Planet Coaster 1.0.1 adds new blueprints and harder challenge mode

Planet Coaster hasn’t been out very long, but is already gaining huge praise as the spiritual successor to Theme Park we’ve waited over 2 decades for.

It also seems like the developer is keen to pump out regular content updates as the first major patch is already live, with a further update coming next month that adds more free content.

This update adds some new blueprints to Planet Coaster, including additional shops and scenery.

There’s also a wealth of bug fixes and a brand new ‘harder’ challenge mode.
