It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a real RollerCoaster Tycoon game. The mobile RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 was hardly the expansive park-builder that long-time fans of the series had been clamoring for, so a major PC installment is a welcome addition. In a blog post, developers have announced that RollerCoaster Tycoon World will debut on PC and Linux on December 10, 2015. It will be available for Mac at a date yet to be announced.
The game is available for pre-order now, and those who do will gain access to two beta weekends, one in late October, and another in late November. Both Standard and Deluxe editions of the game are available, with the Deluxe edition sporting two extra maps, terrain texture additions, a digital art book, a gold park entrance, and a Panda mascot.
In an interview with PC Gamer, it was revealed that multiplayer mode will not be available at launch, but will be patched in later. Players can still visit each other’s parks and share screenshots initially. They also stated that since the complaints about low framerate and sad visuals, the development team switched to Unity 5. Hopefully this makes a difference in the final product.
