In that time, Paradox and Colossal Order have released over 1,000 new features. Such as leisure and tourism, landscaping, football, radio stations and concerts. Which also includes helicopters, ferries, monorails, cable cars, blimps and so much more.
And yet, players in the Cities community are the TRUE big content producers. Supplying more than 144,000 mods to-date. All sorts of user-generated maps. A host scenarios and assets are available in the Steam Workshop, for free!
Over the past three years, Cities: Skylines fans have definitively proven they can survive Natural Disasters, heavy Snowfall and self-inflicted anarchy of all sorts, but the question looms… can they survive Mars?
To celebrate its third birthday and five million milestone. Cities: Skylines players are getting a new unique Rocket City building called Xchirp Launcher. Also an astronaut Chirper and a new free radio station. Plus an official Mars Radio. Tune into Mars beginning this now. Jam to space musical electro songs. Including Perfect Wave, Mission Stardust, The Return of Sputnik, Moon Zero Two and Aiming for Jupiter.
Steam Surviving Mars deal:
As Paradox gears up for the release of Surviving Mars (next week!) on March 15th. All Cities owners will also get 10 percent off pre-orders on Steam. Which is a decent deal, since we will have a day-one Linux release.
