PARK BEYOND TO COLLABORATE WITH MOD.IO’S PLATFORM FOR USER GENERATED CONTENT
Bandai Namco Europe and Limbic Entertainment announce they are partnering with mod.io to offer a cross-platform user-generated content (UGC) sharing platform to players for the upcoming Park Beyond. mod.io will make its debut in the game in August 2023.
mod.io is a cross-platform UGC solution powering over 150 games’ User Generated Conten for players on PC and consoles. Whether it be full parks, buildings or any other kind of creations, players of Park Beyond will be able to share them and download creations from others directly in game or through impossify.com.
“Historically, games like Park Beyond have nurtured remarkable creator communities. In collaboration with Bandai Namco Europe and Limbic Entertainment, our goal is to expand the reach of user-generated content to a broader audience, encompassing both PC and console players. We are thrilled to join with Bandai Namco and Limbic Entertainment, as well as their creator community, in our pursuit of making UGC support universally accessible for their players.” said Scott Reismanis, CEO and Co-founder of mod.io.
“Park Beyond’s purpose is to allow players to make their childhood dreams a reality. At Limbic Entertainment we think that dreams are meant to be shared. Our goal is to allow as many people as possible to offer the world their most beautiful memories, it was clear that we wanted a cross-platform UGC solution. Thus, working with mod.io, which has a proven track record on several well-known games, was an obvious choice. We can’t wait to see what our community will create in Park Beyond and share with mod.io.” said Lionel Lovisa, General Studio Manager at Limbic Entertainment.
To ensure perfectly set up services, all mod.io’s features for the game will be implemented in August 2023.
Crazy content will also come from the Park Beyond team with DLCs as part of the Season Pass, as well as free DLCs starting from the release of the game. From this August, players can expect fantastic new theme, 3 new entertainers, prefabs, 50+ scenery items, making their parks even more unique. September will bring two new modules for coaster creation, followed this fall with the introduction of challenge maps for expert park managers to tackle. And of course, the holiday seasons will bring some free content; players can look forward to pirates dropping anchor in their park. In between and after, Park Beyond will welcome more unannounced content for players to let their creativity loose and spend countless hours playing.
Finally, after the Closed Beta Test in May and gaining valuable feedback from players, Park Beyond will run an Open Beta Test from June 7th to June 16th. This will be the last chance to experience Park Beyond before release and get the Golden Omnicar, the Beta participation bonus.
Park Beyond will release on June 16th for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
