American Truck Simulator used Google Maps

Real roads, fake trucks

I’ve always been fascinated by Euro Truck Simulator, but never jumped in because, pff, who wants to drive in Europe? This is America; we drive on American roads here and we speak American.

As it turns out, American Truck Simulator will be very true to life. The studio used Google Maps to create the world, so driving actual routes, like San Francisco to Los Angeles, is possible. I can’t wait for the mod that basically recreates Desert Bus in HD.
