RollerCoaster Tycoon World Beta Intamin Coaster POV
It's been a while since everyone has heard about when the 2nd Beta Weekend of Rollercoaster Tycoon World will be. Initially we were told there would be a Beta weekend at the end of October & 2nd weekend at the end of November.
However, feedback from the initial beta test phase resulted in a huge overhaul of the games most important system, the coaster builder. Not that the spline based system didn't have some merit as it will allow for limitless coaster combinations. Unfortunately the spline system needed much tweaking, and there are certain types of track parts that would just be better pre-built (zero-g rolls, vertical loops, & straight track anyone?).
Now it's been months since we were promised the 2nd beta weekend, and instead, us fans of RCT World have been thwarted with another Alienware live broadcast, and numerous ambiguous blog posts.
I know that the developers are working hard, and I'm glad. I would much rather have a smooth running & final product, instead of one that is ripe with problems. Did anyone play the Beta Release of RollerCoaster Tycoon World? Is anyone planning on buying the game? What are your thoughts?
