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.

Police say a New York man made off with a bucket filled with gold flakes valued at about $1.6m (£1.2m).
The unidentified man waited until the security guards were distracted before grabbing the gold off the back of a security van parked in Manhattan.
Police believe he has fled to Florida.
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.
The USA TODAY Network release an investigative report on Sept. 23 about the dangers of aging, leak-prone natural gas pipes. The investigation finds gas explosions killed at least 135 people and injured another 600 people over the last decade, and some local gas utilities operate a high concentration of aging pipes despite years of warnings from federal safety regulators to replace them.
New research today says the nation's capital, notorious for leaking state secrets, has thousands of leaks of another sort: methane from natural gas pipelines.
More than 5,800 leaks from aging pipelines were found under Washington, D.C.'s streets by scientists from Duke University and Boston University, who dispatched a car equipped with measuring instruments across the city last January and February. Their findings appear in this week's peer-reviewed journal Environmental Science & Technology.
The researchers found 19 of the leaks had high concentrations of methane, a potent heat-trapping greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming as well as smog-forming ozone. So they got out of the car and put probes into manholes. They found 12 could have caused explosions because of their levels ? up to 10 times the threshold at which explosions can occur.
