STOCKHOLM – Feb. 28, 2017 — Paradox
Interactive, a publisher of games that play fare, today announced a
new expansion coming soon for
Cities: Skylines, the award-winning city-builder from
Colossal Order. The expansion, titled
“Mass Transit,” will bring new forms of
transportation to the game, allowing mayor-players to offer in-game
citizens new ways to get across town by land, sea, and air. With
new transit service buildings, mass transit hubs where lines can
exchange passengers, new scenarios, new landmarks, and new road
types, Mass Transit will provide veteran players of
Cities: Skylines with more choices and options to
personalize their cities than ever before.
This link will provide a massive transition from the
announcement to a new trailer.
Per usual, the new expansion will arrive together with a free
update to the base game upon release. This free update adds
mod-inspired features to traffic management, such as an extended
public transport budget, emergency vehicle overtaking and more road
features. The patch will also include the much-requested ability to
Sick Transit, Glorious Money: Add a wealth of new
transit options to your city, and add wealth to your city’s

all of your services together, letting citizens change rail lines
in one building, or hop from the bus onto the ferry, or even find
their way through a sprawling monorail-train-metro station.
Become a Roads Scholar: Explore a set of new
challenge scenarios focused on solving traffic problems and adding
new transit systems. New road types, bridges and canals adds
variety to your city, and new ways to solve its challenges.
Become an expert in traffic flow, and then use that knowledge
to improve your city!
New Hats for Chirper: NEW. HATS. FOR CHIRPER.
(and also new unique buildings, policies and achievements.
