Paradox Interactive has announced a new expansion coming soon for Cities: Skylines, which is titled “Mass Transit,” and will bring new forms of transportation to the game, allowing players to offer in-game citizens new ways to get across town by land, sea, and air.
With new transit service buildings, mas transit hubs where lines can exchange passengers, new scenarios, new landmarks, and new road types, Mass Transit will provide more seasoned players with more choices and options to customize their cities than ever before.
Mass Transit will feature:
- Sick Transit, Glorious Money: Add a wealth of new transit options to your city, and add wealth to your city’s income! Let your citizens get across town in ferries, blimps, cable cars, and monorails!
- Orderly Hub, Bub: New mass transit hubs can bring all of your services together, letting citizens change rail lines in one building, or hop from the bus onto the ferry, or even find their way through a sprawling monorail-train-metro station.
- Become a “Roads Scholar”: Explore a set of new challenge scenarios focused on solving traffic problems and adding new transit systems. New road types, bridges and canals adds variety to your city, and new ways to solve its challenges. Become an expert in traffic flow, and then use that knowledge to improve your city!
- New Hats for Chirper: (and also new unique buildings, policies and achievements)
As usual, the new expansion will arrive together with a free update to the base game upon release. This free update adds mod-inspired features to traffic management, such as an extended public transport budget, emergency vehicle overtaking and more road features. The patch will also include the ability to name roads.
Cities: Skylines – Mass Transit will release in 2017 for PC, Mac and Linux. For more information on Cities: Skylines, visit http://www.citiesskylines.com/.
