Planet Coaster Early-Bird Alpha 2 Available Today!

Terrain sculpting and coaster construction unlock the next level of creativity on the road to Q4 2016 release.

Today we launched the second phase of Planet Coaster’s Early-Bird Alpha for PC, putting the most powerful creative tools ever designed for a simulation game in the hands of the Planet Coaster Alpha community.

Planet Coaster is the next great leap for creative gaming and coaster park simulation, building on a decade of experience from the studio behind the genre’s benchmark. At launch, Planet Coaster will deliver the most powerful creative tools, the deepest coaster park simulation, the most expressive and believable crowds, and the most comprehensive sharing and community features. All in the world’s most authentic coaster park game. 

Planet Coaster’s Early-Bird Alpha launched in March, allowing players to build rides, lay paths, place scenery and explore the revolutionary modular construction system. The extraordinary success of the first Alpha has seen YouTube flooded with spectacular creations from the incredible Planet Coaster Alpha community. 

Planet Coaster Alpha 2 takes another major step towards launch. Alpha 2’s new Terrain Sculpting toolset lets players reshape the earth itself, forging hills, mountains, craters and caverns to create something truly unique. Whether building the coaster park of your dreams, re-creating a natural wonder or crafting impossible floating islands in the sky, Planet Coaster lets you bring any creative vision to life.

And Alpha 2 players can now build their own rollercoasters with Planet Coaster’s advanced construction toolset. Planet Coaster Alpha 2 lets players build high into the sky, tunnel below ground and even carve through mountains as they build without limits. Alpha 2 introduces more authentic coaster types, new stations and all-new paint options to offer unprecedented opportunities for customization and creativity. 

Planet Coaster Alpha 2 also adds dozens of new features to make construction easier than ever before. Advanced controls allow for precision editing of scenery, all-new building pieces unlock new design options, and new curved elevated paths let guests explore your parks from every angle.
