Cities: Skylines has sold a total of 5 million copies for PC, Linux and Mac over the course of these three years.

Much of the success can be attributed to the consistant support from the team, whereby the developer launched over 1,000 additional features for the game, a number dwarfed by the 144,000 mods players have contributed. In celebration of the achievement, Colossal Order has stated that it will be releasing a some ‘Surviving Mars’ themed content in the shape of buildings and a radio station. Cities: Skylines players will also be able to expect a 10% discount when preordering Paradox Interactive’s upcoming title.
