    From Eurogamer:

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2...-tycoon-simulation-evolved-announced-for-2016

    Looks like it could be a slightly-more-serious portrayal of RCT3. :)

    I'm hoping that the coaster types are different in this game - not like Steel/Carbon/etc in RCT4. :/

    I have more faith in Frontier to do a decent job on this than I do in Atari with RCTW, we don't even know who's developing that anymore.

    I'm really excited about this, I just hope they allow for custom content.

    This looks more like it. Hell, I'd play the heck out of a HD remake of RCT2. RCT3 was great but it was way to cartoonish. The new Atari game looks absolutely crud. I have a lot of faith in frontier to put things right. They now know what the fans want and they can do it, even if it's a slightly more polished version of RCT3 with Sim style characters.

    This looks pretty good.

    Although the one thing that will make or break all these upcoming theme park simulation games is custom content support.

    I think it's about time we started talking about Planet Coaster again:



    Finally we have a game that truly looks like the Theme Park game of this generation!

    I'm quite a fan of the similar building construction system to The Sims, something I thought RCT would always benefit from.

    Frontier have now released an alpha of this game, and it looks incredible. The amount of customisation is staggering.

    Take a look at a couple of these videos:

    Oops - I think that was from a mistake in the original Eurogamer article I quoted (which has since been corrected).

    No mistake, the original title was Coaster Park Tycoon. Due to it sounding way too similar to Roller Coaster Tycoon they edited park to planet and the order was switched. Eventually they decided just to drop the Tycoon completely.

    I've got the Alpha version of this, whilst some features are slightly frustrating, (such as paths) the game is far more advanced and more enjoyable the RCTW. I'm sure when this game is released it will be the best sim on the market.

    If you have a spare hour, the latest livestream is definitely worth a watch. The attention to detail is amazing.



    The next major release is coming this Tuesday, which includes the full coaster builder amongst other things.

    Don't forget the terrain editor which is mindblowingly powerful!
