New Last Train Home Trailer Recreates Epic True Story

Announced back in June, Last Train Home is an upcoming strategy game set during the chaotic period of the Eastern Front in the later period of World War I and beyond. Based on the almost unbelievable story of the Czechoslovak Legion, Last Train Home has you leading an armoured train full of soldiers wishing to return to their newly won state, but who cannot go the easy way west due to political concerns and blockades. Instead, they are forced to push east across almost 10,000km of the Trans-Siberian railway, fighting all the way, and (spoiler alert) eventually reach home by sea from the port of Vladivostok to Europe and safety.

Players will be in command of both the train and its troops, leading them into combat and organising the force to be able to better fulfil its missions. Regardless of its basis in history, it is a game and the train is upgradable. Better equipment for your troops can be salvaged to help deal with any obstacles you encounter during the campaign. Both the White and Red Russian armies will be attempting to hamper your progress, and you’ll need to use all the resources at your disposal to ensure your safe passage East.

The newly released story trailer gives a better idea of the events surrounding your mission to escape Russia. Check it out below.

Great timing because THQ Nordic has a showcase scheduled on August 11th at 8PM BST which will demo more of the game (as well as other upcoming titles) and can be seen on both their Twitch and their YouTube channels. Personally, with their releases of Jagged Alliance 3 and Spellforce: Conquest of Eo recently, I can’t wait to see more of this title and other games they’ve got planned. For strategy fans at least, THQ seem to be on a bit of a roll. Last Train Home can be wishlisted on Steam here.
