The Vintage Pack DLC for theme park simulator Planet Coaster will be arriving on July 10, 2018, according to a news post on the game's official website.
Planet Coaster is one of several newer entries in the theme park simulator genre. Created by a team featuring many of the same people behind Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, Planet Coaster has released several pieces of DLC and free updates since the game's initial release in late 2016. Our preview of the title looked at some of the game's core mechanics and our later review particularly praised the game for its music and variety in its scenery. That scenery (and much more) will be expanding with the upcoming Vintage Pack DLC.
Two new wooden coasters will be added to the game's already-impressive array of rides. The Zephyrus is a high-speed wooden coaster that has some character (read: it's a bit scruffy) and Aces Sky has biplane-styled cars navigating sideways through a large wooden pipe. Five new regular rides will also be coming in this DLC. Round The World is a gentle ride similar to a Ferris wheel, Loop Da Loop is a twin-cabin inverting swinger from the 1930's, and Test Flight is an inverting plane ride that the guests can control themselves to a degree. Hurricane is a ride with a lot of twists and turns, and Centrum is a fast-spinning staple of classic carnivals that angles itself at 50 degrees.
Players will be able to add machines to their park like you would find at any fairground. Gumball and popcorn machines will deliver delicious treats to your guests, the magical Zoltan will predict the future, and the classic crane game will challenge guests to grab up delightful prizes. You can set the odds of these machines to be as generous or as stingy as you'd like.
Of course, a whole bunch of new vintage-themed scenery and wall sets will be coming with this pack, too. If you're not too keen on this particular pack, worry not - a free update will also be launching that brings recolorable staff, photo filters, a new free wooden coaster, and more. The Vintage Pack DLC for Planet Coaster launches on July 10, 2018. If you don't yet own Planet Coaster, you can buy it on Steam, directly from the developers, or via Humble Bundle (and help support TechRaptor) for $44.99 or your regional equivalent.
