    My favorite four of the ten:

    Explore an open world - I love nosing around, seeing what I can find

    Tutorials and guides - I'm new to the genre, so definitely need these!

    Play at your pace - if I want to relax after a hard day, I can just grab a glass of wine and experience the line from a passenger's point of view

    Optimised for Xbox One - probably the biggest of the four - very glad this has been brought over to the console!

    A tutorial for the signals? Heavy Haul was first on PC, got all those tutorials, and still never got anything on signals! Hope these tutorials get on the PC too...

    No Xbox No Reason!
    Jay, can you teel us how the PC and Xbox version will be related? (future DTG strategy)
    PC is primary > every new content will be at first released for PC
    PC & Xbox simultaneously > new content will be released simultaneously for both (RT and NEC come independently at some timeframe)

    I'm almost sure PC content will be created first for testing, then Xbox will get the updates later on down the line. This platform was already difficult enough porting to consoles, they are still tweaking with the mechanics before any other DLC is released for Xbox. I'm just thankful that they already did the impossible. We will see more content that PC has but it will take a longer timeframe I'm sure.

    Well I agree with you let's see and if it was difficult and already took the first step we'll go for more, although I certainly do not think much more than PC but if it's closer

    Certainly doesn’t seem like this currently unless drastic changes happen in the upcoming update? The larger stations such as Paddington and Reading can be like ghost towns with virtually no passengers and regarding the sounds it can be as quiet as a mouse with no ambient noise or station announcements.

    They didnt change that, so its simply not true.
    https://mixer.com/DentingBoot?vod=23025206 --- Around Minute 52

    Paddington still sounds like a dead Station excluding the Sounds of the Train... And the Passengers are still Stupid as hell.

    But seriously, it cant be so hard adding some kind of Ambient noises to the Stations?
    Just as a smal comparison:

    "Stunning, true-to-life environments" btw

    Why ambient noises weren't added from the start is beyond me. We don't even need service announcements to start off with, the generic safety announcements will do for now, provided by the real voice, not the in-game one.

    There are plenty available online, such as here:

    So apparently the "packed full of tutorials" is still just the original tutorials from PC. And there's no signal tutorial. I was hoping to see some more in there that might make YouTubers less confused by trains. (lol)
