Feral Interactive announced today that Sid Meier's Railroads!, developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games for PC, will be released for the Mac this fall. The ingenious re-imagining of the legendary Railroad Tycoon (1990) 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.
