After several months of waiting, Focus Home Interactive (FHI) has pulled the cover off its upcoming expansion for Spintires: Mudrunner. Billed as American Wilds, it certainly looks promising.
We first heard about the expansion back in early February. At that time, it was merely a few lines in an earning report though. Shortly after that at the company’s “What’s Next” event, it confirmed an expansion was on the horizon.
Since then news slowly trickled in with various DLC announcements and community updates. Now with the August update, we have a better idea of what to expect for Wilds.
The biggest addition is licensed vehicles. According to the announcement some of the brands included are Ford, Chevrolet, Hummer, Freightliner, and Western Star. Altogether nine licensed vehicles will make their way into the game.
Currently, we only know three of the vehicles. These include the Hummer H1, Western Star 4900 or 6900, and a Freightliner Classic. The other six are still a mystery but given the brands, there is plenty to choose from.
Sadly the brand missing from this is Jeep. However, if the expansion does well we could see old Wranglers in no time.
As for the maps, two new locations will find their way into Wilds. According to FHI, they both are based off Montana, North Dakota, and Minnesota. It’s not exactly the best variety, but certainly a welcomed addition.
Altogether, the expansion will bring the game’s total vehicle count to over 30. Also, the add-ons will now top 60 and the map count will clock in at 21.
With any luck, all of this content will also carry over to the recently announced Mudrunner 2 as well.
There’s no release date yet for American Wilds, but FHI does say it’ll be available this fall. It will also make its way onto PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
We will keep you up to date as FHI reveals more features. With community updates typically coming near month’s end, we hopefully will know more by September 30.
