Kalypso Media are having quite the E3, with the announcement of Tropico 6 and now they have released the first gameplay trailer for Railway Empire. This latest tycoon simulator encourages you to build a North American rail empire, starting in the 1830s. Here’s the official description for the game and the new trailer –

In Railway Empire, set in North America in the 1830s, you will create an elaborate and wide-ranging rail network, purchase over 40 different trains  modelled in extraordinary detail, and buy or build railway stations, maintenance buildings, factories and tourist attractions to keep your travel network ahead of the competition. You’ll also need to hire and manage your workforce if you want to ensure an efficient train service, whilst also develop over 300 technologies ranging from mechanical improvements to the trains themselves to workplace infrastructures and advanced amenities as you progress through five eras of technological innovations.However, you can’t just build and research your way to the top – the competition never sleeps, and to keep your business on track you’ll have to survive against up to three rival tycoons. To get to the top you may have to resort to more cutthroat tactics as you attack and sabotage your opponents through raids and industrial espionage.

Railway Empire will launch for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in the first quarter of 2018
