Barcelona, Spain. 27 of July, 2022 - BlitWorks Games is happy to announce that Train Valley - Console Edition (trailer | press kit) is out today on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles at a price of 11.99 USD | EUR. This is the ultimate version of the first installment of the praised train traffic management series that has been receiving fantastic user reviews on Steam, as it has been constant updates and improvements since it first launched on PC. Players will go through campaigns in Europe, Americas, Japan, the URSS and this edition also includes the German DLC, that starts with the I World War and goes to the Fall of the Berlin Wall and the modern Frankfurt Airport.
"Train Valley was a significant milestone for our studio. First, because it was the first "serious" game for PC. Secondly, because we tried our hand at self-publishing on Steam with all that implied: trailers, marketing, business development, community building, and a million other little things" - Alexey Davydov (co-Founder at Flazm)
Build railroads in order to connect cities, tunnels and bridges. New railways are cheap when laid across bare fields, but can be expensive when demolishing forests, villages and other existing structures.
Manage increasing traffic by constructing switches, sidings and spurs so that multiple trains can run without delays, at the same time.
Stay accident-free by precisely controlling trains during crucial moments, using pause for planning (you can build railways and schedule trains while on pause).
Play through 5 seasons: Europe (1830–1980), America (1840–1960), USSR (1880–1980), Japan (1900–2020) and Germany (1830-2020).
Complete the story mode featuring such real-life events as the Gold Rush of 1849, the construction of the Florida Overseas Railroad, World War II, the Cold War, the launch of the first manned space flight Vostok 1, the fall of the Berlin Wall and more.
Explore the game in different game modes: in story mode (5-10 minutes), in random mode (15-20 minutes – the level looks and develops differently every time you launch) or in sandbox-like mode (can be turned on for both story and random modes. It allows you to play without time and money limits).
Discover 30 types of trains – from early steam-powered locomotives to modern high-speed trains, driving 18 types of cars – from old-time passenger cars to hoppers and cisterns and to military-use tank and gun platforms.
