Oklahoma - Tulsa

One of the cities you will be able to explore in the upcoming Oklahoma DLC for American Truck Simulator is the city of Tulsa, which is located in the northeastern part of Oklahoma. Due to its location, the city is a convenient hub for transportation and commerce, and there will be plenty of reasons to pay it a visit on your journey across the new state.

Established in 1836, Tulsa experienced rapid development in the early 20th century when vast oil reserves were discovered nearby, attracting numerous entrepreneurs and boosting the city's population. Despite dealing with hardships over the years, the city persevered and underwent significant revitalization. Today, it is a wonderful metropolis that continues to be a thriving center for energy, aerospace, and technology industries.

When it comes to Tulsa in the game, you'll discover numerous fascinating industrial areas to transport goods to and from, including a bus factory, river port, airport, and chemical plants. For more details on these locations, feel free to refer to our earlier blog post on New Industries.

Moreover, Tulsa is crisscrossed by the iconic Route 66, offering a nostalgic charm. And don't miss the opportunity to explore notable landmarks such as the university and an impressive arena, along with a beautiful panorama view of the entire city.

We know you’d like to get your hands on The Sooner State as soon as possible, but we still have some awesome topics we’d like to cover before it will be fully ready. Make sure to add Oklahoma DLC to your Steam Wishlist if you haven’t done so yet, and follow our social media profiles (TwitterInstagramFacebookTikTok) to stay in touch with the latest news.

SCS On The Road - New YouTube Series

For some time now, and for many of the recent business trips we took, we have been preparing something extra for our community, something we have always wanted to do, but never had enough capacity within our teams, until now. Today we are happy to finally reveal this idea, this project, this new YouTube series of ours to you!

What is it going to be about, you ask? Rather than putting down a wall of text, we were thinking it might be better to introduce and explain it all to you in the first episode. Let's call it Episode 0, and you can enjoy it below!

We hope you like the idea in general, and that we will be able to bring you through this new series some good entertainment, something fun yet interesting to watch, and that you will be able to learn some bonus information about our work, or about the brands we cooperate with and their products. 

However, it would be quite disappointing to reveal our new series, and not bring you at least one of the episodes we have prepared at the same time as well, right? Let's sit back, relax and enjoy the first episode with us right now.

We have a few more episodes already being finished and becoming ready to be served to you as well, but as of now, and as was mentioned in the introductory video - we don't know when exactly the next episode will come to our YouTube channel, nor can we say what the upcoming episodes might be about. Let us surprise you! Plus, you can always keep your eyes on our social media channels, as we plan to announce/tease them there a little bit ahead. 

Let us know what do you think about these videos, what did you like, and what do you think we should try to pursue and cover for one of the next episodes. We always appreciate your feedback, just as we highly appreciate all the opportunities from our partners to create these bonus content with them while we are visiting their facilities.

And one tiny disclaimer at the end which might not be necessary, but it is still better to mention it - nothing that appears in any of our episodes of this SCS On The Road series should be understood as a promise of future content for our games.

American Truck Simulator: 1.48 Open Beta

Today, we are happy to share with you that the 1.48 Open Beta branch for American Truck Simulator is now available to try and test out. If you plan on participating in this Open Beta, we ask that you please help us by reporting any bugs you may encounter in the appropriate section(s) of our official forums.

Your feedback and reports are extremely valuable to our team and we thank you in advance for taking the time to help us out. So, without further ado, let's take a look at what the 1.48 Open Beta has in store.

New Texas DLC Content

They say everything is bigger in Texas, including the updates! Our talented team has revisited the state to bring an update that fits the boot; including roads, landmarks, depots, and more. 

The equivalent of 500 real miles have been added over 8 different roads, interstates and highways; including one of the most well known interchanges in Texas. Nicknamed the 'High Five', it is one of the first five-level stack interchanges to be built in Dallas.

Keeping on the topic of five, in this update you'll be able to explore 5 new settlements. Make sure to take time to explore Greenville, Shamrock, Sharman, De Kalb and Paris.

Another big addition to this update is the addition of Texarkana; a unique city that straddles the border between Texas and Arkansas, with the state line running through the center of the city. 

