Kuju Entertainment previously developed Microsoft Train Simulator, which sold a million copies and inspired third-party companies to develop over 40 expansion packs.
“Our previous release showed the massive and sustainable appetite for train simulator games with add-on’s still being released regularly. EA’s enthusiastic involvement and powerful distribution will allow us to bring the next generation of train games to the mass market. RAIL SIMULATOR will be based on an entirely new game engine, providing new levels of immersion and allowing enthusiasts to get even closer to the experience of driving their favourite locomotives,” said Jonathan Newth, Managing Director, Kuju Entertainment.
Paul Jackson, Managing Director Northern Region, Electronic Arts, said, “We’re proud to support a pioneer in simulator games in bringing a totally new title to market. RAIL SIMULATOR will offer stunning 3D graphics and a totally realistic experience. Players will be able to enjoy a wide range of train environments; from the drama and romance of steam to the sheer power and sophistication of the latest high-speed locomotives.”
