Cities Skylines: Snowfall finally has a release date: February 18th.
This newest expansion to the Cities universe is adding a chilling amount of content… Sorry.
With this latest Cities DLC, players will now have to contend with biting winds and cumbersome snowdrifts. No longer can a burgeoning city-planner foresee possible traffic jams, and unreasonable commute times, without taking on the unknown element of frozen water to destroy your perfectly planned roads.
Paradox Interactive has stated, ” Cities: Skylines, the award-winning city-building game from Colossal Order, will receive a flurry of new weather-related features in the ‘Snowfall’ expansion. The new content will release this month on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs, and will be available from digital retailers everywhere for $12.99″. Also, Paradox and Colossal Order are in the business of caring so much about their games and community that they release a plethora of free patch updates with each DLC; e.g. dynamic weather, chirpy updates, and aesthetic changes.
It’s difficult to gauge how exactly this will change the core mechanics of the city-building game — with a majority of the new mechanics focusing on infrastructure and maintenance of your roads. Most of the new features in Cities: Skylines will add subtle mechanical changes to an already complex game. I can’t wait.
