Simulation games are funny genre. Euro Truck Simulator should be dull as dishwater. But, there’s something calming, yet oddly compelling, about sitting behind the wheel of a huge 40′ trailer with just the open road ahead of you.
Well, as of 9th March, you can add trains the list of available vehicles in the category on Xbox One.
“Train Sim World®: Founders Edition is a first-person train simulator that delivers the experience of being a train driver on your Xbox One. Designed to provide the perfect introduction to Train Sim World for Xbox One players and fully optimized for performance and playability, Train Sim World Founders Edition enables you to quickly progress from learning the basics in accessible tutorials to confidently using the fully-functioning cab controls without any assistance.
Powered by Unreal Engine 4® technology and Dovetail Games’ proprietary SimuGraph® vehicle dynamics engine, Train Sim World uses real-world data to accurately replicate the performance, sound and feel of real trains. Players can truly feel the detail as they explore the world and interact with the trains. Featuring distinctly different types of locomotive, Train Sim World Founders Edition allows complete interactivity in the cab via an intuitive interface designed for the Xbox controller.
Experience a full ‘day-in-the-life’, in Service Mode, which features a timetable based on real-world activities. Hop on and off a range of services as they carry out their duties and choose to be either a driver or a passenger. With a timetable to keep and passengers to transport on-time, your skill, focus and endurance will be tested to the limit!
Rob O’Farrell, SVP, Development at Dovetail Games said, ‘Train Sim World Founders Edition is the perfect fit for Xbox One. We wanted to ensure that we struck the right balance between accessibility and authenticity so the player gets an experience that on one hand feels intuitive and on the other hand feels challenging and rewarding.
