What’s that you say? You don’t have enough expansions for Cities: Skylines? Don’t worry, here’s another.
On October 23rd, Cities: Skylines will be receiving a new DLC expansion called Industries, which – you guessed it – allows players to take a more in-depth approach to how they manage industrial areas in their cities.
According to the press release, Industries’ new features include specialised buildings and the ability to manage the production chain “from raw material extraction up to final end product”. You can also “manage traffic and logistics with industry warehouses and the use of the new cargo services,” such as a cargo airport.
There’s also a mail delivery system, five new maps and a bunch of new city policies, including “Workers’ Union, Sorting, Tolls, Wi-Fi, Logistics, Work Safety and Automation”. Sounds like a riot.
If you want to read the full list of features or pre-order the expansion, head on over to the official website. Cities: Skylines Industries comes in at a reasonable £10.99 – although for another £3, you can also pre-order some 80s synth tunes with the new Synthetic Dawn Radio.
There’s good news, too, for those who don’t feel like shelling out. Alongside the expansion, Cities: Skylines will also be receiving a free update. You’ll be able to tax your citizens with toll roads, which slow down traffic but absolutely help in saving up for shiny new parks. Players can also mark certain buildings as historical if they want to keep their style. I’m looking forward to preserving my local 7/11 for prosperity.
