    May be an editor will be included this time?
    A sense of competition as other Polish Game coming soon?

    No. There will not be an editor. The new Polish game will have little effect on TSW either, certainly not with this year’s update. It’s not even out yet, it could be rubbish for all we know.

    For the update I would expect one or both of the following improvements...
    New passengers
    Better route map

    ...and possibly the first steam loco. There is an update to UE4.26 also.

    That will be the update to Unreal 4.26, hopefully along some new features and updates, hopefully Livery Editor and Scenario Planner v2 :) And possibly a new base-game pack with SEH, Clinchfield and Hamburg-Lübeck I would suspect :)

    Ah, but they will have them earlier. It’s always possible to wait now and not buy anything in case they are the routes you can get later in a bundle. You can save money but you have to wait, and you can never be certain what will be included, although the three named above are likely candidates. The bundles are really for new players to get into the game without having to pay a huge amount in one go.

    Correct, but isn't that the same in TS and with TSW2020 as well? I mean, they could make three new routes and hold them back to release them at the same time, but that's probably not really popular either, so what else should they do? :)

    Check the roadmap video today. A major update for free, if I understood Sam right.

    Sam’s 99.99% certain it will be free.

    Wait for the backlash if it isn’t!

    It likely will be nothing more than a few bug fixes, if anything at all.

    Sam said flat-out in the stream that steam will NOT be included. I doubt we'll see steam before next year.

    I doubt they'd make such a big deal over a few bug fixes or call it an annual update. I expect it will be the engine upgrade to UE 4.26, and (Sam hinted heavily) will include a new feature or two which DTG want to be "a surprise." It might also include the long-heralded memory optimization, which would cure or be the basis for curing a host of ills, from low framerates to layers in consoles to the Bakerloo timetable.

    At least according to what was said on stream, this would have it's own place on the roadmap, so I doubt that (which probably applies to new passengers as well). I think it will be something "smaller", something along the lines of working railroad crossings, PIS,.... Not sure about livery editor and scenario planner, maybe they receive an update

    I can’t recall if he went so far as to completely rule it out but I agree it is highly unlikely they will have progressed far enough with the work by then.

    I doubt they will package the 3 newest TSW2 routes in.....maybe just one. The bundle may look something like Clinchfield, HMA & LGV with one of the loco DLCs for the deluxe version (imo)

    I wouldn't mind a Scottish highland route. I bet it won't be a swedish one. And not Passenger announcements, because they're not finished with PIS yet. (Maybe after that?)

    Since there's some speculation in here, I'll clear up what's been said so far.

    The core update will be several good-sized improvements to the game. Steam is an entirely separate project. While it's theoretically possible both things arrive at the same time I'd bet against that happening.

    We won't detail what the update includes until close to the time because we want to keep some things as a (pleasant) surprise.

    At the time of writing I am reliably informed (from the top of the company) that this update will be free to players. I left it at 99.99% certain because things change. There are any number of reasons we might change position on this, and as much as it's unlikely we can't rule it out to 100%.

    Hope that scenario planer will be tuned in this update at least with consist builder.
    Having the ability to interact with 2D-map to see train routing in detail, portals for trian to come and leave game and placing rolling stocks on siding will be superb.
