Frontier Developments has announced that new alpha versions of Planet Coaster will only be accessible via Steam. The previous alpha versions of the game were playable without the Steam DRM environment.
Players who have already purchased the game will get a digital redeem code to unlock the title on Steam. For players who do not wish to use Steam to play the game the developer has a refund policy available that will allow players to get their money back.
Frontier Developments will stop selling access to the game on its own website on August 25th. The title will not be available for purchase on Steam immediately. The new versions will only be playable through the digital distribution platform.
