Washington Landscapes for ATS
If you have ever had the chance to visit Washington State in the USA, you may have noticed that almost everywhere you go you will see green, even while driving through the city areas. The state is even nicknamed the 'Evergreen State' and has the Green Darner Dragonfly as their state insect mascot.
Our team has been focusing on re-creating these forests and landscapes to bring them as close as possible to their real-world counterparts which you can see from this gallery of screenshots.
From Hemlocks to Firs to Spruces, many trees can be found almost anywhere you turn in Washington State. In fact, the number of trees is so high that Rock Paper Shotgun's Senior Editor Alec Meer mentioned them 20 times in their recent article, which showcased an exclusive early look at our upcoming map expansion.
Just as impressive as the forests are the views you will come across while driving. With new horizon models, we are sure that we will be seeing a lot more drivers using the in-game photo studio to share pictures from their travels.
