ATS 1.31 update upgrades existing states

SCS has announced in their blog that the upcoming 1.31 version of American Truck Simulator will include small and large additions to the existing maps of California, Nevada and Arizona. Things might be changed around, for example like the landslide covering highway 1, but there will also be new additions, like the CA 120; Tioga Pass in California.

Good news for Euro Truck Simulator 2 owners too, as SCS has declared that we can look forward to similar updates for the existing map of ETS2 as well later this year :)

Below, some screenshots of the Tioga Pass WIP;

Another thing that will be added in the ATS 1.31 update is this beauty of a load:

The 1.31 is now also available as a Beta branch in steam :)

  • New trailers (bottom dumpers)


  • Job selection screens have new filter and cargo search elements (will be added later)
