As part of its Gamescom 2017 announcements, developer Paradox Interactive announced that Cities: Skylines will be going green with its next batch of content. Fittingly titled "Green Cities," the upcoming expansion will ship later in 2017 with a whole load of new ways to make your city a little cleaner and, well, green.
In all, Paradox Interactive says that Green Cities brings 350 new assets to the game. Those include electric vehicles, eco-friendly buildings, new services, and organic stores. There's a whole lot more than that in store, too. Paradox explains:
Alongside the paid Green Cities expansion, a free update will ship for everyone with electric cars, road modding, and other tidbits like parks and trees.
There's no precise launch date for Green Cities yet, but Paradox Interactive says it will arrive before the year is out. Once it lands, the expansion will be available for $12.99 for Windows, MacOS, and Linux. No word on when or whether the expansion will hit Xbox One as well.
If you're still craving new content in the meantime, Cities: Skylines recently shipped a new Concert-focused mini-expansion on Steam. Or, if Xbox One is your platform of choice, you can grab that version of the game on the Xbox Store.

"Organic stores??!" "Are you thinking what I'm thinking Pinky??"
sounds fun! I love this game!
I can't wait for this expansion to drop. I'm with you swizzlerz. This game is engrossing. Too bad Microsoft hasn't partnered with Paradox to make this VR ready. Would be really cool to occasionally tag a car or truck and ride that sucker around the city.. Driving through underground tunnels and to through complex highways would be super crazy to do in VR.
