On PC there's quite a number of "[blank] simulator" kind of games. Among the games that fall into that genre, very few are actually considered worth playing. One of these is the Euro Truck Simulator franchise. While in appearance it would look like one of the countless bland simulator games out there, Euro Truck Simulator revealed itself to be acclaimed by both public and critics, so much that the fans demanded an American set equivalent. Well, there's no more need to wish as American Truck Simulator will be available in stores on February 3, 2016 after being announced earlier this year.

As the developers say in the announcement, the contents included in the base game will be only the beginning. At release day, the game will feature few trucks and the state of California as playable. Their intention is to eventually cover the entire United States while at the same time chasing every American truck producer in order to get a license to add their machines to the game.

American Truck Simulator will also include the recently introduce World of Trucks online features that premiered in Euro Truck Simulator 2. World of Trucks allows players to get contracts via the online portal, share photos from the game with the community, pick our your favorites and is an area of focus for SCS Software going forward.

The PC specs, while not final, are low enough to allow almost any PC to play the game.

Minimum Requirements:
: Windows 7 64-bit
Processor: Dual core CPU 2.4 GHz
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: GeForce GTS 450-class (Intel HD 4000)

Many fans are waiting with anticipation the release of American Truck Simulator. The developer promises that the already successful game system used in Euro Truck Simulator 2 has been expanded with new features in its American counterpart. They also recently released a short soundscape video that you can list to below:

American Truck Simulator will hit phisical and digital stores on February 3 2016. There's at the moment no information on its price tag.
