Details as presented on official website Frontier Developments:
Retailing at a suggested retail price of £39.99/$49.99/€44.99 for the standard version, and £49.99/$59.99/€54.99 for the Deluxe Edition, the cross-gen launch means more players than ever can enjoy the thrill and excitement of running their own coaster park no matter what console they choose to play on.
With upgrade path support, those that purchase a digital copy of the game on PlayStation®4 or Xbox One will be able to download the optimised next-gen version free of charge when it becomes available by logging on to their next-gen console with the account they purchased the game on. Those that purchase a physical copy of the game will be able to download the optimised next-gen version at no extra cost when it becomes available by inserting the disc into their next-gen console. Next-gen upgrades are not available for physical versions of the game if players have upgraded to PlayStation®5 Digital Edition or Xbox Series S.
And that’s not all. Those that pre-order Planet Coaster: Console Edition or Planet Coaster: Deluxe Edition at participating retailers will receive Oswald’s Magnificent Machine. This remarkable, one-of-a-kind ride designed by Planet Coaster impresario Oswald B. Thompson, was his first coaster creation and embodies all the fun and excitement Oswald strives to achieve in his parks.
Planet Coaster: Console Edition will also have fully integrated Smart Delivery, meaning if you choose to purchase on the Xbox One, you will gain automatic access to an optimised version on Xbox Series X|S for free. A free upgrade will also be available from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 both for digital and physical players. For more detailed information on how this will work you can read more here.
