American Truck Simulator Corporate Cooperation
SCS Software company effort to secure official licenses of trucks to put into their games continues, now their focus is on Northern America. Courting the truck manufacturers - getting their attention and reaching the decision makers - is really not easy at all for a small company like SCS coming from outside of the transportation industry.
There is a little photo report on SCS Blog news. They have created a special demo based off an alpha build of American Truck Simulator for their corporate event, and they also tried to bounce it off the public to see the reaction.

Oslo happens to be one of the largest urban agglomerations featured in Scandinavia DLC, in fact Oslo and the surrounding areas is possibly the largest city SCS have built so far in Euro Truck Simulator 2. SCS are using new types of junctions and intersections extensively in Scandinavia, in this particular case to connect the city to the large port that incorporates a ferry terminal. LOOK AT HERE
