RollerCoaster Tycoon World is a theme park construction and management simulation video game developed by Nvizzio Creations and published by Atari for Microsoft Windows. It is the fourth major installment in the RollerCoaster Tycoon series. The game was released on 16 November 2016. Players are able to build rides, shops and roller coasters, while monitoring elements such as budget, visitor happiness and technology research. Unlike RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile, the game does not include any micro-transactions. Similar to RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, the game features 3D graphics instead of the 2D isometric style of the first two installments in the series. When building roller coasters, the game makes use of a spline system instead of the old style of laying individual pieces.

Gameplay

Players are also allowed to “ride” the roller coasters they have created, and other rides they have placed in their park in the game, in either a first or third-person view. A new ‘Park Pulse’ mechanic was also introduced, allowing players to quickly find out how their park is doing and the customers’ thoughts, similar to Zoo Tycoon titles.[2]

The game contains several scenery and ride themes at launch, with more in development that will be released via free updates and paid expansion packs.[3][4] The game also introduces an “Architect mode”, allowing players to plan and layout the coaster’s model before constructing the coasters. Similar to the past installments, there are four different types of coasters available to build: steelinvertedwooden, and launch-track coasters. In addition, there are ten roller coasters per type. Coasters can be built freeform or the player can place pre-made designs into their park.[5] Unlike in the previous games, the roller coaster train may fly off the tracks if the roller coaster is built incorrectly. As a result, a new “safety-rating” option and medical staff has been added. User-generated content (including custom scenery) was available from release, as well as Steam Workshop support.[6] While terrain and environments are randomly generated in a map, players can still gain access to a terrain editor.[7]

Development

When Atari announced RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile, they also promised that a title for Windows was also being developed.[8] The game was officially announced during Gamescom 2014 with a teaser trailer, subtitled World.[9] The first screenshots and details of the game were revealed during PAX Prime 2014. Part way through development, Area 52 Games took over as the developer of the game from Pipeworks Software. The reasoning behind this has not yet been published by Atari, who announced the change along with the relaunch of the RollerCoaster Tycoon website. The game was due for release in early 2015, although it was revealed that they would not announce an official launch date until closer to the release of the game.[10] A closed alpha was also in development.[7] A new trailer showing gameplay was uploaded on 5 March 2015, showing an intro featuring real life POV footage of Goliath and Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain.[11]

Atari later revealed that a third developer had taken over from Area 52 Games, later confirmed to be Nvizzio Creations.[12] At the NVIDIA booth on PAX Prime 2015, Atari unveiled interactive gameplay for the game showing off their development build that featured coaster building and sandbox mode. On 29 September 2015, it was announced the release date would be 10 December 2015.[13][14] Two beta weekends preceded the release of the game. The first beta weekend was the last weekend of October and this beta was focused on the new spline-based Coaster Builder.[15] The first beta weekend took place as planned. However, feedback from this beta weekend led to Atari deciding to delay the game’s release to early 2016.[16] The developer noted the additional development time would allow them to add requested items and features such as “predefined piece” coaster building, additional coaster test feedback, a robust fencing tool, improved on-demand grid, and various smaller improvements.”[citation needed] Consequently, the second beta weekend was also delayed from November to December.
