Cities: Skylines pulls players out of the public transportation offices and grants them the power of true urban planning and development.

Inhabit a world where you define the rules.

Cities: Skylines invites you to create the city of your dreams in a sprawling landscape dominated by cloud hugging structures and jaw dropping architectural marvels.

Create the cities of their dreams in Cities: Skylines, a massive city simulator from the creators of the Cities in Motion series. Vast backdrops and maps provide players with countless ways to improve and expand their cities, building from humble beginnings up to beautiful, cloud-hugging structures and unique architectural marvels. 

You’re only limited by your imagination, so take control and reach for the sky!

The latest DLC, titled the “Content Creator Pack,” gives mayor-players a new set of stylish structures, service buildings, and neighborhood styles to add to their towns, all created by two talented community modelers from the Cities: Skylines fan base. The Content Creator Pack will be available on both Xbox One and PS4 for a suggested retail price of $9.99, and is also included as part of the Season Pass for both platforms.

The pack includes a series of new buildings from artist and modeler Matt “Shroomblaze” Crux, styled in the classic Art Deco fashion – with 6 spawnable residential buildings, 6 spawnable commercial buildings, and 3 unique buildings to give players’ towns a bold 1920s flair. It also adds 15 creations from community creator Mauro “GCVos” Vos with technological inspiration, including 10 new unique buildings and 5 advanced city service options, bringing in-game towns to the next level of archi-technology.

Cities: Skylines on both Xbox One and PlayStation®4 are also receiving a free content update for all players: “Match Day,” a new feature which allows mayors to add sports stadiums to their towns. While cities will benefit from the revenue generated by their home teams, it will take careful planning to handle traffic on game day! “Match Day” is available now in Cities: Skylines – Xbox One Edition and will be added alongside the Content Creator Pack to Cities: Skylines – PlayStation®4 Edition next week.
