RollerCoaster Tycoon World Announced: New PC Title Coming In 2015, Boasts Multiplayer Parks, Ride Blueprint Sharing And More
The RollerCoaster Tycoon sequel that fans have been waiting for has officially been announced: RollerCoaster Tycoon World is coming in early 2015.
The title promises to bring more rides, the beloved track builder, and even multiplayer cooperative modes to complement the standard singleplayer experience. You can view a teaser for the title below.
"The RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise has captured the heart of gaming enthusiasts globally for close to 15 years, and we're eager to provide the next installment of the phenomenal series to new and life-long fans," said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer, Atari.
"Many of the new features in RollerCoaster Tycoon World were not possible a few years ago, but we have taken advantage of technological improvements to offer a wildly fun gaming experience that stays true to the storied franchise. This is the game fans have been asking for."
Atari previously announced and released a RollerCoaster Tycoon game for mobile devices, but fans were widely disappointed to see the title filled with microtransactions and in-app purchases--not elements that were part of the series' core--rather than a true sequel. The developers said a fully featured entry would be coming on PC, though, and have followed through with this announcement.
Other new features include visiting other players' parks, sharing ride blueprints, and playing with up to four other users to create one massive theme park. Atari will demonstrate the game at PAX later this month in Seattle, and there is no exact release date yet set. The last main PC entry in the series was RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, which released in 2004.
