Stretch Your Railway Empire From Coast To Coast
Kalypso Media and Gaming Minds Studios are excited to announce the release of the free Transcontinental Content Update for the Steam version of Railway Empire, introducing a host of new features to the hit rail tycoon simulator inspired by the feedback and requests of the game’s dedicated fans.
The headline feature of the new update is the additional of the new Transcontinental North American Map to the ‘Free’ and ‘Sandbox’ modes, which will finally allow tycoons the ability to expand their empire from coast to coast across the entire country on one eye-wateringly massive map.
Players will also be able to play a full 100-year campaign with the new Centennial Era option, allowing you to research and develop all available locomotives in a single game and span 100 years of progress with a newly balanced tech tree and dynamic market system that introduces new goods and commodities over time.
The update also includes a range of other fixes and improvements, details of which can be seen in the full changelog.
The Transcontinental Content Update is just one part of Kalypso’s future plans for Railway Empire. The developers at Gaming Minds Studios are already hard at work on further free updates, which will include a random map generator, enhanced AI, X-crossings and other improvements inspired by player feedback – details of which will be announced in due course, along with updates for the console versions.
And for those that haven’t yet started out on their own epic entrepreneurial enterprise, Kalypso has also launched a new week-long promotion on Steam (available until 10am PST on 2nd April), where a 15% discount is currently available for Railway Empire.
As an added bonus, owners of a previous Gaming Minds title (any one of Patrician IV, Rise of Venice, Port Royale 3 or Grand Ages: Medieval) can also unlock a 10% discount against Railway Empire for the next month (available until 1pm PST on 26th April).
This extra discount is stackable with the week-long promotion, for a possible total of 25% off the regular price.
