Ticket to Ride steams onto PCs worldwide today!

Today Ticket to Ride makes its debut on Steam, the world’s most popular PC gaming platform.

The Steam powered version of Ticket to Ride combines the updated graphics and UI design that debuted in the award-winning iPad version with the power features that have made the Online version so popular among PC users. It includes solo and online game play on the classic Ticket to Ride USA map, as well as in-game purchases for all of the digital maps and game modes released for the iPad and Mac App store to date, including USA 1910, Europe, and Switzerland.

Integration with the Steam platform is seamless with an installer-less setup and a zero-click signup at first launch. Ticket to Ride players on Steam will find plenty of online competition as they’ll join the same network that hosts tens of thousands of games from Mac, iPad and other Ticket to Ride Online players.

To celebrate this Steam powered Ticket to Ride, for a limited time only during the first week, those who purchase Ticket to Ride on Steam can download the Europe map (normally $4.99/€3.99) for free!

Ticket to Ride is available on the Steam network today for $9.99/€ 7.99. To download and/or join Steam visit the Ticket to Ride Steam page.

    Spreading Ticket To Ride across all available platform is all good, but what we as players really want is more maps for Online gaming, please release Germany (Märklin), Nordic Countries, India, Asia (Team & Legendary) and Europa 1912 soon.

    What is the advantage of ‘buying’ a copy of the game and maps on another site when we can play here?

    I agree we are all waiting for more Ticket to Ride maps online for download as well as some of the newer games Like Orient Express Mystery.

    • Jesse says:

      There’s probably no advantage to you buying a copy on another site…but a huge advantage to DoW that there game is now on one of the largest computer game ‘stores’ in the world! Now lots of people who have never heard of the game can join in the fun.

    I purchased the Ticket To Ride application from here, but now that it is on steam will I also be able to get a Steam key for it?

    • slylynn says:

      I also just bought the PC game from the DOW website using my Steam login. There ought to be a way for people to did this to get a Steam key.

    • Bethf says:

      I’m waiting for an answer to this as well. I’ve already bought this game twice – once for the PC and once for the iPad, PLUS all the downloadable maps. I think that should be sufficient!

      • Andrew says:

        I totally agree. I have done the exact same so I’m hoping I don’t need to buy it for a third time.

      Sorry, but there is not an “upgrade” to Ticket to Ride on Steam for users of the older version. We certainly understand why you would want a free or discounted upgrade (who wouldn’t?). However, we work with a variety of different distribution partners for our digital games – and while some are flexible in how they would allow promotional cross-platform offers, others are less so. As a result, rather than have a pricing or upgrade policy that varies from platform to platform we have tried to create a consistent but reasonably priced approach – one that is the fairest way for us to treat all of our customers.

      We know there are some who will disagree with our pricing policy. Obviously, if we do not offer enough value, some will opt not to purchase our games or to continue supporting them. We nonetheless strive to do our best.

    Thanks for releasing this on Steam! Finally! It’s been such a drought of boardgame ports on PC so lets see some more please!

    Just the PC version on Steam?

    Why?

    I want to purchase the MAC version on Steam; that’s where we all consolidate all our PC/Mac games! Will the Mac version come to Steam?

    • MarkoPolo says:

      At this time we don’t have plans for the Mac version to be available on Steam.

    So you’re willing to support PCs with their massive variations of screen sizes, processors, memory, etc. but you still aren’t willing to release an Android version? A recent report by Opensignalmaps (http://opensignalmaps.com/reports/fragmentation.php) demonstrated that although the market is certainly fragmented, there are very large numbers of devices with similar hardware. As stated in the report “Testing on the most popular Samsung & HTC devices will get you a long way.”

    You don’t have to try and support every Android device, in the same way that you don’t have to support every PC. But it is just really short-sighted to turn your nose up at the large numbers of Android users who are just begging to be allowed to give you money!

    What is the window’s resolution? Will a 1024×600 resolution be able to work with the game?

  8. Bubba says:

    Steam platform sucks…. Companies that use it do not understand how it negatively affects their business model. To bad for them. They continue to lose customers instead of gain.

    • e.greenwood says:

      Really? Steam has been wildly successful and captures a huge market. Moreover, from a consumer perspective Steam is pretty unintrusive–it’s up to developers to decide how much Steamworks integration they’d like, anywhere from tightly integrated “Xbx Live” like features and always-online DRM to simply using the Steam client to download DRM-free stand-alone software to the customer’s computer. If you were going to choose only one digital distribution scheme for the PC, Steam is a no-brainer. No one else has close to the same market or offers as many services.

  9. Angie says:

    After having already purchased what I was told would be a “permanent” account to play TTR, I will not be spending more money to play it under a different platform (Steam). Good luck with your future endeavors.

    • Jesse says:

      Nobody said you have to buy it again, and the version you have is permanent! You can continue to enjoy the great game you’ve been playing for years without any trouble…but now people who have never heard of Ticket to Ride can find it in a platform they are familiar with. No harm, no foul.

    Since I haven’t found out the correct means of requesting new features for the iPad app, I’ll just dump my requests here:

    * It would be awesome if the Nordic, Asian, German, etc. maps could be ported to the iPad.
    * It would be even more awesome if you could play against specific people you know in the ‘Online’ mode, for example by inviting particular people via Game Center username. This would be a lot less annoying than starting an online game and then waiting ages for other people to appear.
    * Or, if it is not possible to invite specific people to the same table, then at least allow us to start ‘Online’ games when all the seats haven’t been filled yet, and to have the empty seats filled by bots.