We hope owners of the Texas DLC will enjoy this sizeable update. Read more about this update in one of our previous blog posts or let us know if the boot fits by heading over to our official forums

Cities in the Gallery

In the 1.46 update, we introduced the Gallery feature, a one stop shop for all your images, photo trophies, and discovered viewpoints, which maintained all the legacy functionality of the older Screenshot Manager. Today, we're excited to add a new functionality to the Gallery! 

As you journey and discover the many cities of American Truck Simulator, you'll be able to collect them under the new 'City Intros' tab. Once unlocked, you'll be able to view which cities you have visited, as well as watch and replay any of the city intro cutscenes; which are normally only seen when you first start your first HQ there. 

We hope you enjoy this new addition to our Gallery! Let us know how many cities you've already unlocked in on our social media channels. 

Washington DLC Custom City Intros

Carrying on from our previous update which introduced custom city intros for Utah & Idaho, we have now expanded these cutscenes in the Washington DLC for American Truck Simulator!

These special cutscenes appear when a player selects a starting city when creating a new profile. We hope that new players (or those restarting a new profile) will enjoy these new additions, showcasing the area where you have chosen to begin! 

We hope you enjoy this addition, and we look forward to introducing it to more states in the future.

Special Transport DLC Update

In addition to the new content and changes that are coming to American Truck Simulator in this update, we are also happy to introduce two brand new special transport routes! 

Are you ready to take on these new routes with oversized loads? You can find these unique delivery contracts between the cities of Laredo & San Antonio in Texas and Laurel & Billings in Montana. 

Think you handle it? Share with us your pictures from your Special Transport hauls on our social media channels.

Reworked Vehicle Transport Trailers

Speaking of special transport - we are happy to let you know that our vehicle team has found some spare capacity in between other of their projects to also revisit and rework trailers that our in-game economy uses to transport various types of vehicles, such as cars, SUVs, etc.

Search for these cargoes within the freight market and take them for a ride! Your nearest car dealer might need delivery of fresh new whips.

Per-State map exploration

We know how many drivers enjoy the challenging task of gaining 100% map exploration. We know this isn't easy, so we've introduced a new UI window which can be accessed by clicking on your map exploration in the top left of the world map.

Upon clicking on this, a new window will open showing you a list of the U.S States with their respective flag, and a breakdown of your exploration of each one. We hope that this will aid you in finding those missing roads in our ever-growing world of American Truck Simulator. 

Let us know how you're getting on with your map exploration in the comments below or on social media! 

Options slider ranges 

We are happy to introduce a highly requested addition to your options page when tweaking with settings in American Truck Simulator. You will now find a small box next to the sliders which displays the number which it is set to. 

We hope this makes it easier for you to not only set up multiple profiles with similar settings, but also share your settings with others. Let us know if you think this design works well by leaving feedback in the appropriate section of  our forums. 

Input wizard controls selection redesign 

We've given our input wizard for control selection a UI overhaul! Our team has been working hard to bring a simplistic but modern design to this setup window. We hope this new UI will help guide users new and old through the selection and setup process which features new icons and a clear description for each option. 

Let us know what you think of this new UI change by heading to our forums.

MOD structure changes

This change is more directed at our MOD creators in the community! We have now added the ability to create a single MOD for multiple DLC's, regardless of which DLC the user actually has.

If at least one of the subdirectories or files (*.zip) in the MOD root is named "base" or prefixed with "dlc_" then these subdirectories or files are mounted instead of the MOD root. We've also updated the SCS Workshop Uploader to reflect these changes as well. If the SCS Workshop Uploader discovers a MOD with the new structure, it performs additional checks.

We hope this new structure makes things a little easier for our talented modding community, and if you have any questions, feel free to head over to our modding wiki or forum where we can help support you. 



  • New Texas DLC Content


  • Electronic Stability Controls (Anti-Lock Braking System + Traction Control)

It's completely okay if you want to wait for the final release. But if you're interested in helping us to get there faster, we'll appreciate all of your feedback on our forum and your bug reports in this section.

Please check our modding wiki to get details pertaining to mods for the game.

If you wish to participate in the open beta, you can find this version in the public_beta branch on Steam. The way to access it is as follows: Steam client → LIBRARY → right-click on American Truck Simulator → Properties → Betas tab → public_beta → 1.48. No password is required. Sometimes you have to restart your Steam client to see the correct branch name there.
