Cities: Skylines main features

Players can build the city of their dreams with street networks, bus routes and parks. They start a smog-ridden industrial revolution or create a quiet seaside town powered by renewable energy, ideal for tourists. For their citizens, they need education, health care and security. Everything according to the preferences of the respective player.

Multi-level and challenging simulation

As the mayor, players face balanced basic needs such as education, water, electricity, police, fire department, health care system and more while building their own city's economic system. Townsfolk react quickly, keeping players busy with ever-evolving demands. 

Extensive public transport simulation

Managing traffic and citizens' needs for work and leisure requires the use of multiple interactive transportation systems - careful street planning alongside buses, trains, subways, and more.

Districts and Policies

Players need to be more than just another town hall official! You can create a car-free inner city, set up public transport to the waterfront or ban pets in suburbs. Parts of the city can be designated as districts to enforce rules at the local level. The different parts of the city are each given their own personality by the players.

Includes After Dark expansion

The city becomes a completely different place at night: a day-night cycle makes citizens look for places to relax after work. With new policies and zones, it creates popular hotspots and provides taxis and trains to make it easier for citizens to get to clubs and back home.

In addition to being used on the latest console generations, players will also get access to the regular PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.
