Almost six years ago, Microsoft released Microsoft Train Simulator as part of its Flight Simulator series - the game offered more than 600 miles of re-created railroad routes and a huge level of detail. Microsoft has finally announced a new Train Simulator; a teaser site has surfaced with links to some of the developers' blogs. The new game will be developed by Aces Studio and will build on the Flight Simulator X platform. The teaser page promises more information this year:
"Following the successful release of Microsoft Flight Simulator X, the Aces Studio is using the same technology to develop a new version of Microsoft Train Simulator. Unrelated to our previous Train Simulator development efforts, this version will be an all-new product built on the Flight Simulator X platform, the culmination of 25 years of product development and technology. It's too early to discuss the details of this product, but we look forward to sharing more information later this year. You can also read blog posting from several of the development team members at the links below."
