The Community Edition is a specially made early access version of Trainz: A New Era that lets you, the community, have an early in-depth look at what Trainz: A New Era will be. Trainz: A New Era is available in Standard, Deluxe, or Collector’s Editions on both the PC and Mac Platforms.

But if you haven’t already, you can head over to the Trainz: A New Era product page and see these new screenshots.

While still in beta, these screenshots provide an early look at the progress being made in regards to new technical features such as shadows, as well as how work is progressing on integrating Trainz with E2, the new engine powering the next generation of Trainz games.

There’s still plenty of progress to be made as we power towards the release of Trainz: A New Era.

It’s been 10 months since our Kickstarter campaign closed, and we’ve come a long way since then. With the support of 1,791 backers on Kickstarter and a successful crowd-funding campaign behind us we’re ready to make Trainz: A New Era our best release yet.

we felt it was important to get a build to our core fans so they can see first hand the progress that’s being made with Trainz: A New Era but to also give you a chance to be involved with the development process. You can participate in the testing and help us identify the remaining issues that need to be fixed.

Also, if you have been involved in earlier testing, make sure you come back and check out the progress we’ve made, and if you haven’t visited us yet, come pay us a visit on the beta test site and enjoy the ride with us towards the finish line.
