Dovetail Games, the company behind Train Simulator, said last year that it planned to break into other types of simulation games in the future. One such title is Dovetail Games Fishing, coming to PC in late 2014 with more platforms to follow at a later date. It's being built with Unreal Engine 4, as is the latest version of Train Simulator, likely coming in 2015.

Designer Matt Peddlesden told Engine Driver that work on these projects will carry over. "We have gained valuable experience from producing Dovetail Games Fishing using Unreal Engine 4, and all of this experience and technical know-how is helping us develop the next generation of Train Simulator using UE4. Even though fishing and trains might seem a world apart, there are a lot of common areas -- including visual things like the skies, water, trees and people," he said.

As for the extensive DLC for Train Sim, it sounds like Dovetail won't screw over existing players. "We are mindful that a lot of people in the community have built up some fantastic collections of locomotives and routes over the last few years and we're absolutely going to continue to support those products, and indeed create new content, for the current generation Train Simulator.

"I can say that we are looking at making the next generation Train Simulator an optional upgrade so you can continue to use the current generation product with all of your current add-ons, whether or not you choose to upgrade to the next generation."

All aboard for Train Simulator 2013

I've taken the same train route back and forth from my house to Glasgow since I was 16. I've spent a fair chunk of my life on a train but despite this, I've never seen the appeal in the Train Simulator franchise. Th...more

Conflicks has a great alternate history setup with anachronistic space colonialism

Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci discovered MetaMatter? Well, not in real life, but in the universe of Conflicks he did. It turns out all it takes is to separate a chicken egg's yolk from its albumen, and to heat up the y...more

So, uh, EA is giving out The Sims 2 Ultimate for free

EA recently announced the end of its technical support for The Sims 2 and in doing so said that players would be given a free The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection upgrade as thanks. That was an unexpected move, but this one's even ...more

The Steam Controller looks different, again

It seems every time we check in with Valve's Steam Controller, it's undergone another significant change. The last design, which added a D-pad of sorts and A/B/X/Y buttons, was more in line with traditional gamepads. Now, if ...more
