Planet Coaster: Console Edition | Meet the Makers: An Introduction

Originally released for the PC in 2016, Planet Coaster is a construction and management sim that has players building different theme park rides and rollercoasters. The Career Mode has players assuming the role of a theme park manager and completing tasks. Also included is a Sandbox Mode that has players creating their own theme park on an empty plot of land, and a Challenge Mode that has players taking funds and limited research into account.

Players can then share their creations through the “global village,” and make use of 10 different mascots.

The game will come out for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X this holiday season.
