About American Truck Simulator

About this game

Developed and published by SCS Software.

Drive through America and get a feel of how life as a truck driver is with American Truck Simulator!

Explore American Landscapes

Use your truck and drive through numerous American landscapes! Drive through the sunny lands of California, the desert streets of Nevada, and the beautiful scenery of Arizona with a free DLC! Get other states — New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Idaho, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Texas, the upcoming Oklahoma, and new ones coming in the future — through DLC to cover even more of the United States! 

Load, Drive, and Deliver

Carry your cargo from one location to another! Choose different cargoes to deliver, including food, machinery, and hazards as you go about your work!

Customise Your Truck

Drive with models officially licensed from actual truck manufacturers for true-to-life graphics, aesthetics, and managing! Make your truck yours by adjusting your seat, mirrors, and your head positioning to get the best view of the USA landscape and the road.

Different Trailers for Different Difficulties

Use all sorts of trailers as you deliver throughout America! From reefers to flatbeds, from dumpers to lowboys and goosenecks, there are a lot of them for you to experiment with and try your hand at! The largest one, up to 53ft, will test your skill and patience during your quest!

Drive Safely

Whilst you deliver your cargo, don't forget to drive safely and follow the law — you'll receive a fine if you aren't careful throughout your jobs! You'll need to be careful with following the rules, such as the speed limit and not delivering overweight cargo, as you might be checked at the scales!

Grow Your Own Company

Live the life of a truck driver and earn enough money to run your own company! Get a fleet of trucks, buy garages, get new drivers to do the driving for you, and manage your company to get as much profit as possible!

ATS is realistic, relaxing, and thorougly enjotable.

American Truck Simulator Is Fantastic!
Verified purchase
For us yanks, ATS is a great compliment to the already-great ETS2. The graphics, realism, physics, and game-play is awesome. The only thing frustrating for me is the lack of states to travel. While the land travel is vast in ETS2, ATS has three states we can go to, at this time. Considering how well received the game has been, I'm hoping SCS will build up a good-sized mapping team and realease more map DLCs, a lot more often. Other than that, this is a really amazing game. All that said, while I do appreciate all the hard work put into the re-scale, I would have preferred the introduction of other states. Of course, that's just my opinion.
