American Truck Simulator Out Now!

The launch process was even smoother than we had hoped, so we are happy to announce that American Truck Simulator keys will now activate the game, and that it has become visible and ready for purchase on Steam.

Actually the start is promising, we have good visibility for the game on the front page.

    1. Download as a mod from ATSMODS.LT if you're so impatient. Give them a break (SCS team), they're working hard on the game.

    2. working hard on the game for 2 years (if not more), to bring us 2 trucks and a map that takes 8 hours to explore..., not even a BEACON can be added to the truck. quit kissing their ass and tell them how it is, the game was a HUGE let down. Since ats has been mentioned by scs, i see far more changes to ets2 than the amount of content in all of ats

    3. I agree, was a let down. ETS-2 blows this out of the water. You would figure that porting parts of ETS2 over would have helped but Nope. Also seems the trucks in ATS are driving on ice vs ETS2...I am a bit upset, Too many cops on the road, 2 Trucks in game, Time moves too fast vs ETS2 that seems to have the time from point A - B down vs the time warp this game offers. Rest stops are empty fields on the side of the road, (I do like the parking 3 options this game offers, That is about the only thing that is good), and stupid IA cars, was 6 cars back at a red light by the time I got 1/3 through the light it was turning red, well common sense would say dont drive in the side of the truck but no car pulls out and drives right in the side of my truck. God it kills me to have given it a neg on steam. But people who are just starting out should just buy ETS2 and not this one.

      Delete
    4. I've played 6+ hours and still have tons to explore and do...barely scratched the surface! Perhaps you are rushing around the map??? This game is fantastic. Same game as ets2, but everything is new. Have not had a chance to even care about another truck yet.

      But hey if you don't like it, you don't like it....that's allowed!

    5. It's.... Exactly the same. The reason why it feels as if it goes too quick... Maybe you're used to driving cross country in Europe opposed to a state. I had that problem too... But I'm excited for the future of ATS.

      But don't sit around thinking its a huge let down... Everything that is released is exactly what they said...

  21. The game looks and feels like ETS2, same problems all over that we encounter in ETS2 are present in ATS as well, same stupid AI, same problems with aliasing, no dx11 support and many many more problems that i can only hope to be addressed in the near future.
    As for the lack of content, well... YEAH, couldnt agree more, the game lacks in content even compared to ETS2 when it was released. While i can understand the lack of trucks as having to do with the licensing, i cannot understand why the map is so small, why there are not more and diverse trailers in the game, given that you have been working on ATS for ever... And even if you did say that you will be releasing map dlc's at a faster rate then u did for ETS2, i find that hard to believe since you took this long to make ATS with just two states(so i guess u left all the hard work for the modding community as you guys can not be bothered with this kind of stuff).And unless i am not mistaken, maybe you have them already done and decided not to include them in the original game so you can sell later on as dlc's...

    On the bright side...
    Well, i guess the map looks better then ETS2, seems to be more animated and a lot more detailed, even then Scandinavia.
    Also the game seems to move slightly better then ETS2, but that could have to do with the fact that i am not running any mods atm.
    All in all ATS is a STEP OVER ETS2 but not enough for what i was hoping.

    In the end all i can say is that ATS doesnt satisfy my hunger for a new trucking game, and all i can hope is that some other developer will take a shot at this genre or wait for you guys to make ATS2 or ETS3 on a real game engine like Unreal or CryEngine...

    1. Great post dear Adrian. I couldn't agree with you more. I will not buy the same game again. Copy - paste from ETS 2, with minor few new assets, different map and trucks. It looks like SCS want to be like EA Sports with their FIFA games. I will support ETS 2, but I won't give you my money for ATS. I'll pass.

      Delete
    2. So the disappointment continues...

      Sad to see that nothing has been done to the economy model, other then it seems to pay less for jobs and its easier to get speeding tickets, something that you can always tweek about like in ETS2 so doesnt do much for me.
      I would of expected you to do something about the economy. Same like ETS2, there is not much left for me to do other then drive around with no porpuse so now having to do all that but in an american truck with a new map, doesnt make sense to me. I have been hearing all about the hard work you have been putting in ATS... Where the fuck is that hard work... REALLY !?
      Personally i think a little tweak to the ui, a different economy model, a new system for leveling up and developing/managing your economy it would of done wonders to the game with minimum effort from your developing team...
      On the other hand, driving in ATS seems kind of stupid to me, speed limits changing from 55 to 30 and the 70 very fast makes for a very annoying drive, i guess this where introduced in order to make driving more challenging but for me they cut from the simulation feeling.
      To add to the list of things that piss me off about ATS, we have planes and jets flying around but dont make any noise, was it so difficult to implement a sound for them ??? And what about the freight trains in ATS? same shit like in ETS2... 4,5 carriages and thats it? Doesnt look to american to me to be honest...

