Travel across the USA and visit many very realistic places such as California, Arizona, Oregon, and many more. The game offers an immersive experience where you have to transport goods while driving your truck, taking care that everything is done correctly, and building your empire step-by-step.

Gameplay

  • Make deliveries: As a truck driver, you will have to make deliveries to various companies and places on the map and ensure everything is done correctly. Be particularly precautious when delicate and fragile packages are under your responsibility. Once the work is done and your mission completed, you will earn rewards, money, and experience.
  • Respect the law: The law may be harsh, but still, it is the law. Make sure to drive safely and follow the rules and speed limits, or the police may come for you. Moreover, ensure that you are not delivering cargo above the weight limit as the authorities may check you at weight scales. Do what you want, but your choices have consequences.
  • Drive the truck of your dreams: American Trucks Simulator features highly detailed trucks models from iconic and official truck manufacturers. As you save money, you will be able to buy a more expensive vehicle. Keep in mind that you should always take care of your truck and cover the costs of repairs, filling up with gasoline, breakdown, etc.
  • Lots of different trailers: You will also be pleased to discover all the other available trailers from flatbeds to reefers, lowboys, dumpers, goosenecks, and lots more. The longest trailers are up to 53 ft and will test your skills and patience.
  • Build your empire: Once you acquire more and more experience, you can start to create your own business. You can fund your company, hire staff, buy garages, and build your fleet of trucks. Take care of the working conditions, and make sure they are productive and deliveries are done correctly for maximum profits.
  • Pimp your ride: As your new home, you will be able to customize your truck in various ways, including adjusting your seat, your mirror, changing the chassis, paint jobs, cabins, adding tuning accessories, or more. You can also tune lots of simulation settings such as air brake simulation, brake intensity, different types of brakes (retarder, Jake brake, trailer brake), types of transmission coming from real trucks, and lots more to discover.
  • Make your trip funnier: You will be able to listen to all the available radio stations and even listen to your favorite songs thanks to the built-in music player. Also, it would be best if you used the route adviser as your assistant during your travels.
  • Capture memories: Thanks to the photo mode and all its image editing options, you will be able to capture your favorite moments.
  • Huge device support: The game supports many different input devices, including gamepads, steering wheels, and lots more. Drive and play the way you want.
