RollerCoaster Tycoon® Adventures Available Now for Windows PC Exclusively through the Epic Games store

I received an email from Atari this morning, with the official launch press release for the latest version of RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures. Today, the game was officially released for what we all know is the franchises birth place, the PC. The release of RCT Adventures on the PC should not be much of a surprise to any fan of the game, but where it was officially released was the cool part, at least in our opinion over here at Atari Edge. As the gaming world continues to surf along the wave that is Fortnite, anything related to Epic Games continues to be the in thing. The next wave that Epic Games is trying to ride is the online store platform. This is what makes the latest RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures so interesting, as Atari and the Epic Games Store have partnered up for the latest RollerCoaster Tycoon release. The release of RollerCoaster Tycoon® Adventures for Windows PC, available exclusively through the Epic Games store. Originally released for the Nintendo Switch™ in late 2018, RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures brings the legendary RollerCoaster Tycoon® series into the next generation, for an accessible to all ages entry combining classic RollerCoaster Tycoon gameplay with brand-new challenges that make every park its own adventure!

As Atari continues to move forward, partnerships like the latest with the Epic Games Store are great for the legendary brand that through the years has survived through some amazing ups and incredible downs. When asked about his thoughts on Atari's partnership with the Epic Games Store, Jean-Marcel Nicolai, Chief Operating Officer at Atari said, “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with the Epic Games store to bring this new casual entry in Chris Sawyer’s beloved RollerCoaster Tycoon series to its birthplace on Windows PC. RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures is a fantastic entry point in the series for players of all ages and skill levels, and it's now further accessible to fans on Windows PC. The Epic Games store is a fantastic new platform for creators and players alike, and we’re honored to begin our support of it with RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures.”

RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures is the latest entry in one of the best-selling and most cherished franchises in PC gaming history. RollerCoaster Tycoon was created by legendary game developer Chris Sawyer and first released on Windows PC in 1999. The series quickly became a favorite of gamers. Nvizzio Creations, developer of the critically acclaimed mobile title RollerCoaster Tycoon® Touch™, returns as the developer of RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures, bringing an exciting and accessible new twist to the world of RollerCoaster Tycoon. The PC version, which is directly ported from Nintendo Switch features support for mouse and keyboard controls.

In RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures, players have three distinct game modes to build their entertainment empire — Adventure Mode (a spin on the classic Campaign mode), tricky Scenarios, and the open Sandbox. Over 120 wonderfully wacky rides, restaurants, and shops ensure parks burst with eye-catching action, and the intuitive coaster builder lets players create wild, death-defying coasters with ease. Four unique themed environments, along with water and terraforming options, ensure every park is distinct and exciting. A streamlined simulation and game economy allow players of all ages and skill levels to build the park of their dreams.

I enjoy anything gaming related that can link my childhood gaming to the gaming of my now soon to be 8 year old son. He has enjoyed RollerCoaster Tycoon on the iPad, Android Tablet, and Switch. He also is a huge fan of computer gaming, and of course Fortnite, so the partnership between Atari and the Epic Games Store to release the latest version of RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures exclusively through the Epic Games Store is another cool way of bridging the generations of gaming. At Atari Edge, we are huge fans of this latest partnership.
