Brisbane – 13th November, 2013: Launching today, N3V Games is proud to announce the arrival of Trainz: A New Era to Kickstarter Australia. Trainz: A New Era is the latest project announced by N3V Games in the highly popular Trainz Simulator franchise. With a new game engine purpose built from the ground up, rail fans and casual gamer alike will discover new levels of realism and a next generation experience.

From the very first edition of Trainz back in 2001, our community has been closely involved in helping us make the world's favourite rail simulator. Over the years you've told us about the things you like, the things you don't, and now with the community’s help through Kickstarter – Trainz: A New Era will deliver the high-end simulation experience that’s so far only been dreamed of.

"Kickstarter is the perfect marriage. Its creative industries putting together projects and passionate fans finding the project they love and then pledging their support to that project. This means that we can be adding all sorts of features that you'd have to be waiting years to see if we didn't have the Kickstarter process.” Tony Hilliam – Managing Director, N3V Games

Trainz: A New Era Kickstarter is now live on the Kickstarter Australia Platform.
