The Train is Real: A Look Behind the Scenes of Last Train Home’s Reveal Trailer
Brno, Czech Republic / Vienna, Austria, June 15th, 2023: THQ Nordic and developer Ashborne Games have revealed a new video for Last Train Home, the recently announced survival RTS in which players must lead a group of Czechoslovakian soldiers home in the aftermath of World War I.
The new video provides a closer look at the creation of the game's live-action reveal trailer, which includes real actors (such as award-winning Czech actor Karel Dobrý [Mission: Impossible, A Knight's Tale, Carnival Row, and many more] portraying Captain Langer) as well as game developers acting as soldiers and freezing in action. The trailer also showcases accurate replicas of trains, weapons, clothing, and relics from the World War I era.
Last Train Home thrusts players into the grim aftermath of the First World War. As a commander of the Czechoslovak Legion, you'll find yourself trapped in the chaos of civil war in the heart of Russia. Aboard an armored train, you must venture into the unforgiving landscape of Siberia and safely bring your men back home.
In order to accurately represent the time period, the team partnered with the official Czechoslovak Legionary Community which has ancestors of actual legionnaires among their ranks and operates the so-called “Legiovlak,” a faithful replica of a legionary train from the period 1918-1920 complete with a locomotive, infantry car, workshop, kitchen, ambulance, artillery car and more. The team was able to use the Legiovlak when recording to accurately depict the time when Czechoslovak war operations were taking place on the Trans-Siberian Railway in Russia.
Last Train Home is developed by Ashborne Games in Brno/Czech Republic and coming to PC. You can add the game to your wishlist here: thqn.net/lth-steam
