Atari announced that its highly anticipated RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 game will include new photo features and a full version of Microsoft Photo Story, which will enable players to tell the story of their park experience and share it with their friends.

In RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 players can create and share elements of their parks and roller coasters found in previous versions of the series like never before. In addition, owners of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 will be able to create customised park guests, groups of their friends, fireworks shows and guest photos, as well as CoasterCam and park videos directly from the game. New scenery items called Photo Spots can be placed in a park and enable park guests, Peeps, to pose for the camera. In addition, cameras can be placed directly on roller coasters to take shots of guests as they ride. These in-game photos are then easily transferred to the Photo Story software included on the RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 disk so that players can create a digital slideshow of their experience by adding music, narration and pan and zoom effects which can then be shared with friends and family via email, CD, VCD or posted online.

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 features stunning 3D graphics, a CoasterCam that lets players ride the rides, a Fireworks MixMaster to create fireworks displays, dozens of new rides and themed attractions, a Peep Designer, VIPeeps, a Sandbox Mode, customisable music, day and night cycles, and the ability to save photos and movies of your park.

Photo Story lets users create fun and exciting digital slide shows from their pictures. With Photo Story, users can add motion effects, music, and narration, and save their experience as a digital slideshow that can be viewed with Windows Media Player 7 or higher, or other programs that support playback of Windows Media Video 9 files (WMV). Because Photo Story uses advanced Window Media compression, Photo Stories are small enough to easily share via e-mail and post to the web.

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is being developed by Frontier Developments, Ltd. and has a European in-store date of 5 November. Customers who pre-order the game from participating retailers will receive a Coaster Pack that contains three professionally designed coasters that were created exclusively for RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 and are only available through the pre-sell program. Additional details and the demo of the game can be found in the Megagames RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Demo.
