In a recent blog post, we released a gameplay video from our up and coming Colorado DLC for American Truck Simulator, which showcased a beautiful drive from Denver to Grand Junction. But, did you notice something about the truck we were driving?
Dedicated fans who have played our truck simulator titles as far back as the early 2000s may have recognized that the Kenworth W900 was sporting a familiar paint job from one of our earlier titles, Hard Truck: 18 Wheels of Steel.
Believe it or not, it has been 18 years since we released Hard Truck: 18 Wheels of Steel (August 2002), but that is not all. Denver, Colorado was also the starting location for all new truckers beginning their trucking life in Hard Truck: 18 Wheels of Steel. It’s amazing to see how far we’ve come and we are excited to once again re-visit Denver in our current American Truck Simulator title.
To celebrate this occasion, we wanted to reward our community with the Hard Truck Tribute Paint Job. This iconic flames design was available for the Kenworth W900 in Hard Truck: 18 Wheels of Steel and was a popular design among many drivers.
