Developer SCS Software has released two unexpectedly beautiful new minutes of sweeping vistas from its upcoming American Truck Simulator New Mexico DLC.
The map expansion was announced back in February to celebrate American Truck Simulator’s first birthday, and follows on from last year’s Arizona DLC. SCS’ version of New Mexico includes the likes of Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and even Roswell, so you can make a stop-off just in time to celebrate the 70th anniversary of that time the aliens supposedly paid a visit.
In a reach for greater realism, every rest area and truck stop in SCS’ New Mexico expansion is unique. The developer has even included a number of surprising real-world features, such as musical roads, which are designed to stop drivers from falling asleep. “At various highways around the world,” SCS explained in a recent blog post, “creative minds have altered the frequency of the grooves to produce actual melodies when a wheel is in contact with the rumble stripe. If you keep the correct speed, you will hear a real melody from your tires.”games
