Cities Skylines Going Green

Posted on 26 Sep 2017

Cities: Skylines is a behemoth of a game, larger than the sprawling cities it allows you to create even. But until now, the cities weren’t too bothered with going green, what with all those concerts and terrible management decisions we make every single time. Tip: 500% tax and pennies per hour for your emergency services is not the right way to do it.

Green Cities is the latest expansion from Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order. It brings a whopping 350 new assets to the game. There’ll be a huge selection of new visual options, eco friendly buildings, organic stores, parks, and services. You’ll be able to go completely green or dump toxic waste all over a nice suburban park, like we do. If you don’t like toxic waste dumping though, there’ll be new options for zones, for example banning combustion engines in the inner city and waste filtering requirements.

There’ll also be a free content update that adds electric cars, road modding, noise pollution overhaul, and more beautification options. You don’t have to put up with those dirty, polluting citizens and their cities for much longer; Green Cities is launching 19 October 2017 and will cost $12.99.

Also topping the charts today, the new Green Cities trailer doubles as the latest hit from in-game folk pop legend, Lily la Roux, fresh out of Cities: Skylines Concerts:

Cities: Skylines – Green Citieswill add 350 new assets to the core game, including a massive selection of new visual options, complete with eco-friendly buildings, organic stores, new parks and services, all at the mayor’s disposal to dispose of pollution once and for all. Players can go completely green as the urban population grows, and create more diversified cities with new specialized options for all zones, such as a combustion engine ban in the inner city or waste filtering requirements for industrial buildings. New in-game services, scenarios and policy options will arrive alongside revisions to noise and ground pollution.

The Green Cities expansion will be accompanied by a free content update, which will supplement the base game with electric cars, road modding, a noise pollution overhaul, and more beautification options in the form of parks and trees, among other things.
