Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 isn’t the only game to include underground trains this year.
Introducing London Underground Simulator, the latest in Excalibur’s line of quality PC simulation titles that cater to the specialist market.
But forget the seemingly never-ending delays, crowds of angry commuters and expensive tickets in the real world – this game lets players wander platforms and drive trains in peace.
Users can travel across the Circle Line complete with its 25 stations and more than 54km of track, picking up passengers and completing various missions along the way. It’s the third instalment in the World of Subways series of games following the New York and Berlin versions.
Players can view the cockpit area in full 3D with a rotatable camera, walk wherever they like on the train and the platforms, watch other carriages pass and enjoy the game’s realism from accurate track bends to reflecting headlights. It has the high level of detail you’d expect from Excalibur. Even the station announcements have been recorded by the original speaker.
With a new 3D engine, real platforms including High Street Kensington and realistic train simulation gameplay, London Underground Simulator will go down a treat with anoraks, train lovers and PC simulation fans.
“We are really thrilled to be publishing this product,” says Excalibur’s head of PR and marketing Charlotte Gunn.
“We feel it will have a long-term position within the market and appeal to a wide variety of consumers as it is a fantastic, high quality product.”
