The clear winner of the city building wars has been determined as Cities Skylines continues to enjoy its well-deserved commercial success.
Developer Colossal Order and publisher Paradox Interactive can be extremely pleased about the performance of their city building simulation game Cities Skylines. Paradox has confirmed that the game has sold over 3.5 million copies across the world.
“From the first day Cities: Skylines was released, it’s been breaking records,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “The game had our biggest launch in history at the time, selling 250.000 copies in its first 24 hours, and the community has only gotten bigger and more devoted over the last two years. Cities: Skylines perfectly showcases the kind of experiences we’re proud to support at Paradox: a game that people are just as excited to play now as they were two years ago. Happy birthday to Cities: Skylines, congratulations to Colossal Order, and my sincere thanks to all our players.”
As part of the second anniversary celebration, Paradox and Colossal Order have announced a free DLC pack called Pearls from the East. As you can imagine, the building pack will feature three Asian-themed buildings – Panda Zoo, Chinese Temple, and the Shanghai Pearl Tower. Don’t forget about the Mass Transit expansion pack, which is promising to bring much-needed improvements to the public transportation system by offering new forms of transportation, as well as new transit service buildings, mass transit hubs, scenarios, landmarks, and road types.
It seems like it’s the perfect time to jump back into Cities Skylines and become mayor once again. If you still haven’t tried the game, you can get a 70% discount if you pick it up from our friends at Digital Librty. All expansion packs (After Dark, Natural Disasters, Snowfall) are available as is the building pack Art Deco.Published in
