Unlike mobile versions of RollerCoaster Tycoon, the upcoming RollerCoaster Tycoon World game for PC will not have build timers.
Speaking with Digital Spy, Senior Producer Matthew Labunka said “There’s no build timers – the game is a premium, full PC game. So there’s a challenge mode, there’s a simulation mode – when you’re building your park, just the same way you would have ten years ago, but with some pretty cool new features associated with it.”
If you’re unfamiliar with the term, build timers are a monetization element often found in free-to-play games, which are common on mobile devices. They appear as needlessly long countdowns that keep you from progressing until you wait — sometimes for minutes, sometimes for hours or more.
