Yep, you’re reading that right – Train Sim World is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and today we have a confirmed release date.
But you may be sat there thinking that we already have access to Train Sim World. And you’d be right as Xbox One gamers can already hop aboard the fast trains found in Train Sim World Founders Edition. This is however a completely different beast.
See, Train Sim World pushes the trainspotting world even further than before, as it gets us ready for the drive of our lives with three distinctly different experiences to test your skills on different trains and routes around the world.
Coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on July 24th 2018, Train Sim World brings to life the operation of powerful and realistic replica trains on some of the most amazing railways in the world. A first person train sim, it’ll let you choose exactly how you wish to play, which locos you wish to mess around with, and exactly which routes you want to take.
With hidden collectibles in place (yep, in a train sim!), and the chance to just kick back as a passenger should you so wish, whatever you choose to do, there’s lots to see and experience in Train Sim World.
Powered by Unreal Engine 4 and Dovetail Games’ proprietary SimuGraph vehicle dynamics engine, expect to find this game underpinned by expert technical knowledge and real-world data, as the performance, sounds and feel has been accurately reproduced to make the trains feel just like the real thing.
And whilst the limitations of the Founders Pack were clear to see, this one lets you get involved with a whole ton more…
- Northeast Corridor New York – Go to work as an engineer on one of America’s most famous railroads, driving Amtrak passenger and CSX freight trains on the world-famous Northeast Corridor in New York City. With impatient passengers to transport on-time and freight to deliver, your skill, focus and endurance will be tested to the limit.
- Great Western Express -Drive high speed, passenger and freight trains on one of Britain’s busiest railways. Take control of the iconic Class 43 High Speed Train (HST) and command it to 125mph along the Great Western Main Line out of London’s famous Paddington station.
- Rapid Transit -Drive commuter passenger trains on one of Germany’s historic city S-Bahn railways. Navigating the busy S-Bahn will require you to master the layout of the route and the functions and systems of your train as well as Deutsche Bahn’s unique signaling system.
Rob O’Farrell, SVP, Development at Dovetail Games said, ‘The dream of driving trains on your Xbox One, PlayStation® 4 or PC in Train Sim World is now close to becoming a reality. We’ve strived to deliver the optimal experience for players on each platform and enable them to feel the detail and enjoy the work that has gone into crafting Train Sim World.’
If you already own the Founders Edition of Train Sim World then you will be able to upgrade at a discounted price to Train Sim World or the Train Sim World Digital Deluxe Edition when it releases on July 24th.
