From Press Release:
KENT, U.K. — Feb. 21, 2023 — Dovetail Games, developer and publisher of authentic simulation titles, today release new and upgraded Train Sim World 3 content focusing on American routes and locomotives. Out now on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, the individual items of DLC includes Amtrak’s Acela® and Fallen Flag locomotives from Union Pacific. Bundles in the form of the Train Sim World 3: U.S. Passenger Bundle and Train Sim World 3: U.S. Freight Bundle are also available on all platforms as well as Starter Packs.
The flagship addition for passenger train fans is the iconic Amtrak’s Acela®, now available in Train Sim World as a locomotive Add-on for the first time. This high-speed passenger train celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2020 and continues to ferry Americans through the Northeast Corridor. A section of this route, Northeast Corridor: New York – Trenton, forms separately a new route for Train Sim World 3, including NJ TRANSIT’s 7,100 horsepower ALP-46 to run alongside the Acela in this passenger-heavy route.
“Dovetail Games’ growth and expansion of their simulation software offers an amazing way to explore this popular route in ways that wouldn’t otherwise be possible,” said Kerry McKelvey, Amtrak’s VP of Marketing. “Amtrak is excited to bring yet another new section of the Northeast Corridor in Train Sim World 3.”
The upgraded Northeast Corridor: Boston – Providence route, first seen in the Train Sim World 2: Rush Hour release now features Train Sim World 3’s weather and lighting improvements. American diesel-hauled passenger services will also appear here, courtesy of MBTA’s F40PC-3C locomotive and Cab Car capable of a top-speed of 90 miles-per-hour. Train Sim World 3 players can purchase this route separately if they don’t already own it or will receive upgrades for free if they do.
Matt Peddlesden, Executive Producer at Dovetail Games added, “Amtrak’s Acela® leads the way for luxury high speed travel on the Northeast Corridor and we have long held the ambition to bring this icon to Train Sim World 3. In this new Add-on, players can operate this amazing train not just on the Boston – Providence route but also our new New York to Trenton route Add-on. Both of these routes allow the player to reach speeds of up to 150 miles per hour!”
Freight fans can now enjoy the colorful selection of SD70ACe locomotives arriving through the Union Pacific Heritage Collection celebrating, defunct railroads of decades past. These loco’s can run in six Scenarios on the previously released Sherman Hill: Cheyenne – Laramie route, which will receive an overhaul to introduce the new weather and lighting features at the center of Train Sim World 3.
Tribute liveries from Union Pacific’s real-world heritage fleet honor well-known Fallen Flag railroads, from ‘the Katy’ and ‘Mo-Pac’, to the Denver & Rio Grande and Southern Pacific. Their colors adorn six unique SD70ACe locomotives which can be operated in six new Scenarios in-game.
Train Sim World 3: US Freight Bundle also includes Cajon Pass: Barstow – San Bernardino, featuring BNSF ES44C4 and SD40-2 locomotives hauling mile-long freight through California as they negotiate the 85-mile route. The Training Center is important for new operators to learn and practice the skills required to move these leviathans of American railroading.
U.S. Super Bundle
Railfans new to Train Sim World 3 keen on everything the U.S.A. has to offer can go all-in with Train Sim World 3: U.S. Super Bundle, combining both passenger and freight bundles into one awesome package.
