train sim world 2 rapid transit

When Dovetail Games announced the arrival of Train Sim World 2 onto Xbox One, PS4 and PC via Steam, part of the deal was that those players who had spent a host of cash on multiple DLC options for the original game, could take that content over to the sequel. Upon release a few of those packs made their way into the game, and just a few short weeks ago other pieces dropped in, but now it’s time to see a third batch of content packs work their way into Train Sim World 2, with a German theme front and centre. 

Available to either purchase as brand new individual packs or to transfer from the original Train Sim World to Train Sim World 2 are the Main Spessart Bahn: Aschaffenburg – Gemünden, Rapid Transit and the dashing DB BR 182 packs all arrive in game. 

But what exactly do we have? Well, taking the £24.99 Main Spessart Bahn: Aschaffenburg – Gemünden pack first and this takes us on a little trip through the glorious German countryside, taking in inclines, hillsides, swooping turns and more. As is standard in Train Sim World 2, everything along the Main Spessart Bahn corridor has been meticulously replicated by the Dovetail Games team, with all tiny details, stations, signal posts and mileposts in place. This is a pack that provides access to a couple of iconic locos too – the DB BR 185.2 and the DB BR 146.2. 

Sitting pretty alongside that is the Rapid Transit pack. This comes in at the same £24.99 asking price, to allow us to live out the good life onboard one of te most popular S-Bahn railways. The super sleek DB BR 1442 ‘Talent 2’ will be your home throughout and one look at this masterpiece of engineering will ensure you’ll never want to leave.

And then there’s also the cheaper £11.99 tagged DB BR 182 pack. This in itself is an add-on to the Rapid Transit route and not only includes three new scenarios for you to play through, but additional services for the Service Mode. The main draw here will of course be the presence of the DB BR 182 itself – if that’s your bag, this is the pack to have. 

Obviously in order to enjoy any of these new options, you’ll need to have the base game of Train Sim World 2 available for playing on Xbox One, PS4 or PC. From there though, the Xbox Store will sort you out with new purchases, whilst the Preserved Collection option should let you drag in any previously purchased content that you may have splashed out cash on from the original Train Sim World. Alternatively, if you’re not playing on Xbox One, your own local digital store should sort you out.

As always, let us know in the comments if this latest batch of Preserved Collection content is enough to drag you back into the world of the railways.
