Paradox Interactive, a publisher of best-selling games across many genres and platforms, today announced Cities: Skylines, the smash-hit city-building game from Colossal Order, will be released for PlayStation 4 on August 15th, 2017. The Cities: Skylines – PlayStation 4 Edition has been redesigned for console players with controller friendly gameplay and UI. The PlayStation4 Edition has been adapted for console play by Tantalus Media and will be distributed worldwide at physical retail by Koch Media.

The deep gameplay and unique charm have all been refined and optimised for play on a controller, and the new Edition will include the award-winning base game, bundled together with the popular After Dark expansion, allowing players to plan and design for their cities’ night-life and tourist attractions.

Cities: Skylines is a modern take on the classic city simulation. The game introduces new mechanics to realise the thrill and hardships of creating and maintaining a real city, and allows for high levels of customisation and personalisation.

Cities: Skylines – PlayStation 4 Edition features:
• Build the city of your dreams: Plan road networks, bus lines and parks. Bring education, healthcare and safety to your citizens. Build it your way!
• Extensive local traffic simulation: Managing traffic and the needs of your citizens to work and play will require the use of several interactive transport systems – use careful road planning alongside buses, trains, subways, and much more.
• Districts and policies: Ban heavy traffic in your downtown area, assign free public transport to your waterfront, or ban pets in suburbia. Designate parts of your city as a district in order to set policy at the local level, and give different parts of town their own personalities.
• After Dark included: Watch your city become an entirely different place at night: a day-night cycle will have your citizens seeking out places to unwind after work. Add in new policies and zones to create popular hotspots and provide enough taxis and trains to get to and from the clubs!

Cities: Skylines is coming to the Playstation 4 on August 15th 2017. It’s also available right now on Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux – find out more on the official website through this link.
