What is Alaskan Road Truckers?

Alaskan Road Truckers sees you experience life as a trucker in the wild state of Alaska. Drive, survive, and thrive as a trucker - not a truck, as you become a true trucking legend. You’ll deliver cargo, manage your hunger, health, and temperature, and forge your own path through one of the most varied environments on the planet.

Is there a demo?
During development we had a demo and held a few playtest sessions - at the moment, we are not planning on releasing a demo as creating this would take away resources from supporting the game. We may revisit this in the future, but for now - no demo.

Is there DLC?
You can pick up the Mother Truckers Edition DLC exclusively at launch. This time-limited offer will give you a brand new badass look for your truck as well as a new trucker to play as.

Will you be updating the game?
We’ll be working on bug fixes, patches, and improvements for the game following the launch. In addition, we’ll be expanding gameplay features and adding more content over the coming months.

Do you have licensed trucks?
At the moment we do not as this requires agreements with the license holders. However, we would love to add more official trucks, trailers, and more to the game. If you have an idea of who to add - let us, and them, know, we’d love to get talking!

When is Alaskan Road Truckers coming to Console?
We'll have an announcement about the console release very soon. Stay tuned!

Setting up your Steering Wheel

Getting your steering wheel set up correctly with Alaskan Road Truckers will require a few simple steps.

  1. No matter which steering wheel you use, you will need to download and install the Logitech G-Hub application[]. If this is already installed, please ensure you have the latest update for it.

  2. Connect your steering wheel before starting the game in order for the game to correctly detect it on launch.

  3. In-game, go to Options > Controls > Steering Wheel.

  4. In the first section, enter:
    Wheel Angle - the maximum total rotation value of your steering wheel (900 in most cases)
    Force Feedback strength
    Your preferred Force Feedback Type

  5. In the second section, set your basic control functions. To do this, first select None, and then:
    For the Steer option - turn the steering wheel
    For the Throttle, Brake and Clutch options, press the corresponding pedal

  6. If you want to drive in semi-automatic transmission mode, set the Gear Up and Gear Down functions to the steering wheel controls or buttons, respectively. You must also set the Gearbox Type to Semi-automatic by going to Options > Gameplay > Gearbox Mode.

  7. If you have a manual shifter and want to drive in advanced manual transmission mode then assign each gear from 1-6 by setting the shifter to the appropriate position.
    Additionally, you will need to set Range and Splitter to one of your steering wheel buttons.
    The Range function changes the gear layers. When activated, for example gear 1 will change to gear 5, and gear 2 will change to gear 6.
    The Splitter function turns on half gears.
    You'll also need to set the Gearbox Type to Manual by going to Options > Gameplay > Gearbox Mode.

  8. You can also assign various options such as handbrake, engine on/off and others if your steering wheel has additional buttons. Use the slider to the right to see more functions.

Additional Steering Wheel Settings

  1. The steering wheel is only for driving the truck, you cannot use it to turn the camera and move when outside. You must use the steering wheel in combination with a controller or keyboard + mouse. To make first-person driving more comfortable, you can switch on the First Person Camera Prediction option in Settings -> Controls -> Camera. This will make the camera follow your wheel turns at lower speeds.
  2. To reverse the truck in automatic gearbox mode, press and hold the brake pedal when the gearbox is in the neutral position.

  3. Remember that each button can only be assigned to one unique function.

  4. Some steering wheel parameters, such as Force Feedback, brake strength and others can be directly set in the application that supports your steering wheel.

Technical Issues

My save isn’t working
On the main menu choose Show Backup Saves, then load the backup save. You’ll start from the end of the last job you completed.

Note this will only work if you have completed a job - if you have yet to finish a job, no backup save will be created.

FPS Issues
We are working on performance optimization and will continue to optimize the game post-launch. To ensure that it’s not a technical issue, however, please ensure you check the following:
Make sure that your graphics drivers are up to date.
