Boxes may seem quaint for PC gaming these days. Retail releases can still bring in new a customer that’s why Frontier Developments is bringing two of its biggest games to old-fashioned stores.

Today Frontier Developments announced that two of its PC gaming hits are receiving physical releases. Sold Out Sales & Marketing Limited is partnering with the developer for the boxed releases and most of PC games sell on digital stores like Steam. But large retailers like Walmart still sell boxed PC games.

Last November Planet Coaster also came out. The theme park test system gives players a chance to plan their own crazy rides and oversee parks. It sold over 400,000 copies in its first month and it the big achievement for them. On May 23 the boxed version is launching out.

Elite said that “Dangerous is a space simulator that came out for PC in 2014”. An Xbox One version was launched in 2015 and a PlayStation 4 version is coming later this year. All three are receiving boxed releases of the game which are also coming out in the present year. Frontier is branding the retail version as a Legendary Edition. It will include the Horizons content additions and give players 1000 Frontier Points (an in-game currency that you can use to buy things like outfits and ships). Elite also said that Dangerous has sold over 1.4 million copies as of January 2016 the last time Frontier revealed sales numbers for the game.

Frontier did not state in the event that anything exceptional would be in the crates other than the games.

David Walsh, chief operating officer of Frontier said that “We want Frontier’s great games to be enjoyed by as many players around the world as possible. We’re therefore delighted to be working with Sold Out on our retail presence for Planet Coaster and Elite Dangerous.”
