Flying in the face of Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction for an early spring, the Cities: Skylines Snowfall expansion is forecast for the middle of February.
After the failed rekindling of the venerable Sim City franchise, Cities: Skylines has built itself up as the premier mayoral simulator atop a strong foundation of combining familiar gameplay and masses of content, with the added bonus of not needing to be online and connected to unreliable servers at all times to play.
Now Paradox Interactive are building on their legacy with the Cities: Skylines Snowfall expansion, which does exactly what it says on the tin. Here’s the details from the press release:
In Snowfall, a new in-game temperature system will keep mayor-players on their toes. When the snow starts to fall, the roads will need to be kept clear, and buildings will need to be heated. Residents will also have the chance to visit new winter parks and landmarks available in Snowfall, along with an all-new tram system to get them across town in all sorts of weather. These features will arrive alongside free updates for all Cities: Skylines players when Snowfall launches on February 18, 2016.
And boy does the Cities: Skylines Snowfall expansion look pretty.
