American Truck Simulator Released Early!

 SCS Software, the developers of the Euro Truck Simulator games announced last year that they would be bringing the series to the highways of the USA!

Well, they have done just that with American Truck Simulator, and guess what, they even brought it to us one day early!  Was released and went live on February 2nd, 2015, you can now purchase the gave via Steam for only $19.99!

With their catch phrase "Its not driving, Its Trucking!" American Truck Simulator brings you the launch locations of California and Nevada.  You will be able to travel through the real life area of the two states and earn some in game cash at that same time to eventually purchase your own truck and create your own truck fleet!

You may be thinking, Truck Simulator that's boring or not fun... but actually some may really enjoy it or even say its relaxing.  I actually do own and have played the Euro Truck Simulator 2 game and I can honestly say that its really fun.  There are many who may not think so, but actually getting to check out locations that are actually real places is cool.  Getting to drive on the highways, something that many would not be able to do in real life is cool as well.  I for one am looking forward to purchasing the game and giving the American Truck Simulator a try.  You never know we could even make a delivery to EVGA in game!

So, let us know what you thoughts are on these types of driving simulator games?  Any plans on owning the game? Would you ever play it or a similar game?  Let us know if the comment section below!

The Division Beta Test Extended

With The Division Beta test in full swing the last few days, there has been time to get a first glimpse of what is to come. The Beta test began started on January 29th, and was set to be close January 31st. But the folks over at Ubisoft have granted players a couple extra days to get a chance to play and gain some further experience in game. At the same time of course, getting data on the test to improve and fix any issues that the game may have. The new Beta end date is set to February 2nd!

I, along with many others were able to get access to the Beta test. At first glance it is a really nice looking environment and gameplay. The storyline is quite interesting as well. It engages the player right off the bat with its intro and instructions on the mechanics of the UI.

If you are able to get a chance to join in this Beta or the next, then I would definitely suggest checking it out. At this point, it is a bit early to recommend a pre-order.

Let us know what if you were able to get a chance to join in the Beta and your thought about the game, in the comment section below.
