rctwhayride

Dear Tycoons,

It is a very exciting day for RollerCoaster Tycoon World. Today, we are proud to announce that our worldwide release date is December 10, 2015 on both PC and Linux-based systems!

Also, we are announcing our RCTW pre-order program, which will give you access to our two prelaunch Beta weekends, allowing you to play before anyone else! The Beta weekends will take place in late October and late November, 2015.

Beta periods are an extremely important part of the development process as they allow us to see how players are interacting with the game prior to a larger release. This gives us time to make final tweaks, polish, and bug fixes before launching. It also allows, you, the community, to channel your feedback to us by playing the game and letting us know what you think. Any and all feedback is appreciated! With the Beta program, there is no better way to get involved in the development of RCTW – other than being an actual developer of course!

And one other thing – You can pre-order RollerCoaster Tycoon World RIGHT NOW!!! Please note that you must pre-order the game to take part in the Beta programs.

RollerCoaster Tycoon World will be available in both Standard and Deluxe editions. The Deluxe Edition includes two additional maps, terrain texture additions, a digital art book, a gold park entrance, and the classic Panda mascot! Details on both editions can be found by Clicking Here.

Additionally, as a thank you for your support and feedback, every preorder comes with 5 additional peep skins! Show off to the world that you were an early adopter by having 5 exclusive peeps in your park!

And we haven’t forgotten about all the future UGC-creators. We are currently working on a way for you to be able to get a head start on content creation. A number of you have emailed us about this and we ask that you please stay tuned for announcements soon on that topic.

I know this forum is mainly in English, but there are a lot of non-native English speakers who love RCT. This is why I am also delighted to announce that the game will support the following languages at launch: French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Dutch, and Simplified Chinese!

Lastly, some good news for you Mac users out there – RCTW WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR MAC! We don’t have a set release date yet for our Mac edition, but we’ll update you all as soon as we have more information.

With that, I wanted to personally thank all who show support for the great team making RollerCoaster Tycoon World. Nvizzio has been overwhelmed with the amazing response to their work so far, and to the behind-the-scenes video. So on behalf of all of them, thank you!

We can’t wait to share the game with you and discuss your Beta gameplay in our forums. As we head into the home stretch, this collaboration between the community and the developers is invaluable in making the best RCT game possible. We’ll be in touch again soon, but until then, one last treat – two brand-new screenshots!

Cheers,
Mattlab
