Paradox Announce Cities: Skylines After Dark Expansion

by on August 9, 2015

Paradox Interactive have announced the first expansion pack for their hit city-builder Cities: Skyline, titled After Dark.

The expansion will bring a day and night cycle to the game, as well as Leisure Specialisation for commercial zones making them more active at night and Beach Specialisation which will enable the construction of beach bars and restaurants along the shoreline.

City services will also receive an expansion: taxis will now drive around the streets, prisoners will be transported to jails from police stations and a new international airport will be available to allow for a much larger volume of visitors.

“Day and night changes in the city and affects citizen schedules,” Paradox explained at Gamescom. “Traffic is visibly slower at night and some zoned areas do not work with full efficiency, further easing the traffic. Service vehicles move around as usual.”

Cities: Skylines debuted earlier this year and quickly passed the 1 million sales mark following a range of positive reviews, including our own. A release date for After Dark has not been announced, but it is expected to release sometime this year.
