RailSimulator.com's PC game 'Train Simulator 2014'.
PC game Train Simulator 2014 from developer/publisher RailSimulator.com, will be ready for download and in North American retail stores later this week.
This latest iteration in the genuine locomotive driving experience franchise, which releases September 26 as a download and September 27 at retail, brings a host of changes to the game compared to years past. This includes a redesigned career system, interface, graphical and performance updates, as well as new and refined creation tools. Furthermore, Google Earth integration enables highly detailed and diverse routes to come to life quickly and easily.
Train Simulator 2014 also has an improved marketplace designed to make it even simpler to share and obtain new content. With more than 100 pieces of downloadable content to choose from via Steam, players can create the digital train set of which they've always dreamed. Customers who already own an earlier version of Train Simulator will receive a free software update to the 2014 edition at launch, giving existing users access to all the new user interface and gameplay improvements.
Railsimulator.com has also revealed an upcoming DLC expansion for Train Simulator. The upcoming "Pacific Surfliner" DLC expansion opens up a 128-mile stretch of the famous California route linking Los Angeles's Union Station to San Diego's century-old Santa Fe Depot. Players of the DLC will be able to coast along the U.S. Pacific Coast, gliding gracefully through the rolling hills, valleys and quiet beach villages that dot the scenic Pacific Ocean shoreline. Sights include Anaheim's Angel Stadium, Oceanside Pier, busy suburban junctions, and sprawling urban rail yards. The "Pacific Surfliner" package includes a 3,200 horsepower, diesel-fueled EMD F59PHI locomotive, Amtrak Surfliner double-decker coaches, a rear cab driving car, and new scenarios. This DLC suite is due for release in late October and requires an up-to-date version of Train Simulator in order to be played.
