Those that purchase a physical copy of the game will be able to download the optimised next-gen version at no extra cost when it becomes available by inserting the disc into their next-gen console. Next-gen upgrades are not available for physical versions of the game if players have upgraded to PS5 Digital Edition or Xbox Series S.
Players that pre-order Planet Coaster: Console Edition or Planet Coaster: Deluxe Edition at participating retailers will also receive Oswald’s Magnificent Machine. This remarkable, one-of-a-kind ride designed by Planet Coaster impresario Oswald B. Thompson, was his first coaster creation and embodies all the fun and excitement Oswald strives to achieve in his parks.
Built from the ground up, Planet Coaster: Console Edition features redesigned interfaces, a brand new radial menu and completely new control system. Anyone can create the coaster park of their dreams by taking advantage of accessible and powerful tools, including detailed piece-by-piece construction and simple-to-use blueprints. And with the Frontier Workshop, players can find an endless source of incredible content at their fingertips to help personalise every aspect of their park, or upload their own creations for people around the world to enjoy. This global community of content creators offers unlimited inspiration for those looking to take their parks to the next level or share their own latest creations to inspire others.
Not only will they have free reign to decide what goes in the park, but precisely how it runs too, making meaningful choices in its day-to-day operations. From hiring staff to setting drinks prices, expanding borders to researching and purchasing attractions, players of all skill levels will get to preside over the coaster park of a lifetime.
Whether diving in for a casual session of the game’s open-ended sandbox mode where money is most definitely not an issue, putting park building and money-making skills to the test in challenge mode, or immersing themselves in the development of a thriving coaster park in the richly rewarding career mode, Planet Coaster: Console Edition is sure to provide endless entertainment however players choose to play.
The game will be available at a suggested retail price of £39.99 for the standard version, and £49.99 for the Deluxe Edition. Check out our Planet Coaster: Console Edition preview to see what we thought of the game or visit the Planet Coaster website for more information.
