Kalypso Media and Gaming Minds Studios have announced that rail tycoon simulator Railway Empire  is available today on PS4 in Europe, with the North American release to follow on 30th January.

In Railway Empire, players will conquer 19th century North America as they work to establish a vast rail network stretching from coast to coast. On the way to entrepreneurial superstardom, players must deal with cutthroat competitors, hire and fire their staff, research over 300 technologies and put over 40 historically authentic locomotives to work as they place miles of tracks across a massive, stunningly-detailed game world. A powerful graphics engine (available in 4k on PlayStation 4 Pro) lets you seamlessly transition from a birds-eye view to a first-person perspective as you ride along with your favourite trains across your carefully laid rail network.
