game release date for PC:
Trainz Simulator: A New Era for PC is the next game in the popular train simulator series and, as the title suggests, opens a new era in the series history. It was developed by N3V Games, studio established by the devs from Auran, creators of the entire Trainz series.
Basic rules and gameplay mechanics did not change. We are still sculpting the land, build railways, and then try them out as a train driver whose job is to collect cargo and passengers, and safely finish our journey. There are many train engines available, from the oldest designs to the newest.
The biggest changes were implemented in the technological departments of Trainz Simulator: A New Era for PC. The game uses a brand new engine, E2. It allowed the developers at N3V Games to create a game that looks significantly better than Trainz Simulator 12. Train models are more detailed than ever, and we can see many advanced graphical effects like HDR, dynamic lighting, dynamic shadows, and altering weather conditions while playing.
New technology used in the development of Trainz Simulator: A New Era for PC also allowed to significantly improve the game’s physics. Those players who simply love realism will be more than pleased, but there are some simplificiations for those who want a more relaxing experience.
