There’s a new DLC on the way for Spintires: Mudrunnner that will excite vintage truck fans. Called the Old-Timers DLC, it’s bringing with it some old school metal and a new map.
The map, called Rocky Hills, adds another American location to the game. This joins the two already available with the American Wilds expansion. However, you don’t need the expansion in order to enjoy the map.
Focus Home Interactive (FHI) doesn’t mention where in the US the Rocky Hills map is. But one of the new trucks sports a vintage Utah license plate. Given the tall pine trees and rocky landscape, northern Utah does seem likely. Also, the surrounding area of Wyoming, Idaho, and Colorado all are possibilities as well.
As for the trucks, both are real models instead of the fantasy vehicles that make up a majority of the game. These will join the list of seven licensed vehicles already in the game.
The first up is the 1957 Chevrolet NAPCO 3100. Meant as a scout vehicle it’s fairly small and should conquer the terrain with ease. It also has several attachments to outfit it for whatever duty you want to use it for.
There are even two unique attachments for the 3100. For hauling cargo there’s a loaded log cart that’s unique to the Rocky Hills map. There’s also a scout trailer that’s available on all the maps to aid in exploration.
Power for 3100 comes from a 4.6-liter V6 with an output of around 185hp. However, the truck’s real claim to fame is the 4WD system. Back in the 1950s GM didn’t offer its pickups as 4x4s from the factory. Instead, the buyer would need to order the truck with a conversion courtesy of Northwestern Auto Parts Company (NAPCO). This truck sports that system and should work well in the mud.
The second truck is the GMC DW950 and is definitely a workhorse. With a 7.0-liter Detroit Diesel 6-71 turbodiesel under the hood, it packs a serious punch. With 236hp and a whopping 630lbft of torque, it will make short work of hauling logs.
To help with the hauling duty, it also comes with several add-ons as well. FHI even dubs it the “king of attachments” and says you can customize the truck to meet any of your needs.
The Old-Timers DLC will launch on April 30 for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. Even better, it will be available to players completely free of charge as well.
