Transport Fever 2 gets cross-platform mod support

This autumn, the upcoming game update will bring many great new features for PC and console players. In addition to the expanded modding support, there are many other improvements to make building easier and even more fun in the future.

The most prominent feature of the Autumn Update is the new, fully integrated mod browser, which is available to all players on Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store, Mac AppStore, PlayStation® 5 and Xbox Series X|S. With the mod browser, it is possible to browse through the extensive range of mods from the community directly in the game, subscribe to your favorites and then use them in the game. In order for non-Steam players to also benefit from the mod browser, the browser not only supports the Steam-exclusive workshop, but also the mod.io platform from the creators of ModDB. This collaboration allows us to fulfill the most common wish of console players.

To make modding easier, the modding tools will also receive useful additions with the upcoming Autumn Update. We are already supporting dedicated modders in transferring their content to the new platform and, if possible, preparing it for the console version. Interested modders can contact us if they want to make their mods available to all players.

In addition to mod support, improved road traffic is a key feature. Thanks to the revised simulation, cars will be better distributed on multi-lane roads and bypasses, instead of having to queue through the middle of the city. To make it easier to build these roads, the construction tools will be improved. For example, it will be possible to select existing bridges and tunnels and change their type after they were built, stations and depots will automatically align themselves with the road and when placing roads and tracks, help lines will support you in building exact angles.

After five years of active development with numerous free updates, the Autumn Update will be the last major update for Transport Fever 2. After that there is something new and great in the pipeline.

Happy Holidays from the Transport Fever 2 Family

As this year draws to a close, we are settling down a little and looking back on an eventful year with many highlights:

We started this year by releasing the Console Edition and a free update for everyone. At the same time, the Deluxe Upgrade, the first expansion for Transport Fever 2, was released. From what we have read and heard, you seem to have just as much fun playing with the additional content as we had creating it.

In the summer, we had a second highlight, which was entirely thanks to you: Transport Fever 2 now has more than one million players across the globe! This is a significant achievement for us, and we are deeply grateful for your continued support and enthusiasm. Making games is great, but making games for a community like ours makes it even more fulfilling. Besides this great news, Urban Games also celebrated its 10th anniversary this year. Neither of both would have been possible without you!

As already announced in our last post, this was not the last year of Transport Fever 2. We will release one more game update next year. More information about this will follow during the next few months.

The entire team at Urban Games wishes you beautiful and healthy holidays and a happy new year!

Looking into the future of Transport Fever 2

As we approach the 4th anniversary of Transport Fever 2, we would like to give an outlook into what lies ahead.

We are currently exploring the possibility of giving players on PS5, Xbox Series and on the Mac App Store, EGS, and GOG access to mod content. We plan to combine this with various other improvements in a major game update for PC and console platforms scheduled for the second half of 2024.

Transparency is important to us: the introduction of cross-platform content is a complex undertaking that can present unforeseen challenges. We are optimistic and committed to delivering the best possible experience for you. Today, we can already assure you that the well-used Steam Workshop for Transport Fever 2 will be unaffected by these developments.

In the meantime, you can expect more minor maintenance fixes to enhance your current gaming experience, with the first maintenance update already going to beta in December. Beyond routine maintenance, the mentioned game update in the second half of 2024 marks what we anticipate to be the concluding major update for Transport Fever 2. With this update, we want to express our sincere gratitude to the community for your ongoing interest and dedication.

Following this final milestone for Transport Fever 2, we have something new and great in the pipeline. It is still far too early, but we are already looking forward to telling you more about it.

Best wishes from the entire Urban Games team.
