Atari has released the debut gameplay footage of RollerCoaster Tycoon World, the first PC entry in the series in more than a decade.

The trailer takes us on a quick tour through an amusement park and for a ride on a rollercoaster, which you can do in the game using a variety of camera angles, including first-person. This isn't our very first look at the game--Atari provided some screenshots last year--but it is the first time we're seeing it in motion. We've still yet to see the game's interface or what it looks like from the isometric camera angle it's played from.

World features both single-player and multiplayer, the latter of which lets you run a park with other players or visit other players' parks. Coasters can be constructed in 3D for the first time in series history, and terrain will be completely deformable.

Some fans of the franchise worried about its future when RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 was released last spring as a free-to-play mobile game. That was the first numbered release since 2004, and there was some blowback from players over the move to mobile and free-to-play. Atari reassured fans last year that RCT 4 wasn't representative of the series' future, and announced a "full premium PC experience" without microtransactions was coming in the form of World.

A price for World has not yet been announced, but a new Steam page lists its release date as "mid 2015." You can check out a handful of World screenshots in the gallery below.
