Tunnel snakes rule! Cities: Skylines update adds tunnels and more

Euro-centric maps and buildings

The excellent city-builder Cities: Skylines is going subterranean with its first big update.

The expansion includes:

  • Three new European Themed Maps
  • Over 50 European style buildings for the new European map themes
  • Wall-to-wall buildings enabled for the European Style buildings 
  • Tunnels, one of the community’s most requested features
  • A number of Asset Editor additions including the ability to import custom vehicles
  • A multitude of smaller cosmetic additions and bug fixes.

Read here for a full list of additions. Brand Manager Jakob Munthe explained, “Going forward, we will focus on giving away the main features for free and improving the modding tools, while also selling major expansions around new mechanics. But we will also continue to offer free content such as new buildings and road types.”

As the heir (or usurper) to Sim City, I think the excellent Cities: Skylines has built up a lot of good faith with fans and big, free updates like this are one reason why.
