If you've been craving a solid roller coaster sim, the biggest one out there is headed to consoles next year. As part of Microsoft's X019 celebration today, Frontier Developments announced that a console version of Planet Coaster will hit Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in 2020.
"The living, breathing world of Planet Coaster combines physics driven realism, piece by piece construction and advanced simulation to offer control over every aspect of a park," Frontier Developments plc said in a press release. "The challenging yet rewarding sim tasks players to be the boss as they create the park of their dreams, full of thrills, chills and spills."
When it arrives on consoles, Planet Coaster will bring with it all of the free content that has been added since its launch on PC, Frontier Developments said in a blog post. In the game, you can build a theme park in any way you see fit in a bid to give your visitors the thrill of their lives.
