What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to involve the SimRail community in improving details so that the game can become the best railway simulator that meets the expectations of players from around the world.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate SimRail will exit early access phase at the turn of Q1/Q2 2024, due to the large amount of new features and content that the community expects.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Planned features to be added in the full version:
  • Steam locomotives.
  • Controller support.
  • Shunting operations.
  • Winter weather effects.
  • Adding more playable signal boxes.
We are still working on game optimization and thus performance problems might occur during early access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Game currently includes complete scenery that contains nearly 500 km of routes created with the use of real geodetic data: Katowice - Sędziszów and Katowice - Warszawa. Six vehicles are available for players to drive: EN57, EU07, ET25 Dragon, E186 Traxx, ED250 Pendolino EMU, EN76/EN96 Elf EMU and four types of passenger and cargo carriages. Singleplayer and multiplayer modes are already available, with possibility of play as train driver or traffic dispatcher. Available features include dynamic weather, realistic physics model and sounds.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The decision will be made before the premiere depending on market conditions.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Discussion forum is available for players to share their suggestions and report bugs.”
