    pcwhiz24

    The Sky is no limit!

    Inhabit a world where you define the rules. Cities: Skylines invites you to create the city of your dreams in a sprawling landscape dominated by cloud hugging structures and jaw dropping architectural marvels.

    Developed by Colossal Order, Cities: Skylines offers sprawling landscapes and maps with endless sandbox gameplay and new ways to expand your city. Key to progression is the ability to influence your city’s policy by incorporating taxation into districts. All this including the ability to mod the game to suit your play style makes this the definitive city building simulation.

    You’re only limited by your imagination, so take control and reach for the sky!

    Main features:

    • City policies: Set policies to guide how the city and districts develop over the course of your playthrough.

    • City districts: Personalize city districts with names of your choice for variety and personality.

    • Road building and zoning

    • Unlock buildings and services

    • Taxation: Fine-tuning the city budget and services and setting tax rates to different residential, commercial and industrial levels and controlling what kind of areas are more likely to spawn in the zoned areas

    • Public transportation: Build transport networks throughout the city with buses and metros

    • Outside connections: Make industry and commercial districts flourish with new customers in the neighboring cities

    • Wonders: the ultimate end-game content that the players strive towards

    • Huge maps: Unlock new map tiles with unique possibilities to expand the city

    • Water flow simulation: Add new challenges to water services.

    • Polished visual style and core gameplay

    • Modding tools: Built in feature designed to encourage creative pursuits.

    A direct competitor for SC 2013.  There is an implication in the trailer that this game has both on-line and off-line operation.

     

    Has this product been released or is this just hype?

    I love how theye advertise "play offline" :D

     

    Looks promising, specialy considering its alpha, could this be the "real new simcity"?

    Awesome. If CIM2 is any indication this should be a pretty good game.

    Is this yet another reason to avoid SimCity 2013? :D 

     

    I can easily see myself spending countless hours on this game, especially with the encouragement on modding. This could rival SimCity 4 in the 'hours spent' department. 

     

    I'm hoping this does not suffer the same fate as Cities XL, but since it's from Paradox Interactive, this may live on for at least a decade.

    It looks like they are on the right track and I can't wait to see more.  Of course, even if they're on the wrong track I would buy it just to spite EA.

    Ooooooooohhhhh.... This is either going to be a golden masterpiece or the back side of a dumpster. Hopefully the former.

    Its interesting, hmm but it doesn't take me away of the fact that citybound which IMO think that's going to be a real superseder for SC4 if the community is into it. But I'll keep a look out into this.

    I'm definitely looking forward to this game, especially since this is from the makers of CiM 2 which I loved playing!

    This could be the Simcity 5 we have all been waiting for. It looks like it has regions like that of SC4, some decent transport options and it's offline.

     

    Hopefully there is terraforming and the ability to create custom regions, combined with a not too buggy game experience, this could be great...

     

    Edit: I like the textures to. The ground looks earthy, most of the buildings have a slightly grimy and worn appearance to them, plus visually it is the best looking 3D city simulator I have seen. The grimy and dirty textures of SC4 appear to have been emulated in this game.

    They haven't specified minimum hardware reqirements, or did I miss it?

    I pray to god they have taken hints from SC on how to NOT make a city building game. Although i have really strong doubts this game will over come SC4 in my eyes, im quiet sure it will be way better than SC. Even their Cities in motion series, although its not even a city building game, ive spent loads of time just in map builder designing my own city. My hopes are high ^^

    Info is very sketchy.  We'll have to wait for more data.
