Cities: Skylines - Mass Transit Released

Paradox Interactive announces the launch of the Mass Transit expansion for Cities: Skylines, adding new ways to get around town to the Windows, Linux, and macOS urban planning game. You can get a look at this in action in this release trailer and pick up a copy through the Paradox Store. Here's word on the release:

Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order are careening off the rails and taking to the skies with Cities: Skylines - Mass Transit, available today for a non-massive transaction of $12.99. Planes, trains, automobiles and more are featured in this expansion for the critically acclaimed city-builder, including new public transportation options such as blimps, monorails, cable-cars, blimps, ferries, and (in case you missed it) blimps. Mass Transit is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs here - click it to write your own ticket: https://www.paradoxplaza.com/cities-skylines-mass-transit

Design public transport as youíve never seen it before, top-down and under your control. Whether your goal is efficiency or mayhem, Cities: Skylines - Mass Transit lets you control the commute of your citizens over, on, or underground. Manage the madness with more moving machines than most metropolises can master.

The people of your city have got places to go and youíve got ways to get them there with exciting new features such as:

  • Allís Fare: Add ferries, blimps, cable cars, and monorails to move your citizens around town, and move valuable fare dollars into your bank account.
  • A Hubba Burnin' Love: New transit hubs help handle the hubbub of public transport by connecting your transit together, letting citizens hop from line to line as they puzzle their way through the city.
  • Thatís my Traffic Jam: Conduct the masses across bridges and canals in your great orchestra of a morning commute, and dream up new ways to go with the traffic flow.
  • Chirper Capita: We liked it so we put a new lid on it for Chirper.

Rockstar Cities: Skylines players can also take the mute out of their commute with the Rock City music pack, releasing alongside the expansion for $3.99. The music pack adds a new DJ and 16 songs with everything from grunge and classic rock to sleaze rock and metal to help you rock the suburbs.

Someone play this and tell us how it is. Looks good.

Depends.. you like city builders where nothing changes once you build the basic supplies this one is great, but all these DLC's add no real challenge, only more "waiting" for income to roll in at the start, and income isn't really any issue later on anyway...

I found it great fun, until there is a point where you realize all the little things that piss you off, like how traffic AI doesn't know how a highway ramp works, or the way AI behaves with multiple lanes.. or how you can't (without mods) assign on a 4 lane road 3 lanes for a left turn and 1 lane for a straight lane. Etc...

And this DLC, well, if you like mass transit you will like the HUB, as it allows joining rail and subway (the only viable mass transit in this game) together. That this is a 13Ä feature is pretty lame imo, it should have been base functionality for railway and subway (which are base game transit), but alas....

Salient points and a good review. Thanks!
