Texas - Nature #2 (Water Bodies, Deserts, Forests, Mountains)

A while ago we brought to you a blog article that was the first part of showcasing the local nature in the upcoming Texas DLC. Back then we were basically on flat, even ground, however, this time around you should prepare for an exciting up-and-down journey!

You may remember that we have covered some of the local mountains in a blog dedicated to rock formations, but there is still more to be shown. After all, Texas can be considered to have three major climate types, which, in addition to Continental and Modified Marine ones, also include a Mountain type. And even though it’s hardly possible to squeeze all 2,164 named mountains, peaks, and hills into our in-game scale, we’re sure the distinctive shapes of the mountain ranges will always provide the right immersion when passing them by in your mighty trucks!

Not only are deserts and forests like night and day, but in Texas, they are also prominently featured mostly on opposite sides of the state. While you will be able to drive through the vast Chihuahuan desert in the west, the east will tell a completely different story with its thick forest of pines. These ecosystems do have one characteristic in common though, as both are places that provide their own unique qualities, such as materials, wildlife, or flora.

The real-world state’s area consists of more than 7,000 square miles (18,129 square kilometers) of water surfaces and there will be plenty of lakes, rivers, and shoreline views in the map expansion. The Gulf of Mexico is probably the absolute winner in this particular sub-topic, but there are still plenty of interesting water bodies to be found all around the state, such as the Fork Red RiverBrazos River, and more!

We hope today’s short trip wasn’t too steep. If you are looking forward to exploring all the different biomes of Texas DLC, make sure to add the expansion to your Steam Wishlist.
