Successful launch of the Console Edition and record number of players on PC

We would like to say a big thank you to our community! The launch of the Console Edition of Transport Fever 2 was successful and we are pleased about the big interest in the game. We worked hard to optimize the interface specifically for PlayStation and Xbox and are thrilled that the game has been well received on these platforms.

The Deluxe Edition has also been successfully released on the PC, and countless “early supporters” were on board right away. Last weekend, a record was even broken! With almost 10,000 players active at the same time, there were more players playing at the same time than at any time since the first months after the release of the PC version over three years ago.

We would also like to emphasize that we are still striving to improve the stability and usability of Transport Fever 2. We know that there is still room for improvement and we are working tirelessly to make the game experience as smooth as possible. That’s why we look forward to bringing you more fixes and improvements for the console and PC versions of Transport Fever 2 in the coming weeks. Thank you for your support!

Gameplay video shows Console Edition in action

We are thrilled to release a new gameplay video for the soon-to-be-available Transport Fever 2: Console Edition.

Together with Nihat Isik, developer at Urban Games, a transport empire is built on a tropical island and the most important game mechanics are explained. In the video, supply chains emerge to deliver cargo to the cities and a local transport network enables residents to travel across the island.

For the first time, the new user interface optimized for controllers is used, which makes it possible to play Transport Fever 2 while sitting on the couch and relaxing on a large screen. Like all other improvements, the new interface and controller support will be available to PC players with the upcoming game update too.

Transport Fever 2: Console Edition will release on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on 9 March 2023 and can be pre-ordered now.

Thank you very much for the interest in the game and best regards from the entire Urban Games team.

The highlights of the upcoming Console Edition and game update at a glance

A multitude of enhancements awaits you on March 9th in the upcoming Transport Fever 2: Console Edition and the game update for PC. These have already been presented on our social media channels in recent weeks. For all those who would like to see the improvements at a glance, there is a summary in this news. 

Selecting the appropriate vehicles for building your transport empire is a crucial aspect of Transport Fever 2. It is the realistic representation of the vehicles in the game world that really makes it possible to immerse oneself in this beautiful game world. That is why an impressive total of 85 vehicles have been completely redesigned as part of the upcoming free game update and Console Edition. 

To improve the overall appearance, even more attention was paid to exact proportions when reworking the vehicles. For some of the vehicles, other originals and new paint schemes were used. The new vehicle models feature enhanced textures that fit much better into the look of the game. We are pleased to fulfill a wish of many players with better rendering of glass and eliminate the unwanted transparency rendering artifacts known as x-ray vision. 

To provide the best possible gaming experience, not only vehicles have been improved. A good balance between the different hardware components is key to make it work. 

The GPU-based terrain tesselation reduces the load on CPU and memory consumption. Less memory is also needed due to texture streaming, which allows clearing textures of models that are not in view anymore and constantly loading textures at the highest affordable resolution. Furthermore, the size of save games has been significantly reduced. Together with the improved map generation, this leads to noticeably shorter loading times.

To grow the Transport Fever 2 family even further, the range of officially included localizations is extended to 13 languages as part of the Console Edition and game update: Italian, Brazilian Portuguese and Korean will be included in Transport Fever 2. The localizations cover the whole user interface and all the written story texts of the campaign missions. 

There is more good news for Steam Deck users: The full controller support will not only be available for Xbox, PlayStation and PC on March 9th, but for Steam Deck as well! 

Many more pictures of the new vehicle models and the differences to the old models are available on our social media channels:

We look forward to sharing more details with you about the upcoming Transport Fever 2: Console Edition and the game update for PC on 9 March in the coming week.
