American Truck Simulator is releasing early of all things, arriving this very day some hours before midnight CET. That's what you get when you shell out for private haulage, I suppose.
"We were thinking of unleashing the game at midnight Prague time," reads the SCS blog. "However, going through all the release process late at night and staying on alert for a while after the game gets out to see if no hot-fixing is needed immediately takes some hours. The release crew would not get to bed before 4 am."
Rather than fall asleep at their keyboards, the team have opted to roll out at a civilised time. They're not sure exactly how long the process will take, but even us Europeans will get to log a few hours tonight. Euro Truck Simulator veteran Andy was big on its American cousin in our review, but we're expecting it to come into its own as additional, less desert-y states and new trucks are added.
