The Future of Train Simulator
This September, as well as launching our annual iteration in the Train Simulator series (TS 2017), we will be starting to talk about our brand new next-generation train simulator, Train Sim World: CSX Heavy Haul. Here’s the details;
Train Simulator 2017 (TS2017)
The Standard Edition of Train Simulator 2017 will launch on 15th September 2016 featuring four of our newest routes from Germany, North America, Great Britain and France:
- Hamburg Lübeck
Transport your passengers precisely on time along the Vogelfluglinie between Hamburg and Lübeck in the renowned DB BR 218 locomotive.
- North Jersey Coast Line
Experience the precision of American commuter operations along the North Jersey Coast Line in the modern NJ TRANSIT ALP-45DP locomotive.
- LGV: Marseille – Avignon
Drive at breakneck speeds along the breath-taking Ligne Grande Vitesse: Marseille Saint Charles to Avignon TGV route in the iconic TGV® Duplex.
- South Wales Coastal: Bristol – Cardiff
Take in the scenic countryside of Southern Wales in the distinctive Arriva Trains Wales Class 175m.
Train Simulator 2017 Pioneers Edition
This September we're also introducing TS2017 Pioneers Edition. This time-limited special edition of TS2017 features the four routes from our Standard Edition but includes two additional bonuses:
The picture postcard scenery of the Austrian Alps dominates the stunning Semmeringbahn: Mürzzuschlag to Gloggnitz route.
- Train Sim World: CSX Heavy Haul Beta
Obtain your copy of TS2017 Pioneers Edition before 1st December 2016 to secure your place on the Beta and be the first to play our next-generation train simulator. Your feedback will help shape the development of this project. The Train Sim World: CSX Heavy Haul Beta will start in December 2016 and is just the beginning of the journey. We'll be introducing the other key territory routes as and when they become available.
Train Sim World: CSX Heavy Haul
Train Sim World is an entirely new product, built on Unreal Engine 4. This will allow us to deliver improved vehicle physics, engine propulsion, and signalling and dispatcher systems so that they reflect their real-world counterparts more accurately.
New ‘Complete My Collection’ feature
