All aboard… Railway Empire is heading to France and right now the latest DLC pack promises to throw you into a time where a new project is being considered – the construction of the Eiffel Tower.
Railway Empire promises to put you in the conductor’s seat as you spend time building extensive rail networks, developing new technologies, growing and managing a rail workforce, all while managing to stay one step ahead of the opposition. With a rather nifty base game already complemented by trips to Mexico, The Great Lakes, Crossing the Andes, Great Britain & Ireland and Germany, it’s now time to head to Europe once more and understand the appeal of France.
The Railway Empire – France DLC adds in a whole new map (obviously), alongside extra engines and tradable goods that will see your empire skyrocket above all others. Available now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC for £10.74, in addition to the new DLC, Update 1.9 is now also live for all platforms.
Features of the France DLC for Railway Empire include:
- New scenario – 1874-1890
- Map expansion: France (available in Free Game and Sandbox modes)
- 10 historical engines: Coupe Vent (4-4-0) and Forquenot (2-4-2)
- More than 12 new tradeable goods (wine and soft cheese) and 31 new cities
- ‘Concession’ feature: The map is divided into sections. Buy concessions to gain access to new building grounds. Also available on the full North American map
- New songs and updated characters
You’ll obviously need the base game to hand in order to head off on this journey, but should that already be in place then a digital store of your choosing will happily sort the tickets. We advise hitting up the Xbox Store.
In the wake of Emperor Napoleon III’s exile, the French monarchy has collapsed for the second time, and the Third Republic has taken its place. In the Railway Empire – France DLC you will decide your country’s industrial future. Either take sides with a militaristic general and increase the strength of France’s borders in anticipation of a new war or help the minister of public work to rebuild the infrastructure of the country and undertake the controversial new “Eiffel Tower” project.
