Cities: Skylines on Xbox One gives you the chance to build the city of your dream, leaving you to deal with road planning, keeping your citizens needs in hand, and driving tourism to ensure the cash continues to roll in. You may well have thought that with numerous DLC packs having arrived for action over the months since release, Cities: Skylines couldn’t expand any further. But you’d be wrong as today we see two new DLC packs drop in. They aren’t cheap though!
Available to purchase and then add to your standard Cities: Skylines base game are the Natural Disasters and Radio Station Pack add-ons.
Now, you’ll need the base Cities game available in order for you to even start considering these additions – and those who plumped previously for the Premium Edition of the game will already find them included – but should you be looking to listen in to two new radio stations (that of Relaxation Station or Rock City Radio), for one price, or just want to cause some chaos and introduce a catastrophe or two into proceedings, then now is your chance.
The Radio Station Pack is the cheapest of the two options, but even then a massive £6.39 for a few tunes to accompany your experience seems like a huge ask for many players to bother with. Especially as it doesn’t deliver anything new in terms of ‘gameplay’.
The Natural Disasters Pack however is slightly different. Yes, the £11.99 price being asked is still a fair old whack to pay out – especially when you consider the cost of the base game and the other DLC add-ons – but at least it gives the opportunity to mix things up a bit, delivering the likes of Meteor Strikes, forest fires, earthquakes and more. Hey, why on earth we would want to see our beautiful cities begin to fail is beyond me, but at least it delivers on the excitement front.
The Microsoft Store will, as always, be able to bring the latest content packs in to your game. Head on over there by using the links below and enjoy what they can offer… as long as you can stomach those prices.
