Yesterday, Dovetail Games announced the upcoming sequel, which will launch on August 6. From their website:
THE EVOLUTION OF TRAIN SIMULATION - COMING 6 AUGUST 2020!
Master iconic locomotives on high-speed services, long freight hauls or precise commuter traffic, and get creative with customisation tools in this advanced sequel. Climb into the cab in Train Sim World 2.
AUTHENTICALLY REPLICATED ROUTES AND LOCOS
Feel the thrill of high-speed inter-city German rail as you push the throttle and climb speeds in the famous DB ICE 3M out of Köln, take on the challenge of hauling long freight across Sand Patch Grade with the CSX AC4400CW, and master the complex operations of the London Underground on the Bakerloo Line. All official licenses, all authentically recreated – you're in the cab and in control.
Personalise your rail journey with two brand new easy-to-use tools. Create your own custom liveries with the Livery Designer that allows you to craft both simple and complex designs to bring your Train Sim World 2 loco liveries to life. Create your own scenario with the Scenario Planner, picking locos and destinations before you jump in and take to the rails - Quick drive, your way.
EXPERIENCE A NEW LEVEL OF REALISM
The proprietary SimuGraph vehicle dynamics engine has evolved – adding realistic adhesion physics for the first time. Feel the slip of wheels in adverse weather, master moving heavy freight and keep control of your loco power on steep inclines! Optimised and upgraded visual fidelity also gives Train Sim World 2 dynamic skies and 4K support.
IMMERSE YOURSELF IN SIMULATION
Get clearer information on instructions, gradient and speed profiles as you drive, including new HUD displays, clarity to the onboard safety systems, brake controls, power meter and accelerometer. A new controller scheme will give great choices on Camera and Driving modes and allows easier access from external camera mode to enter another vehicle in your consist, all while full physics and simulation are still running.
