Train Life: A Railway Simulator puts you at the head of a railway company. For the first time in a simulation game, this means becoming an experienced train driver and managing your own company. In the management interface you can hire employees, purchase new trains and sign contracts. In the driver’s cab you control the train’s speed, check that the rail switches are in the right position, and activate the emergency brake, if necessary. NACON and Simteract have specifically worked on the train modelling and management gameplay to provide an experience that is both fun and authentic.

During its time in Early Access, Train Life: A Railway Simulator received lots of content: official locomotives (the ICE and Newag Griffins), new regions (Western Europe, the Alps and part of Eastern Europe), as well as many different scenarios in which players need to demonstrate their train driving and management skills.

Simteract has listened to the community and implemented a range of optimizations and features, such as an improved GPS system, more key map information and variable weather conditions. For the final release, the game tutorial has been improved, and new scenarios, controller vibrations and achievements have been added.

As well as arriving on consoles, 22 September marks the arrival of the Orient Express in Train Life: A Railway Simulator. Available as DLC and in the eponymous game edition, the Orient Express is a famous steam train built by the Compagnie Internationale des Wagon-Lits. Operating it is a world away from modern trains: drivers need to shovel coal into the firebox and use the regulator handle to make the train move forward. This new locomotive comes with five exclusive scenarios and two new stations in the Career mode: Strasbourg and Vienna.

Train Life: A Railway Simulator is now available in its complete version on PC, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One and Xbox Series. The game will be out later on Nintendo SwitchTM.