      So stop blabbing about your "hard work" as that is bullshit and you know it. Tell it as it is: same shit, repacked, slammed a different label, a fancy ribbon and thats about it, copy/paste job with minimum effort for maximum profit.

    3. I guess y'all don't realize how much how big the ats map will be? If you're going to complain then don't buy the game simple as that.

      Delete
    4. What the hell that has to do with anything ??? Who cares how big the map will be in 15 years from now... If i buy a game, i buy it to play it now, not for how this game is going to look in 15years time... And as a customer it is within my right to complain and if you dont like it maybe you should scroll over my post without reading it, as i dont know if you noticed but it wasnt addressed to you by no means.
      Maybe you are just the kind of person with very low expectations, maybe you dont know or dont care about quality or maybe your quality standards are just different then mine, and that is fine... I invite you to post a comment about your own impressions about this game in a separate post...

  25. I have enjoyed watching others play ETS and AT&T on YouTube. Is it possible that these games will ever become available for PS4/XBOX One? Seeing the success of Farming Simulator 15, I think these games would be a great addition to these platforms.

  30. Huge dissapointment. I guess all those million copies of ETS2 made you think that future games from you SCS guys will receive more and more hype, and this is true, cause you`ve seen all these people waiting and wanting the all new (bullshit) ATS.
    Small map, few trucks, few trailers....I mean we all new what you are offering but when you start playing the game and realise all the lacks of everything, it is a different feeling from what you get to read from a blog post.
    I bought the game as soon as it was available on steam. Made a steam account just for this (cause you smartasses won't support a stand alone digital download from your website like in the case of ETS2) but I will ask steam to refund my money cause this game is worst even then the 18WoS series.
    And btw....great offer with that Nevada DLC which is free from the very beginning. Without this I guess all we were able to do is go round in circles in our garage.
    Lame, lame, lame.
    You should have sticked to ETS and do more map DLCs cause there is still plenty of Europe left outside, rather then this American bullshit adventure or whatever you call it.
    Maximum peek of SCS was with ETS2....from this moment, I think you will be going down and the numbers will tell the truth....the numbers regarding the income from ATS, which will be crappy and soon you will abandon it or development of anyother DLC will be posponed over and over.

  34. Thanks SCS ... bought and run the Pete .... Enjoyed my first session and ATS meets my expectations. As it leverages heavily from ETS2, it difficult to say that it's blown any socks off to be honest. I'm looking forward to the updates and future developments. Price is fair and a big thanks for getting us over the US side. As it develops, I hope the reference to 'Sim' in the title is not forgotten.

Wer etwas ahnung vom Grafikdesign hat sieht wieviel arbeit in der Map steckt.

  37. Game is a great start, but needs a lot more trucks and trailers to be where it should be. SCS, please add B trains as well, and please add older truck models, rather then just brand new ones (379 etc). Two questions - why is there no reverse lights on all the trailer and why is there no smoke from the stacks? North american trucks always shoot black smoke out. Great start though!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. "North american trucks always shoot black smoke out"

      Not anymore.

      Newer trucks (like the ones featured in this game) are fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) system that filters the soot (black smoke) from exhaust gases.

      Older truck models are harder to get licenses for as the truck manufacturers want to showcase the trucks they currently sell. If you want older trucks you will probably have to use mods.

      The 379 you mention as brand new has been discontinued for years and was replaced by the 389 which is coming to the game soon.

      No idea about the lack of reverse lights.

      Delete
    2. Ok, I was not sure about newer trucks, as you never really see the 2 new models in game on the road. I always see older trucks, like Freightliner Century's and FLD 120s, Mack superliners and old Kenworth COE's. These are the trucks that I feel should really be in the game, they make up most of the trucks you see day to day on the road. Personally, i like the look of them a lot better than the newer rigs.

