Planet Coaster is coming to console later this year

Posted June 26, 2020

Frontier Developments recently announced that its popular simulation game, Planet Coaster, will be released on console later this year. Originally released in 2016 to critical acclaim, many considered Planet Coaster to be a spiritual successor to the classic Rollercoaster Tycoon series.

If you haven’t played Planet Coaster before, the premise is simple: build and manage your own theme park from scratch. The game lets you design your own rides, attractions, and scenery, manage your guests’ happiness, and expand your amusement park empire.

Planet Coaster was one of the top-selling PC games of 2016 and has since had considerable commercial success. The game received particular praise for its deep physics-based building systems, making the rides, visitors, and environment feel realistic and fun to play with.

Slated for 2020, the console releases will give PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X players the chance to join in on the fun and build and manage their own theme parks too.

As part of this exciting announcement, Frontier Developments released a video interview with some members of the talented team behind the game. To get a taste of the exciting things in store for Planet Coaster players this holiday season, check out the video below:
