Cities: Skylines Gets Over 3000 Mods in a Couple of Days

By   /   Mar 12, 2015

Our gaming community never ceases to amaze me. How about a newly released game that has received over 3000 mods? By newly released I mean just a couple of days ago on March 10.

The title I’m talking about is Cities: Skylines. Since it came out with Steam Workshop support, modders have released 3,651 mods. That’s just a number I saw during  my visit to the page. I had to change the figure twice as it keeps going up. You can just keep refreshing the page to see another 10-20 mods added every time.

Cities: Skylines is a city simulation and is much more complex than the SimCity. Users have posted numerous positive reviews and praised Cities: Skylines for its gameplay. The game uses urban planning for city development and players are in control of zoning, taxation, road placement, public transportation and public services.

It’s sandbox gameplay at its best with massive maps for you to manage. Policies determined by the player can impact the city’s development or development of a certain district. There is also a population tier system, meaning you must reach a certain level of population before you can access new city improvement like waste management system, schools, fire stations and more.

Players can designate different parts of the city for certain developments such as clean energy and agriculture. Developed by Collosal Order and published by Paradox Interactive, Cities: Skylines is available on Steam for $29.99.
