Paradox Interactive have announced that Cities: Skylines will be released on Xbox One and Windows 10 this year.
Cities: Skylines – Xbox One Edition is specifically tailored for play on a controller and been co-developed with Tantalus Media, the Australian studio that recently worked on the HD version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for Wii U.
Along with the main Cities: Skylines game, the Xbox One Edition and Windows 10 Edition will also include the game’s first expansion, After Dark, which adds funky nightlife and tourism features.
Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox, said in a press statement:
“Paradox is a company that’s proud to publish and support ‘niche’ games, and we’re happy to be able to bring those specialized experiences to console as well. Cities: Skylines has built one of the biggest and most active communities we’ve seen among Paradox’s fans, and that’s saying a lot. We can’t wait to welcome Xbox One players into that group, and I’m eager to see the towns and cities they can build.”
Cities: Skylines was first released on Microsoft Windows, OS X, Steam in March, 2015. The game was an instant hit with critics and players, quickly filling the space vacated by the floundering Sim City series. The game has since gone on to sell over 2 million copies world-wide.
There’s no news on whether Paradox Interactive will bring the game to other console platforms, but PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch editions would be most welcome. Hint, hint.
