⚙️ Video engine update

  • Dear Players,

    We are excited to announce that the Video Engine update will take place in the next few days!

    What's new?


    Pollux: The new bonus engine for everyone!

    What an exciting update to Rail Nation! We're giving you a new bonus engine — its name: Pollux. It can be obtained in a unique way than any of the bonus engines thus far.

    The Pollux, however, is a cargo engine and is integrated into our video feature. Everyone receives this bonus engine after watching the first bonus video of a game round. Everyone can easily unlock and improve the new bonus engine Pollux constantly. More than 90 upgrades make the Pollux grow from a rail trolley to a true force of the tracks.

    To prevent a few players from watching hundreds of videos a day and gaining an unfair advantage, we have limited the number of videos a player can watch a day to 56. Additionally, we have made sure that you can always watch your own video, even if an association member has already watched it.

    The video feature changes take effect as soon as a game world restarts. Ongoing rounds will not be affected by this feature update.

    Improvements and bug fixes

    This update also includes several improvements and bug fixes that apply immediately to all game worlds, including those currently running. Several smaller issues have been resolved, such as:

    • Researcher is now displayed in the station building laboratory.
    • Boost icon in the train list is now displayed in the same size as the other icons.
    • Reactivating trains from the museum works again.
    • Bonus code contents are displayed correctly again.
    • Trains with schedules containing delivery and pickup are no longer displayed in the train list without a schedule.


    Both the introduction of the Pollux and the new video limit will be live after 11.02.2021 on all DE and RU restarting gameworlds and after 18.02.2021 on all other restarting gameworlds.
