American Truck Simulator's New Mexico DLC hits the road next week
by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe
American Truck Simulator players will soon be able to haul their loads in and across a brand new U.S. state heading to the game. SCS Software announced today that it is releasing the much anticipated New Mexico map expansion to the simulator title next week.
New Mexico will be joining the game's currently available states of California, Nevada, and Arizona. However, this will be the game's first paid map expansion, arriving as a DLC pack.
Players will be driving across highly varied areas in the expansion, from urban regions, deserts, and mountain ranges, to lush forests. There will also be familiar landmarks to observe while hauling goods, including but not limited to Rio Grande, Carson National Forest, Baylor Peak, and Pyramid Rock.
A list of features provided by the developer that highlights major aspects included in the DLC can be seen below:
However, something that is not mentioned in the list, but may still be quite interesting, is the Musical Road situated between Albuquerque and Tijeras that will play the melody of America the Beautiful when players drive over it, just like in real life.
American Truck Simulator's New Mexico DLC map expansion is slated to arrive on November 9 for PC with a price tag of $11.99.

ALAMOGORDO, N.M. ? What some have called the worst video game ever made has fetched thousands of dollars for a New Mexico city.
An old "E.T. The Extraterrestrial" game cartridge drew the highest bid among 100 Atari games auctioned on eBay by Alamogordo officials.
The games were part of a cache of some 800 Atari video games buried more than 30 years ago in a landfill and dug up in April.
Joe Lewandowski, a consultant for the film companies that documented the dig, says the online auction, which ended Thursday, generated $37,000.
The "E.T." game, still in its original box, sold for $1,537.
Atari reportedly buried the 1982 game in after it was dubbed a flop.
Alamogordo owns the cartridges because they came from the city's landfill.
A police officer from Espanola, New Mexico, says he captured a ghost on camera while on duty. :iiam:
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. ?An Albuquerque man was being held in the Bernalillo County Jail Tuesday after police said he drove a stolen electric shopping cart to meet with this probation officer.
Court Documents say Michael Johnson, 18, arrived to meet with his probation officer on Monday at the Metropolitan Courthouse on an electric shopping cart from Walmart.
The probation officer asked Johnson where he got the cart, to which Johnson said he ?took it from the Walmart on San Mateo and Zuni,? the documents say.
Johnson was arrested and charged with larceny and receiving stolen property. He violated his probation when he was arrested and is being held on a $500 bond.
Albuquerque police made the arrest and said Tuesday that the cart could have been put to better use.
?The cart was worth over $1,800, and certainly it could have been used by those who needed it more than this man,? APD spokesman Tanner Tixier said.
A New Mexico man's purchase of a $4 bottle at a flea market could turn into a $5,000 or more pay day thanks to the bottle's ties with Coca-Cola's past.
Jim Vergo, of Albuquerque, said the aged bottle's label featuring coca leaves and the words "wine coca" caught his attention while he was shopping at a local market last fall.
"It was embossed with the name Pemberton," Vergo said in a statement released by Heritage Auctions. "I'm not a big Coca-Cola collector so it wasn't until I got home that I Googled and saw that it was Dr. Pemberton, the creator of Coca-Cola."
Vergo's flea market find was one of only three bottles known to be in existence dating back to the original roots of what the world now knows as Coca-Cola, or Coke, soft drinks.
What makes Vergo's purchase even more significant is that the bottle, which dates back to the 1880s, has 90 percent of the original label intact.
"A couple of these bottles have been known to exist but none have ever been found with a label," Noah Fleisher, Heritage's director of public relations, told ABC News. "It's the most intact and earliest incarnation of what would become Coca-Cola."
The Dallas-based Heritage Auctions is set to auction off Vergo's bottle on Saturday, May 24. It is expected to fetch at least $5,000.
