Get the Planet Coaster Game Next Month

The new Planet Coaster game, a theme-park and roller-coaster simulation for PC can be yours as soon as this March.

The game developer, Frontier, announced Planet Coaster last June, and is now offering an early-bird edition of the game for $74.99 (as of this posting):

Your Early Bird Edition will grant you first access to Planet Coaster months before its official public release, and full access to the complete game upon release. The Early Bird Edition of Planet Coaster will be available to play March 2016.


Frontier touts Planet Coaster as a game-changer for the coaster-simulation game genre:

We’re giving you the best design tools, crafting the deepest management simulation and bringing your parks to life with crowds you’ll love to thrill.

We’re giving you total freedom to make your park unique and connecting you to a global village where the world can share your creativity.

The official release of the game is expected later this year — my guess is closer to the holiday season.

From what we’ve seen of the game so far, it seems that Frontier is placing an emphasis on the park guests (“peeps” in Roller Coaster Tycoon language) as well as the coasters and park infrastructure.

Meanwhile, Roller Coaster Tycoon World is still in production and is available for pre-order. It’s due to be released this year as well. Interestingly, Frontier developed the Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 game trilogy.
