Feral Interactive today announced that Sid Meierís Railroads!, the ingenious re-imagining of the legendary Railroad Tycoon (1990), will be released for the Mac this Fall. Developed by Firaxis games and published by 2K Games for PC, Sid Meierís Railroads! comes to the Mac for the first time under the Feral Legends label.
First published in 2006 for PC, Sid Meierís Railroads! is a compelling combination of virtual train set and business simulator, putting players in charge of building their own railroad empire. Players control a vast collection of rolling stock from steam and diesel locomotives to modern electric trains, hauling goods and passengers across vast continents.
Featuring 46 historically-accurate trains, 16 maps and seven mission-driven scenarios that span two centuries of American and European history, Sid Meierís Railroads! challenges players to turn frontier lands into thriving civilizations by laying track and routing trains between farms, towns, mines and factories. With rival railroad barons such as Cornelius Vanderbilt and Charles de Gaulle on the scene, players will need to be quick, smart and decisive to stay on track.
ďSid Meierís Railroads! is so addictive that we had trouble prizing it out of the hands of our testers. Weíre confident Mac gamers will be stoked for it,Ē said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive.
Sid Meierís Railroads! for the Mac will retail in North America for US $29.99, £19.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and Ä24.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe.
