About Cities: Skylines

About this game

Developed by Colossal Order Ltd. and published by Paradox Interactive.

Ready to build the bustling metropolis of your dreams? Whether you're a newcomer to the genre or a veteran at it, Cities: Skylines is accessible to all!

Ruling Isn't Easy

Tax the people, balance essentials like healthcare and the economy, and carefully build a metropolis! You have many responsibilities as the creator that you'll have to juggle.

But It's Up to You!

Everything is in your hands! Do you want a busy city or quiet suburbs? Do you want to ban pets? What type of education system do you want? It's all up to you! Everything is in your hands.

Challenging

Being the mayor isn't all fun and games, which means you will really have to make some tough calls, and the citizens living within your command will have opinions about it. Their reactions will be fluid, meaning that they will react in a multitude of authentic scenarios.

Traffic Jams!

To make the experience as genuine as possible, Cities: Skylines offers a fleshed-out traffic system! You'll have to problem-solve as the metropolis becomes bigger!

Day and Night!

The time of the day (or night!) has an impact on your gameplay! You'll have to take charge of some special situations, such as traffic or zoned areas not working at full efficiency during certain times!

Mod, Mod, Mod!

Cities: Skylines has extensive modding support, meaning you can build or improve existing maps and structures and important them! Share and download creations with other members of the community easily through the Steam Workshop.

Steam Deck

Take your growing metropolis everywhere with you, as Cities: Skylines is playable on the Steam Deck!

No other city building game even comes close to this masterpiece. The DLC are amazing but not necessary, the game alone is great already.

Quality successor to the SimCity franchise. Highly customisable. Smooth. Only downside is if you lack creativity (as I do) you might end up with all your cities following the same pattern.

Cities: Skylines Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
What makes Cities: Skylines so unique is the consequences of your actions provides challenges that are both hard and rib-tickling. One wrong move and the city you've spent hours on could be underwater in the sewage of its people. It makes city building gripping and extremely addictive.
