Snowfall Now Blanketing Cities: Skylines

By Rebecca Smith, 10 months ago
Paradox Interactive, a unique snowflake among publishers, today announced that the newest expansion to Cities: Skylines is now available for aspiring mayor-players everywhere. “Snowfall,” which was released today for players of Cities: Skylines, adds a flurry of weather-related features to the game, along with new transportation options and several new winter attractions to help citizens chill out.

A new free patch has also released today, including a new map Theme Editor to allow modders to alter the very fabric of in-game reality. Snowfall is available today on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs for $12.99.

Build your anticipation of precipitation with this trailer presentation:


In Snowfall, the difficulty heats up when the city cools down, thanks to a new in-game temperature reading that will have residents bundling up for warmth when the weather outside is frightful. Cosmetic weather, including rain and fog, has been added to Cities: Skylines as part of a free update. Players who own Snowfall will get to face new challenges such as ensuring that their city infrastructure can handle seasonal heating demands – and, when the snow starts falling, that the roads can stay clear.

New snowplow services will be required to prevent traffic from freezing in place, while new all-weather trams and expanded public transit options can help residents and visitors alike get around town – and visit the new winter parks and landmarks available in Snowfall.

A detailed list of features included both in Snowfall and in the free patch is available here.
