American Truck Simulator: Trailer News Part 1
We are working hard on the new Update 1.35 for both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator. It’s shaping up to be one of the biggest updates ever. We plan for an extensive open beta period, but there is still a lot of internal testing and tweaking left to do before we reach that stage. A series of upcoming blog posts will focus on key new features and new content.
In today’s post, we want to focus on new types of trailers and loads coming to American Truck Simulator with Update 1.35. The new additions will be very handy in the Pacific Northwest!
Chip van trailers are coming to service the woodworking industry especially in Oregon and in our upcoming Washington state map expansion. They will be available with three body variants: van, moving floor, and iconic belly van. Chip van trailers are ownable and will be available to haul from the freight market. We also plan to use them to transport other suitable loads in other industries and states.
Driving towards Washington State, you will have a chance to meet a piggyback truck transport consisting of Kenworth T680s. The new Kenworth truck manufacturing plant special prefab will produce plenty of trucks to deliver to truck dealers all around the game world. This new unique structure deserves its own topic in the near future, so we’ll come back to it again.
B-double trailers are another highly requested type of trailer we’ve created for this update. You will find them on the roads of Oregon and Washington where they are legal. By combining different types of trailers, a huge number of possible B-double combinations is possible. They are spectacular to look at, but towing them will be a new challenge for all our drivers.
The players of ETS2 can look forward to an upcoming blog post concentrating on new trailer additions for their game, too!
