Screamride is an upcoming construction and management simulator developed by Frontier Developments and published by Microsoft Studios for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. It is scheduled to be released on March 3, 2015 in North America and March 6, 2015 in Europe.
Screamride is a spiritual successor to RollerCoaster Tycoon. The game featured more than 50 levels and three gameplay modes: Engineer, ScreamRider and Demolition Expert. In the Engineering mode, players can build and customise their own roller coaster and thrill rides with extreme designs with props, ride pieces and modular scenery available. Players are also tasked to solve construction puzzles in order to create coasters, amusements and environments from the ground-up. In the Screamrider mode, players can ride and take control of the coasters created. In the Demolition Expert mode, Players are tasked with demolishing environments and objects to meet various conditions in order to gain points. All parts of the roller coaster are destructible. Removing any single part will naturally cause derailment of the coasters. Destroying the coaster will also lead to the destruction of buildings. Well placed coaster destruction could lead to the collapse of an skyscraper.
Although the game does not feature multiplayer, it features an online leaderboard. Players can also take control of coasters shared and created by other players through Xbox Live (Xbox One only). They can also race with others to ride a coaster as fast as possible and gain “scream rating” through the process.