      Delete
    3. ^ Plus most of the older trucks were in most of the 18WoS games. I dont really care if they have the official logo, use the off-brand ones like they did before - Kinetic, Forerunner etc, then you can add whichever trucks you want.

      Delete
    4. The manufacturers weren't happy when SCS used fake brands for their trucks.

      Delete
    5. SCS Already explained why they didn't put the trucks in the game with different brand names. The truck manufacturers weren't happy with this and were a bit hesitant to give the licence because of this so SCS decided not to do this in TAS to avoid any licencing problems.

      Delete
  38. Well, I guess I'm not ready to buy this because of pricing. I've seen lots of video with ATS and sure it's great game. And I'm a loyal fan of ETS2 and have all not-paint DLCs.
    The only thing that stops me from buying this game is Russian price that you set. ATS for me now is 2.5 times more expensive than ETS2 (while in Europe price almost the same) and it's only 25% cheaper than such games as GTA5 and Fallout4 (while 20 euro for ATS and 60 for AAA projects).
    Not localising price of this release — strange decision. As I know it shocked Brazilian an Turkish community as well. Please change the price or at least react to this awkward situation.

  45. I'll be brief: compared to ETS2, this game has the following new features AT RELEASE:

    - New map of two US states: California and Nevada.
    - Police cars drive around and serve as mobile speed traps. No more careless speeding between speed traps.
    - Two new American trucks. Two is also the total number of trucks you can drive in the game at release. Read it: 2. TWO.
    - New traffic models, replacing European cars with American ones.
    - Some minor parking tweaks.
    - It has helicopters, blimps and crop dusters flying around. Crop dusters are cool.
    - It has weigh-in stations, which are basically the same annoying toll booths, but you don't pay.

    That's it. That's the exhaustive list of innovations. ATS has the same interface, the same progression, the same skill system, the same loan system, the same messages, the same tutorial, the same graphics (it doesn't look better than ETS2 at all), even THE SAME MENU MUSIC. Everything is the same. Except it's in America, and with fewer trucks.

    This is a very well done, very pretty, and very expensive (all things considered) OFFICIAL MOD for Euro Truck Simulator 2.

    Get it if you're okay with more of the same in new, less diverse environment. Otherwise, stay away. At least, for now. SCS will probably (read: definitely) add more trucks and areas eventually, but I seriously doubt the experience will be much different.

    2. No, they are putting all attention on ATS because it's just been released.

      You know, that time period when a company can now actually start trying to make back the money they've been investing in the product for years.

  52. Actually SCS, its not just about "getting your voice heard" (as you suggest), but also, its about "offering something worth listening to".... and a project people can take serious.

    Unfortunately for you SCS, you thought you could bring your empty slotted game, (with all graphics and no gameplay)... to North America, and people here would kneel at your feet and give you whatever you wanted.......

    How did that work out for you?

    The only reason ETS2 is as popular as it is, and as good a game as it is... is because of the modding community. The modders made ETS2 worth buying.... and playing. Without the modding community ETS2 likely would have sunk a long time ago. I trust the same will be true for ATS......

    ... and this is what the manufacturers are likely thinking as well. Why should we (the manufacturers) invest our time and property in a company that depends so heavily on everyone else building and selling their game for them?

    Just in the last couple years alone countless posts requesting things for the ETS2 game were posted. And you SCS ingored them (us). Now you want our help to sell ATS for you so you can what???? Continue ignoring us????

    Where's the ability to purchase our own trailers? Why can't we see our trucks parked in our garage? When are you going to fix the company management part of the game? When exactly are you going to do anything that doesn't involve a new road, truck, and yet another freaking paintpack???????
    18 wos is a lot better.
    The saddest part of all of this, is that we the fans, and supporters of you (SCS), have to suffer your incompetance.

  57. SCS.
    The Russian ruble 1.499 rubles. Can two weeks to feed the whole family for this money!

    I won't buy until you do justify this price. When the game will be like GTA5 - for us it is the same price games.

    American Truck Simulator must have:
    Your trailer and its upgrade.
    on account of the Weight stations (so the scoreboard indicators were included) Yes the Police can set up normally with the persecution!

    Truckstop on the Scales!? What their function is not clear.

    To see their drivers on the roads.
    To manage staff and to compete with other firms!

