Planet Coaster (PLC) Discussion Thread

Hi everyone,

more exciting times ahead! We have announced a new game - Coaster Park Tycoon - in an operations update press release. Here are the relevant details:

Coaster Park Tycoon
Frontier became the acknowledged leading developer of Tycoon games for its work on the RollerCoaster Tycoon® franchise, particularly its development of 2004’s 10M unit-selling PC game RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 which is still considered the benchmark of the Tycoon genre, more than ten years after its release in 2004.

Coaster Park Tycoon, scheduled for 2016 release on PC, is intended to raise that benchmark for ‘Tycoon’ gameplay even further by combining accessible creative features with a sophisticated simulation.

Jonny Watts, Chief Creative Officer of Frontier Developments, said:

“Coaster Park games appeal to a great many people, as proven by RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. It is a field for which Frontier has unparalleled expertise and immense passion, and one to which we have long wanted to make a ‘no-holds-barred’ return. We want Coaster Park Tycoon to be another major step forward for the simulation genre, and sit alongside Elite: Dangerous as a second major self-published franchise.”


We'll reveal more details as we progress, but in the meantime if you want to register for updates through the mailing list you can send a mail to: info@coasterparktycoon.co.uk

Wow, wasn't expecting this one. I wonder, how it will vary from RCTWorld?

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

This sounds very promising. Cautiously optimistic, but very excited.

If this is true, I'd much rather buy this than RCT World!

It does seem like roller coaster games are starting to make a comeback, which is always great news. However, none of the recent ones besides TPS have looked overly promising. This one might be another exception to that rule!

Coaster Park Tycoon, from the same creators of RCT3. That sounds pretty darn cool. RCT3 is already a great game, so I wonder how Coaster Park Tycoon will play out.

Fantastic news! I am loving all these coaster games becoming big again.

So now we have:
Rollercoaster Tycoon World
Coaster Park Tycoon
Parkitect
Theme Park Studio
No Limits 2

I hope that they are all successful!

It'll be interesting to see if this is more in line with RCT3 like RCT4 is looking like it will be or if Frontier will take what they learned from the game (and Thrillville) to make something more in line with Theme Park Studio.

I wish they would make a new thrillvill without the weird 3 worlds parks, tiny building areas, and power limits. They were fun to play on a console instead of pc which would grow tiresome on the eyes.
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks
