Cities: Skylines is a modern take on the classic city simulation. The game introduces new game play elements to realize the thrill and hardships of creating and maintaining a real city whilst expanding on some well-established tropes of the city building experience.

From the makers of the Cities in Motion franchise, the game boasts a fully realized transport system. It also includes the ability to mod the game to suit your play style as a fine counter balance to the layered and challenging simulation. You’re only limited by your imagination, so take control and reach for the sky!

Main features:

  • Multi-tiered and challenging simulation: Constructing your city from the ground up is easy to learn, but hard to master. Playing as the mayor of your city you’ll be faced with balancing essential requirements such as education, water electricity, police, fire fighting, healthcare and much more along with your citys real economy system. Citizens within your city react fluidly, with gravitas and with an air of authenticity to a multitude of game play scenarios.
  • Extensive local traffic simulation: Colossal Orders extensive experience developing the Cities in Motion series is fully utilized in a fully fleshed out and well-crafted transport systems.
  • Districts and Policies: Be more than just an administrator from city hall. Designating parts of your city as a district results in the application of policies which results in you rising to the status of Mayor for your own city.
  • Extensive modding support: Build or improve on existing maps and structures. You can then import them into the game, share them as well as download the creations of other city builders on the Steam workshop & modDB

With Natural Disasters now available for Cities: Skylines players worldwide, Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order want to take a moment to remind the world that disasters aren’t just about destruction -- there’s a lot to be done when it comes to rebuilding, too. Beginning December 15th - Paradox is coordinating a 48hour stream with the proceeds going to worldwide disaster relief charities.

Disasters in reality aren’t fun for those involved: while we have the luxury of taking our time to point and click to rebuild our virtual communities, rebuilding the real world involves a lot of hard work and financial and emotional support.

To that end, we are challenging some of the most talented city-builders we know to help us do some rebuilding in the real world, with prizes for their communities and donations to disaster relief organizations worldwide. For those that want to join in, our Twitch streaming schedule is as follows (all times are in PST) we look forward to seeing you there:

Everthing about this city builder functions perfectly as you'd expect and more. For instance, one thing speaks to how much thought has and may continue to be put into this game: the ability to close off a body of water with a dam, build pumps in it, and drain it. A short while after draining the body of water, grass soon grows on what was once dirt and you can plop down more city. You can even put sewage pumps along that area beforehand, remove the water pumps before turning them on, and flood your…
