The holidays are almost here – the countdown is well underway, both IRL and in Tracks – The Train Set Game! Our free Advent Calendar Update is out now, with new items and decorations to unlock every day up to 24 December.

Don’t worry if you’re yet to play the update: all previous days are still available to be opened/unlocked. Today I want to give you a quick look at just a handful of the many new decorations included in the update and give you a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

First though, a quick recap on Tracks – The Train Set Game for those of you who are yet to jump aboard! Tracks is a calm, cosy toy train set builder which gives you the tools to play without limits. Open the toybox to discover a huge array of decorations, passengers, animals and buildings, build your world and then jump into the driver’s cabin to see it all to scale. If you’re yet to play, you’re in luck! We’re currently offering a 67% discount on Xbox as part of the Family Time Sale.

Santa’s Sleigh

We couldn’t launch an Advent Calendar Update without including Santa’s sleigh! Why not place it under a Christmas tree or on a shelf? Tracks allows you to place decorations in the air too, so you could even place the sleigh in the night sky!

Snowman

One of the new passengers you’ll unlock is the snowman! Turn on snow to add a light, fluffy layer of white to your toy worlds, and the new snowman passenger type will look right at home. Why not accompany them with reindeer or even Santa himself?

Spiral Bush

With this update we also wanted to introduce more decorations which can be used year-round, rather than just for the holidays. One of these new additions is the spiral bush – this can add variety to your gardens and parks – or why not spruce up your towns by putting them outside shops?

Steamroller

Even in the world of Tracks there’s plenty of roadwork and construction sites. We’ve added the Steamroller, which fits right in with warning signs, rocks and workpeople!

Panda

While pandas may not be the most traditionally festive animal, they’re adorable all the same. Why not set up a zoo, where the pandas can live alongside other furry friends? Or how about out in the wild? The choice is yours.
