, it should progressing and profit, but they regressing.
      although i spent over 350 hours in game (still casual haha)

    2. Additional post: I've passed my 350 hours in this game using by mods. Thats very normal..
      I'm fed up of games types such as sim-you-later.
      I want simulator which gonna'll test my skills about driving, not testing my luck, if i gonna take that curve with my truck under 160 km/h, or 120 mph.
      Also ATS is nothing new from SCS :)

  55. WEIGHT STATION

    I didn't realize? I stopped by - thank you - keep movement...!?...!?
    Where printing of axis and the load, where the indicators...?

    THIS IS FAKE ! Are YOU CRAZY - it does NOT HAPPEN AT WEIGHING STATIONS, fuck

  56. Well, there you have it. ATS is evidence that SCS does NOT listen to their supporters. During the 3 years of ETS2 the forum/blog boards were flooded with game feature requests. People, who paid money to support SCS and their projects, constantly asked (even begged) SCS for new game features. And though some requests can be labeled as a bit outrageous, or perhaps ridiculous, many other requests became popular amongst the ETS2 virtual truckers.

    Ideas like the ability to purchase our own trailers, seeing our trucks parked in our garage/parking lot, being able to customize our garages, and other feedback requesting changes to the company management/economy, are just a few of the many ideas, and suggestions, people petitioned SCS to incorporate into the game. And for 3 years, we all waited from one patch update to another, DLC to DLC, hoping to finally see even just a glimmer of hope that maybe one of our greatly wanted ideas would finally become reality. But 3 years later, that didn't happen.

    But then, a new hope. ATS. A brand new start. SCS announced they are designing for us an American version of ETS2. And after all the feedback SCS received over the years, surely they would take advantage of this new beginning and design for us a really amazing game. They want the game to be successful right? And so do we virtual truckers. After all, the world SCS designs for us, will be the world we will virtually live in, or want to live in. It will be our playground, our escape from reality, our home away from home.

    Imagine my dissappointment when I saw (over the last few days {youtube}) that ATS is..... well.... it really is just ETS2 with a modded map. Thats all SCS did. They made a new map, moddeled a few new trucks, and bam.... they now call it ATS. In the sense of gameplay, there is absolutely no difference between the ATS map for the ATS game, and the Scandinavian map from ETS2. ATS is that much of a copy and paste of ETS2 that after installing a dozen or so mods you may even forget on occassion exactly which of the two games you are currently playing. And the sadder reality is.... you will likely be able to setup both game to be exact carbon copies of each other, map for map, truck for truck, etc......

    .... and that encourages the question.. "why are we investing money into the same game AGAIN? Didn't we already purchase ETS2?

    Some people however still have their hope, and optimism. Already i'm seeing posts explaining that ATS will have more added in the future. SCS just needs the money from the current ATS game so they can afford to give us more things. We all just need to be a bit patient. Thats the advice I see posted. We just need to be patient. So again, we'll all wait from one patch update to another, DLC to DLC, and hope for at least a glimmer of what we would love to see added to this game.

    1. I definately consider it very discouraging to see many people, not only accept, but also support, the business model adopted by SCS. When it gets to the point where a gaming company can retitle an already existing game, and sell it to the public a second time..... and people are ok with this business practice.... that's just amazing.

      Selling ATS as a new game, would be equivalant to selling the Scandinavian DLC as a new game. I'm not arguing that ATS isn't different than ETS2, but rather, i'm questioning the differences between the two mapped worlds, and am simply pointing out that these differences, limited to map/trucks (NOT gameplay) doesn not justify calling ATS a new game, no more than these same changes made to the Scandinavian DLC justifies calling it a new game.

      ATS, in my opinion, is NOT a new game. It is at best, a standalone modded map. Now again, i'm not saying this new modded map isn't worth 20 bucks. But what I am saying is... SCS should be more honest about what they are offering the public, because in my opinion, I think SCS is misleading people into thinking they are getting a brand new game.... when they are not. And thats just very poor, and low business politics.

    2. Or said another way:

      When "Giants" gaming company offered the a brand new map (Sosnovka), and new vehicles in one package, did you notice that they didn't pass it off as a "new game"? I mean after all.... Sosnovka is a new map just like ATS is. And it does come with new vehicles just like ATS does. So why do Giants call it a DLC addon, and SCS calls it a new game?

      One argument could be, Gaints didn't make their Sosnovka map a "standalone" map, and SCS DID make their American map a standalone. So in that sense, if SCS would have made the Scaninavian DLC a standalone map as well, then that would have made the Scandinavian map a new game too? Right?

  83. no doubles, no multi-point deliveries, just decor police cars (no stop, no chase), 2(+1) states, can't buy trailer, can't see owned trucks in garage or on the road, no garage upgrade(just automatic for more slots), no radio communication, no seatbelt (key and sound) , no cabin light, crap sounds, same very poor economy...
    Just new map and 2 trucks..and 5% better graphics.
    Doesn't worth in my op.

  84. Ok, I've downloaded the game from kickass to and its is only 1.05 GB, working fine.. But game is big disappointment and top1 worst game for 2016.
    - Same menu, graphics settings, UI
    - Same navigataion layout, settings, no changes mean
    - Same clunky physic, maybe worse now
    - Same construction, Scandiania road infrastructure.
    - Worse optimized..
    - Same sounds for blinkers and tires..
    Big fail, not finished.. Use VPN or proxy server to download.
