Railway Empire sets off for all-new destinations! Mexico DLC Out Now!



¡Viva Mexico! It’s time to pack your bags and head to the station – Kalypso Media is excited to announce the next stop on Railway Empire’s never-ending quest for entrepreneurial domination.
In Railway Empire: Mexico, ambitious rail tycoons everywhere will finally break free from the North American border and expand their business to the varied and challenging landscapes of Mexico. A variety of new and challenging missions will take you from the arid northern regions of the country all the way to the dense jungles of the south, as you strive to boost Mexico’s economy in a new scenario taking place from 1873-1893. The huge new map will be playable in both Free Game and Sandbox modes, while a range of new cities, goods and engines add even more opportunity for economic expansion.

As well as the new content, the DLC also introduces a new night mode, allowing players to switch between day and night whenever they wish for an all-new atmospheric take on the game, and a prime opportunity to take lots of lovely screenshots! (Click on the "i" button in the upper left corner of the UI to find this option)

Update Notes

About This Game

United States, 1830: ‘The New World’ is in its ascendancy. Industry is booming, and the race is on to establish the most dominant and powerful rail empire in all of North America. It’s time to outthink and outmaneuver your competitors as you lead your company into the 20th century!



In Railway Empire, you will create an elaborate and wide-ranging rail network, purchase over 40 different trains modelled in extraordinary detail, and buy or build railway stations, maintenance buildings, factories and tourist attractions to keep your travel network ahead of the competition. You’ll also need to hire and manage your workforce if you want to ensure an efficient train service, whilst also develop over 300 technologies ranging from mechanical improvements to the trains themselves to workplace infrastructures and advanced amenities as you progress through five eras of technological innovations.



However, you can’t just build and research your way to the top – the competition never sleeps, and to keep your business on track you’ll have to survive against up to three rival tycoons. To get to the top you may have to resort to more cutthroat tactics as you attack and sabotage your opponents through raids and industrial espionage.
