With the original Railway Empire releasing back in 2018, we’ve been waiting a long time for its sequel. But, good news as the wait is over and Railway Empire 2 has chugged into a number of platforms (see what we did there?).
If you’re a fan of the series and want a new challenge or have a real interest in Japan, then you’ll find the natural challenges of the new map a fun brain-teaser along with four different campaigns. If you’re new to the series, then you may wish to start with the vanilla Railway Empire, unless your Japanese geography is pretty good!
After being given the chance to travel the length and breadth of Great Britain & Ireland, having gone Down Under, and having spent time Crossing the Andes and paying a visit to the Great Lakes amongst others, it's been a little quiet on the Railway Empire front. All that changes today though as we head off to the land of the Rising Sun, taking in the twisted paths of Japan.
Railway Empire - Complete Collection on Xbox One is a fun game, it has beautiful visuals, in-depth systems, and allows a ton of freedom. It won’t be for everyone; the sheer amount of content can be overwhelming and learning some of the more complex elements of the game will seem like a daunting task. Get over the learning curve though and you’ll be rewarded with countless hours of fun, and there is always the option of going the easy route.
Railway Empire has been stopping off at various stations for a good few years, having first launched the base game to Xbox One back at the start of 2018. Since then though we've been witness to a number of DLC packs, taking gamers around the globe and allowing them to expand their horizons with a whole raft of new opportunities. Today that base game and all those packs come together as one, as Railway Empire - Complete Collection rolls out to Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Railway Empire - Northern Europe on Xbox One is another solid entry in the DLC market for Railway Empire, a game that has already given fans and train enthusiasts a ton of content. The price is pretty good for something that gives you a whole new map to play with, new engines, new routes and stuff to trade, but I do believe that in order to completely enjoy everything - especially that of the new Scenario - you’ll need to be hugely dedicated to the game.
Building a Railway Empire is a tiresome business, but those who throw themselves straight in will also discover many opportunities to visit far-flung lands. With the latest DLC pack for Railway Empire on Xbox One, PS4 and Steam, that trip of a lifetime exists once more, taking us to Northern Europe.
It started in America, then Mexico, then Canada and after a short trip over the ocean I have also taken in good old Britain, Ireland and Germany. I'm exhausted, to be honest with you, but there is no time for resting as I am now required to use my railway building knowledge to help the people of France get themselves and their goods across the country safely and on time. So I've got my inspector's uniform on and here I go again with the Railway Empire - France expansion.
