Cities: Skylines for PC, PS4 and XONE is an economic strategy game developed by Colossal Order, the creators of Cities in Motion and Cities in Motion 2: The Modern Days. This time around, the developers decided not to limit themselves solely to urban transport and challenged such hits as SimCity.
The main goal in Cities: Skylines for PC, PS4 and XONE is to build a city of your dreams, although you also have to take care of its citizens’ welfare and keep the money flowing to ensure future investments, and so on. The game also offers support for mods.
In the game, we build metropolises on maps that have a size of 36 square kilometers (it is possible to lessen that value). To fill the entire area with buildings and roads, we have to make sure that the city administration works well and the tax money flows into the treasury. It is also essential to remember that city districts are inhabited by various social classes with different financial capabilities. Luckily, the developers implemented tools for precise taxing as well as creating policies for all districts. Apart from that, it is our responsibility to establish urban transport that enables virtual people to move around the metropolis. Trading with other cities is also an important aspect of the gameplay.
