Dovetail Games Releases Rush Hour DLC on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S; Major Updates for Train Sim World 2 as it Joins Xbox Game Pass.
Dovetail Games is thrilled to announce the launch of Train Sim World 2: Rush Hour and its first rail line, the Boston Sprinter route, on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, and for the first time releasing on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Existing owners of Train Sim World 2 on Xbox One or the PS4 system can upgrade their version to a native Xbox Series X|S or PS5 version for free, enjoying an enhanced version of the game optimized for the latest console generation.
The new route is available as part of the Rush Hour: Season Ticket, granting immediate access to the Boston – Providence Route, and the Dresden and London Victoria routes as they release, for $39.99 / £34.99 / €39.99, or purchase the Boston – Providence Route individually for $29.99 / £24.99 / €29.99. New operators can pick up the Train Sim World 2: Rush Hour Deluxe Edition bundle which includes Train Sim World 2 and the Rush Hour expansion, priced at $49.99 / £44.99 / €49.99, or they can take a test-drive as Train Sim World 2 joins the Xbox Game Pass subscription on PC and Xbox consoles.
Alongside Rush Hour, a major update for the existing Train Sim World 2 simulation has been released for free on all platforms. This updates the game to Unreal Engine 4.26, adds new visuals like distance field shadows, an 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 miles (70 km) route between Boston and Providence.
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 1830s, with players taking control of the modern Amtrak ACS-64 or striking MBTA F40PH-3C as they pass through busy commuter stations.
