    OMG this is huge! Thank you for making it free for existing users. This is a lot of information to take in. So will the new US route be exclusive to the deluxe edition?

    I must have skipped over that part I was too excited! :D

    Obviously it won't be New York again if it's west coast.

    This is great news! Train Sim World 2020 Edition has a much better selection of routes than the current Train Sim World base game does. The new 'journey' system sounds interesting (I presume this is an expansion of service mode) and the overhauled User Interface also sounds good.

    I also look forward to hearing more news about the new west coast USA route. This is much better than having a fourth east coast route in a row.

    Hopefully there will be further expansion of features over time in future editions, making the game even better than it already is.

    Ooh, brand new WEST COAST USA ROUTE! WOOO!

    Also very curious about the differences between "Journey" mode and service mode!

    At an additional, albeit discounted, price if you don't have them already: "For the new routes included in Train Sim World 2020 (Main-Spessart Bahn, Long Island Railroad, Northern-Trans Pennine), you’ll have the option to upgrade to get any of these you don’t already own for a discounted price."

    So Im assuming then for new players whose first taste is TSW 2020, they will be able to buy RT and NEC as addons? I know not everyone is bothered, but I then wonder how the achievement/trophy system is affected or updated. If we can get rid of the car collector trophy as part of this I'm happy ;-)

    Nice, very nice!
    Will the Rapid Transit and Northeast Corridor route be available separate when it aren't in TSW2020 bundle?

    You will be able to use them in TSW2020 if you already own them in TSW

    WAIT? FREE new features for current Train Sim World owners? By Dovetail? Did the CEO of Dovetail finally retire and let Matt take his place?
    Somethings fishy here...

    I see what you mean but really, it's been like that on TS19 for ages. New features are free for all, plus usually a new route to buy. :)

    That are the core system changes/improvements/additions.
    I don't think it will be too different, maybe you will get a better overview about situation and when you complete one service you will have a chance to start another via time skip/rewind forward command.

    I sincerely hope the Journey mode isn't just renamed service mode and actually adds something.
    "Start a Journey on any route and enjoy hundreds of scenarios, service timetables, and jobs to complete around the railway." sounds more like a rework of the existing experience bars rather than actual new mode.

    Maybe journey mode is like a series of scenarios and / or services that you have to complete in order, maybe they flow into one another or transition automatically or something? I don't know, I can't really think of anything else it could be other than rehashed service mode...

    Which would be absolutely fine if you could pick up any train from anywhere and complete that service, walk across to another loco and do that service etc etc

    Just want to get a few things clarified.

    The "new features" don't really have anything to do with TSW2020 other than being released at the same time, right? It's still the same game, and it's getting new features and also a new bundle which includes a new combination of routes, right?
    Is "Train Sim World 2020" going replace the existing Train Sim World bundle and also the main title of the product?

    They are probably making the service mode longer. A week instead of 24 hours maybe?

    Don't know to what extent, or whether there are any other dynamic changes... got a month to wait to find out unless they do a devstream

    At the end of the trailer, it mentioned the new west coast route being free for Digital Deluxe Players. Will that also include the Original Digital Deluxe Edition too [the one that came out with base game last year in June or July]?

    TSW is the game engine. The content is a separate thing, so the "features" of how the game works, the modes etc ARE the game, the routes, locos etc are all content (addons)

    If you owned the old DD version then you retain that content. If you buy 2020 having never owned that old content then you won't get that content included (though if they do what they have done with TSx in the past they will put it out on general sale)

    I'm surprised nobody's picked up on this:

    • Overhauled user interface: It’s now even easier to navigate the main menu, with a streamlined design you’ll be in-game quicker than ever before. Revisions to the in-game interface and HUD allow for a more logical approach to certain tasks, and provide a more in-depth understanding of the timetable/instructions.
    HUD changes, "understanding of timetable and instructions"...
    Aren't these things people have been asking for for months?

    The only thing that first came to my mind was "will it be a separate 100 GB folder?"

    So obviously I'm already into the idea of upgrading ;-)

    Since I bought every DLC I just hope I don't have to rebuy them by any means, would be difficult to explain to my wife ...

    Great News! Can't wait to see what the deluxe route is, and a nice set of new features aswell.

    I also like that they added more routes in the bundle this time, and the choice of routes makes perfect sense. I'm excited to hear more about the features soon and I hope it will be a better launch than "The Big Reveal" we got last time.;)

    I’m intrigued to find out whether we’ll actually see new features of whether this is more a marketing, rebranding sort of thing.

    Pretty much when TS1 get updated every year, it’s simply a few UI changes.

    The reason the new route is free to buyers of the NEW digital deluxe edition is because its price will include the (discounted) cost of the new route. Bottom line: you'll need to cough up some money to buy the new route.

    A Big Thank You to our brothers and sisters at Dovetail, this is brilliant news. Fortunately (Got a new job, thank Christ!) I'll still be out of work until September so I'll be chomping at the bit to get this update.

    Awesome news. Thank you.

    Whilst I don't mind paying, it would be a great thank you to all xbox one founders edition owners to get the new route for free or at a discount. But the new feature sound great
