Cities Skylines developers seemingly aren’t done with the game. After becoming the go-to modern city builder game to fill the void left by the likes of SimCity, the title grew bigger over the years. Part of the reason for its success goes to the various DLCs, and an active modding community.
To keep the community happy and active with their creative juices, Colossal Order announced another new DLC. Called Plazas and Promenades, the new pedestrian-themed expansion allow players to create their dream on-foot experience. The expansion additionally adds different district options along with city service buildings.
Some of the key features of the upcoming expansions are:
- Pedestrian Streets: let your citizens walk freely on pedestrian-only streets. Put them in a city like any other road and create new green city centres free of most vehicles and pollution.
- Pedestrian Zones and New Policies: activate three zone-specific policies for a city, including Slow Driving: all roads in the pedestrian zone, except highways, get a speed limit of 20 miles/hour. Sugar Ban: increases the average lifespan of citizens in the pedestrian zone but decreases their happiness. Street Music: increase in joy and noise pollution in pedestrian commercial zones.
- District Specialization: the game will get three new district specializations: offices, high-density residential areas, and high-density commercial zones. Setting one on a district affects all zoned squares in that district that will spawn buildings with a different visual appearance and a gameplay effect. Each of them features 24 new modern wall-to-wall structures.
- City Service Buildings: service buildings are important, but how about awesome-looking service buildings? Connect them to pedestrian zones by matching their visual style and provide services that contribute to good happiness values.
The upcoming expansion will cost $ 14.99 on PC, Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The developers will share the release date for the expansion at a later date.