  58. I must say one thing: I'm really impressed. I thought it will be simply boring, because there aren't many changes regarding to ETS2 but the game is different. The climate is different and I really like it. You have surprised me the parking difficult. Sometimes I had to spend a couple of minutes to park the truck. I have a feeling that the trucks otherwise to drive than in ETS2. The views are amazing. I'm looking for further upgrades and map extension. It was worth their prices at least in Poland. I think you should really lower the price in countries where the crisis is. The Russians,Brazilians and other nations who are writing here they do have their arguments. Now in Poland is a little bit better than years ago, but I remember the times when we can't afford of a few things. They deserve a fair price.

  63. Should have been sold as an ETS expansion pack not a stand alone game.
    Needs more trucks and more areas of USA. Needs Less police cars, when every other car is a cop car it looks like an arcade game.
    Nice graphics on ultra and fast load times is a plus.
    I also like the same GUI as ETS, if it works don't fix it means the Devs are a bright collective.
    Overall worth the 15 quid as its a decent truck Sim on par to ETS.
    More content and DLC's are surely ob the way, so don't slate the game in this early stage.

  66. I tend to agree with you however I wont pay to purchase every new DLC they release. They need to have a good balance between free and paid DLC otherwise they risk losing their loyal fan base. I have been playing these games since UK Truck Simulator and the only thing I find disappointing in this new game is the the size of the included map. With 52 States in the USA it is really disappointing to only see two states at launch. I look forward to seeing how SCS address the concerns of it's loyal fan base and how they move the game forward.

    1. I completely agree. This has been my complaint for a long while . ETS2, and now ATS, is all about “graphics”, and no “gameplay”. All you do is drive up and down the road. That's it. Though that is a major part of the game which I really like, and look forward to when I click the play button, at the same time, I can't help but notice how empty the game is with absolutely nothing else to do.

      This is a bit more acceptable from ETS2, being that its just a 2012 game. Still however, ETS2 compared to other games from the same date in time, can also appear to be “outdated”. For example; ETS2 vs Farming Simulator 2013. After ETS2 receiving almost 4 years of updates and DLCs, it can fairly be compared now to Farming Simulator 2015. Regardless which of the two Farming Simulator games you compare it to, it is easy to see that ETS2 is greatly lacking in gameplay options and features. ETS2 never did catch up with other games of the same time period. Despite all the updates, and the DLCs it received, ETS2 just didn't evolve from the empty shell of a game that it is.

      ATS, now offered in 2016, should reflect exactly that, the year 2016. But unfortunately SCS decided to base this 2016 game on an very outdated 2012 ETS2. In my opinion, this is a step backwards for SCS. Whats even more disappointing is that SCS may likely plan to carry this format into the future.

    4. Whether its lack of innovation, lazy programming, or greed to just get anything out there SCS trusts will get money out of people's pockets, the result is the same.......

      ..... an empty shelled game that SCS waits for the modding community to build, and sell for them. Unfortunately the modding community can only do so much. Its not like they are given much to work with.

  70. This is a replika game from ets 2,maybe they need to look at spintires game to learn how to make the physics of the truck, y hope the moders make a game company and make a real truck simulator.They start to make bad games because there is no competition on market for this type of games.

  76. SCS is publicly petitioning us for money. They want us to purchase their product. We are in our own “Consumer Rights” to critique any service or product of which a company is using as leverage to achieve from us a monetary benefit.

    If I were asking you for money so I could organize a startup fund to do exactly that, create my own game, wouldn't you be interested (and have questions about) what kind of game I was going to design, how I was going to market it, and why should “you” invest “your” money in “my” project????

  79. Não desmerecendo o trabalho da SCS, mas sinceramente até o momento me sinto decepcionado com este lançamento,realmente esperava mais. Não vi tanta coisa diferente, o que percebi foi apenas uma roupagem diferente para o ETS2. Quando digo roupagem mudou-se o cenário e a carenagem dos camihões. Nos videos que tenho visto, até o som de ar de freio, seta e outros são os mesmos do ets2.
    Sinceramente vou aguardar quando realmente existir algo novo no jogo para então comprar, double traillers seria uma boa opção.

