RollerCoaster Tycoon World, the latest entry in the long-running park simulation and management series, will launch for PC on December 10, Atari announced today. The publisher also confirmed that preorders for the game have now opened; everyone who pre-buys receives access to upcoming betas and some skins.

A standard version of RollerCoaster Tycoon World goes for $50, while a Deluxe Edition will sell for $60. This premium package also comes with extra content like more maps, terrain options, a digital art book, and the classic panda mascot seen in past games. You can preorder the game on Steam or via its website.

RollerCoaster Tycoon World is being developed by Nvizzio Creations in partnership with Atari. It was originally scheduled to launch in mid-2015, but criticism of the game's visuals prompted a change in art style so that the game looks more realistic.

The game is being produced in partnership with Six Flags, which is supplying developers with real-life park blueprints, details on ride physics, and guest traffic patterns. There will be two pre-release betas, but start-dates have not been announced. Earlier this year, the developer insisted it "will not release the game until we know that it is truly ready. If the game needs to be 'put back into the oven,' then we will do it."

The last proper RollerCoaster Tycoon for PC, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, was released in 2004.
