At Gamescom, we had the pleasure to meet one of the swiss developers who has taken over the license to create a new transport simulator game. He introduced us with a quick list over new features arriving in the sequel and showcased very fast how the game works. It was a bit difficult to get every single detail, as there is a lot of new stuff.
One of the main differences from the first entry of this series is that you can now control even more vehicles, not just trains. You also have to be able to balance economics, so that you can create trading routes between cities, so each city can get the resources they need. You can plan routes with trains, airplanes, trucks and so on..
