Planet Coaster has been a game I’ve been waiting for. But I won’t have to wait much longer because it has now received its launch dates. The TBC placeholder is gone, and instead November has taken its place. And what’s better, the next generation edition will be available on the PlayStation 5’s release. Eeek!
I’m going to start queueing up now; I just hope I’m tall enough to enjoy the ride…

That means the game will be available on November 12th if you live in North America and November 19th in Europe. But you won’t be left out should you be waiting to upgrade your hardware or remain console-less. That’s because it will also be releasing on PlayStation 4 on November 10th, with the promise of a free next generation upgrade when the time comes.
So, buying it early and on this generation won’t cost you in the long run. In fact, preordering it now will benefit you – as this statement shows:
“Those that pre-order Planet Coaster: Console Edition or Planet Coaster: Deluxe Edition at participating retailers will receive Oswald’s Magnificent Machine. This remarkable, one-of-a-kind ride designed by Planet Coaster impresario Oswald B. Thompson, was his first coaster creation and embodies all the fun and excitement Oswald strives to achieve in his parks.”
But the game also comes with a few extras as standard, which is not something we can say often. This takes the form of two expansion packs (Magnificent Rides Collection and Classic Rides Collection), which adds 18 real-world-inspired rides to the game. Which makes me even more excited!
P.S. Be sure to check out the new trailer above for all things I couldn’t turn into words. It looks amazing.
