A new dimension awaits: Platform X!

Dear players,

A new dimension awaits! Platform X is a portal to alternative worlds, where new rules apply, old habits are called into question and innovative strategies must be devised.
Brand-new features and alternative balancing offer a completely new Rail Nation experience which requires players to develop new styles of play. Small changes with a huge impact!

Perfect for those of you who fancy something new or different, as well as for curious, adventurous and innovative strategists!


We call the first dimension that the Platform X portal will take you to:

Working Class Heroes

In this first episode of Platform X, hard work is rewarded for industries and everyone else. Supporting industries and tirelessly working together to develop cities pay off!

What does this mean specifically? Here’s an overview of the features:

Prestige for deliveries to industries

  • All players who have supplied required goods to an industry will receive prestige as soon as the industry levels up.

City prestige for level-ups

  • City prestige is no longer awarded daily, but only when the city reaches a new level.
  • The prestige is distributed for all goods, no matter if the good is replaced or not.

New method of calculating active players

  • The competition between cities gets more intense thanks to the improved method of calculating active players.
  • Only players who actually supply a city will count as active players and influence city consumption.

Modified endgame

  • For all megacities, the quantity of goods to be supplied in the endgame is now based on the megacity with the highest city level!

What’s more, there’s another new achievement that awards valuable career points, allowing players to continue to upgrade their career engine. Secure the special Platform X achievement by achieving at least 20,000 prestige in this episode!

Unlike other event scenarios, the first episode of Platform X will run not just for one round, but two. The first round starts at the end of October and the second round shortly after the end of the first in December. This way, you can optimise your strategies based on the experience you gather in the first round or take part in just one of the two rounds if the dates don’t quite suit you.
Here’s an overview of the new game worlds:


HERE you can ask questions about the best strategies for the first episode of Platform X, prove in the community event that you have what it takes for this adventure and earn bonus Gold for Platform X – Working Class Heroes!

We’re really excited and hope you feel the same!
Your Rail Nation Team

  1. Надеюсь что всетаки сервер станет интересным для активных игроков. Покаже все делалось для уничтожения игры, начиная с у резания пассовозов(года 3назад) когда игру покинули более 500активных игроков.

  2. Hi Joel. Platform X episode I will be played on the Classic map with passengers and everything else the Classic scenario holds. The changes are listed in this blog post, and if you have questions about any of these changes, welcome to the forum where we gather and answer all PX related questions.

  3. What territory will Platform X play on? Is it a traditional map or a European map? I assume it is not USA. Will it have pax, will it have warehouses? Will it have extra features and monuments like the European game? Mayors and presidents or personal play within an association? Lots of unanswered questions!

  4. Hola Rafael,

    si, jugar si podrás, pero no habrá un servidor exclusivo para el dominio ES o en castellano.

    Podrás participar en alguno internacional.

    Pero si hay premios fuera de lo que son oros del juego, residentes en España no pueden acceder a ellos debido a las leyes del país.

    El equipo de Rail Nation.

  5. Stadt-Prestige wird nicht mehr täglich vergeben, sondern nur noch. wenn die Stadt eine neue Stufe erreicht.
    Dafür wird das Prestige für alle Waren ausgeschüttet, egal ob die Ware ersetzt wird oder nicht.

    klingt doch ein wenig das für grauware was gibt, wir weden sehen

    andersrum wenn täglich keine pp gibt, sollte ja solange wareneingang gezählt werden bis stufen aufstieg, wie beim WHZ auf SoE

    gut finde ich auch das ZL belohnt wird ..

  6. Hi, will be interesting to think about new strategies with the changes. the only part i dont understand a lot is the EG changes. You can explain a little bit more the last part because if the lvl of the cities will be the only feature to calculate the tons to haul in the EG will make that all the people goes to the same city, avoiding competency and make bored the EG.

    In my experience the more enjoined round are the one that are competency between some cities. The rounds that all the people goes to a same city are really bored.

  7. bonjour, c’est vraiment dommage qu’il n’y ai pas de serveurs français .
    les nouveauté ont vraiment l’air intéressantes
    y aura t’il un monument ?
    combien de temps durera une partie ?
    y aura t’il des itinéraires spéciaux ou pourra t’on relier les autres régions librement ?

  8. Great!! I love what I’ve read so far. These are prerequisites of the game, so to be rewarded is good. Working Heroes is the appropriate Title, those who ‘work’ as required, will be justified.
    Indeed great features and wonderful updates for this Platform X.

  9. Bonjour Bernard,

    Merci pour votre avis, je suis ravi de vous lire !
    Malheureusement, il n’y a pas de serveur français de prévu.
    Pour jouer en français, il faudra donc vous contenter des serveurs FR1, FR3, FR101, FR201 ou FR202.

    Bon jeu et à bientôt 🙂

  10. Bonjour,
    Platform X ,la présentation que vous faite donne envie de jouer à cette variante
    Mais allez vous faire une édition pour les français ou il faut jouer uniquement avec les nations présentées, le barrage de la langue me pose problème et je veux jouer en Français
    Merci de votre réponse
