Kalypso Media and Gaming Minds Studios have announced that it'll release the upcoming tycoon simulation game Railway Empire for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on 26th January.
Pre-orders are already available on, which will give you instant access to closed Beta – featuring the first two campaign levels and a tutorial with more content being in the run up to launch. Players will also get an exclusive custom paint job for the ‘Super Hudson’ locomotive and a 15% discount on the launch price.
Here's an official description of Railway Empire from Kalypso Media:
In Railway Empire, you will create an elaborate and wide-ranging rail network, purchase over 40 different trains modelled in extraordinary detail, and buy or build railway stations, maintenance buildings, factories and tourist attractions to keep your travel network ahead of the competition. You’ll also need to hire and manage your workforce if you want to ensure an efficient train service, whilst also develop over 300 technologies ranging from mechanical improvements to the trains themselves to workplace infrastructures and advanced amenities as you progress through five eras of technological innovations.
However, you can’t just build and research your way to the top – the competition never sleeps, and to keep your business on track you’ll have to survive against up to three rival tycoons. To get to the top you may have to resort to more cutthroat tactics as you attack and sabotage your opponents through raids and industrial espionage.
Will you be picking Railway Empire up when it launches on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on 26th January?
