Cities: Skylines is Getting A New Expansion Focused on Industries & It's Releasing Sooner Than You Think!
Paradox Interactive together with the developers, Colossal Order announced today that Cities: Skylines will be getting a brand new expansion. The expansion titled ‘Industries’ has been much requested from the fans and is coming out October 23rd, 2018!
So after Park Life, which was fun but really non-essential, this might be the expansion I’ve been waiting for. There are some fundamental changes to how you’ll define the supply chain for your industries.
Instead of simply letting the private sector handle industries, it looks like you will be building some really important building dealing with warehousing, logistics and even resource extraction.
It’s evolving to feature the same core mechanics of an Anno city building game (which are primarily about supply chains).
Check out the highlighted features:
Make It Happen - Follow your products from harvesting to processing, storage and production, then transport them to commercial zones or export to other cities.
Captain Your Own Industry - Define an area with the industry area tool and place highly specialized industrial buildings to build and manage the production chain from raw material extraction up to final end product. Industry Areas are divided into four types based on the natural resource they are processing: Farming, Forest, Ore and Oil. These areas can level up upon reaching productions goals and staffing requirements.
Build it up, Buttercup - New industrial buildings include Extractors, Warehouse Facilities, Processing and Auxiliary Buildings, Industrial Props and Roads. Unique Factories, such as Food, Toy, Furniture, Car and Electronics produce luxury products, and require a large quantity of workers, water and electricity as well as input from your industries.
Ship It - Manage traffic and logistics with industry warehouses and the use of the new Cargo Services including a cargo airport.
Go Postal - Boost your citizens’ well-being with mail delivery and collection services. Post sorting facilities handle mail between outside connections and the post offices, and new Post Van and Truck vehicles enable the carriage.
Wonk Hard - Three new Industry Policies and four City-wide Policies, including Workers’ Union, Sorting, Tolls, Wi-Fi, Logistics, Work Safety and Automation.
Five New Maps - Rich in natural resources, transportation options and industrial opportunities, these new maps have all the right stuff.
Four new hats for Chirper!
