the base game:
Today Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order announced
that Cities: Skylines will be getting a playful new expansion, Parklife on May
24, 2018. Parklife is a lively new add-on for the PC version of Paradox
Interactive and Colossal Orderís hit city-builder. The expansion will make your
city more vibrant than ever with new amusement parks and zoos; nature reserves
and city parks, giving new life to your empty land with custom green spaces.
Parklife adds new ways to play with everything from roller coasters and
campsites to flower beds, fountains and flamingos. Thereís also a new park area
tool, five new maps, a ton of new assets and level-up features that increase
your parkís property values in play.
More leisurely features:
Parks and Recreation: Use the new park area
tool to create park districts wherever there is empty land, and new city
services like Park Maintenance, which boosts happiness and effectiveness,
and helps level up parks.
Brick by Brick: Customize your city with
new buildings and assets, including a new sightseeing bus line, new service
buildings, fresh attractions like amusement parks, nature reserves, city
parks and zoos. Thereís also a regal new monument, the Castle of Lord
Freeway Free for All: For the first time in
Cities: Skylines, you can place buildings next to paths in the park
districts (not just next to roads). Props can be placed anywhere inside park
Recesses Between Buildings: Transform those
empty spaces between your buildings into vibrant parks and gardens.
Itís a Walk in the Park: Customize routes
and set ticket prices for new walking and sightseeing tours, among other
Policies, Please: Take on three new city
policies and eight new park policies to deal with recreational hazards like
Fireworks and Animal Ethics.
More than that, Cities is adding a new radio station: Country Road Radio. The
radio host is pure Dixieland Delight, spinning six instrumental tracks and ten
songs with original vocals covering Appalachian Folk, Bluegrass/Honky Tonk,
Nashville Modern Country and Unplugged country.
In addition to the paid expansion, Cities: Skylines will also get a free PC
update, as usual, including a new tourism panel, trees that reduce noise
pollution, a camera mode upgrade, new tourist models, and new modding features,
including submeshmodding and an improved camera system so users can control the
camera with scripts.
