Train Simulator 2019 is another part of the extensive simulator series. According to the publisher's constant practice, owners of the previous part are entitled to a free update to the 2019 version, but they will not get access to exclusive content. Dovetail Games and Rail Simulator Developments are responsible for creating this production.
The game in Train Simulator 2019 is no different from what we know from previous versions of the series. Watching the virtual world from the driver's perspective (other perspectives are also available), we drive our train, admiring the realistic landscapes and ensuring that passengers arrive safely. The game features several new locomotives, such as EMD GP9, EMD SD40T-2 and END F40PH.
In Train Simulator 2019 we will also find new locations and routes: Soldier Summit and Salt Lake City located in the USA, the German Rhine Railway and Frankfurt Highspeed, and the British Portsmouth Direct Line. If we don't like the content prepared by the creators, we can create our own. Just like in the older parts of the series we have an extensive editor at our disposal, and the results of our work can be shared with other players.
In Train Simulator 2019 we can only play alone. You can choose to play in a career mode, fast travel or free travel. In addition, a number of challenges awaits - in some of them, we receive a predetermined machine to drive, and the game may challenge you with, among other things, weather conditions. We can compare our scores on the leaderboards.
Actually an update to the previous installment, Train Simulator 2019 does not introduce any significant changes to the formula. Only the user interface has been refreshed to a certain extent. In the technological dapartament, a significant step forward for the series is the addition of a 64-bit architecture support (also compatible with 32-bit systems).
