Cities: Skylines is an upcoming city-building game currently in development by Colossal Order and to be published and released by Paradox Interactive on March 10, 2015 for Windows, OS X and Linux.
Cities: Skylines focuses on city-building simulation through urban planning. Players control zoning, road placement, taxation, public services, and public transportation of an area. Gameplay is open-ended, touted as “endless sandbox gameplay across massive maps.” Player-determined civic policies can affect the development of the entire city or individual districts thereof.
Roads can be built straight or free-form and the grid used for zoning adapts to road shape; cities need not follow a grid plan. Roads of varying widths (up to major highways) accommodate different traffic volumes, and variant road types (for example roads lined with trees) offer reduced noise pollution or increased property values in the surrounding area at an increased cost to the player.
