Dovetail Games has announced that Train Simulator 2015, which will give players the opportunity to drive some of the world's most powerful high-speed trains on three iconic routes from around the globe. The next installment in the series is set to launch on September 18, 2014, for PC, and will be compatible with an existing range of more than 100 add-on locomotives and routes, allowing fans the ability to customize their experience. Players can create and edit routes and scenarios and share them via Steam Workshop.
Dovetail Games has worked closely with train builders Hitachi Rail Europe Ltd to include a highly accurate recreation of their new Class 800/801 trains. As part of the Intercity Express Programme (IEP) Hitachi Rail Europe will provide new electric and bi-mode trains for the Great Western Main Line and East Coast Main Line. These are expected to go into passenger service in 2018, but thanks to Train Simulator 2015, rail fans can get behind the controls and start driving them right away.
