Cities: Skylines brings the finest city management to Xbox One

Cities: Skylines is the cult hit city management sensation that brought the shine back into simulation games back in 2015… and now, it’s available on Xbox One.

With players put in charge of a growing city, it is up to you to build streets, homes, public services, civic policies and meet the demands of the many thousands of citizens populating the city, ensuring that they are all well catered for. The Xbox One release of the PC cult hit comes complete with the After Dark expansion, bringing you the option to create a bustling nightlife with the various tourist attractions to help keep the city as alive in the night as it is in the day. Because you see, as the overseer of a city, just because the sun sets, it doesn’t mean you have to stop working.

Multi-tiered simulation components need to be considered, and various challenges to overcome, it is up to you as the mayor of the city to help everything run smoothly. Balancing essential requirements such as education, water, electricity, police, firefighting, healthcare and plenty more, as well as managing your city’s economy will be just a few of the challenges you will be facing. With citizens that react to your every action, will you be able to manage the ever-evolving demands of Cities: Skylines? You’ll only find out by hitting up the Xbox Games Store.

Those interested in taking on the challenge can jump into Cities: Skylines now on Xbox One and PC for the price of £31.99.

Game Description:

Cities: Skylines – Xbox One Edition puts you in charge of a growing city – from the ground-breaking of its first streets to the ever-changing needs of thousands of citizens. Design, build, and manage the city of your dreams, from public services to civic policies, and challenge yourself to grow from a simple town to a bustling metropolitan hub. Cities: Skylines is an award-winning, best-selling management game, now available for the Xbox One with all of its robust city-simulation gameplay and unique charm along for the ride. The Xbox One Edition includes the base game and the popular After Dark expansion, allowing players to plan and design for their cities’ nightlife and tourist attractions. Main Features: Build the city of your dreams: Plan road networks, bus lines and parks. Bring on a smog-filled industrial revolution or create a quiet beach town ideal for tourists powered by renewable energy. Bring education, healthcare and safety to your citizens. Build it your way! Multi-tiered and challenging simulation: Playing as the mayor of your city, you’ll be faced with balancing essential requirements such as education, water electricity, police, firefighting, healthcare and much more, along with your city’s economy. Citizens within your city react fluidly, keeping you on your toes with ever-evolving demands. Extensive local traffic simulation: Managing traffic and the needs of your citizens to work and play will require the use of several interactive transport systems – use careful road planning alongside buses, trains, subways, and much more. Districts and policies: Be more than just another city hall official! Create a car-free downtown area, assign free public transport to your waterfront, or ban pets in suburbia. Designate parts of your city as a district in order to set policy at the local level, and give different parts of town their own personalities. After Dark included: Watch your city become an entirely different place at night: a day-night cycle will have your citizens seeking out places to unwind after work. Add in new policies and zones to create popular hotspots and provide enough taxis and trains to get to and from the clubs!

After 20 years of playing every game I can get my hands on, I can now be found selling my soul for anything Resident Evil, Gears of War, or Gamerscore related... all of which will be mastered after a good cuppa!
  • A bad joke against the pc version and its thousands of mods on steam.

    • Vulcanproject

      Might as well let Xbox gamers play it, Microsoft are basically putting all their titles on PC straight away these days so return the favour a couple years later

    • ThinkingClass

      Something’s better than nothing :-). Fantastic game though, playing it on a big 52″ screen sounds great! Especially (if) when you have a sprawling metropolis to look after.

      Cities is an ultra casual chill game that’s a natural for controller. Mods are great… But in the end it’s just another city game.

      It’ll be great on console.

    Personally I’d much rather play this on my xbox than on PC so I’ve been looking forward to this release… So long as it controls well enough via the controller.

    Hope you have a review up soon so I can decide whether to get it or not. 🙂

    This looks right up my street (pun intended 🙂 )! SO I thin k I’ll grab this at some point soon.
