Nebraska - Cities

Today we're happy to share with you a preview into some of the cities you will be able to visit, and deliver cargo to in our upcoming Nebraska DLC for American Truck Simulator. Each one has their own unique character about them, which our team has worked hard to try best recreate in this map expansion. Let's take a look at some of them, shall we?

Grand Island

Situated in the heart of the state, Grand Island is a vibrant city with a small town charm, home to a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Here you'll find a unique blend of urban amenities, including a marketplace where many folks from neighbouring States travel to visit. From its bustling downtown area filled with shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions to its picturesque parks and scenic riverfront, there is something for everyone here. 

Why not take a moment to enjoy the scenery and check out Landmarks such as The Hall County Courthouse, City of Grand Island Townhall and more. You will be also able to visit one of the most famous Truck Stops around, best known for its unique displays featuring a racing car, a tank and more. 

Located in the State's Agriculture Region, Grand Island is also known for its fertile soil and production of crops such as corn, soybeans and wheat. Around the city, you'll find a variety of different industries, including a large Food Processing Plant which you'll be able delivery to and from.

Grand Island also has a history with Highways, being the second city in the United States to build a concrete roadway in 1915! With its proximity to the I-80, it surely is a must stop destination for any traveller young or old.


Located in Northeastern Nebraska, Norfolk as a hub for agriculture and manufacturing. One such depot you'll be able to deliver jobs to and from is the Nucor Steel factory, located North of the city. 

Here you can also find landmarks like the Elkhorn Valley Museum and the Memorial Park. Norfolk's welcoming atmosphere and diverse attractions make it an ideal stopover for truckers in the area. 

Don't forget to stop by the Karl Stefan Memorial Field Airport, named after a Karl Stefan who was originally born in the Czech Republic, who immigrated with his parents to Nebraska in 1885, and eventually moved to Norfolk in 1909. 


Beckoning truckers with a unique mix of industry and charm, Columbus is known for its robust manufacturing and agricultural sectors. In the east of the city, you'll find a large ADM industrial zone, which is almost as big as another city! Here you'll be able to find several different depots to deliver to and from. 

On your travels, you'll surely come across the Platte river, which stretches for over 1,050 miles. Other notetable landmarks in the area include the War Memorial, which honours the men and women who gave their lives. 

North Platte 

Located North of the River Platte near the I-80, this city is somewhat similar to Grand Island. Here you can find the the largest railroad classification yard in the world! If you want to learn specifically more about this industry, check out our recent blog here

This city is surrounded by fields, used for agriculture of all kinds. You may even spot quite a few Sandhills on your travels, a region of grass-covered, stabilized sand dunes in the High Plains. They really are quite unique, and make for a certainly interesting drive through the area.

There will also be plenty of Landmarks to discover, from memorials to several significant buildings in the city. Be sure to look out for them! 

Our teams hope they have been able to capture the spirit and charm of each city represented here. We hope that you'll take the time to check out all the cities of Nebraska when it is made available to you. We look forward to sharing more on the development of this DLC for American Truck Simulator, in the mean time, if you like what you see, be sure to add Nebraska to your Steam Wishlist!
