Im hopeful! Pipeworks Software (the company that are producing the game) seem to be listening to what everyone is saying on their facebook status's. And also they just announced that Chris Sawyer would be helping in the making of this game. Im sure that his involvement will be very low but it is good news! Here are some of the announcements of the upcoming game.
RollerCoaster Tycoon World will have all the features you would expect from previous titles and will be micro-transaction free.
"Many of the new features in RollerCoaster Tycoon World were not possible a few years ago, but we have taken advantage of technological improvements to offer a wildly fun gaming experience that stays true to the storied franchise," Atari CEO Fred Chesnais said in a press release.
He added, "Other players' parks can be visited, and coaster blueprints can be shared online as well –– Pipeworks wants to make RollerCoaster Tycoon World the most connected Tycoon title yet...."
RollerCoaster Tycoon World is a construction and management simulation video game, developed by Pipeworks Software and published by Atari, Inc.. It is the fourth major installment in the RollerCoaster Tycoon series and planned to be released in early 2015 for Microsoft Windows.
Players will be able to build rides, shops and roller coasters, while keeping an eye on things like budget, visitor happiness and technology research. The game will also feature multiplayer capabilities, a first for the series. The player will be able to visit other players' parks, and share your roller coaster blueprints with others so they are allow to build them in their own game. The new multiplayer mode will also allow four players to manage the same park online. Unlike RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile, the game won't include any micro-transactions.
Most of this is good news. The online feature is something that will be welcomed and although its not very important it will be a nice extra feature (just as long as it doesnt take away from the actual game in any way!) They did say "Players will be able to build rides, shops and roller coasters, while keeping an eye on things like budget, visitor happiness and technology research." which is great because these features are 100% necessary and its just good to know they won't be left out. Also, Atari have announced that it will be micro-transaction free (thank god!) and also mentioned it would be a 'full PC experience'.
Overall, I am actually pretty excited and hopeful for this game. Im leaving my full judgement for when the game is released of course, but there is enough good news to be positive! (Sorry about the long post by the way, got a bit carried away! XD)
