Elite: Dangerous developer creating theme park simulator 'Planet Coaster'


This isn't set in space...

In a strong departure from the space battles of Elite: Dangerous, Frontier announced a theme park simulator tonight at the PC gaming show at E3. The Planet Coaster: Simulation Evolved trailer started with an empty grass lot, but as it progressed various amusement park rides popped up.

Eventually it becomes a fully-fledged park with roller coasters, spinning rides, swinging rides, and a giant anthropomorphic dinosaur. Looks neat. It can be pre-ordered now.
