After making its playable debut at the Games Convention in Leipzig, during which Kuju announced Deutsche Bahn as Rail Simulator's official German railroad partner, EA has now released the first set of screens for the game.

Jonathan Newth, MD for Kuju's Rail Simulator, commented: "We're delighted to be able to release our first set of Rail Simulator screenshots and with Rail Simulator's first major outing at the Leipzig Games Convention!"

Rail Simulator will offer gamers the ability to take control of steam, diesel and electric trains on real-world routes across the UK and Germany, even allowing enthusiasts to create their own ideal journey routes.

Rail Simulator is scheduled for release later this year on the PC and will be published by EA.
