is an upcoming construction and management simulation video game, developed by Pipeworks Software and published by Atari, Inc. It is the fourth major installment in the RollerCoaster Tycoon series and planned to be released in early 2015 for Microsoft Windows.
Players will be able to build rides, shops and roller coasters, while monitoring elements such as budget, visitor happiness and technology research. Unlike RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile, the game won't include any micro-transactions. Similar to RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, the game features 3D graphics instead of pixelated style of the classics. When placing rides, the game will make use of a spline system instead of the old style of laying individual pieces. Players also allowed to “ride” the roller coasters they have created, and other ride they placed in their park in the game, in both a 1st and 3rd person view. A new 'Park Pulse' mechanic was also introduced, allow players to quickly find out how their park is doing and the customers' thought, similar to the recent Zoo Tycoon titles.
The game will also feature multiplayer capabilities, a first for the series. The player will be able to visit other players' parks, and share roller coaster blueprints with others so they are permitted to build them in their own game. The new multiplayer mode will also allow four players to manage the same park online, with each one controlling a different section of the park. The size of each section is about the size of a regular theme park . Concern is raised about the multiplayer whether they are compulsory, like SimCity or optional. Pipeworks Software later explained to PC Gamer during their preview that it was optional. Players were allow to play on their own like previous titles. In addition, there is no way one player can affect or stall the development, or drag the ratings of other players' park.
When Atari announced RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile, they promised that a full PC experience is coming. The game was officially announced during Gamescom 2014 with a teaser trailer, subtitled World. The first screenshots and details of the game was revealed during PAX Prime 2014.
