About Railway Empire

About this game

It’s time to outthink and outmaneuver your competitors as you lead your company into the 20th century with strategy simulation Railway Empire.

With this Steam PC key, you'll discover the 1830s USA, the 'New World' in its ascendancy. Industry is booming, and the race is on to establish the most dominant and powerful rail empire in all of North America.

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. 

YOUR OFFICIAL RAILWAY EMPIRE STEAM PC KEY GIVES YOU:

  • Exploit the economic opportunities of the United States in an extensive campaign, working your way step by step from coast to coast across this great continent.
  • Lead your Railway Empire to success by establishing a comprehensive rail network and optimizing transportation of passengers and goods.
  • Master challenges and objectives through a range of scenarios, or create your perfect railway network in construction mode without any financial pressure.
  • Over 40 historically accurate locomotives and more than 30 different wagons can be acquired over the course of the game, and must be put to use in the best way in order to take advantage of their strengths and weaknesses.
  • Invest in over 300 new technologies across five different eras to progress and maximize the potential of your rail network.
  • Compete with up to three rival companies, and even sabotage their efforts with the use of bandits and spies.
  • ‘Ride Along’ feature allows you to explore your rail network and beautiful scenery from the driver’s cabin from a first-person perspective.

The Elephant Who Never Forgets
Verified purchase
A prime example of a company that simply resuses the base game and changes city names and charges for a new DLC - and then bans cistomers from steam for pointing i it. Rip off merchants. The good news is there's yet another DLC coming out called "Floggin a Dead Game". It merges all the DLCs with the base game (the landscapes remain a regurgitated jumble so you'll not notice much change) and replaces all their little cartoon employee characters with non-binary blobs call Pat. It has 6 brand new trains - although they look exactly like the old ones with new names. Can't wait!

Very good game. Negatives: The cpu opponents are a tad annoying in their voice comments/personalities. Only a few songs as background music. Game used extra launcher but no extra account is necessary. Positives: The game runs fine and is well-made. Lots of models for locomotives and buildings. Has scenario and sandbox mode. Economic simulation is sound. Creative placement of rail lines possible. Did not encounter any bugs in dozens of hours. Recommended for everyone who likes sandbox, building or strategy games.

Great game. Graphics are awesome. I haven't figured out the signals yet, and they are a pain. However, it's a fun simulation.
