Conclusion of Christmas event

The holiday season is a time of rest for most people, but for the logistics industry, it is the busiest time of the year. The International Gift Delivery event on World of Trucks saw the community unite to bring much needed assistance to the North Pole and deliver gifts on both sides of Atlantic.


A large number of our fans took up the challenge and dedicated their time over the festive period to delivering Christmas cargoes. In the first 48 hours, you had delivered over 250,000 cargoes! People actually noticed quickly that with each 250K milestone, a new hanging tree accessory was granted to players who had reached their personal contributions, which provided another boost to motivation. It's no wonder that you were quick to reach the 1 million cargoes delivered community goal, and went even further. The rate of deliveries completed even had Santa in North Pole shocked! Thank you to every single driver who contributed to the event, and to those who really went the extra mile. It really brings a huge smile to the faces of the SCS team to see how much you enjoy these events.

Here are some interesting stats. By the way - the distance of in-game kilometers/miles driven as part of the event could get you from Earth to Mars and back! Pretty impressive, right? :)

ATS Teasing

A New Year brings new release plans, and we believe it's time to start talking about what we're preparing for you in 2019!

We are making solid progress in learning to manage multiple projects in various stages of completion, which is very important for the future of American Truck Simulator. We usually begin talking about a new expansion when we feel that we can show enough of finished content on a regular basis to keep you updated on the work progress.

That perfect time for announcing the name of a new map expansion for American Truck Simulator could be right now... but first of all, a bit of teasing. It would be too simple to reveal our newest map DLC straight away, and we know how much you love guessing!

So for now, we have prepared a photo gallery of original images from an upcoming map expansion you can look forward to playing this year. Here's an appetizer, bon app├ętit!

Baltic video contest: results

We weren't sure how many of you would respond to our call, but you have amazed us once again! We have received a large number of submissions for the Beyond the Baltic Sea video contest. Our evaluation committee had a blast reviewing the entries. There were so many cool ideas there, novel camera angles, and most importantly so many cool places in the new map portrayed there, we have been impressed.


So without further ado, here are the winners in no particular order - the TOP 3 entries!




There were several more notable entries, but unfortunately, some of the videos had problems or drawbacks which held them back or even disqualified them from the contest. Some of the videos seemed unfinished, perhaps due to time pressure, there were really creative concepts attempted but probably things didn't end up quite as planned. In the end, we decided to mention two more videos in addition to the three winners, and award them with a "special mention" prize:



We have also picked about 20 additional videos that we think are worth it to be featured on our social media channels. Even if they didn't make it all the way to the top, they are interesting to watch and must have taken a lot of time to produce. We have enjoyed watching them all. You can check them out on our official Facebook and Twitter accounts.

We also received a lot of different pleas and requests that we should consider for any next video contest. It was mainly concerning the length of the video and the submission window for the contest. We'd appreciate if you'd write your feedback/pleas/requests into the comments section. What would you need/ what would make it easier or more interesting for you to enter any future contests?

Big thanks to all the contest participants, we wish you all good luck next time! All winners will be notified via email.

SCS On The Road: Broshuis Event

The New Year may have only just begun but the time has come once again, to bring together the SCS On The Road crew and wake up our Sim Trailer from a deep sleep!

Next stop - Broshuis Event 2019 in Kampen, Netherlands! It's going to be the 5th edition of this full public available event where visitors are able to walk along the factory and witness all the process of how the Broshuis Holland trailers are being made from the start to the very last detail.


For the SCS On The Road 2019 season, we'd love to add a few events like this to our 'to visit' list. Transportation industry events organized, sponsored or run by specific companies are very interesting for us as to participate in them might open door to important contacts, start new cooperations, strengthen our current relationships with brands or establish our name among them.

Those who carefully follow our Twitter and Instagram profiles surely know that we've already had a few meetings with representatives of the Broshuis B.V. company during the year of 2018. We imagine that all of this cooperation raises a lot of questions, but we don't want to spoil anything specific just yet.

The message for today's article is we'd like to announce that we'll be at this event with our unique trailer along with its crew, 4D Motion Seats and a few boxes full of our own SCS merchandise to distribute as gifts to our fans! So if you're going to be somewhere around Kampen on Saturday the 12th of January - from 9.00 AM to 05.00 PM CET, make sure to stop by this event, find our spot and spend some time with us.
