Planet Coaster to Launch on Steam in Q4 2016

I am a bit of a sucker for theme park/coaster games. I suspect that has a little (or a lot) to do with my wife's interest in them as well as actually going to theme parks (yay Cedar Point!). As a result, I tend to keep an eye on those types of titles when news comes out about them.

Press release:

Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) today announced their highly anticipated coaster park simulation, Planet Coaster, will launch on Steam in Q4 2016.
Planet Coaster will be made available for pre-order on Steam starting 25 August. Planet Coaster is already available for pre-order on, and all customers will receive a Steam key at launch.
Steam and Steam Workshop will form the backbone of Planet Coaster’s in-game community and sharing features starting with the launch of Planet Coaster Alpha 3 on 23 August.
Following the launch of Planet Coaster Alpha 3 on 23 August, playing Planet Coaster will require Steam. Alpha players will find a Steam key available on their profile starting 23 August. Steam is free and new players can create a Steam account here.
Planet Coaster Alpha access is available exclusively on until 25 August, when Frontier will close Alpha access to all new customers. Alpha 3 will launch via Steam, and will continue to be playable and supported by Frontier until Planet Coaster prepares to enter its Beta phase (date to be announced).
