Missouri - Nature in General

Welcome to the Show-Me State! The Missouri DLC is still under construction for American Truck Simulator, but we have another preview for our #BestCommunityEver of what the state will look like. This time, we want to show you the beautiful nature and landscape through which you will be hauling your cargo.

From the rugged hills of the Ozark Mountains to the rolling prairies of the Great Plains, the state offers a variety of stunning scenery. You will come across the "Ozarks" when driving through the southern part of Missouri, although this mountainous terrain, renowned for its deep valleys, clear streams, and picturesque hills, almost reaches the cities of Columbia or St. Louis, both situated closer to the middle of the state. The southern part of the state is also home to the Mark Twain National Forest, named after the renowned author born in Missouri.

The whole eastern border of the Show-Me State is made up of the Mississippi River, the second-longest river in North America. It separates Missouri from three states - mostly Illinois, but on a short part of the southeastern border also from Kentucky and Tennessee. Another important waterway is the Missouri River, which connects the west and east of the state as it runs through both Kansas City and St. Louis.

Northern and western Missouri feature rolling prairies and grasslands, as they are part of the larger Great Plains region. This area is almost the direct opposite of the southern mountainous landscape with lush oak-hickory forests. But that is not all. Missouri boasts plenty of other beautiful natural areas such as the Ha Ha Tonka State Park, Elephant Rocks State Park, and Roaring River State Park. As you traverse the state's highways and byways, you will discover how much it has to offer!

We hope you have enjoyed this preview of Missouri's beautiful and peaceful landscape. We surely cannot wait to explore it once the DLC is released! If you want to show us that you are also looking forward to trucking in this map expansion, don't forget to add it to your Steam Wishlist!
