You can play Cities: Skylines for free until Sunday


Another expansion dropped today

Colossal Order is opening up its city-building simulation Cities: Skylines for the weekend. It’s free to download on Steam and play until this Sunday, February 21 at 1:00pm Pacific.

The game also got a new patch today, and a paid expansion, Snowfall. The former adds rain, fog, a theme editor, bug fixes, and expands the interface for public transportation; the latter includes the winter theme, three new maps, more objects like trams and saunas, and “some twinkle.”

That screenshot up there shows what a thoughtfully designed city could look like, but much of the fun in these games comes about when shit goes wrong and literally ends up overflowing in houses.
