look at the add-on, and they are now accepting preorders through the
for what they call one of the most in-depth expansions in the
history of the series. Word is this also comes along with a new radio station
and other updates for the base game: "The free update coming alongside
Industries will introduce toll booths (and road tolls, naturally), which will
slow traffic’s roll a bit, but generate extra income for the city. Players will
also get the option to mark zoned buildings as historical, preserving their
style, and the ability to create custom name lists for citizens, districts and
spawned buildings." For those who buy the add on, here's what comes with your
commission as a captain of industry:
Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order today announced the next industrial
update for Cities: Skylines on PC, Mac and Linux. Industries, launching October
23rd will put one of the game’s three zones in the spotlight for the first time.
“With this expansion, players can make more meaningful choices in their cities’
industry by managing their production chains from grain to bread.” said Sandra
Neudinger, Product Manager from Paradox Interactive. “The players have been
asking for an industrial expansion for a while, so we’re excited to finally
offer a full featured approach.”
In one of the most in-depth expansions in Cities: Skylines history, Industry
becomes a larger and more meaningful part of the game with this DLC. Players can
build unique factories and customize their industrial areas with supply chains
for the four different resource types. Well managed industry areas will level up
and become more efficient. Aside from production chains, there is a new city
service for handling mail and the cargo airport eases import and export of
factory goods. There are FIVE new maps, new policies, new city services, new
buildings (including resource extractors, manufacturers, warehouses and unique
factories) and more.
- Make It Happen - Follow your products from harvesting to
processing, storage and production, then transport them to commercial zones
or export to other cities.
- Captain Your Own Industry - Define an area with the industry area
tool and place highly specialized industrial buildings to build and manage
the production chain from raw material extraction up to final end product.
Industry Areas are divided into four types based on the natural resource
they are processing: Farming, Forest, Ore and Oil. These areas can level up
upon reaching productions goals and staffing requirements.
- Build it up, Buttercup - New industrial buildings include
Extractors, Warehouse Facilities, Processing and Auxiliary Buildings,
Industrial Props and Roads. Unique Factories, such as Food, Toy, Furniture,
Car and Electronics produce luxury products, and require a large quantity of
workers, water and electricity as well as input from your industries.
- Ship It - Manage traffic and logistics with industry warehouses
and the use of the new Cargo Services including a cargo airport.
- Go Postal - Boost your citizens’ well-being with mail delivery
and collection services. Post sorting facilities handle mail between outside
connections and the post offices, and new Post Van and Truck vehicles enable
- Wonk Hard - Three new Industry Policies and four City-wide
Policies, including Workers’ Union, Sorting, Tolls, Wi-Fi, Logistics, Work
Safety and Automation.
- Five New Maps - Rich in natural resources, transportation options
and industrial opportunities, these new maps have all the right stuff.
- Four new hats for Chirper!
