Chatham, Kent, 18th September 2020 - Train Simulator 2021 has now arrived on PC with a new collection of routes, improved Steam Workshop feature and a Deluxe Edition that includes a brand-new experience with the West Coast Main Line South. Take control of authentic licensed locomotives from around the world and explore real-world routes with the ultimate railway hobby.

Marvel at the mix of modern and historic infrastructure, including the striking Forth Rail Bridge, as you drive a ScotRail BR Class 68 on the Fife Circle Line. Step aboard hard-working traction such as the DB BR 648 to discover the picturesque Norddeutsche-Bahn from Kiel to Lübeck. Take the throttle of the motive power like the F7 on Clinchfield Railroad and drive across the magnificent Appalachian Mountains. Three unique routes with lots to explore.

 

Get the Deluxe Edition and you’ll also be able to enjoy the pinnacle of high-speed travel in the UK with West Coast Main Line South between London Euston and Birmingham. This brand-new 113-mile route is the authentic recreation of one of the most important railway corridors in the UK. Drive the Class 390 ‘Pendolino’ as it tilts its way up to 125 mph, showcasing a brand-new licensed operator in Train Simulator for the first time, Avanti West Coast.

 

Whatever your route of choice in Train Simulator 2021, you can look to the Steam Workshop to find community-created Scenarios with new search tools that allow you to discover Workshop creations without having to leave Train Simulator. There are thousands of community creations to try and the improved tools allow you to filter by what you own, giving you easy access to new Scenarios ready to drive. Whatever you love about trains, Train Simulator lets you take your hobby to the next level.
