This is not a drill: the new RollerCoaster Tycoon is coming!
I repeat, this is not a drill. RollerCoaster Tycoon World is coming. And it’s coming soon!
Unlike the disaster that is/was RollerCoaster Tycoon 4, a free-to-play iOS exclusive, RollerCoaster Tycoon World is for PC and it’s a regular old paid game. I will now give you a moment to let out that breath you’ve been holding since I mentioned a new RCT.
Better? Good, you were starting to turn blue.
Nvizzio Creations and Atari’s RollerCoaster Tycoon World was originally scheduled to launch mid-2015, but was delayed after a lot of criticism regarding its visuals. The graphics are now far more realistic, and a solid release date has been set: December 10, 2015. That’s just two months before we can all see who crashes a coaster with the most style… or who builds the best parks, if that’s more your cup of tea.
The game is currently available for preorder, with each purchase giving the owner access to betas and some additional skins. There are two versions, a regular and a deluxe. The deluxe comes with extra maps and terrain options, a digital art book, and everyone’s favourite panda mascot.
