As you may know, every update brings excitement and new adventures for players of American Truck Simulator. With the upcoming 1.49 update, we are introducing an awesome addition that will allow players to delve into an unmarked area like never before. Hidden within the vast landscape of Washington, a realistic recreation of the PACCAR Technical Center awaits discovery!

For years, the PACCAR Technical Center has been the epicenter of innovation and development for renowned truck manufacturers, Kenworth and Peterbilt. This facility has been instrumental in testing trucks, powertrains, technologies, and more, and it's where the giants of the trucking industry push the boundaries of what's possible, creating the next generation of iconic trucks.

On our recent trips to the United States, we were fortunate to receive exclusive invitations from PACCAR to visit their Technical Center. While our primary purpose was to conduct sound recording sessions and 3D scanning of both legendary and new truck models, during our interactions with the team at PACCAR, a shared vision emerged. We realized that bringing the PACCAR Technical Center experience to ATS players would be a fantastic opportunity as we wanted to offer players the chance to explore this testing ground, just as we did. And so, with a shared passion for trucking, we set out to recreate this remarkable place in the ATS universe.

In the upcoming ATS 1.49 update, you will have the chance to experience the PACCAR Technical Center firsthand. This realistic 1:1 recreation will offer a glimpse into the world of truck development, and even though the area won't be readily visible on the in-game map and UI, it will be waiting for curious players to discover. But rest assured, intrepid truckers will quickly uncover this hidden treasure once the update lands on Steam.

While the entire area has plenty of interesting bits to explore, we’ve decided to add an extra layer of excitement, a small Easter egg will be parked within the PACCAR Technical Center itself. We challenge you to keep your eyes peeled and see if you can spot this surprise.

We can’t wait to show you more content that is coming with the 1.49 update over the upcoming weeks.
