Colossal Order has announced the release date for their new Mass Transit DLC for Cities: Skylinesand no delays!

As stated when we had Mass Transit announced, it comes with a lovely set of fancy new mass transit vehicles, and new stations and hubs for you to make a useful mass transit system. The new video above shows off the new construction, and also setting up of the routes for your public transport, though we don’t get a detailed look, we can see how they will operate.

Also mentioned in the little “Road to Riches” as stated in the official press release below, we have “The Traffic Must Flow” as the name for the new scenarios that will teach and test you on your visions for transport, which you can easily transfer to any new or existing cities you may have.

All together, we will have; new road types, bridges and canals (watch out for the manure), as well as a path for the new Cable Car, oh, and don’t forget to allow clearance for your new Blimps (though I still say they are more like Zeppelins…) to fly around in.

Check out the latest Cities: Skylines DLC offering when it drops on May 18th, for just $12.99 USD.

Official Press Release

STOCKHOLM, April 13th, 2017 – Paradox Interactive, a publisher that sometimes goes off-track, and genuine bona-fide electrified six-car developer Colossal Order today announced that “Mass Transit”, the next expansion for Cities: Skylines, will be available on May 18th, for $12.99. Cities: Skylines – Mass Transit brings a blimp-load of new features to to the critically acclaimed city-builder, including new public transportation options such as monorails, cable-cars, ferries, and most majestic of all, blimps!

The expansion also includes new mass transit hubs, which allow passengers to easily switch between different public transportation options, showcased for the first time in the new trailer.

Cities: Skylines – Mass Transit will feature:

  • The Road to Riches:  Ferries, blimps, cable cars, and monorails help move your citizens around town, and get their money into your city’s coffers.
  • Home is where the Hub is: The transit hub connects all your transit together, letting citizens ail lines in one building, or hop from the bus onto the ferry, or even find their way through a sprawling monorail-train-metro station.
  • The Traffic Must Flow: New scenarios will test your traffic management skills and transit system vision.  New road types, bridges and canals adds  variety to your city, and new ways to solve its challenges.  Become an expert in traffic flow, and then use that knowledge to improve your city!
