Chatham, Kent – 1st June 2018 Dovetail Games, the multi award-winning developer and publisher of simulation games, is pleased to announce Train Sim World® is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation® 4 and PC on 24th July 2018.
Train Sim World is a First-Person Train Simulator that brings to life the experience of operating powerful and realistic trains on authentic replicas on some of the world’s most amazing railways. Choose how you want to play, taking control and mastering powerful locomotives, running-to-time, carrying out important tasks or riding along as a passenger and watching the world go by. Watch all the action unfold and capture amazing screenshots or go exploring to hunt down all the hidden collectables. Whatever you choose to do, there are lots to see and experience in Train Sim World.
Powered by Unreal Engine 4® technology and Dovetail Games’ proprietary SimuGraph® vehicle dynamics engine, incorporating a simulation underpinned with expert technical knowledge and real-world data, the performance, sounds and feel has been accurately reproduced to make the trains feel just like the real thing.
Train Sim World features three distinctly different experiences to test your skills on different trains and routes around the World:
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.
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 signalling system.
