There’s been a bit confusion surrounding RollerCoaster Tycoon World these last few weeks. Atari’s management sim hadn’t had an official release date announced yet, despite actual boxed copies appearing in some stores in Europe. Those who bought it quickly found out the codes inside weren’t recognised by Steam, but this has now been sorted by developer Nvizzio Creations, announcing RollerCoaster Tycoon World launches on Steam Early Access this coming Wednesday, March 30th.
We haven’t seen a great deal of it in recent months so this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, but Atari has announced RollerCoaster Tycoon World has stumbled off a ride and vomited into a bin, and won’t make its December launch. But don't worry, a janitor will be here to sweep up the mess by early 2016.
The release date of the next installment of the popular RollerCoaster Tycoon series has been announced over on its official website, for the 10th of December this year. In Jon's news article last week he declared his doubts about the game still heading for a 2015 launch, and I think most of us shared that fear. I know I did.
Against all odds, and despite being onto its third developer in the space of a year, RollerCoaster Tycoon World is looking extremely decent in a recent behind-the-scenes video. Nvizzio Creations took the reins from Area 52 back in May and since then have transformed RollerCoaster Tycoon World from its original low budget cartoony visual style into a genuine theme park simulator fit for 2015.
RollerCoaster Tycoon World’s troubled development has taken yet another barrel rool into an inverted loop, as publisher Atari reveals it has switched developer yet again. Montreal-based studio Nvizzio Creations is now heading up the project; the third studio to work on the sequel.
A number of us were understandably worried when that RollerCoaster Tycoon World trailer surfaced a few weeks ago. It wasn’t necessarily indicative the game itself would be terrible, but the visuals looked as if you’d smeared your own eyes with candy floss before hopping on the spinning teacups.
If there’s one thing we need on this planet, it’s more theme park management titles, and Area 52 is duly obliging with RollerCoaster Tycoon World. The fourth main title in the RollerCoaster Tycoon series and the first for more than a decade, RollerCoaster Tycoon World comes packing a suite of new features and tools to tempt back big dipper fans.
Oh RollerCoaster Tycoon, how we've missed you. The peep-chundering theme park management experience is finally returning after a long break, delivering more thrills and spills in the shape of RollerCoaster Tycoon World - now in the hands of Area 52 Games, the fourth dev in four games.
The fate of RollerCoaster Tycoon has long been shrouded in mystery. It’s now over 10 years since RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 graced PCs across the globe, and the wait for a sequel has been painful, to say the least. After the poorly received mobile-exclusive F2P RollerCoaster Tycoon 4, Atari sought to make amends through announcing RollerCoaster Tycoon World on PC.
Atari’s been parading RollerCoaster Tycoon World around PAX Prime, and we’ve got hold of some of the first gameplay screenshots yet of the return for the much-loved management series. Gamers were understandably worried when Atari trotted out RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 for mobile but, true to its word, RollerCoaster Tycoon World is looking like a return to what we know and love about the series.
Atari has announced the return of the RollerCoaster Tycoon series, revealing RollerCoaster Tycoon World for a barrel-load more vomit-inducing larks. Set to be the fourth main entry in the RollerCoaster Tycoon series, Atari is clearly keen to eliminate the damage from RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile.
