There’s less than two weeks to go until Christmas Day! Treat yo’elf this festive season and enjoy a Train Sim World experience on a completely different scale. The nostalgia-filled 1980s living room setting sees a miniature railway threaded between furniture and a naughty elf on the loose, leaving presents and batteries where they shouldn’t be! The glow of the fire and the flicker of the CRT television create an atmosphere befitting of a quiet Christmas Eve but things must be put in order before the clock ticks down to midnight.
Running round the track is the Richie Rails F7, fitted with simplified controls that engineers and drivers of all ages can have fun with. Whether you’re getting to know your surroundings by exploring every inch of the layout, or carefully plotting a course to switch the right stock out of the right yards, this version of the F7 is perfect for the task at hand. There’s plenty to see around the room and for those wanting a bit more freedom of movement, a driveable jeep can be unlocked – a first for Train Sim World!
With a selection of scenarios to play, collecting up items and putting the elf back on that naughty step, there’s work to be done before you can all relax for Christmas! But once all is cleared, using Scenario Planner, the train set is yours to enjoy with any of the trains and locomotives from Train Sim World 3 and previously-owned Train Sim World Compatible content.
Beyond the living room, a host of festive Community activities are taking place in-game and on social media. This year we have decided to create something new and fun to celebrate The Holiday Express - a way to earn in-game rewards, DLC keys and even a mystery grand prize! You can get involved on our socials each day with daily competitions and puzzles. There’s also some festive Mastery Challenges in-game to get stuck into and a combined Community Challenge for everyone to contribute towards whilst playing their favourite routes, with some festive surprises appearing in Training Center for those who complete them.
Some of you have already been sketching Elves and folding up paper train models, and we're excited to see you tackle the remaining challenges!
If you need any more information on the event, please refer to our Holiday Social Event Megathread
Plus, later this month we have a Grand Prize Giveaway with some amazing railway-themed prizes to be won from 21st December!
