Developer Corbie Games and publisher Iceberg Interactive, the team behind hits such as Killing Floor and The Sojourn, are finally ready to let their latest game, Railroad Corporation, leave the station.
The railroad building simulator, set in the golden era of steam engines during the 19th century, will finally be leaving Steam early access on November 18th.
Players will be able to lay down tracks, dig tunnels and raise bridges to connect their dream railroad, using historically accurate locomotives as from the 1800s. Railroad Corporation also features several strategic elements outside of building your tracks; from lobbying politicians for better land deals to building new technology to compete with your rivals.
The current version of Railroad Corporation already includes many changes added during their early access period. The biggest addition is a Sandbox Mode for more casual simulation play, where there are no time limits or restrictions on the player at all. The games Challenge Mode is still the main draw, players must solve a number of difficult objectives to move forward, from building a certain amount of track under budget to connecting several rail lines together.
The full release of the game will include more content, such as a second chapter where players can start their own companies to compete against rival AI corporations, with an added stock market feature to allow players the ability to buy and sell shares to grow their railway empire. Of course, the games multiplayer will also be updated, allowing players to connect and compete against friends as well.
Railroad Corporation is the first simulator title from Iceberg Interactive and is shaping up to be a big hit with its crisp presentation and focus on historical accuracy. Players can still enter its early access period on Steam now, before the games official launch.
