This is a weird one, but it seems that simulation fans looking for a new theme park builder will have not one but two new games vying for their attention today, as both Planet Coaster and RollerCoaster Tycoon World are out now. The two titles have been playable for a while now (RollerCoaster Tycoon World has been in Early Access since March 30, and gamers who purchased the Planet Coaster: Thrillseeker Edition have been able to play an early version of Frontier‘s title for a few months as well)
Planet Coaster® – the future of coaster park simulation games has arrived! Surprise, delight and thrill incredible crowds as you build your coaster park empire – let your imagination run wild, and share your success with the world.
RollerCoaster Tycoon World™ is the newest installment in the legendary RCT franchise. This next-generation theme park simulation and building game includes fan-favorite features along with incredible new advancements!
User reviews for RollerCoaster Tycoon World seem to be negative so far, with gamers criticizing the title’s performance, graphics and gameplay. Of course, all of this could change as the game comes out of Early Access, but it seems that the theme park management simulation community is slowly moving away from Atari’s franchise, and drifting towards Frontier‘s latest release.
