Cities Skylines developer Colossal Order has announced the final roadmap of DLC coming this year to the game. This comes after the recent and long-awaited announcement for Cities Skylines 2 which is currently planned for release later this year. The final additions to Cities Skylines brings updates to some prior packs like After Dark, Snowfall and Mass Transit, and brings new DLC content. Some of the new content coming this year includes Shopping Malls, Sports Venues and Africa in Miniature. There are also three content creator packs coming, Brooklyn and Queens, Industrial Evolution and Railroads of Japan, and along with them new radio packs. The announcement today didn’t come to much fanfare, Paradox Interactive— the publisher for Cities Skylines and other hit titles— held their showcase earlier this month which saw the reveal for Cities Skylines 2. That announcement has given Cities Skylines its final farewell already as players look ahead to what’s next in city building.
Cities: Skylines gets a proper farewell starting with a free update, Hubs & Transport. It’s packed full of public transport hubs, vehicles, and roads for the base game, After Dark, Snowfall, Natural Disasters, and Mass Transit!

It’s truly an end of an era for the hit city sim game, launching back in 2015, the game saw commercial success for giving players everything they wanted in a city-building sim. Cities’ release came 2 years after the historic failure of 2013’s SimCity which was supposed to revitalize the franchise but instead became a disaster. Cities Skylines has since been hugely popular, giving players more than enough control in city building and the modding community for the title is endless.
Cities saw heaps of DLC since 2015, 15 expansions, more than a dozen content creator packs and even more cosmetic packs. Some of those expansions were well received like Plazas and Promenades, Mass Transit, and Industries, while others became their own singular map-centric challenges like Snowfall and Natural Disasters that just kind of exist amongst the list of additional content. Buying all the DLC in total will put you well over $300.
