Planet Coaster: Console Edition Receives A New Dev Diary

As Planet Coaster: Console Edition slowly makes its way toward a release date, Frontier Developments have released a new dev diary. The team has already released a couple of these as back in August they had you Met the Makers at Frontier who were working on this version of the game, and then in September, the team showed off the process of bringing the game to console with Expanding the Experience. This time around they're giving us the essential grand tour of options as they highlight the different Ways To Play. You can check out the video at the bottom and see the new tutorial system, challenges, UI, and more. We're still waiting on them to give us an official release date as the game is currently earmarked for the "Holidays" without a proper timeframe. We're guessing late-November at this point to go with Cyber Monday.
