CAN YOU BEAT THE CLOCK – AND GET THE TRAINS RUNNING ON TIME? FIND OUT NOW IN TRAIN SIM WORLD®: GREAT WESTERN EXPRESS

Chatham, Kent – 14th September 2017 Dovetail Games, the multi award-winning simulation game developer and publisher, is pleased to confirm the latest installment of its next-gen train simulator, Train Sim World®: Great Western Express is out now for Windows PC.

Operating out of London Paddington, Great Western Express tests your skills as a train driver on one of the busiest railway lines in the UK. You need to keep your nerve under immense pressure, keeping passengers happy while negotiating bustling networks, adverse signals and tight timetables.

It’s an authentic experience inside and outside the cab, with real world data powering the performance, sounds and feel of the trains. With Dovetail Games’ proprietary SimuGraph® vehicle dynamics engine and Unreal Engine 4® technology behind it, the power behind Train Sim World®: Great Western Express matches the trains on the tracks.

If you are new to train sims, accessible tutorials will teach you everything you need to know, ensuring you have all the skills you need to command the iconic Great Western Railways HST with confidence.

You can test those newly-learned skills in Service Mode, which recreates an entire 24-hour timetable based on real activities and lets you experience a full ‘day-in-the-life’ of a train driver. However, if you just want to unwind and relax, you can just enjoy the views as a passenger.

Take control – or ride along – the choice is yours.

Included in the Train Sim World bundle with Great Western Express is CSX Heavy Haul, together they deliver the ultimate passenger and freight train experience, with CSX Heavy Haul bringing to life the experience of operating powerful and heavy freight trains on one of America’s most stunning and famous railroads: Sand Patch Grade.

Train Sim World®: Great Western Express is available now as part of a bundle with CSX Heavy Haul for £34.99.
