“Was it always this chaotic?” wonders a seagull in the opening moments of the trailer for Cities: Skylines upcoming expansion. It goes by the name Plazas & Promenades (that is, the expansion, not the seagull), and just as the name suggests, it revolves around places where you can use your legs to get around, rather than a car. There are walking paths, market squares and regular zones as well as streets where cars are simply prohibited.
Other news includes street music to increase the happiness in the pedestrian zone (on the other hand, it also counts as noise). If you instead want to reduce the residents’ happiness, you can introduce a sugar ban, which increases their lifespan. There are also three new district specializations: office buildings, high-density residential and high-density commercial zones, with 24 new associated buildings.
The price lands at €14.99 and the expansion should be released “soon”. Otherwise, the game is going like a train, and celebrated twelve million copies sold a couple of months ago.
