Roller Coaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition Releasing as EGS Freebie
Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 is getting a slightly improved Complete Edition, and it’s releasing as a freebie this week on the Epic Games Store. The Complete Edition as the final piece of the original Roller Coaster Tycoon trifecta brings all of the theme park simulation stuff you’d expect to the Nintendo Switch and Epic Games Store. The game boasts improved graphics and both Soaked! and Wild! expansions for gamers to play through. Roller Coaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition releases on September 24th for Nintendo Switch and PC, while EGS fans have until October 1st to secure this free offer.
The home page of the Epic Games Store notifies games of their current free offers, and the newest one coming to their platform, with Roller Coaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition releasing as a freebie the day that it launches. This makes the EGS an essential download for any Roller Coaster Tycoon fans that are looking for a cheap way to play the beloved franchise from the 2000s. Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 is the last of the Roller Coaster Tycoon original trilogy before the developers started experimenting with ideas that led them astray.
The main draw to play Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 on Switch is the ability to build the ultimate theme park wherever you want, but PC gamers get the supreme visuals, being able to play the modernized classic in widescreen mode and 1080p. The visuals have been uprezzed, but you’ll find that they still look outdated due to the simplistic art design of NPC’s featured in the initial Roller Coaster Tycoon titles. RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 was initially pulled from online retailers in 2018 when Frontier Developments filed a lawsuit against Atari for failing to pay the appropriate royalties, but this Complete Editiion brings the game back for all to enjoy.
