Best Expansion

This generation has seen a seismic shift from traditional expansion packs to bite-sized downloadable content. Seldom does a game get released now without a flurry of additional content following swiftly behind, and it’s become harder than ever to know which bits will be worth buying. Fortunately there are still titles that manage to stand out from the crowd, with huge fully fledged expansions that almost feel like new titles in their own right. These are the titles where you just can’t get enough, taking the dynamics of a beloved title and expanding on it in new and compelling ways.

Cities: Skylines - After Dark
While After Dark doesn’t do a great deal to change how you go about managing your urban sprawls in Cities: Skylines, it does add some significant visual spectacle and variety. The addition of a day/night cycle helps for rejigging your city and easing track flow, but it’s the fresh new features like Leisure and Tourist specialisations that can really help make a city feel your own.

The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna
Expanding on the original in all the right ways, Road to Gehenna asks ever more complex questions of the player - both philosophically and in a deeper understanding of its environmental puzzle design. While essentially Road to Gehenna is more of the same, it’s extra Talos Principle for those who didn’t find their grey matter quite tested enough in the original.
