Where are you going to go for a last-minute long weekend? New York, Paris; or perhaps a city you’ve built yourself in Cities: Skylines?
Cities: Skylines, the spiritual successor to Sim City from developer Colossal order and publisher Paradox Interactive, is rather popular.
It originally launched for PC via Steam in 2015, but has since also been ported to consoles – Dan was quite partial to the PS4 version when he reviewed it last year. There’s also been a huge stack of DLC and updates, much of it free to all players.
But if you’re still not convinced, then why not take it for a test run with the Cities: Skylines free weekend, running this very weekend?
It’s already open on Steam – sorry, we apparently didn’t receive that press release, though we get all their others – and will run until Sunday, February 11th, 2018.
Often, during these free weekends, publishers give you the opportunity to purchase the game at a discount. You’ll also get to carry on your progress if you do pick up the game, and the Cities: Skylines free weekend is no exception there.
In fact, it’s not just open to people who partake in the free weekend: anybody can rock up and save 75% off the base game, and discounts ranging up to 50% for the paid DLC. And while the Cities: Skylines free weekend runs until February 11th, the discounts on Steam don’t expire until the 12th.
