Train Sim World: CSX Heavy Haul Beta Programme
Train Sim World: CSX Heavy Haul is the new entry into the Train Simulator franchise from Dovetail Games. It sees the long-standing game development jump onto the Unreal Engine, falling in line with their most recently developed games (Euro Fishing and Flight School)
With the new Train Sim World: CSX Heavy Haul Beta starting on the 8th of December, you have until tomorrow (7th of December) to guarantee your place in the Beta by purchasing the Train Sim 2017 Pioneers edition from Steam. The Beta only runs until the 19th of December too, so make sure to get on it before the window closes.
Train Sim World: CSX Heavy Haul is the first iteration in the new series and is due to launch in February 2017. It will feature the Sand Patch Grade route, stretching 60 miles across the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania and Maryland in the USA. Players joining the beta will be able to access two key sections of this route; Cumberland Yard and Sand Patch Summit, giving them a taste of busy yard life, and also allowing them to test their skills on a section of the route which offers a variety of challenging gradient changes.
Featuring fully customisable weather systems (a taste of which will be available in the beta), Train Sim World will offer more immersion, realism and authenticity than has ever been seen before in a train simulation. The beta will also introduce first person mode, allowing players to walk around and explore the world, as well as interacting with the trains. The CSX SD40-2 locomotive, included in the beta, allows full interactivity in the cab, so you can gain a complete understanding of how the train works, and how it feels to be sitting in the driver’s seat with the controls in your hands.
