Prepare to embark upon a train journey amidst the post-apocalyptic events of The Final Station, a survival title where a one-way ticket to death is all but guaranteed for many. Those wishing to board will now find that the price tag has been removed on Xbox One, courtesy of the Games With Gold scheme. Can you make the decisions that matter and endure the tribulations of this deadly adventure?
Essentially, the end of days has arrived, with you clinging on to try and survive for as long as you can up against the hordes of the infected. Fortunately, you’ve gained possession of a massive locomotive and can travel as far as the fuel will take you. It’ll run out eventually though and when it does, more must be found, which leads to encounters with other survivors and the infected. The aim is to gather enough supplies in order to carry on, maintain the train, and make judgement calls as to whether to let people board it.
The Final Station is usually priced at £11.99, but the good news for anyone interested in giving it a go can do so at no cost – as long as their an Xbox Live Gold member – as it’s one of the games selected for November’s Games With Gold. And you certainly should be getting involved as soon as possible, especially given the fact that our review explains how amazing it is, with us crying out for more back in 2016.
All you need to do is head on over to the Xbox Store and initiate a download before 15th December, when the price is expected to return.
The world is over. But it’s not quite over for you… at least, not yet. And now that you’ve got thousands of tonnes of locomotive at your disposal, ready to take you as far down the tracks as you have fuel to feed it, you’ve got the definite advantage over the infected hordes. This is The Final Station. The real question is whether or not you’ll help the survivors get to their destinations…. or let them die and loot their bodies. Sometimes people can be more trouble than they’re worth. – A post-apocalyptic adventure about travelling a dying world on a train – Survive for as long as you can by riding the rails, and finding supplies along the way. – Infected are ready to stop your progress whenever you exit the train to look for supplies. – Maintain your train in operating condition and craft valuable items from the resources you scavenge. – Don’t expect to shoot your way through the crowds of infected. Supplies and ammo are very limited. – Pick up survivors along the way, gaining perks (and hindrances) for your troubles.
