Explore alien dimensions with a self-designed train
In this first-person survival game, you build an interdimensional train to travel through the, you guessed it, void. A world with a different kind of gravity that feels a bit like being underwater. Wonderful but dangerous: This place is full of deadly beasts and rich with treasures and resources. With it, you can create new weapons, equipment and upgrade your train.
Enter the mysterious nothingness, explore the procedurally generated world, and uncover its secrets and puzzles. All this while, step by step you build a magnificent train with whole wagons from a lorry. The bigger your train gets, the higher you climb the skill tree and unlock new gameplay possibilities, like new tools to build better weapons. In its survival craft gameplay, Voidtrain is also somewhat comparable to Raft or Subnautica, but the setting sets it apart from these titles. The following Early Access Trailer gives a good overview of what to expect in the game.
Play Voidtrain in Co-op
Fortunately, you don’t have to enter this almost limitless open-world adventure alone. Grab your favorite gaming companions, and play Voidtrain in Co-op with up to four players. In a team, you will uncover many of these secrets faster and can more effectively eliminate nasty enemies. It also makes crafting a lot easier with the ability to split up the work.
The release date for Steam
Players on Epic Games have been busy jetting through the void in Early Access for quite some time now. Steam players are already getting quite restless, and HypeTrain continues to keep mum about an official date. However, the version on Epic, and everything released recently, gives an excellent and finished impression of the game. So we can probably expect a Steam release soon.
Initially, the team planned a Steam release in October 2022. They have now moved this date to an as-yet-undetermined time in 2023 but are keeping their focus on that process. Whether Voidtrain will appear for Xbox or other consoles is plausible but has not yet been confirmed. However, considering that the controller already works quite well, there shouldn’t be much that stands in the way.
