One of the best parts of Truck Simulator is digital tourism, and this week developers at SCS Software delivered a double dose of geography lessons from American Truck Simulator’s upcoming Texas and Montana DLC packs. If you want to know the length of the Texas coastline on the Gulf of Mexico as part of your video game marketing, the developers have you covered.
This length is 367 miles, by the way. The last blog post on Texas dives into some of the cities along the state’s coastline. For example, Corpus Christi has a view of the “Texas State Aquarium and the USS Lexington, which was one of the largest aircraft carriers of the 1920s. Oh, and if you’re wondering about the city’s unique name, it comes from ecclesiastical Latin, meaning “body of Christ”, and it was given here in 1519 on the feast day of Corpus Christi.We thought you might want to know!
You are right, SCS Software, I did want to know. And what about Montana? In this blog, this is the town of Great Falls, home to 60,000 people and known as the “Electric Town” because of “its many dams and powerhouses”. You can also expect to see “monuments such as the art museum, several churches and banks”.
I say this without any irony: I can’t wait to see these many churches and banks. America is all about driving through small towns made up almost exclusively of multiple churches and banks, and ATS is the only game that dares to match reality.
Free update 1.44 for ATS and Euro Truck Simulator 2 is now in beta and introduces new features such as mod refunds. You might want to take the time to try out this update, as there is still no release date for the Montana or Texas DLC just yet. However, there are plenty of truck games to check out in the meantime.
