Planet Coaster is a beloved coaster park simulation game currently available on PC and now, the team over at Frontier Developments have revealed when fans can play the game on console. Gamers with a PS4, Xbox One, or Xbox Series console will be able to play starting November 10 while PS5 owners in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea have to wait until November 12 and UK, Europe, and the rest of the world will have to wait until November 19 to play the game from their couches.
Frontier’s first ever next-gen title brings all the fun and thrills of the critically acclaimed PC original to console. 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 personalize 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.
To make matters better, if you purchase Planet Coaster on Xbox One or PS4, you’ll be able to download the optimized next-gen version for free. If you buy the physical copy of the game, you’ll need to insert the game disc into the next-gen console in order to access the updated version. This means that this will not work for the PS5 Digital Edition or Xbox Series S.
But wait, there’s more! Planet Coaster: Deluxe Edition will also be available for fans to purchase (digitally only) and provides fans with the base game as well as the Magnificent Rides Collection and the Classic Rides Collection. This adds 18 new rides and coasters from around the world. Finally, anyone who pre-orders either version of the game at participating retailers will also get Oswald’s Magnificent Machine.
