Today Frontier Developments not only gave us the second developer diary for Planet Coaster: Console Edition. In addition, it was confirmed that buyers of the next-gen consoles can look forward to a free upgrade.
As it was confirmed a few weeks ago, the theme park simulation Planet Coaster will be available for consoles this autumn. Since the two next-generation systems of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S are supplied with the Planet Coaster: Console Edition in addition to the console generation that is slowly coming to an end, the question of a free upgrade should of course have arisen.
In a current press release, Frontier Developments confirmed the possibility of a free upgrade. The whole thing applies to both the download and the retail version of the Planet Coaster: Console Edition.
Please note, however, that it is not possible to upgrade from the retail version to the download version. So if you should consider buying the Xbox Series S or the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, you should consider this fact when purchasing your game.
Today’s announcement was accompanied by the second developer diary, in which the makers of Frontier Developments go into a little more detail about the console implementation of the theme park simulation. According to official information, Planet Coaster will offer the same depth of play on the consoles as the PC version.
“The living, breathing world of Planet Coaster combines physics driven realism, piece by piece construction and advanced simulation to offer control over every aspect of a park. The challenging yet rewarding sim tasks players to be the boss as they create the park of their dreams, full of thrills, chills and spills,” said the developers.
