What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access is a great way for us to receive feedback from the community and incorporate it into the game. We want Railroad Corporation to be the best it can be and receiving feedback from real players at this stage is a huge help, especially for such a complex game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect Railroad Corporation will be in Early Access for around 4 to 6 months.”

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

“The full version will include the game’s complete story and the ability to continue to play all missions after your goals are complete. These later missions will feature AI opponents, a stock market mechanic and more. Multiplayer will gain a new map, and our updates will focus on game balancing, bug fixes and general gameplay improvements. We do plan on including the most popular community suggestions and ideas, so please feel free to leave your feedback on the Steam discussion board!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game includes the first chapter of the story, alongside a full Tutorial and a multiplayer Beta. There are still some rough edges, such as lack of balance, possible bugs and missing/incomplete visual content. For a list of all the features currently implemented in the game please refer to the "About This Game" section.”

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

“The game will release into Early Access at a discount - the price will increase during final development until the full release.”

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

“We plan on paying very close attention to the forums and social media to implement as much feedback as we can in a timely manner. Whether it’s bug reports, ideas or general constructive criticism; we love to hear from you!”

Railroad Corporation Sandbox Update

Hi everyone,

We are really happy to finally be releasing one of the biggest updates to Railroad Corporation: the sandbox mode! This new update will allow you to fully focus on expanding your train network and growing your corporation, without limitations, timers or objectives. It also means that the game will be more customisable since it lets you experiment and practice in a brand-new gameplay mode.

There are two new sandbox maps with randomisation of city locations and production facilities, and an option to have all locomotives pre-researched from the very beginning. There are also various options for amount of initial capital and overdraft, which lets you set the level of difficulty that you wish to play.

Railroad Corporation Early Access Roadmap

Hello everyone!

First of all, we’ve just released a patch that fixes some outstanding issues:

Patch notes: July 4th
• Money balance issue showing it as zero from time to time.
• An error that could cause loading to freeze at 63%, 75% or 100%.
• The memory leak issue of Mission 6.
• Updated localisation.

Secondly, we want to thank you for your support and feedback that’s been sent in so far. We really appreciate your ideas and suggestions, so keep them coming! Many of you have been asking about an Early Access Roadmap in the past few weeks, and today we are happy to finally be able to share our plans with you!

July Update - Sandbox
New sandbox maps (small/medium sized) with extra settings
• Random city location with random production buildings (The game generates seeds so you can share the same locations among friends!)
• Either start with just the Best Friend locomotive or start with everything researched.
• Enable/disable: Contracts generation, buy/construct production buildings, lawn spawning on/off, staff etc.

Free Play campaign mission
• Enable mission objectives, only disable time limits or disabled objectives completely.
• Research and Portfolio progress made in the actual campaign is ignored in Free Play.

A small update to multiplayer
• A separate scenario of the current multiplayer map will be added with an extended goal, larger initial capital and starting with two researched trains. Even though these changes are related to the same map. We think this will make multiplayer sessions more dynamic and will provide you with a new experience while new maps for multiplayer are coming.

August Update - Challenges
Adds the challenges category: unique separate one-map scenarios for true hardcore players
• The point of challenges is to make it not easy but possible to pass. With deadlines, money limits etc. This is for players who would like to try a more challenging mode rather than the one in campaign or if Chapter One is completed.

September Update - Multiplayer
• Adds three multiplayer maps with different size and preset conditions. One of the maps will be a mirrored one to try out a similar conditions scenario for each team. Another map will be suitable for random settings, making it similar to the sandbox settings (including initial conditions and cities/production shuffling)
• Additional multiplayer options similar to the sandbox settings, including cities and production shuffling.

Fall Update - Chapter Two
• Chapter Two added: six new campaign missions.
• AI competitor
• Stock market feature
• Steam Workshop integration

Please note that more information will be given about each individual update, the closer we are to its completion.

We invite the community to take part in our Discord Q&A to discuss the roadmap!
We are here to answer your questions. The Q&A is starting now (5PM CET) and running for 2 hours (until 7PM CET). Click here to gain access to our server and join the conversation!