  80. Thumbs up! I was not expecting more than a "clone" of ETS2 in American colours, but it is not just a clone, it is great game and I really enjoy it much much :). I will be still playing ETS2 together with ATS - What may be great to implement some kind of link, for example "global hauling" grab cargo in ATS -Fresno, move it to the harbor, "magic ship" will move it to Dover in no time, start ETS2 and grab that cargo in dover towards to Prague for example :). Anyway, my first impressions (in CZECH) are available in my YT video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vSlT13bnek Thanks again SCS!

  83. First off, I like the game concept and I like SCS Software so I bought the game cause I trusted them since I enjoyed ETS2.

    This feels either an early access game or an official modpack/dlc pack or demo for ETS2. There's way too many inconsistencies in this game California Scenic Simulator to recommend others to purchase it. As others have said-
    - Game strongly resembles ETS2
    - Graphics to me feel worse than ETS2 but could just be me
    - Gameplay feels sluggish
    - It's like an Apple product that got a re-skin
    - Trucks feel slow, sluggish, inconsistent to actual American trucks, speed limits are weird, speed is mostly capped at 55 and sometimes drops from 55 to 30 and then back to 70 and then within .01 seconds it drops back to 55 and if you're speeding during those times (like less than 5mph over) prepare yourself for tickets
    - Stop signs at street lights
    - Sometimes traffic at intersections is neverending and the only way to proceed is to save the game and reload so you have a chance of finishing a load
    - Anti-aliasing? I'm pretty sure the developer has no idea what this does and why it's important
    - Same music as ETS2

    Simply put: It doesn't feel like an American Truck Simulator game. It's at best a California Scenic Simulator.

    At this time I'd give the game a solid 50% rating - I'm still going to play it but I wish it would have been better, and or gets better soon.

    ReplyDelete
  84. You do awesome truck games, but not simulator. Currently there is no game that could replace ETS/ATS.
    I got one note.. I feel like driving sport car at 80 km/h (50 mp/h).
    The handling and steering is very sensitive.Driving with that speed feels like I did drove with 140 km/h +++.
    If you really want to enjoy slower trucking (which come more realistic) use WARP 0.8 in console.It will slow down a bit your game and feel you're really driving truck with some heavy real physic mod.
    BTW game is a bit strange without any physic mod

  85. I can only say that the maximum speed limit in the US change during the night for trucks.
    I believe they can even go as fast as they can on the highway.

  90. SCS better hope the “Giants” company doesn't decide to try out the Trucking Sim scheme. When you look at all the game features they pack into their simulation games..... (such as the Farming simulator series)..... “Giants” will literally embarrass SCS.

    Farming Simulator offers you brand name vehicles, which you can see parked on your map. You can get in and out of vehicles and walk around. The game is jammed packed with animations. Placeable objects. See your hired workers using their vehicles. And.... multiplayer.

    If “Giants” offered a trucking sim, I wouldn't hesitate to invest in their project.

  94. A simulator is when you drive the machine has a behavior close to reality. Graphs, models or landscapes can be aesthetic and functional options of the creators that enhance the experience. The truck and trailer are protagonists because although perhaps never drive a truck, I can do at home; by the way, I can learn how to manage finances. It's just my humble opinion.

  95. The game so far is great. it will continue to get better as more DLC is released. The people complaining about the small map probably haven't even played the game. The map is very detailed and diverse. I prefer detailed smaller map over a huge map that looks the same were ever you go. The graphics look great and I have a feeling some of these trolls are just upset that their crappy computers cant run the game. also at $20 bucks i would gladly have paid triple this amount. Great job SCS.

    1. Triple? Really? You would have paid $60 for this? Lol. And what???? Probably haven't played the game? What if they probably DID play the game? What if their .... so called crappy computers.... CAN run the game???? What if people's complaints are based on how they feel, as dependant on their own personal preferences? Have you thought of that?

      And what's your logic for buying this game? What was that again? Oh yea, that's right. It will get better in the future. That's what you are claiming right? Well the future always sounds like a great place to be, and it always seems like its going to be loaded with great stuff and everything but.... what the hell is that doing for us TODAY?????

      Also, keep in mind that we are talking about SCS. We've been waiting 3 years already for ETS2 to get better, and nope, hasn't happened yet. 3 years of people begging SCS for game features. 3 years people begging SCS for game improvements. Where are those features? Where are those improvements?

      So you just continue dreaming that ATS is going to get better in the future.

      If you learn anything about SCS .... its that they are innovatively handicapped. Their games don't evolve. They just get bigger and bigger with the same copy and paste ideas.
