"And what speed! Heart-pounding, adrenaline-rushing…"
Dovetail Games has one again enlisted the help of Sean Bean, and this time it is for the launch of 'Train Simulator 2015.' Naturally, Bean lends the whole experience and enthused elegance, while at the same time keeping in step with the leading train simulation game's "We Are Rail Fans" spirit.
While Bean's exuberance over speed is remarkable, 'Train Simulator 2015' comes with a really important feature. Where 'Train Simulator 2014' (check out the review) was fine with letting players learn the hard way, 'Train Simulator 2015' has a new TS Academy that promises to help the novice get hold of these trains controls.
'Train Simulator 2015' even includes the Hitachi Class 801, a high-speed train that is set to enter service in the UK in 2018, but can be operated right now in the game.
Some routes included in the game include:
London to Peterborough East Coast Main Line route
Including the First Capital Connect Class 365 plus Hitachi Class 801 trains
New York to New Haven North East Corridor route
Including the Amtrak ACS-64 plus Amtrak Acela Express trains
Munich to Garmisch-Partenkirchen route
Including the DB BR 426 plus DB 411 ICE T trains
This new PC game, though, is still compatible with more than a 100 existing add-on locomotives routes, plus the Steam Workshop.
