The updates for the railway simulation Train Life: A Railway Simulator is chugging along nicely. 8 months after the early access launch, Simteract studio is adding more content and new features in anticipation of the game’s definitive launch, now scheduled for July 2022 on PC and shortly afterward on consoles.
The update will see a new official locomotive pulling into the station: the Newag Griffin. This series of vehicles, which carry both passengers and goods at speeds of up to 200 km/h, was first produced in Poland in 2012.
There are also new ways to customise the locomotives in Train Life, such as painting the outer bodywork in company colors and adding various decorative items in the driver’s cab (figurines of European monuments, bobbleheads, plants, etc).
With Train Life’s early access, the sights have raised. With that in mind, a new region has been added: the Alps. You can now roll on track alongside snow-covered mountains where nature has the upper hand.
Finally, in order to add more realism and make it more immersive, the game now includes climate conditions. You now have to take the weather into account when safely transporting freight and passengers!
Train Life: A Railway Simulator is available for early access on Steam and the Epic Games Store. The complete game is scheduled for release in July 2022 on PC and shortly afterward on consoles.
Train Life: A Railway Simulator puts you at the head of a railway company. For the first time in a game in this genre, you are tasked with developing your business and also becoming an experienced train driver. From the management interface, you can hire employees, buy new trains and sign contracts. In the driver’s cab, you need to control the train’s speed, confirm that the rails are correctly switched, and activate the emergency brake if necessary. NACON and Simteract have focused on creating realistic train models and on the management gameplay to offer both a fun and authentic experience. New content will be added regularly throughout the early access period.
