Follow US


Strategy fans take note: This week on Steam, you can look forward to a thrilling building game and real-time strategy set in the First World War

It’s Monday again and a new working week needs to be survived somehow – but luckily there are new games on Steam this week to sweeten our hard-earned evening off.

In our big overview we show you again the most important Steam releases And this time there are two really exciting strategy hopefuls for you!

Last Train Home

(Genre: Real-time strategy – Developer: Ashborne Games – Release: November 28 (Steam)

In Last Train Home you take control of an armored train full of Czechoslovakian soldiers desperately trying to return home after the end of the First World War.

You are responsible for managing the train, including the route through Russia. You have to manage resources such as food, wood and coal, can upgrade your train and decide which soldier takes on which role in the train – FTL sends its regards!

However, there are always battles that take place in pausable real time. Of course, you must try to ensure that all your characters survive, otherwise they will be lost forever thanks to permadeath.

SteamWorld Build

(Genre: Building Strategy – Developer: The Station – Release: December 1 (Steam)

After Cities Skylines 2 has actually become a good game, but continues to struggle with technical flaws, another city-building simulation now wants to take the building crown with Steamworld Build 

Here you build a western town in a steampunk world, populated by steam-powered robots. Resource management and the welfare of the steambots are paramount as you dig for valuable resources in your mine, expand your settlement and research new technologies

More releases of the week

  • (Wizordum (Early Access): A fantasy retro shooter that wants to remind you of Heretic and witches. And of course you all remember Hexen – after all, you all bought the first GlobalESportNews issue because of the beautiful Hexen 2 cover, and not because of the full Theme Park version, right?

Thursday, November 30th

  • (TEVI): An indie Metroidvania with pixel visuals and anime characters.
  • (Hawked): The Free2Play title offers a mixture of battle royale and extraction shooter à la Escape from Tarkov. The beta on Steam attracted thousands of players in September.
