American Truck Simulator New Mexico DLC Release Date Announced


American Truck Simulator has been in urgent need of more content for a while now and SCS Software is about to deliver. The New Mexico DLC Release Date has been set for November 9th. A new blog post revealed the date, its price, as well as the Steam product page for the truck simulator’s addon.

New Mexico DLC

The New Mexico DLC has been in the works for a while now and is hitting digital store shelves sooner than I had anticipated. Next Thursday, the DLC will go on sale via Steam for a mere USD $ 11.99, € 11.99, £ 8.99. SCS Software has a habit of delivering high quality DLC for very reasonable prices, and the New Mexico DLC looks to continue this trend.

Discover the subtle beauty of the New Mexico landscape. Its nickname – “Land of Enchantment” – fits perfectly. A lot of unique natural scenery will accompany you during all hauls, two trips will never feel the same.

Drive through urbanized areas like Albuquerque, sparsely populated trading posts, rest stops in the middle of the desert, lush forests and mountain ranges. New Mexico has a lot to offer in terms of landscape variety. Cross Rio Grande, visit Carson National Forest, Baylor Peak, Pyramid Rock and other natural landmarks.

While New Mexico does feature some forested areas, personally, I can’t wait for American Truck Simulator to move out of the desert states. Colorado or Oregon would make beautiful locations to explore, in my opinion.

Key Features

New Mexico will bring along not just a new state to transport cargo to, but also several improvements to the core game.

  • Over 4 thousand miles of new in-game roads
  • 14 major cities, including Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Roswell
  • 11 custom rest/truck stops for parking and refueling
  • 600+ completely new 3D graphics assets
  • Complex and realistic custom-built junctions and Interstate interchanges
  • 8 new company docks and industries
  • Unique landmarks both natural and man-made
  • New Mexico achievements to unlock

Having recently purchased an Oculus Rift, this seems to be the perfect time to get back behind the wheel of my big rig. With winter coming to Canada, I look forward to experiencing virtual heat waves in New Mexico very soon!
