Some of you may have read my previous article announcing the date that the first beta weekend for RollerCoaster Tycoon World was set to go live. Now that the first beta is over, we received word today that the release date for the final game has been pushed back. Instead of getting your hands on RollerCoaster Tycoon World on December 10th, players will have to wait until sometime early next year to play the game.
If you are not already familiar with this game, RollerCoaster Tycoon World is set to be the latest entry into the RollerCoaster Tycoon series. The game was first show off more than a year ago through a small teaser trailer and it was expected to come out sometime in early 2015. Things didn't go as planned and the game was pushed back significantly. The most recent update came earlier this year on September 29th and we learned that the game was expected to be available on December 10th.
As many of you may already know, the RollerCoaster Tycoon video game series is a series of theme park simulation games. Players get to design and build their own theme parks, complete with roller coasters and various other attractions. Players will have to maintain their parks to keep their visitors happy, and to maintain steady profits. Some of the older member here may have played the original game back in the 90's to early 2000's.
The reason for this delay, much like any other delay these days, is to fine tune the game and address issues that beta testers may have ran into during the beta weekend. Nvizzio, the developers behind the game pushed out a blog post today detailing what they plan to fix. These things include better coaster builder functionality by using predefined lines and curves, improved coaster test mode feedback, improvements to the fence tool and improvements to the on-demand grid.
As a result of the delay, the second beta weekend has also been delayed slightly. The second beta will be available for testing sometime in December. What do you think? Are you fine with the delay? Are you excited for this game? Leave your thoughts below!
