Valentines delivery time

It’s time for the annual Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator Valentines event again. This time your personal goal requires 14 finished deliveries of Valentines Presents cargo in order to qualify for the World of Trucks Achievement and get a nice little cabin item.

The formal rules are as follows:
Using External Contracts, with a World of Trucks-connected profile in Euro Truck Simulator 2, American Truck Simulator or both, the community goal is to achieve 600,000 deliveries of Valentine Presents cargo, from any city in any trucking territory.

When a player completes 14 deliveries of Valentine Presents cargo across any trucking territories in either game, it will complete their personal goal.


  • Personal: Players that complete 14 or more deliveries of Valentine Presents cargo will gain a unique World of Trucks Achievement as well as a Winged Heart cabin item as a Steam inventory item for Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator.
  • Community: When the community goal of achieving 600,000 deliveries of Valentine Presents cargo from any city is met and if the player has also achieved their personal goal, then they will receive a 
  • Trucker’s Rose hanging item as a Steam inventory item for their cabin.

In order to qualify for any community reward, you must complete at least your personal goal in Euro Truck Simulator 2, American Truck Simulator or both. Each reward will be a Steam inventory item for both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator. Once completed, claim your reward in the Events page on your World of Trucks profile.

The event will be concluded on Sunday the 18th of February at 23:59 UTC.

Christmas deliveries

It is Christmas time again, which means it is also time for the annual tradition of hauling Christmas gifts in Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator.

This year SCS Software has freshened up the tradition a bit by adding a whole new dimension to it. Literally another dimension. Because this time good are to be transported to and from Santa’s Winterland itself by the means of traversing through one of the many dimensional portals strategically put up on rest stops, refueling points and the likes.

No, you don’t have to hit 88 mph to make the dimensional jump. Only go to one of the designated portals.

The Winterland itself is as the name hints a very wintery place indeed with lots of snow and Christmas feeling. Also watch out, the roads are not only looking snowy – they make for snow driving when it comes to road grip too.

Driving through a winter wonderland.
Arriving to the Christmas market with a truck full of goodies.

As usual goods deliveries made in ETS2 and ATS add up together, so if you have both games you don’t have to do all the work twice in order to get the achievements and rewards for both.

Halloween hauling

It’s that spooky time of the year again and as is tradition, SCS Software’s yearly Halloween event is running in both American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2.

As usual if you own both games the Halloween deliveries you do in both games add up together, so you don’t have to do the full thirteen deliveries in both.

Scary is the word. Getting a red light and an approaching train at once is not always the best thing to happen.

Next stop Arkansas

Somewhat surprisingly SCS Software has now revealed the latest American Truck Simulator map DLC in their production pipeline. And it is somewhat surprising because it turned out to be Arkansas. It seems the two Dakotas will have to wait a bit longer.

In my personal opinion I think going with Arkansas after Nebraska makes sense in that it moves us a bit further east. I’m sure there are very nice things to discover in both South and North Dakota too, but there is a risk that it becomes a little too much midwest at once.

New Volvo in American Truck Simulator

There has been added yet another new driveable truck in American Truck Simulator. This time it is the new Volvo VNL.

The new models include the VNL 860, 740, and 300, with the 860 standing in the spotlight as the flagship and most advanced model of the three, offering the highest standard for the most demanding of truckers. And as usual they come with a range of possible customizations to both the exterior and the interior.

ATS celebrates Kenworth Trucks centennial

The Kenworth Truck Company was founded in 1923 and are celebrating 100 years as a truck manufacturer! And since their trucks have been in American Truck Simulator ever since the game was released it is understandable that SCS Software is joining in the celebrations.

In particular this is done by releasing a new, special anniversary edition of the classic looking Kenworth W900 in the game, based on the real-life special edition from Kenworth.

This in turn also means that SCS took the time to go back and remodel the old standard versions of the W900 as well so that their visuals would be brought up to today’s standard in the game. They were after all in the game from release, so they did have a couple of years under their belts by now.

Taking the new truck for a test drive

Since SCS added the Western Star 5700XE model to American Truck Simulator and it happened to coincide with me being a bit bored, I decided it was time for an addition to the stable.

For now it’s the day cab version, so I guess it’s no sleeping in it. It’s a pretty good hauler though.

My first trips all took place in Oregon before going north a bit. Sometimes I find myself longing a bit for the somewhat greener pastures up north.

And what could be better than finding oneself driving along the Olympia peninsula at sunrise with a big load of explosives in tow?

Ending the tour with a nice ferry jump over the sound. It was actually the first time I used that route so all new for me.

New Truck for ATS

With the latest patch for American Truck Simulator there’s also a new truck coming. The Western Star 5700XE.

It comes in three different main types – a day cab, the 54″ High Roof Stratosphere and the 82″ Ultra High Roof Stratosphere. Chassis available are short, medium and long versions in 6×2 and 6×4. The engines are Detroit Diesels, which offers the options of DD13, DD15 and DD16 up to 600HP.

Future Map DLCs for ATS

SCS Software has now publicly announced both of their ongoing map projects for American Truck Simulator.

Already earlier they had announced that now when the big Texas map DLC has been successfully launched, it is time for neighbouring Oklahoma. And maybe not all that surprising the state coming thereafter will be Kansas.
