"Trains vs. Zombies 2" OR "We're in New York! How ORIGINAL!"

Now, before you rush to your keyboard to tell me how "horrible I am for buying this because this isn't a game but a simulator and it's destroying the genre and oh god it's like killing a puppy how could you please think of the puppies and kittens and other fuzzy animals" - please. DON'T.

That's what happened the last time RSC rolled out Halloween themed DLC, and it wasn't pretty. So let's avoid that, shall we? If you must, please open another topic or something. Or take a walk. Long walks are nice.

With that out of the way:

Who's got it, and who's played it already?
I'm downloading it as I'm typing this post. I hope it's as fun as last year's Trains vs. Zombies.

Actually, it's four or five (I think five) scenarios in one storyline. So that boils down to a Euro per scenario.

And wasn't last year's on a bundled route like Oxford-Paddington? This time it is based on NEC, so if you don't have it you can get an idea (but I suppose it is defeatured from regular NEC.)

I'm not really interested myself, although I might pick it up sometime, just not now.

I actually don't think last year's was bundled. It required the base game, I do think, and since Oxford-Paddington was a base route...
This year's is stand-alone, so if you don't have NEC or even Train Simulator 2013, it's a great way to try it out as a demo.

Got the first one very cheap, in a sale, I think. As I don't mind things to be a little different I have got the New York one, but time constraints and other chores to be undertaken mean I have yet to try it.....tea break over, back to the grindstone for unclefreddy...

So it is not treated as DLC if you own Train2013? It will be a seperate entry and launched on it's own?

$8.99 is not bad but I am getting a bit tired of Zombies being added in "Everything" now days. Saints Row The Third is a perfect example.

Actually, if you own 2013, it'll just go from within the game.
According to Steam, however, it's fully standalone.

Melfice is correct, if you own TS 2013 it will be just scenarios to you. But if you don't own TS 2013, then it is a stand alone product. Kind of a smart way to get some more customers, if you think about it. I purchased it see if it contained some new "Halloween" addons really. I got the 2011 version as well and I am in the Halloween mood.

Seconded. There's a zombie DLC coming for Sleeping Dogs too, which at least distinguishes itself by having proper jiang-shi "hopping corpse" Chinese zombies.

This is the interesting part - one could buy this and then supposedly other RW3 DLC would be compatible with it. (Why someone would do this, I'm not certain... I also wonder if this game would get updated in the future as RW does.)

I'm not entirely sure if it works that way, drelbs. Has that been tested?

From the game's description:

"Compatible with Train Simulator 2013 downloadable content - visit our Steam store to choose realistic locomotives and routes to download and drive"

Furthermore, it says:

"Note: Trains Vs Zombies 2 includes the Train Simulator 2013 core technology. To play Trains vs Zombies 2 launch Train Simulator 2013 from your library after purchase."

...so I'm guessing that you get a base version of TS2013, which you could buy DLC for in Steam.
