Cities: Skylines Releases on August 15 for PS4

Paradox Interactive has announced that they’re bringing Cities: Skylines to PlayStation 4 on August 15. It will be available through both physical and digital retailers.

A city-building game that set sales records for Paradox when it launched on PC, Cities: Skylines PlayStation 4 Edition will include the base game and After Dark expansion, as well as “controller-friendly gameplay and UI.”

Here’s the full list of features:

  • Build the city of your dreams – Plan road networks, bus lines and parks. Bring education, healthcare and safety to your citizens. Build it your way!
  • 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 – Ban heavy traffic in your 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. Add in new policies and zones to create popular hotspots and provide enough taxis and trains to get to and from the clubs!

Tantalus Media (Xbox One and Windows 10 versions of Cities: SkylinesThe Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD) is handling development of the PS4 version.
