American Truck Simulator Releasing Today


We are only hours away from the release of American Truck Simulator!

The official street date is February 3rd, but as we see it, it would be too cruel to let you wait until tomorrow morning.

We were thinking of unleashing the game at midnight Prague time. However, going through all the release process late at night and staying on alert for a while after the game gets out to see if no hot-fixing is needed immediately takes some hours. The release crew would not get to bed before 4 am.

So here is the plan: We will start the release process this evening already (CET time zone), and while we are not sure if we'll need an hour or three to press all the buttons that must be pressed, we expect that the game will unlock a few hours before midnight already. Both the keys sold in digital channels as well as keys in retail boxes will start working at the same time. Looking at the clock now, you should be able to play the game in less than 12 hours!

We'll be updating you on the situation through our communication channels, watch our Twitter or ATS facebook for quick updates.

    2. There is no "Disk" version of ATS the BOXED version contains a Steam key, just so we're perfectly clear, ATS is Steam ONLY!

      (deleted first comment due to typo)

      Delete
    3. Like with most games recently the box contains a disk with the game on and a Steam key. The game data is installed onto Steam from the disk and you enter the Steam key during the installation process.

    2. They want to release the W900 and the 389 will come to ATS soon after release, like SCS wrote in an ealier blogpost. Pavel Sebor said the same in the interview with squirrel on Sunday.

    6. originally the game was going to be released at 11am-13pm CET on Feb 3rd. releasing it at midnight means its 12 hours earlier. point is that they released it earlier than planned.

  21. I wont comment on this ... I hope just that will be this game great in future too ... close to ETS2 or better ;) - for now, it is far,far from ETS2 ... except thing which are copy/paste from ETS2 ... and some new things .... game engine is on the same level ... you just raise Recommended Graphic Cards from ETS2 for 2 levels ... lol ... This will not save you from players who will stay on the same PC's and dont have just money to buy every year new PC ... I saw data too ... so, now is everything on one place ...later you will send us again updated with totaly new different base ... lol ... can you not organize on start ?? all States in USA are not the same ... I think ... I'm dissapointed about that for sure !

  62. As the owner of 18 WOS Haulin, 18 WOS American Long Haul, Euro Truck Simulator, German Truck Simulator, UK Truck Simulator, Rig N Roll, 18 WOS Extreme Trucking, Scania Truck Simulator, and Euro Truck Simulator 2, I have to commend you, SCS, on yet another masterpiece. As an American truck driver, I have been waiting for this game, for a long time, and you did not disappoint. I will be watching everyday, for news about upcoming additions, as an east coast trucker, but for now, I'm content to roam the western lands, as long as it takes. Thank you for this fantastic simulator.

  63. Hello, I am a very big fan of SCS when it comes to ETS2 love it, but I used to be a truck driver in the United States and I have to say you guys should have had a American truck driver test the game for you guys and not European Youtubers that never drove a real truck in the United States, because any of us would have told you about the speed limits, on the highways it is 65 or 70 and also back roads go between 55 to 25 in some areas and don't just drop down to 30 from 55 and the cops don't give out tickets as much as they do for going 2 miles over the speed limit. The only state that trucks have to go slower than cars I believe because it's been a while since I have driven through there is either Indiana or Illinois I can't remember, cars go 65 and trucks go 55 and they are strict on that and will pull over for 1 mile over the speed limit. Don't get me wrong the game is awesome and I love it, but I keep getting tickets from the cops. Thank you very much for great games.

  64. 1500 тыщи за два штата и два типа грузовиков, да вы явно шутите ребята)) Неофициальные моды к ETS2 два контента больше имеют. В общем пока не выйдет хотя бы половина штатов не вижу смысла покупать этот мод к ETS2, потому что полноценной игрой это назвать сложно.

  65. honestly you have to have a large, and not small consideration as I think you are having, the users of 32-bit, because you never forget, never, if you arrived where they are as a software company, it was only because the vast majority users of 32-bit, because switching to a 64-bit system, not only implies a change to a simple game, most certainly would have to make major changes in all your software, be it for work or study and not only for game that is, a factor of credibility and ethics you seriously think that point.
