Frontier Developments have announced that a new bit of DLC called the Planet Coaster Studios Pack will be available for purchase on March 27, 2018, according to an announcement on the game's Steam Community page.

Planet Coaster is a modern take on the theme park simulators of yesteryear developed by many of the same people behind the third Rollercoaster Tycoon game. It originally released in an Alpha state in mid-2016 and launched the full version of the game in November of that year. Since then, Frontier Developments have been working on additional content packs for the game. Some of the packs have been paid DLC, though pretty much every update has had a measure of free content made available for current owners.

 

The latest addition to the game is the Planet Coaster Studios Pack, a Hollywood-themed DLC that brings the glitz and glamor of the movies right to your park. Three new rides are being added with this pack. The Big Screen Tour is electric tour buses that can serve as a transport or tracked ride, the Re-Motion is an electric tracked ride with an adjustable robotic arm that holds the seats, and the Horror Heights is a thrilling multi-drop tower. The DLC will also include a hefty amount of animatronics, props, special effects, and stunts.

As is typical with the content packs released by Frontier Developments, current owners of the game will receive a bit of content for free regardless of whether or not they purchase this particular piece of DLC. All players will get access to hotels which will keep your guests in the park for longer, path tunneling, and the ability to trigger color changes or time of day changes at the flip of a switch.

 

If you don't yet own the game, you can pick up a copy for yourself over on Steam, Amazon (affiliate link) or directly from Frontier Developments for $44.99 or your regional equivalent. The Planet Coaster Studios Pack will be available on March 27, 2018, for $10.99. Do be sure to check out our review of the game to see what we thought of it!
