If you love trams and simulation games but play on consoles, Dovetail Games and ViewApp announced a new treat is coming your way.
During a live broadcast dedicated mainly to train sim world 3 hosted by Dovetail, a console version of TramSim by ViewApp has been announced. While the specific consoles have not been announced, Train Sim World is available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One, so this may go the same route. However, we must wait for the official word on this before drawing any conclusions.
The game has been available on PC via Steam since late 2020, and console players will get a Deluxe Edition that includes both. TramSim Vienna and TramSim Munichmore him Deposit Vienna and ULF type DLC. This means that there is a lot of content available out of the box.
A release date hasn’t been announced, but it’s coming “soon.” We also received a promise that more details will be announced as we get closer to launch.
The game allows you to explore the two cities reproduced in great detail with dynamic road traffic, pedestrians and other AI-controlled trams all around you. In Vienna, you’ll be able to drive the Flexity, the retro-style Type E2 and the ultra-low-floor Type ULF trams, while Munich will offer you the chance to drive the iconic Type R2.2b. The DLC that includes the old Type E1 trams in Vienna does not appear to be part of the package.
While this type of sim has been confined to the PC for a long time (in the west at least, it trains sims like Densha de Go! have always been popular on consoles in Japan), developers have recently started expanding to consoles, so it’s great to see another expansion of their user base outside of the regular Steam ecosystem.
