Paradox Interactive has announced that its city building and management sim, Cities: Skylines , will be receiving its fourth expansion pack. The premium DLC, titled Mass Transit , promises to bring a variety of new transportation modes to the game. Check out the announcement trailer for Cities: Skylines: Mass Transit below:
“Commuters can now get around on the water, up high mountain peaks, and even through the sky thanks to the addition of ferries, monorails, cable cars, and blimps to the game. Along with new transit service buildings, mass transit hubs where lines can exchange passengers, new scenarios, new landmarks, and new road types, urban planners now have more options than ever to add unique style and personality to their growing cities,” Paradox Interactive stated in their announcement.
- Sick Transit, Glorious Money: Add a wealth of new transit options to your city, and add wealth to your city’s income! Let your citizens get across town in ferries, blimps, cable cars, and monorails!
- Orderly Hub, Bub: New mass transit hubs can bring all of your services together, letting citizens change rail lines in one building, or hop from the bus onto the ferry, or even find their way through a sprawling monorail-train metro station.
- Become a Roads Scholar: Explore a set of new challenge scenarios focused on solving traffic problems and adding new transit systems. New road types, bridges and canals adds variety to your city, and new ways to solve its challenges. Become an expert in traffic flow, and then use that knowledge to improve your city!
- New Hats for Chirper: NEW. HATS. FOR CHIRPER. (And also new unique buildings, policies and achievements. But HATS!)
As with Cities: Skylines ’ previous expansions, a free update will also be included. The free update is expected to include a few of the modding community’s best ideas, including a more robust public transportation budget, emergency vehicles taking priority on the road over cars and the ability to name roads.
While there is no release date yet for Mass Transit , the Cities: Skylines team has indicated that the expansion will be released later this year.
