Cities: Skylines mods now available on Xbox One

Updated February 20, 2018: A number of free mods are now available for Cities: Skylines on Xbox One. Console players can now get their hands on a curated collection of new buildings and items, and there's more to come.

Paradox Interactive is bringing a little more customization love to its city builder, Cities: Skylines, on Xbox One this week. The developer has announced that Xbox One players will finally be able to get their hands on user-created mods starting on February 20.

User-created mods have been available for the PC version of Cities: Skylines for some time, so their move to the Xbox One version should be welcome. "If you've ever wanted to give your community a fancy clock tower, or put in some swimming pools, or even turn the planes at your local airport into futuristic spacecraft, your fellow Cities fans have been hard at work to let you do just that," Paradox says.

Modders won't be able to push their creations to Xbox One at any point. Rather, it looks as if Paradox will be curating a testing specific mods before rolling them out to Xbox One users. The first batch of curated mods is set to drop on February 20 as part of a free update.

Following the launch of user-created mods, Paradox says it also has a new content pack coming soon for Season pass owners. Called the Content Creator Pack, the DLC will let you add some Art Deco and technological flair "created by some of Cities: Skylines' most talented community artists and modelers" to your city. Additionally, a free content update landing on March 6 will add the ability for your city to host a sports team.
