PC And Console Strategy Game Railway Empire Gets Release Date

While Kalypso is best known for publishing the Tropico series, the company works with a wide-array of strategy and adventure-focused games. And one of its upcoming titles has an interesting distinction. It’s the first train simulation on current-gen consoles.

Railway Empire, a “tycoon simulation game” according to the game’s press release, covers the Westward expansion period from 1830-1930 in the North America Frontier era. While the game will not have multiplayer support, mods will be available through Steam Workshop that, according to a press release, “change existing scenarios and stats from trains, techs and economy system.” It wasn’t stated whether these mods will also be available on console.
