Cities: Skylines is an excellent tool for doing basically anything at this point, and intrepid YouTuber Crumbs McGee has used it to create a small diorama of post-apocalyptic action inspired by Fallout 76.
Cities: Skylines is a game that I keep going back to. Even though new and interesting content packs come out for it regularly, I find myself drawn to the scale of the game more than its content. I mean, it's big, and flying through it set to a calm soundtrack is the ultimate soothing experience.
I was happy enough with Cities: Skylines when it was just about building cities, but it's now adding the ability to construct giant theme parks as well, so cool, why not.
City-builder Cities: Skylines has accumulated a healthy number of expansions since its release in 2015 and developer Colossal Order has just added another... duck to the row? Egg to the basket? Basically it's got another one out called Mass Transit that, unsurprisingly, provides players with a bevvy of new transportation options.
Cities Skylines is an amazing city building game, but destroying them? That's a SimCity thing. Or it was, until the announcement of Skylines' Natural Disasters expansion.
As I've said, Cities Skylines has its flaws as a city management game, but as a toy to build stuff with, it's in a league of its own. As we see here, with inthoughtwelive's near-perfect recreation of Seattle.
This time last year, I reviewed Cities: Skylines. I played it, I loved it, I tried some early mods and then I moved onto other games, never to return (or so I thought). Now, with a big expansion out today, I've decided to head back to Corpsetown and see how everything has been shaping up in my absence.
Video: The next expansion for Paradox's city builder, Cities: Skylines, is called Snowfall. Announced today, the add-on will introduce a weather system and a temperature mechanic to the game, along with a couple new public transportation options, like trams. Snowfall will be out on PC "later this year".
February saw the first of the year's major AAA titles land -- or at least the ones that were delayed from 2014 -- but March was when gamers truly got to get excited. Sony got some more exclusives. Indie darlings dropped their long-awaited sequels. Some long-awaited Kickstarter projects were finally released to the public, and there was even a new Mario Party to crow about.
