Cambridge, UK – July 26, 2016
Frontier Developments plc today announced their highly anticipated coaster park simulation, Planet Coaster, will launch on Steam in Q4 2016.
Planet Coaster will be made available for pre-order on Steam starting 25 August. Planet Coaster is already available for pre-order on FrontierStore.net, and all FrontierStore.net customers will receive a Steam key at launch.
Steam and Steam Workshop will form the backbone of Planet Coaster’s in-game community and sharing features starting with the launch of Planet Coaster Alpha 3 on 23 August.
Following the launch of Planet Coaster Alpha 3 on 23 August, playing Planet Coaster will require Steam. Alpha players will find a Steam key available on their FrontierStore.net profile starting 23 August. Steam is free and new players can create a Steam account here.
Planet Coaster Alpha access is available exclusively on FrontierStore.net until 25 August, when Frontier will close Alpha access to all new customers. Alpha 3 will launch via Steam, and will continue to be playable and supported by Frontier until Planet Coaster prepares to enter its Beta phase (date to be announced).
