Planet Coaster’s Winter Update Adds New Rides, Shops & More
Frontier Developments has released a free winter update for its roller coaster building game Planet Coaster. The PC game just came out on November 17, so this is a short turnaround for new content. That it’s free can earn some goodwill from its players.
Planet Coaster has been doing well on Steam. Its competitor, Rollercoaster Tycoon World, also came out in November. However, it is not listed on Steam’s list of the 100 most popular games. It also has worse user reviews, earning a “mostly negative” overall score compared to Planet Coaster’s “very positive” score and having played both I can safely state that Planet Coaster is the fave here.
The update adds winter-themed items to the game, including a new arctic environment and the Festive King Coaster mascot. It also adds new park rides, like the Ferris Wheel-esque Collider and Bumpin’ Derby rides, the Sleigh Ride and Iron Horse tracked rides (for those who prefer gentler puttering around the park,) plus a new scenario, shops, winter theme and scenery objects, and a set of five new coaster blueprints. You can also open new shops in your park, like Cosmic Cow Ice Cream, Missy Good Donuts, and Pizza Pen.
