This updates the game to Unreal Engine 4.26, adds new visuals like distance field shadows, upgraded immersion controller scheme allowing new camera views, and panels for information like gradient profiles to aid operators when driving. This update also includes some major improvements for existing routes, making it the perfect time for players to start their journey as a driver.
Dovetail Games is proud to have the official license from Amtrak and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) for the two new locomotives added in the Boston Sprinter route, with the team working closely to accurately recreate the look, feel, and sound of these engines as they traverse the 43 mile (70 km) route between Boston and Providence.
“We’ve worked closely with our fantastic partners Amtrak and the MBTA to ensure we’re giving players the most authentic experience of being in the operator’s seat for the Boston – Providence line in Rush Hour.” said Dovetail Games CEO Jon Rissik, “Immersion is at the core of Train Sim World 2, and Rush Hour represents our commitment to continually expand and improve the player experience.”
“Dovetail Games’ commitment to authenticity and enthusiasm for railroads made this a fantastic partnership.” said Amtrak Marketing VP Kerry McKelvey, “Amtrak is excited to bring a new segment of the popular Northeast Corridor to Train Sim World 2.”
“Working with Dovetail Games to give gamers a look from the Engineer’s seat of one of our MBTA F40-3C locomotives has been a unique experience.” added MBTA Chief Railroad Officer Ryan D. Coholan, “We hope that this experience as an Engineer will give people a deeper appreciation of the joys and challenges of operating a powerful diesel locomotive on a busy railroad.”
Rush Hour itself starts with the release of Boston Sprinter, the ‘Northeast Corridor: Boston – Providence’ route, one of the oldest, busiest, and fastest passenger lines in the United States that began service in the 1830’s, with players taking control of the modern Amtrak ACS-64 or striking MBTA F40PH-3C as they pass through busy commuter stations.
Stations are livelier than ever to support the new commuter line, with an improved passenger system seeing platforms and cars buzzing with activity as commuters board and depart at each station. This feature is unique to Rush Hour and original Train Sim World 2 routes, adding increased passengers volume, more variety of clothing, new Winter outfits and passenger scenes.

Inspired by the performance of Audio-Technica’s acclaimed BP40 Large-Diaphragm Dynamic Broadcast Microphone, the AT2040 brings professional-quality sound with exceptional vocal reproduction to podcasters and other content creators at an affordable price point.

The AT2040 provides smooth, warm, natural sound, while the mic’s multistage windscreen combines a nonwoven filter with foam mesh to provide superior internal pop filtering. Its specially-designed integrated shock mount prevents unwanted noise by attenuating vibration from a boom arm or mic stand.

A classic teenage coming-of-age story, The Big Con is a hilarious trip featuring open-ended narrative, sneaky situations, puzzles and exploration… and lots of petty theft and grifting!
Mighty Yell’s new behind-the-scenes trailer announcing The Big Con’s release date is a deep dive into the ongoing process to audition for the game’s sweeping, sprawling screenplay, an unabridged manuscript of thirteen weighty words (not a typo, it’s 13 words long). With each individual syllable carrying so much theatrical gravitas, there seemed only one logical solution: invite fans to submit their own recorded performances for a chance to have their voice appear in the game itself!
Mighty Yell asked some of gaming’s most accomplished thespians to spread the word about this search for the industry’s next big stars. Four greats who will not appear in The Big Con itself, but who are featured in the game’s new trailer — Troy Baker (The Last of Us, Uncharted), Dave Fennoy (The Walking Dead), Melissa Hutchison (The Walking Dead), and Erika Ishii (Apex Legends, Destiny 2) — have helped kick off this fun community contest today.
From July 22 until July 29, those based in the United States can submit your very own audition tape! We’ve made it radically easy for anyone to rival some of the industry’s best voice talent. It’s never been simpler: just go to https://www.thebigcongame.com/bigcontest to learn how.
The Big Con is all about Ali, a teenage con artist trying to save her mom’s video store from unscrupulous loan sharks any way she can. In this colorful adventure filled with punchy puzzles and dialogue, how you make that money is up to you: travel across the country picking pockets and locks, persuading marks, sneaking around in disguises, and even profiting off the latest plushie fad.
