Railway Empire

Post by skyrish19 »



Looks like a spiritual successor to Railroad Tycoon as it only focus on trains and also available on the consoles.

Has anyone played this and your thoughts?

Looks rather solid. Released by Kalypso, previously the publisher behind Tropico. (Not the same development studio, mind you).

You know, I might just have to give this one a go.

Same thoughts as always : it looks so great, unluckily no buses or similar.

This game is currently available with a large discount at Steam, so I went ahead and bought it alongside some DLCs. It's interface is difficult, but it's clear this game has taken inspiration from the Railroad Tycoon series. It's neat, and worth it if at a discount.

It's just been released on the Switch too so if it's having a discount I'll probably pick it up too - being able to play with trains on the go smooth is always a pro move.
Tbh it wasn't until I saw they have a couple of EU dlc addon packs that it had me interested, but it looks at least like it'll be fun.
