Please wait...

Early access for Train Life: A Railway Simulator begins on 31 August 2021. The developers want the early access programme to last for up to ten months whilst they gather feedback from gamers and implement all the features. The game offers a different perspective than other train simulators as in Train Life you take control as the driver and company director setting the way to drive your new empire to success.

The game is being developed by NACON and is the first in a series of 5 simulation games that the company plan to release. The unique feature for this one is the ability to not only drive the trains but run the train company itself. You'll need to hire drivers, buy the rolling stock, and meeting contractual objectives to keep the company going. This is combined with a superbly detailed driving model, that gives the game an authentic simulation feel.

The map will be gradually added to in the early access version starting off with thousands of kilometres of tracks around Europe, and the team will be adding in new trains with constant updates. As these updates roll out the price for early access will increase. To begin with, you will be able to create your own company starting in Germany with a choice of four trains just to get you into the basics. The team will then bring in updates to expand your experience across Europe.

You can find out more on the Steam store page here. The game is launching on Early Access on the 31st of August, and will also be available on the Epic Games Store when it releases.
