A good train management game can be a thing of excellence, just think back to the Railroad Tycoon series and bask the glow of glorious train timetabling and management. It is a genre which I’ve largely lost track of in recent time, but the upcoming full release of Train Valley on September 16th could change that.
Best thing I’ve seen today is the video after the break featuring Sean Bean (aka Ned Stark, aka Boromir, aka Sharpe) narrating a trailer for Train Simulator 2014 in a #WeAreRailFans promotional campaign. You can find all the campaign details right here ahead of tomorrow’s launch of the newest version of the simulator.
Regular readers of the site will know that I am a big fan of Euro Truck Simulator 2 which surely ranks alongside Farming Simulator and Train Simulator as one of the hits of the simulation game genre. With the new Train Simulator title coming out later this month, the 26th to be exact, I thought it was the ideal time to find out more. My hunt led me to Simon Saunston of developers RailSimulator.com. Simon is brand manager at the company and was perfectly placed to answer my questions about what to expect in the new game, resolve my concerns over the amount of DLC with his titles and more. Hit the break and enter the world of trains.
The London Underground holds a special place in the hearts of many, admittedly I am sure there are those who hate it, but there are a select few who doubtless have a deep fascination with it. As a non-Londoner, I don’t really have much of a fascination with it, but that just might change thanks to London Underground Simulator – The Circle Line.
