Focus Home Interactive's upcoming Cities XL is looking really nice. The developers have just released additional screenshots of the sequel to the the rather good Cities XL 2011.
I like the variety here; there's a homely looking Alpine town, a gleaming European city, and what looks to be a fairly close approximation of Sydney, all high-rise buildings close to the ocean.

What's going to be really interesting is the new modding tools that will be built into Cities XL 2012. We all know how inventive PC modders can be, so let's start our mod wishlist now shall we? What famous franchises d'you think lend themselves to Cities XL 2012's metropolis building tools?
