Upcoming Natural Disasters Full Expansion for Cities: Skylines Lets You Play God

May 2, 2018Written by John Abrena



It has already been announced before that the season pass for Cities: Skylines will include various DLC packs and full expansions. Snowfall already happened winter last year, and now, publisher Paradox Interactive has confirmed the next expansion happening on consoles.

Cities: Skylines – Natural Disasters is a full expansion of the original vanilla game which includes, you guessed it, natural disasters. The game lets players experience the thrill of bombarding their cities with various disasters, from tsunamis to a freaking meteor crashing down on the center of your city.  Players get to play mayor in the game, planning things like civilian escape routes, warning systems, and more. Not only that, players also get to decide when these disasters are coming, letting them “play God” and test out their own system of survival at their own whim.

The game is already released on Steam for quite some time, and here’s an overview of the expansion via their page there:
