Frontier has received positive responses from players after Alpha 2 was released of Planet Coaster back in May.
We have some new news on the successor to the RollerCoaster Tycoon series. Frontier sent an email to fans to notify them that a Steam version is coming soon. Those who purchased the alpha version or pre-ordered the game will get a Steam key in the upcoming weeks.
The next Alpha version of Planet Coaster will require all users to play through Steam according to an FAQ on their website.
“Planet Coaster Alpha 3 will build on Steam Workshop features and so requires access to Steam to play. You will not be able to use the Frontier Launchpad to play Planet Coaster from Alpha 3 onwards”
Planet Coaster Alpha 3 is scheduled for release on August 23.
