Cities: Skylines Returns on PlayStation 4! Cities: Skylines brings back classic management gameplay with an endless sandbox and new ways to expand the city. Aiming at a deep, creative and accessible experience, the game varies in how hardcore it is but will always offer a genuine challenge based on complex and rich systems. Newly optimized for play on a controller, the PlayStation®4 Edition brings the creative management game to consoles along with Cities: Skylines –After Dark, the game’s nightlife-focused expansion.
PlayStation®4 players finally have the opportunity to experience the award-winning management game, available for purchase via disc starting today. Build the city of your dreams: Plan road networks, bus lines and parks. Bring on a smog-filled industrial revolution or create a quiet beach town ideal for tourists powered by renewable energy.
Bring education, healthcare and safety to your citizens. Build it your way! Multi-tiered and challenging simulation: Playing as the mayor of your city, you’ll be faced with balancing essential requirements such as education, water electricity, police, firefighting, healthcare and much more, along with your city’s economy. Citizens within your city react fluidly, keeping you on your toes with ever-evolving demands.
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: Be more than just another city hall official! Create a car-free 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.
Cities: Skylines is definitely a must-own for fans of the genre, or gamers with a nostalgic itch for SimCity that EA certainly won’t scratch.
Cities Skylines is a ridiculously clever and enjoyable game, and one that I expect I will spend a lot of time playing down the track. EA looks like it will not be revitalising Sim City as a franchise anytime soon, so I’m so glad that another developer has stepped up to the plate and created the game that the last Sim City should have been… and I am so glad it’s finally on PlayStation 4.
A perfect porting from the PC version, fresh and enjoyable, even without the presence of some DLCs (Snowfall, Natural Disasters and Mass Transit). If you love city builder games, buy it without hesitation.
Cities: Skyline is one of the best modern city-builder games of the market. Its support of modder community will bring us greats joys.
It didn't offer anything new two years ago and it doesn't do it today either. Even so, Cities: Skylines is one of the best urban management games you can play on Sony's PS4. Nicely adapted to be played with a controller. The expansions from the PC version are missing, and there is a lack of an advanced introductory tutorial, but if you want to be a great mayor, this is your game.
Cities: Skylines – PlayStation 4 Edition brings an excellent city-simulator to consoles offering an amazing interface and excellent visuals. Everything is straightforward in terms of gameplay and the game feels like a modern take on the older and excellent versions of Sim City. While the console version may lack some of the content the PC version does, there is more than enough here to keep anyone busy.
Cities: Skylines is an impressively-detailed simulation, to be sure, and it’s a lot of fun once you start to get things up and running, with the caveat that getting it up and running is a lot easier said than done. This is not a casual game by any stretch of the imagination, and given how complex many of the mechanics are, it’s pretty ridiculous that the game doesn’t offer a more robust tutorial system. That led to a boatload of frustration early on for me, but to be fair, it also made things that much more rewarding once I got the hang of them.
