Planet Coaster: Console Edition will probably be the first game I buy for my Xbox Series S

It looks like a dream come true

We are less than a month away from the launch of the Xbox Series X/S, and while Microsoft might not have the big, tentpole releases its competition will have, that doesn’t mean early adopters will be left with nothing to play. There is a bevy of titles that will be optimized for the new consoles at launch, including some shiny new games from Ubisoft and Sega.

However, the release I’m most looking forward to isn’t all that new. In fact, it’ll be nearly four years old when it makes its long awaited jump from PC to consoles. But after watching the new trailer below for Planet Coaster: Console Edition, I can see the wait will have been worth it.

Planet Coaster: Console Edition will feature a brand-new interface designed with a standard game controller in mind. Like in the PC version, players will have access to the Frontier Workshop, where they can browse designs and ideas uploaded by other players and share their own as well.

This is the closest I’ll probably ever get to owning my own theme park — which is my lifelong goal — so you can be sure I’m going to put every ounce of creativity I have into making it extraordinary.

Planet Coaster: Console Edition launches in North America on November 10 for PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, and on November 12 for PS5. Anybody who purchases a digital version of the game on either the PS4 or Xbox One will get a free upgrade to the next-gen version. There will also be a deluxe edition of the game available at launch that will include 18 new rides. Anybody who preorders the standard or deluxe version will also get access to the Oswald’s Magnificent Machine ride.
