Can’t Wait for Colorado

co_flag It’s been a while since I’ve paid American Truck Simulator some love here on my blog.  That doesn’t mean I haven’t been enjoying grinding the gears throughout Idaho.  The Idaho DLC was released a few weeks ago and in my opinion, it’s one of the best releases I’ve seen for the trucking simulator franchise.  As a result, I’m really excited to see what SCS Software provides to us in the upcoming Colorado DLC. 

The Colorado DLC has been highly anticipated by myself for many reasons.  First, I live here.  I’ve called Colorado home since ‘98 and have driven all over the state in the 22 years I’ve lived here.  Second, (if done right) I believe Colorado will offer a very unique driving experience which we’ve not seen in the previous state DLC releases.  While many of us ATS fans have had the pleasure of driving in Colorado via the Coast to Coast map mod, I believe the official SCS version will blow us all away. 

From all evidence available via the communications SCS has provided to us, they truly understand how important Colorado is both in the Midwest, the US and North America.  Regardless if you’re driving I-25, I-70, I-76 or the busy stretch of US 287, I believe the Colorado DLC will provide many challenges and a whole lot of fun. 

What’s Next

Of course, ATS always has us asking “What’s Next” as for map DLC releases for American Truck Simulator.  I’ve often tried speculating, guessing or whatever you might want to call it as to which US state will appear on the radar.  For me personally, Texas (my birth state) is also very high on my radar, but could Texas be next?  Or will SCS continue their north expansion out of Colorado and work on Wyoming/Montana?  I’m sure SCS has a clear plan and more should be known once Colorado has been released. 

Until then, I’ll continue exploring Idaho and make my way towards Utah as I believe one of the first drives I’d like to take once Colorado drops is from Utah to Denver across I-70. 

Until next time…

Happy Trucking!!!

Colorful Colorado on the Horizon

Just a few days ago, SCS Software announced that the US State of Colorado would be the next DLC to release for American Truck Simulator.  From their announcement on 26 March, SCS Software has been working on the Colorado DLC at full-capacity in parallel with the Idaho DLC.  The release date is unknown, but the announcement mentioned “a few months after the release of Idaho, towards the end of the year.”  This is great news!  If SCS has done their homework, then I-70 should be an absolute joy to drive from Utah through Colorado and over the high mountain passes.  Not to mention the beautiful Glenwood Canyon. 

What will be next?  Will we see SCS head north from Colorado to drop in Wyoming, then Montana?  Or will they head east from New Mexico and bring us the Lone Star State of Texas?  Only SCS knows the answer to this. 

Until next time…

Happy Trucking!
