Let's talk about Rail Nation - Origin Journey

  • OrginJourneyLogoCut.png?ssl=1




    Pack your bags and join us on a journey through Germany, Austria and Switzerland, from the North Sea to the Alps.

    We’re delighted to introduce you to our new map, Rail Nation – Origin Journey!


    This new map is fundamentally different from all three of our scenarios, as Rail Nation – Origin Journey will only be available for a limited time only and exclusively as an event scenario! Multiple regional and international servers will start in May and run their course through to the grand finale. Be part of it!




    But what exactly is Rail Nation – Origin Journey?


    Our new map sends you on a journey across the German-speaking part of Europe. The map relates to the origins of Rail Nation in two different ways. Firstly, it’s the home of the development studio where Rail Nation’s story began. And secondly, with respect to the game mechanics, it goes back to the roots that are the Classic scenario, which in all our surveys has always been your absolute favourite. Rail Nation – Origin Journey contains all the familiar features of the Classic scenario. Research engines, expand your railway network and help your city grow into a megacity.


    Of course, not all will be exactly the same, there are plenty of new features as well.




    50 cities, 3 countries, 1 map


    From the Baltic Sea to the Alps, and from Berlin to Geneva. 50 realistic German, Austrian and Swiss cities are at the heart of the new scenario. All cities also have their very own authentic landmark. Hop on board and visit them all!

    Famous cars, exquisite watches and delicious cake – supply 11 new regional goods


    For the first time ever in the history of Rail Nation, local goods have been added to the game. Players can now supply cities with 11 new, traditional and authentic goods – from Swiss cheese and German beer to leather pants from Austria. Industrial dyes, chocolate and, for the first time, water are now all part of the new range of goods.


    Plus, there will naturally be new workers to match these goods.

    Complete the journey


    Every player who actively plays all Rail Nation scenarios will receive new achievements. The journey through Germany, Austria and Switzerland will also be rewarded with career points.


    If you’d like to get all four achievements for playing all maps, please keep in mind that Rail Nation – Origin Journey will be available for a limited time only. Watch this space!

  • FAQ

    Do landmarks work like in Steam over Europe?

    Nope. The landmarks on this map are simply eye-candy only. Rail Nation – Origin Journey is played just like the Classic scenario.


    What are the new goods?

    They are: water, milk, cheese, chocolate, beer, cake, leather trousers, wristwatches, paint, mobile phones and garden gnomes. On top of that, we have given some older goods new icons.


    Does it cost something to play on the new map?

    No, the map will be available for all players and free of charge.


    Will there be pre-registration for or on the Rail Nation – Origin Journey server?

    Nope. The server will only run once and will not restart. For this reason, there will be no pre-registration.


    Is the career engine available on this map?

    Yeah!


    Is it possible to purchase and transfer Gold?

    Yeah! Buying Gold is possible and any Gold left over after the end of the event scenario will then be available on any server of the same domain. Transferring Gold from servers of the same domain to the Rail Nation – Origin Journey server is also possible.


    When and on which domains will Rail Nation – Origin Journey be available?

    We will have German, Russian, Eastern European and international COM game worlds.

    • First RU game world: 14.5.2019
    • First COM game world (all languages supported): 16.5.2019
    • First DE game world: 20.5.2019
    • First Eastern European (CZ, PL, RO, UA): game world: 21.5.2019

    Additional game worlds in those domains will start after the 20th of May if needed.

  • If you buy gold and then transfer it to the OJ what happens to the bonus engine, does Primus transfer as well?

    Primus behaves like any other Bonus engine, they can be used only during the game round where you got the engine and can't be transferred to other worlds.

  • Samisu


    Can we buy gold in this server same as any other server ( and receive the train as present?)


    After the server is finished, can we transfer the remaining gold to another server?

    For example, I plan on entering Origin scenario by a Russian server.

    I will transfer gold from another Russian server which I am a vegetable now.

    When this gold ends, I must buy more ( i am a player who is unable to play wihout buying gold).

    Can I do this at Origin scenario?

  • no French server?

    French players are welcomed to play on COM, and COM server(s) will support the language 100%. We have the Eastern European gameworlds that support some languages and then we have COM that supports English, French, Italian etc.

    COM is like a hub for those not playing on DE, RU or EE and completely translated.

  • Yes, you can purchase Gold packages and you do get the new Primus engine with the first purchase (as long as the 3 month offer period is still active). Primus can of course be also won from lottery.


    After server is finished, you can pick your gold up on another server. Given that Rail Nation - Origin Journey is a temporary event, we wanted to make sure to make gold transfer to other servers as convenient as possible.


    If you should decide to quit OJ while it's running and delete your avatar, you can transfer your gold/plus account like this:

    • RU --> RU
    • DE --> DE
    • COM/EE (Eastern Europe) --> COM


    If you play until the end, your leftovers will be automatically uploaded and can be accessed like this:

    • DE --> DE
    • RU --> RU
    • COM/EE --> Everywhere

    Every player who actively plays all Rail Nation scenarios will receive new achievements. The journey through Germany, Austria and Switzerland will also be rewarded with career points.

    Does this mean you need to play all Rail Nation scenarios simultaneously or that you can do them one at a time, other than the OJ game which is a one off.

  • Does this mean you need to play all Rail Nation scenarios simultaneously or that you can do them one at a time, other than the OJ game which is a one off.

    All scenarios bring career points / achievements, no matter when you play on those or how many you have running. The new scenario will also bring achievements. No need to play simultaneously unless you want to.

  • Hey


    1/2 a year ago +/- U wrote about a hole Asso should be able to move/copy to a new server, it would be perfect here, my guess U would get a lot more people playing if they can stay in there normal asso, what is the plan about that ????


    Would love to try the new senario with my own Asso (I already build up a lot of Asso from start- been there, done that - next)


    Have a nice Friday evening

  • Hi Rype


    Pre-registration works only when you start the next round of the same server, and that is how it was designed. I'm afraid it is not possible to pre-register to Origin Journey scenario.

  • Hey Samisu



    No i am unfortunately total aware of that, but in one of your survey U ask for this possibility in the future !!!!


    and 1/2 year ago to now = future and a perfect time to introduce it !!!!!!

  • All scenarios bring career points / achievements, no matter when you play on those or how many you have running. The new scenario will also bring achievements. No need to play simultaneously unless you want to.

    Don't they all run just once at the same time? So, if you want to do them all, you have to do them simultaneously

  • I'm not familiar with that survey.The feedback will tell (among other things) how high players have rated different possible features and these results can then be used to prioritize where to go next. Surveys do not make promises, but it is good to hear you are interested in a feature where you can move your association from server to server. If a feature like that would come, you will hear about it but not before it has been confirmed - which it isn't. We are sorry if the survey gave a wrong impression and will pay more attention to our wordings in future surveys.


    Don't they all run just once at the same time? So, if you want to do them all, you have to do them simultaneously

    I'm sorry I don't understand your question. Origin Journey will run only once, but there are multiple servers running at the same time you can pick from. First wave of and dates have already been announced above.

  • Is it an express server or the normal lenght of 12 weeks?
