Railway Empire 2 Launches - Sequel to Successful Rail Economic Strategy

Railroad Empire 2 debuts today - lovers of railroads and economic strategies will be able to test themselves as rail transport providers and build their own transportation empire.

Today marks the release of Railway Empire 2 - the sequel to 2018's economic strategy game, in which we build and develop our own railroad company. The first part was warmly received by players, so you can expect that the sequel will also provide tons of fun. Gaming Minds Studios is responsible for the production, and the publisher is Kalypso Media.

  • Those who do not want to buy the proverbial cat in a bag, will probably be pleased to know that the game is already available as part ofXbox and PC Game Pass.
  • The title can also now be purchased on PlayStation Store in two versions: Standard and Deluxe.
  • If anyone intends to purchase the game on Microsoft's consoles, can do so now at a reduced price: $44.99 for the basic version (instead of $49.99) and $53.99 for the Deluxe version (instead of $59.99).
  • Steam users will have to wait until 7 p.m. CET to be able to purchase the game, when the pre-order period with a 10 percent discount will end.

During the game we play as one of the available characters, and our task is to develop the railroad infrastructure. The game provides us with two large maps covering areas of Europe and the United States. As railroad tycoons, we have to watch over the construction of tracks, maintenance of machines, expansion of stations, as well as preparation of timetables.

When he was a kid, he thought he would become a rock star (and to this day still has a little hope that this will come true). He played in several bands during his high school and college years, but was not successful with any of them, however, he makes his living in part from music – unfortunately, playing pot-boiler kind of music at weddings. He is studying journalism and took his first steps in radio, but he did not stay there long, preferring to look for something else. He took on various jobs, often completely unrelated to his profession; for several years, he even was a bartender. He came Gamepressure in December 2020 and has been a loyal padawan of the Newsroom ever since, although he also worked with Friendly Fire, where he was in charge of its TikTok.
