The console editions of Cities: Skylines have been receiving a steady stream of expansions since their debut early last year, with Natural Disasters landing only a few months ago. Today, Paradox Interactive announced that the city builder's Mass Transit expansion is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, as well as on the game's Windows 10 edition.
The main focus of the expansion is adding on various new commuting methods that players can build in their cities, such as cable cars, ferries, monorails, and even blimps. There are also handy transit buildings that serve as hubs to different commuting options, which citizens can use to transfer between services.
Here's the list of key features of the expansion that Paradox provided:
- 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: 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 scenarios focused on solving traffic problems and adding new transit systems. New road types, bridges and canals add 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!)
Base game owners aren't left out, however, as a free update has also landed today bringing improvements to various transit-centric content, which Paradox detailed as follows:
Updates for naming roads, road adjustments and route info view with transit types, visual aids for road building, new intersection settings (yield rules, traffic lights and priority roads), toggling between local and intercity train stations, public transport info view additions, improved emergency vehicle logic, citizen modding and more!
Cities: Skylines Mass Transit is now available for purchase on the Xbox One family of consoles, Windows 10 PCs, and PlayStation 4 with a $12.99 price tag. Note that the expansion is included in the console edition season pass.
