The age of industry has arrived on PC and console! Kalypso Media and Gaming Minds Studios are thrilled to announce that highly-anticipated rail tycoon simulator Railway Empire is available today worldwide on Steam, and on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One in the UK, Europe and export territories, with the North American release to follow on 30th January. The boxed retail edition includes a copy of the game’s digital soundtrack, panoramic poster and a printed manual, while the digital version can be purchased through Steam, GOG, the PlayStation® Store and the Xbox Games Store.
In Railway Empire, players will conquer 19th century North America as they work to establish a vast rail network stretching from coast to coast. On the way to entrepreneurial superstardom, players must deal with cutthroat competitors, hire and fire their staff, research over 300 technologies and put over 40 historically authentic locomotives to work as they place miles of tracks across a massive, stunningly-detailed game world. A powerful graphics engine (available in 4k on PlayStation®4 Pro and Xbox One X) lets you seamlessly transition from a birds-eye view to a first-person perspective as you ride along with your favourite trains across your carefully laid rail network.
To celebrate the release, Kalypso is pleased to share the game’s launch trailer below, and will also be showcasing the game in a special launch day livestream taking place on Twitch from 17:00 GMT.
