Originally released in December 2019, Transport Fever 2 is still gaining steam and has been enjoyed by nearly 1 Million people from all over the world, making it the fastest growing entry in the series yet. Transport Fever 2 provides more than 170 years of real-world technology and history to design and master a transportation empire with a vastly improved feature set, user interface and expansive modding capabilities. Players make their fortune creating elaborate new worlds of transport routes and infrastructure over land, sea and air, choosing from over 200 realistically modelled vehicles from Europe, America and Asia, including trains, buses, streetcars, trucks, aircraft and ships, plus modular stations, airports and harbours.
The greatest logistical challenges from 1850 to today are experienced across three unique story campaigns featuring voiceovers and cutscenes. Players let their creativity run rampant through giant sandbox maps in free play mode. Empires boom in beautiful detail with intuitive construction tools and dynamic economy, transportation and city simulation systems. Players can create and share their own worlds, missions, landscapes, vehicles and more with the in-game map editor and extensive modding tools and support via Steam Workshop. A diverse empire can be built by utilising the game’s new ecosystem options which allows users to choose from distinct natural environments, each rendered in exquisite graphical detail.
