train valley console edition on xbox

After making waves on PC and mobile, the Train Valley series has stopped off at the console station, releasing on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Switch in Train Valley: Console Edition form. Should you love the railways, or get your kicks from the puzzle scene, this is one that will provide a host of enjoyment. 

Available to purchase and download today on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Switch, Train Valley: Console Edition will throw you into one-screen worlds, tasked with helping navigate the most precious cargo from one town to the next, getting paid for the privilege. Working a colour-coded fashion, you’ll need to help send your locos from one town to the next, as quickly and as swiftly as possible, earning enough cash to help lay the foundations for more complex track systems. 

Laying railroad is the name of the game, but everything you do in Train Valley: Console Edition is tied to a currency system. Go bankrupt and you’ll be left as a failure; keep the cash coffers full and healthy though and you’ll be able to transport multiple trains at various times, from one station to the next with ease. The problem is, laying track costs cash, and so that vicious circle continues to stay complete. 

With a variety of biome available in Train Valley: Console Edition, plus a Sandbox mode should you require it, there’s a host of content included here. In fact, taking into consideration the £9.99 (11.99 USD | EUR) price tag, it’s pretty rich in terms of content to cash ratios. Replayability is extremely high too, as you get given the chance to hit various objectives and missions as you play. 

Whether it be Europe (1830–1980), America (1840–1960), USSR (1880–1980), Japan (1900–2020) or Germany (1830-2020) that is most relevant to you, Train Valley: Console Edition will deliver it. There are thirty trains in total to enjoy perusing too. 

Train Valley was a significant milestone for our studio. First, because it was the first “serious” game for PC. Secondly, because we tried our hand at self-publishing on Steam with all that implied: trailers, marketing, business development, community building, and a million other little things” – Alexey Davydov (co-Founder at Flazm).

Key features:

  • Build railroads in order to connect cities, tunnels and bridges. New railways are cheap when laid across bare fields, but can be expensive when demolishing forests, villages and other existing structures.
  • Manage increasing traffic by constructing switches, sidings and spurs so that multiple trains can run without delays, at the same time.
  • Stay accident-free by precisely controlling trains during crucial moments, using pause for planning (you can build railways and schedule trains while on pause).
  • Play through 5 seasons: Europe (1830–1980), America (1840–1960), USSR (1880–1980), Japan (1900–2020) and Germany (1830-2020).
  • Complete the story mode featuring such real-life events as the Gold Rush of 1849, the construction of the Florida Overseas Railroad, World War II, the Cold War, the launch of the first manned space flight Vostok 1, the fall of the Berlin Wall and more.
  • Explore the game in different game modes: in story mode (5-10 minutes), in random mode (15-20 minutes – the level looks and develops differently every time you launch) or in sandbox-like mode (can be turned on for both story and random modes. It allows you to play without time and money limits).
  • Discover 30 types of trains – from early steam-powered locomotives to modern high-speed trains, driving 18 types of cars – from old-time passenger cars to hoppers and cisterns and to military-use tank and gun platforms.

Our full review of Train Valley: Console Edition and how it plays out on Xbox Series X|S is up, live and ready for reading. We’d highly advise you check it out even if you’re on the fence in regards the genres at hand – Train Valley: Console Edition is a game that belies its slightly cartoony, slightly ‘railway fanatic’ vibes.
