OverviewOverview

Cities: Skylines is a city-building simulation. It rekindled the attention to detail and ambitious city planning of the Sim City games. You zone buildings, place roads, set taxation, provide public services and public transportation. The aim is to do this while also maintaining your budget, health, employment, and pollution levels.

The game offers a more detailed simulation than previous interactions of the genre. It offers an open world that can host the daily routines of nearly a million unique citizens, while presenting this to the player via an understandable interface. Through stats, dashboards and infographics you can see realistic traffic congestion, pollution, electric and water supply.
