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:
And that's just the tip of the iceberg, with exciting new features such as: Story to Story, Building to Building, Street to Street: New Eco-Friendly Buildings, New specialization buildings, new alternative service buildings, new unique buildings, electric cars, new parks -- 350 new assets in all giving a unique new look to Cities: Skylines I Wish I Was Special, You're So Very Special: New specialized options for all city zones, plus leveled-up specializations for the first time in Cities: Skylines So What So What So What's the Scenario: New scenarios, new policy options, and a new Monument to make your friends Green with envy Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear More Stylish: Of course we've included a flower-crown hat for Chirper.
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.
