Train Simulator 2015 launches today on PC and to celebrate Dovetail Games has released a launch trailer that isn’t at all what one would expect. Featuring (I believe) the voice of Sean Bean, or Ned Stark from Game of Thrones, talking about the skill needed to deal with the difficulties of being a railroad engineer. Considering the cult following that has developed around the Train Simulator series, I doubt this trailer will change too many minds, but it certainly is an entertaining watch for anyone with a passing interest in listening to Ned Stark discuss trains.
If the Train Simulator 2015 launch trailer does pique your interest then definitely check out our preview from a few days ago. It goes over the many changes made with the move from Train Simulator 2014 to 2015. These include the TS Academy, additional mod tools, and new routes for you to ride the rails on. These are on top of a tweaked graphics engine which features 3D cloud and weather systems.
