Two brand new packs bring ghoulish goings on and cinematic thrills to Planet Coaster: Console Edition
Cambridge, UK – 26th April 2021 Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) today announced two brand new packs for Planet Coaster: Console Edition. Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters™ and the Studios Pack will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5 on 29 April, giving players everywhere the chance to expand their parks like never before.
Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters is the ultimate love letter to the hit movie. It features the supreme vocal talents of Dan Aykroyd and William Atherton in a brand new story-driven scenario.. There’s also authentic scenery pieces aplenty and sound effects straight from the 1984 original, including the ECTO-1, Slimer, Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, the Ghostbusters HQ, and Spook Central, offering everything players need to create a hauntingly good park.
Players can enthral guests with an assortment of new blueprints, a multitude of building materials, and a brand new flat ride and coaster. These are RollerGhoster, a twisting, turning, Slimer-themed kiddie coaster; and The Ghostbusters Experience, an interactive tracked ride where guests bust ghosts and score points as they ride around in the ECTO-1. Players can even take a ride themselves and fire Proton Packs to take down the colourful spirits and spectres in first-person.
Bringing the blockbuster experience to Planet Coaster: Console Edition, the Studios Pack lets players choreograph heart-pounding stunt shows, design exciting backlot tours, and create cinematic thrill rides that put guests right in the heart of the action.
The Studios Pack contains over 90 new blueprints, hundreds of new scenery items and construction pieces, and three incredible new rides. These are Big Screen Tour, a bus-based ride bringing park guests face-to-face with silver screen spectacles; Re-Motion, a simulator-style tracked ride in which an adjustable robotic arm tilts riders in all directions; and Horror Heights, a chilling drop tower dark ride.
Both Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters and Studios Pack make wonderful additions to the world of Planet Coaster: Console Edition.
Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters is available for a suggested retail price of £12.99/$14.99/€14.99. The Studios Pack is available for a suggested retail price of £7.99/$9.99/€9.99. They both release for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5, on April 29th.
