With Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Complete Edition hitting Steam back in September, it definitely triggered plenty of nostalgia for PC gaming in the old days. Designing parks, tending to guests, and making sure everything was running smoothly provided plenty of fun in those days. Fast forward to 2020, and the park management genre is still going strong. The core tenets have not changed much, but player expectations sure have. What if you were not content with just building parks, and you would rather have your friends along for the ride? That dream can now be fulfilled with the Parkitect multiplayer update.
On December 8, up to eight different players can enjoy running and ruining a theme park together. The Parkitect multiplayer will be the closest you can get to having eight people crowded around the same computer doing the same thing. It will most certainly be a mess, but what a glorious mess it will likely be.
The new trailer certainly makes everything seems nice and cordial. Reality will surely be the opposite of that. As more players join in, their cursors will start to appear on-screen. Everyone will be able to manipulate, build, and change objects as they see fit.
The new Parkitect multiplayer update will arrive on the same date as the game’s two year anniversary. Since its release a few years ago, the theme park management simulator has received two DLC packs to liven things up. There has also been plenty of free support throughout by developer Texel Raptor. With this new Parkitect multiplayer update, much work has surely gone into the game to make it happen.
If you want to enjoy the game before the multiplayer mayhem drops, you can do so on Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store. There is also a 25% discount happening now on Steam.
