    So I plan to buy TSW 2 on my PC on Steam soon, since there are some discounts at the moment. I really want to have Main-Spessart Bahn in my collection and I saw that it is currently reduced to 22€, as part of the pack "Train Sim World 2020: Digital Deluxe Edition". If I buy this pack (which is not TSW 2 but TSW 2020), will the included add-ons also be available in TSW 2? This is an important point to me as MSB brings layers to many routes...

    Hi.
    TSW 2 and TSW 2020 are considered different games. TSW 2020 is no longer supported/updated by DTG since TSW 2 was launched.
    If you want to fully enjoy MSB, which recently was updated by the preservation team, you need to look at the TSW 2 add-on only.

    From my experience, MSB add-on goes as low as 60% discount during top sales campaigns so if you're not in a rush you can wait a bit more for a better price.

    As the game launched on Epic store recently, you can check them out too since you're starting fresh. By purchasing from Epic you support the developer more since their store charges lower fees for using the platform.

    Lastly, you can check out regularly https://store.dovetailgames.com/eu/es/sale where they have sales just as big as on Epic or Steam and since it's their own store, they get full support by buying directly from DTG.
    Enjoy!

    If you buy TSW2020 then yes, if you buy TSW2 as well, then you will also get the updated versions of these routes in TSW2. All except North East Corridor which is the only route that is TSW2020.

    I also don’t recommend you buy it from Epic. TSW2020 isn’t available there and a lot of the older routes aren’t available there yet.

    Yes TSW2020 digital deluxe edition contains the base game. But TSW2020 will not get updated.

    If the TSW2020 digital deluxe edition is cheap, Then it’s a good way to get the routes. When you then buy TSW2, the TSW2020 routes will all appear in TSW2 and will be the latest versions.

    Another tip that I can share with you is regarding sale campaigns.
    I have observed that around the bigger sale campaigns of the year that happen on Steam, DTG will sometimes have a head start and offer sales in their store. Later, once the sale ends on Steam, you might get another week of sales on their own store again.

    On their own store, you can find sales even without any big early event (such as summer, winter, black Friday etc.) and the discounts are quite big. I check weekly that link that I shared to see if anything is happening.

    When I was playing TS, on that page they had weekly sales for a handful of routes and I grew my collection by buying from there as well.

    If you buy TSW2020 first, I think you will get an extra 5% discount on TSW2 (originally intended for veteran players upgrading). I'm not sure if this still works but on Steam it still displays a 5% discount for me because I own TSW2020.

    Cheers

    Yes, you are correct. The Rush Hour deluxe edition is only 10% off, regardless of the loyalty discount.

    Cheers
