Publisher Atari and developers Nvizzio today announced the release date for RollerCoaster Tycoon World, its price, and its planned beta phases.

The game is targeted for a December 10, 2015 release date, priced at $50 ($60 for “Deluxe Edition”), and will include two pre-launch beta phases. We're told that the Deluxe Edition includes “two unique building maps, terrain additions, a digital art book, and the classic Panda mascot,” the last of which will be deployable to parks for guest interaction.

Atari indicates that early pre-orders will be accompanied by pre-release beta access, with dates to be announced. Further information is available on the official site or Steam page.

We previously looked at RCTW over here, where Atari demonstrated the game's basic park editing and track creation tools in video form. We have re-embedded that video below. With the release date announcement now live, we've got a few additional RCTW articles that will be published in forthcoming weeks. Check back regularly for those.

New screenshots can be found in the gallery below.

As always, we strongly encourage that potential pre-purchasers research their decision thoroughly and exercise caution before committing to any pre-release title. If in doubt, wait for our review.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
