For a little over a month now, more than a million people have been creating bustling metropolises, sleepy villages, and concrete paradises in Colossal Order’s Cities: Skylines. The team has stamped its authority all over the city-builder genre, but it’s plans don’t end here, with a substantial update to Cities: Skylines due within the coming month.
We’ve already had all the usual bug fixes and tweaks, so this update is set to focus on new content to get our mitts on, including the addition of tunnels to take the transport infrastructure of your city to the next level. Also coming is European buildings, which should add a touch of Italian flair to sleepy suburban neighborhoods.
“The next planned update for Cities: Skylines will be the most substantial to date, adding new features, gameplay tweaks, improvements and more fun stuff! Many of you know it as the “tunnels and wall-to-wall buildings update” that will eventually be added to the game for free”, wrote Colossal Order.
Wall to wall buildings will mean the inclusion of structures like terraced houses, and giant buildings in business districts housing multiple firms rather than each occupying a separate lot.
“As the update is a lot bigger than what we’ve previously released it’s also going to be in development and QA for a longer time – meaning there’s going to be at least a month before it’s ready to be launched.”
The full feature list is currently under wraps, but we should hopefully learn a lot more about Cities: Skylines first major content update before it drops next month.
Fellow city-builders, are you still up into the wee hours creating your sprawling cities? What would you like to see improved or added to Cities: Skylines?
