The game launches on 18th August but can be pre-ordered right now on the iOS App Store and on the Google Play Store. If you pre-order now, then you will also get the “A1 Tornado” for free.

Price

The game is not free and will be available for a premium of $7.99.

Size

The initial install size of the game is 4GB.

Features available at launch

At launch, TS3 will allow you to drive trains in structures sessions and to take charge of AI trains and will also let you create your own driving sessions through the creation of customized locomotives and rolling stock. There are four routes to choose from and 25 locomotives available at launch. Additional routes, sessions, locomotives and rolling stock can be purchased through the in-game store.

The routes

Each route is located in a different region of the world, and they are:

  • The Rockies
  • Europe
  • The USA
  • The Aussie Outback

Future features

N3V Games has a number of features in the pipeline for TS3, some of which are:

  • New Realistic In-Cab Control Mode
  • Multiplayer Driver/Surveyor
  • New World Building Tools
  • More Train Placement & AI Options
  • Localized versions in 10+ languages

You needn’t be a train veteran to play this game as players will have a choice to choose between easy and a more realistic control set.

There are also no limits on the camera, and you can go from satellite view to cab view, whatever looks the most appealing to you.

Trainz Simulator 3 seems to be quite the ambitious title considering its price, but it also promises a lot of features that will be included at some point.

Will it be able to live up to its price?
