Paradox Interactive is here to show you it knows how to have a wild time, with buses, and trains. and subways. Woohoo?
The Cities: Skylines Mass Transit update is going to add mass transit systems to Cities: Skylines.
<End of news story>
Only kidding. Of course there’s lots to say about it.
Here’s the low-down of what’s contained in the Mass Transit update, straight from the Paradox press release:
- Sick Transit, Glorious Money: Add a wealth of new transit options to your city, and add wealth to your city’s income! Let your citizens get across town in ferries, blimps, cable cars, and monorails!
- Orderly Hub, Bub: New mass transit hubs can bring 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. But HATS!)
There’s also a shiny new trailer.
We don’t have an exact release date for the paid Cities: Skylines Mass Transit DLC yet, but Paradox assure us it will be relatively soon. As is typical with updates to the game, it will come hand-in-hand with a free update for all players of the game, which will include some much-requested features, including traffic management, emergency vehicle overtaking and the ability to rename roads.
Finally. This interminable nameless road waking nightmare will soon be at an end.
