What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a small developer team Early Access gives us the chance to bring our latest developments of the game right to our playerbase. Without long delays we can have the much appreciated feedback of you - the players - and build on that to create a truely unique railroading experience for everyone. With our roadmap in mind and our hard working team we have made a huge leap forward in the last year and we will continue to do so. Our vision is to implement the ideas and expectations of our growing fanbase to be able to develop a railroading game that every railfan enjoys!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planing on exiting The Early access status within one year after the initial release.”

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

“For the full version of the game we would like to add more features like modding and workshop support, more maps and industries. Also we plan on adding towns with AI characters and passenger service.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“With the current version of the game you get a fully playable and working game with all the important features, including: Single and multiplayer experience - track laying - placing switches, trestles, landfills - removable vegetation - placing facility buildings - buy - upgrade and customize rolling stock - fully interactive first person locomotives - rolling stock and industries - a level system - and much more. The entire early access version has been in a closed alpha for several months. We have put a lot of effort into debugging and testing to reach this high quality standard. We can truly say that our game is stable to play and would like to get to know YOU as a member of the RAILROADS ONLINE experience!”

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

“We plan on not changing the price after the game has left the early access stage. However price changes may be possible depending on the amount of additional content that was added to the game and to adjust to current inflation rates.”

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

“The community plays a crucial role in our Early Access development. You will be able to make comments and sugestions here in our Steam community and on our Discord server.
We are very exited to hear your feedback, suggestions and ideas!”
