New Rollercoaster Management Sim 'Park Beyond' Announced

Where we're going, we don't need tracks.

The management sim genre is practically bursting at the seams with every type of business gamers might care to digitally send into the stratosphere. Or in my case, digitally run into the ground out of the gate. Bandai Namco and Limbic Entertainment have officially thrown their hats into this particular ring with the announcement of Park Beyond.

As the name might suggest, Park Beyond would have you taking on the role of a park architect (parkitect?) charged with turning theme parks into gleam parks with an array of wild rides and attractions, straight from your imagination to the screen.

Don't just take my word for it though, check out the trailer below.

As you can see, Park Beyond is taking a slightly different approach to the theme park management sim by encouraging players to design rides that are impossible. Indeed, the word that's being used to describe this process is 'Impossification', so that should give you a good idea of what to expect.

The trailer shows a bunch of crazy contraptions that certainly wouldn't pass by even the most casual of health and safety inspectors, so either this is a video game, or somebody is shifting a serious amount of bribe money around this park. Probably the former.

Park Beyond will unfold over the course of a single-player campaign that will have budding parkitects (okay, I'm coining that) dreaming up increasingly more elaborate and gravity-defying coasters. Arriving on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC in 2022, keep an eye out for our preview of the game, which you can read here.
