With the implementation of passenger transports Travian Games makes the biggest wish of millions of players come true.
Munich, 19th June 2015 – Two years after the start of the Open Beta, the successful railway game is extended by a crucial feature: besides cargo, passengers can now also be transported. 13 brand new passenger trains, replicated in detail, from six eras now breathe new life into the game.
“Since our game launched with the Open Beta at the start of 2013, our loyal fans have been wishing for the integration of passenger transports. We wanted to implement this big feature as authentically as possible and are very happy to see it in live operation now. The passenger transport feature is the biggest Rail Nation update in a year and marks the beginning of a whole new era in the history of Rail Nation”, says Petr Vlcek, Rail Nation’s game director.
Once a city has grown to level 5 passengers can be transported between cities. Passengers are crucial for future city growth and hence allow for even more exciting possibilities and lucrative strategies.
To organise the new passenger trains the museum, another wish from our player community, was also integrated. Engines that are not currently being used can be parked here.
A video about the new passenger transport feature can be found on the official Rail Nation YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/HhM6Ov82rkM
