    So am I. I am 1000% definitely buying it, when it releases. I am very looking forward to the Brighton Mainline: London Victoria to Brighton with the Class 387 Gatwick Express and Bahnstrecke Riesa - Dresden, including the ICE and DB BR 101 as layers (hopefully).

    Because everybody owns the 406, but not everybody has the 403. I think this decision was totally fine.

    It's an impressive amount of content for £25 and a day 1 purchase for me!

    Really excited for the Xbox Series X upgrades too, let's hope it improves the draw distance and shadows.

    If they have ADDED an airport link, and some other bits to the TS 2021 Dresden offering, then... wow... that's like, pretty amazing. And then you have 50 miles of London-Brighton..... and an all-new Amtrak route.

    Wowsers.

    Really, wowsers. This is an incredibly good package.

    And it has a line for the DB BR 101.... Oh My Facebooking Google.....!

    Really excited for this update, especially London-Brighton. Definitely in the camp hoping the branch down to Lewes is also included and linked up to East Coastway for those who have the pack, allowing services through to Eastbourne from London.

    potentially Brighton is going to look pretty cool, with the GEX, Southern 377 and dlc 313 all operating services.. assuming the respective packs know which locos you have and the service layers are updated to substitute in the different trains.

    Either way, very happy with this!
    One other wish is to PLEASE make sure the TSW2 PS4 save file can transfer to the PS5 upgrade version of the game.... so many routes I’ve had to restart progress on from moving between TSW > TSW2 preserved on PS4 > TSW2 preserved PS4 version played via PS5.... please don’t make me start from scratch again with the actual PS5 version of the game... much as I’d appreciate getting quadruple the trophies, it is quite dispiriting to be repeatedly zapped back to the tutorial with all your progress obliterated :)

    now let me give you my money once again DTG!!

    The hardware of the new consoles does that already. It's nearly a night and day difference.. so optimizations can easily be spent on other aspects as well. 60 fps and loading times below 10 seconds are already there.

    Really excited about the Brighton Main Line and can't wait to play it. Hope Rush Hour will mean the end of having to sit at a station for 60 seconds (sometimes longer) while passengers are loading, although a packed platform might justify those long loading times.

    Also mentions improved visuals too. The Series X already has improved frame rates and loading times so I'd be hoping for a few extras to that.

    " Also included is the high-speed line for IC (DB BR 101 required) and ICE services (DB BR 406 ICE 3M required)."

    But since TSW2 is required, and SKA is included with TSW2, everybody already has the ICE 3M.....

    I don't think that's quite right. I'd be flabbergasted if there's not an Acela DLC for Boston-Providence at some point. It would be leaving lots of money on the table as its one of the most requested US locos. I'm sure there's similar for the Brighton and Dresden routes.

    I'm so pleased to get a proper Northeast Corridor route for TSW 2, with 125 mph running to boot.

    Dovetail, if you need a reference for the safety systems on the corridor, the Open NEC project is that way. :)

    So moving collection across, yes... but it’s specifically ensuring the save progress carries across to the PS5 version which is inconsistent for games that have delivered a next gen upgrade version so far... really hoping DTG can sort this for the PS5 version of the game; I don’t know that the same issues exist for XSX upgrade paths

    Yes, the 65mi / 105km is with branches included:

      • Bahnstrecke Riesa - Dresden – This 65-mile route features a variety of branches including Meißen with the S1, Dresden Flughafen with the S2 and Großenhain. Also included is the high-speed line for IC (DB BR 101 required) and ICE services (DB BR 406 ICE 3M required).

    Don't worry I'll save my ammo for Outriders later :)

    I just can't imagine how these points can be even more improved when so much is already done just because of the hardware. But time will tell! It's a good sign that they think of dedicated optimizations anyway.

    Will there be optimisation updates alongside this? I can imagine my poor standard Ps4 struggling on the routes in the pack.

    A question for DTG. Out of interest, will the Rush Hour routes and those converted in the future have the option to be played in “standard” TSW2 mode without the Rush Hour features activated if required?

    Yeah, but it already does that right now on Series X, and presumably Series S and PS5 (Series X is the only one I have firsthand experience with).

    I'll be quite disappointed if there aren't improvements to draw distance, distant scenery, shadowing, HDR10 support, etc.

    Might wanna temper expectations on this a little. I don't know the specifics of the track speed limits, but per the timetable it's 25 min to go 32 miles from Route 128 to Providence, so would imagine the 150mph section is quite a bit shorter.

    The 150 mph bits are quite short, unfortunately. "With a 71:23 gear ratio, the Acela is designed with a top speed of 165 mph (266 km/h) and reaches a maximum speed of 150 mph (240 km/h) in regular service on three sections of track totaling 33.9 miles (55 km) in Rhode Island and Massachusetts"

    I saw someone (can’t recall who) saying the Germans had got the rough end of the deal again with this route. I don’t know where they get that notion, it looks pretty good to me, the whole pack does. I’ll certainly be getting the 101 as well, as soon as it is in a sale. Lovely stuff.

    On XBOX it is meant to be a smart delivery upgrade which should mean that progress transfers

    Players who enjoy German content, including me, can have no complaints. Apart from the wealth of German routes and locos already in the catalog, just look at what's coming up in the Roadmap. As an American, I can speak with justification about the "rough end".:)

    Well, my game save data from TSW2 and TSW2020 came across from PS4 - PS5 with no issues. You shouldn't have lost any progress if you transferred your game save data via PS cloud or USB storage.

    We don't know how the upgrade will work yet but a lot of other games which now have PS5 versions, the game save data transferred across from the PS4 version if you upgraded.

    Hopefully at some point they'll use the 387 model and make a Class 377/6, which is used on some Brighton Main Line services and would add a bit of variety to the route.
