    Hello I have Train Sim World and I have a question, according to what I Read. Any missing routes that TSW 2020 offers that you don't have will be available for purchase at a discounted price, I see in the ps store there is various discounts there but not for the Main Spessart Bahn its still full price. My question is will the Main Spessart Bahn be available at a discounted rate?
    THANKS

    Hi there, there will be no discount on MSB, LIRR or NTP after TSW 2020 is released, however you will be able to pick up the whole bundle for £24.99 / $29.99 / Euro 29.99.

    Hi TrainSim-Dmitri , don't want to be picky here, but the phrasing from the TSW2020 announcement article did imply to me that you could pick up any route you were missing at a discounted price:
    "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."

    Now we're being told you can only have them bundled together... What if I own MSB and NTP? Then I won't be able to pick up LIRR at a discount, or am I reading this wrong?

    In your case, if you own MSB and NTP then you won't get a discount on LIRR only, however if you decide to buy the Deluxe Edition which includes Caltrain then it will be cheaper than two full route prices (£24.99 + £24.99).

    Routes like LIRR go on sale quite often so you should be able to pick it up when it eventually goes on a sale.

    Do the LIRR, MSB and NTP remain in sold as standalone DLC's or with TSW2020 package they will become available only in TSW package? Like NEC and RT now.

    Long Island Railroad / Main-Spessart Bahn / Northern Trans-Pennine will remain available to purchase separately.

    This is in complete contradiction to the original announcement. Does DTG have an explanation?

    I also find it interesting that the route bundle sells at the same price as TSW2020, which is the bundle + GWE :|

    So when is the next discount on all 3 of those routes then? Cause I need to pick up northern transpennine and Main Spessart Bahn.

    Wait, we don't get a discount? I have have the 3 base routes from TSW + WSR + RSN, so can I not get a discount on only NTP? :| The announcement gave the impression of players being able to get a discount on a route (providing they had TSW).


    I haven't been on my PS4 today, so I haven't had a chance to look at TSW2020 for myself.

    PS4 EU store is showing new Peninsula Corridor with 10% off so it costs £22.49. The DLC does not currently show in the store page of TSW itself.

    I decided to give the game a try hearing about the new update and everything (got a physical version for $20), and thought I wouldn't miss out on much getting it beforehand hearing about discounts for previous owners. So am I just a big fat idiot that should've waited for 2020 to get everything the previous version had plus the new stuff for only $30? So instead I'm out $50 total to get everything? :(

    The deluxe edition is showing up as £40 on the store, I've already got NTP but getting 3 more routes for that price seems ok.

    I’m on PS4 USA and I don’t see a 10% off on the new route it’s showing $29.99 for peninsula corridor. It’s a shame I wanted to play it the day it came out.... TrainSim-Dmitri TrainSim-Matt

    I own TSW as a physical copy. I am looking at purchasing MSB and Peninsula Corridor, I already own NTP , RSN , LIRR. It works out at £47.48 to purchase the two routes. However 2020 Deluxe is £39.99 on PSN.

    My concern is do I lose NEC route as it’s no longer on 2020 ???

    Even though my TSW is Disc not digital for base game. ? Will it auto recognise that I have previously had TSW if I purchase 2020 digital and give me NEC route etc.

    Stop over complicating it, the disk is for the base game, any DLC is STORED on YOUR PS4.. you won’t loose anything it’ll only add the routes you didn’t have..

    This is very poor marketing from DTG and a downright disingenuous post from them as highlighted above. They should really offer a pro-rata discount on the £24.99 minusing off the prorportion of the routes you already own otherwise people are double paying.

    For example, anybody who owned the original TSW should get 25% off as they already own GWE. If you own GWE and NTP then you should get 50% off and so on.

    I’m not over complicating it. You’ve missed my point NEC is base content on TSW. I know I won’t lose DLC, but no one can clarify if NEC base content comes over with purchase of 2020 Deluxe.

    That’s not what it said in the article though is it? It said ANY routes you are missing will be discounted.

    You might need to reread the articles that were released.. NEC isn’t offered in 2020. Not sure why you keep running around the same topic. You only get what is offered MSB, NTP, LIRR. Besides there are other threads you can read that cover the same topic. This one is specifically for discounts.

    This is the part that also confuses me. To my knowledge, in all other circumstances on PS4, buying the digital version of something does not "stack" with your physical game. You simply have two versions of the same game, one digital and one physical. But it would work differently in this situation?

    Matt P covered this topic already.. i have a bunch of digital games so I’m not aware of this issue.. but from what I recall you might have to switch between the “verisons”

    Okay so I'm gonna go ahead and say that is completely insane, if you're correct. Dovetail should just offer the routes included in 2020 at $10 each on PS4 so people with the og physical game can fully integrate their games without issues. Everyone else will simply buy the 2020 base game anyway, correct? I don't see the difference.

    Edit: Or rather offer an "upgrade pack" for physical owners, rather than multiple separate DLC that would only confuse people.
    Edit: Although I do now see the 2020 game is labeled as a "bundle" which makes me wonder if it would actually integrate with the physical game. Could someone from Dovetail please comment on this??

    I own NTP already so getting the deluxe edition worked out at £13 per route I didn't own.

    I might be wrong.. I want to say it works like how I was saying before that post. But I’m not sure.... I agree that having two separate versions is major BS. I’ve been buying digital cuz I’m too lazy to change discs

    Before I turn my PS4 on, I want to know will my original TSW update itself automatically to the new version as many of my games do and if so, if I then go to the store to purchase the new TSW 2020 to get the new routes, will it say you have already purchased this item and stop me buying it? Or will I end up with 2 versions of the same game? Hope this makes sense.

    If you're digital there shouldn't be a problem and they should merge. If you're physical, well that's what I'm trying to find out, as well. I contacted Dovetail for clarification before I risk any $$.

    I have TSW physical disc. And I have purchased TSW 2020 Deluxe version. I can confirm that you don’t lose any DLC or NEC / RT routes from TSW. If you have disc version of TSW it downloads only the routes you don’t already have and uses Disc as base game. You can if you wish Delete TSW and download / Install TSW 2020 base game at any point after purchasing TSW 2020 so It will then run without disc but you won’t have RT / NEC unless you use Disc.

    Hope this helps you ..

    Thank you that is exactly what I was curious about! Still strange that they excluded original routes from the 2020 version though, seems like latecomers will be missing out if they go digital? Anyway, thanks again.

    I already had the game on xbox but fancied giving it ago on ps4 as I had a hunch it might run abit better (it does) anyway, I bought the standard 2020 edition yesterday and along with the three cover routes it also included gwr, nec and rt :) awesome deal tbh, very happy!

    I already have NTP and was planning on getting MSB and LIRR at some stage.
    So I got 2020 Deluxe for €60. Works out a great deal for me as I basically got Cal Train for free because MSB and LIRR are €30 each on their own.

    How many routes do you own?
    Just GWE, NEC and RT? If so, then buying the package for 29,99$ gives you 3 routes: LIRR, NTP and MSB for the price of one.
    The Deluxe Edition for 49,99 would give you also the new Caltrain route. That way you would get 4 routes for the price of 2.

    Well done to DTG for discounting the TSW 2020 routes for existing players as they promised they would in their article. We often criticise them on here when they go wrong but on this occasion praise is deserved for doing the right thing.

    They took their time doing it though after implying that they weren't going to.
