Dovetail Games, developer and publisher of authentic simulation titles, today released their first development diary video for Train Sim World 3, coming to PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on Sept. 6. This is the first of three videos focused on three topics core to Train Sim World 3: Freedom, power, and weather.

Freedom forms an important part of what sets Train Sim World 3 apart from previous releases. At the heart of this is the new Training Center where players can get to grips with the locomotive controls through a series of tutorials, and experienced players can experiment in a sandbox fashion. The Training Center area, effectively a whole new route, is inspired by a real-world test track in Germany with an area to explore at will in the cab of any of the game’s locomotives.

Training Center marks the beginning of an area of development in Train Sim World 3 that will ultimately ensure that future locomotive add-ons are not pinned to set routes, as they were in previous releases. In addition, all tutorials, regardless of where they are set, will be accessed through the Training Center interface giving players an easy place to navigate when learning the different modes of operation.

Outside of Training Center, players of Train Sim World 2 will be able to continue enjoying any previously purchased routes* in addition to the three routes new to Train Sim World 3: Kassel-Würzburg, Cajon Pass and the extended Southeastern Highspeed route.

Those purchasing Train Sim World 3: Deluxe Edition will also have the freedom of choosing steam, diesel or electric locomotives, with the addition of an upgraded version of the popular Spirit of Steam add-on.

Developed and published by Dovetail Games, Train Sim World 3 will release for Windows PC, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles on Sept. 6, 2022. The title is available for pre-purchase digitally now on Steam and the Epic Games Store, PlayStation®Store, and Microsoft Store with a Deluxe Edition available for £49.99/€59.99/$59.99 and four ‘Starter Packs’ each available for £29.99/€35.99/$39.99. The ‘Deluxe Edition’ can be pre-ordered with a 10% discount and all pre-order purchases will grant a 4-day Early Access pass to the game, as well as a bonus decal pack to use within the livery editor to share on Creators Club, the home of player customization in Train Sim World.
