Planet Coaster announced for 2016

Frontier Developments' spiritual successor to Roller Coaster Tycoon 3.

Roller Coaster and Elite: Dangerous developer Frontier Developments has announced Planet Coaster.

It will be available for PC in 2016.

It looks a little like Roller Coaster Tycoon, only with the ability to shape even more of the landscape.

“Tycoon games and coaster park simulations in particular are as much part of Frontier's DNA as space games,” said Frontier chief creative officer Jonny Watts. “Planet Coaster brings our sky-high production values and cutting-edge tech to bear on the Tycoon genre we so love, and we are looking forward to engaging with another passionate community of players as we develop Planet Coaster.”

Here's Planet Coaster's reveal trailer from the PC Gaming E3 conference:
