'Mini Motorways' Surpasses 4 Million Players, The Endless & Expert Update Will Add Two New Game Modes Next Week

Have you ever been stuck in traffic and wished you could do something to fix it? In Mini Motorways, the city's traffic problems are in your hands.

From the makers of Mini Metro, Mini Motorways is a game about drawing the roads that drive a growing city. Build a road network, one road at a time, to create a bustling metropolis. Redesign your city to keep the traffic flowing, and carefully manage upgrades to meet the changing demands. Mini Motorways’ relaxing experience gradually ramps up in difficulty as planners remove roadblocks to keep the traffic flowing smoothly.

Explore stunning maps based on iconic cities such as Rio de Janeiro, Munich, and Tokyo. Draw the roads that drive the city, building a traffic network that adapts to ever-changing procedurally generated maps to create bustling metropolises. Choose from upgrades like motorways, traffic lights, roundabouts, and tunnels to meet the demands of your expanding road network and connect homes to destinations so everyone can get where they need to go.

Compete in daily and weekly challenges with special conditions such as Mini Notorways, where no motorway upgrades are granted, High Density, in which buildings can pop up in already crowded neighborhoods for extra traffic complications, and others adding a fresh change of tires to the dynamically growing cities of the world.

How long can you keep the cities of the world moving?

Mini Motorways, wihch has now reached more than four and a half million players, opens new roadways with The Endless & Expert Update – its biggest update so far. Expand the spectrum of ways to play from calming to challenging with two new game modes, Endless Mode and Expert Mode respectively, across Apple Arcade, Nintendo Switch, as well as PC/Mac (Steam) on Nov. 3, 2022.

Transform 15 iconic cities like Tokyo, Lisbon, and Los Angeles into a canvas of artistic roadwork and traffic efficiency in Endless Mode, the most requested community feature to date. Start a new city in Endless Mode or choose to continue after a Game Over for a chance to build the metropolis of your dreams. Play at your own speed without the threat of the city ending before you want it to, earning upgrades along the way by achieving milestones and building an efficient city.

Prepare to tackle new obstacles and a chance to beat the best in Expert Mode, inspired by Mini Metro’s Extreme Mode. Learn what commitment really means as road tiles and upgrades quickly become a permanent part of the city. Play strategically with access to the full suite of upgrades at the end of each week, but make sure to plan ahead as an upgrade cannot be selected twice in a row. Climb a brand new Expert Mode leaderboard on each map and compete against the highest tier of civil engineers for the top spot.

More quality-of-life improvements requested by the community will accompany The Endless & Expert Update. Discover a new multi-level manual zoom option to choose your preferred way to draw roads across the city on every platform, and make well-informed decisions with the ability to view your current city layout before choosing an upgrade at the end of each in-game week.

Since launch, Mini Motorways has seen nine updates with a grand total of 15 maps and many new features and upgrades. The community of Mini Motorways continues to encourage one another and foster connection all around the world, one road at a time, so to celebrate them, here are some updated accomplishments the game and our community have achieved together in their road-building endeavors:
