Cities: Skylines - Xbox One edition

Paradox Interactive has announced that the Xbox One edition of Cities: Skylines will launch worldwide on April 21, 2017.

Cities: Skylines – Xbox One Edition has been specifically optimised for controller play with the assistance of Australian studio, Tantalus Media. The release includes the base game and its first expansion, the nightlife-focused, After Dark.

The game has been a huge success since it’s release two years ago, with developer Colossal Order recently celebrating sales of over 3.5 million copies worldwide. Assuming the console-centric controls are well implemented, the upcoming Xbox One release should see it reach an even larger audience.


Taking on the role of mayor, the game sees you plan and balance the wellbeing of a city and its citizens, controlling everything from education and healthcare, to public safety and tourism. If you haven’t had a chance to experience the game, you can check it out at the Paradox Interactive booth at EGX Rezzed in London.

Cities: Skylines – Xbox One Edition will retail for $39.99 / £34,99 / €39.99.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
