TS2016 is just around the corner and there have been many questions raised about what happens on launch day. Many of these questions are relating to whether TS2016 will be a free upgrade or not.

TS2016 is being delivered in much the same way as it has been every other year. The only difference this year is instead of saving up all the patches and extra features to give you them in one go at the annual release – features such as TrackIR, Enhanced External Controller Functionality and the numerous fixes and updates – we’ve been rolling them out to you the minute they were ready throughout the year. So this means that you have already been upgraded to the latest technical standard for Train Simulator throughout the year. The launch of the final product contains the biggest package of exclusive content we’ve ever delivered. This year you’ll be getting everything that’s listed under “What’s Included” below.

To illustrate the process, in much the same way we did last year, we’ve prepared this simple image to show you what happens on launch day
