Cities: Skylines Console Edition gets Green Cities expansion today with new season pass
Since its release in 2017, The console version of Cities: Skylines has received a steady supply of expansions, which included Snowfall, Natural Disasters, and Mass Transit. All of these as well as several smaller pieces of DLC were all part of the original season pass, and now, Paradox Interactive has announced a new season pass that will cover another wave of expansions and DLC packs.
Aptly named Season Pass 2, the $39.99 pack will deal out three major expansions and four more DLC packs to those on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows 10 in 2019. Sadly, the Nintendo Switch version is not part of the equation.
Here are the Season Pass 2’s full contents:
- Green Cities (full expansion)
- European Suburbia (content creator pack)
- Parklife (full expansion)
- Country Road Radio (radio station DLC)
- All That Jazz (radio station DLC)
- Industries (full expansion)
- Synthetic Dawn Radio (radio station DLC)
From the top of the bunch, Paradox has surprise launched the Green Cities expansion and the European Suburbia content pack for the console version today. Both arrive as separate purchases and as part of the aforementioned Season Pass 2. Green Cities originally appeared for the PC version in 2017, and brings in eco-friendly buildings, electric vehicles, new ways to reduce pollution, plus more features.
In addition to the new season pass, Paradox has also updated the game’s bundle versions. There is now a $69.99 Cities: Skylines 2019 Premium Edition that comes with the base game as well as the second season pass. Meanwhile, the $99.99 Cities: Skylines Mayor’s Edition also carries everything from the Premium Edition, but adds on the original season pass from 2017 as well.
However, there is a snag for PlayStation 4 players in the Americas region. Paradox said that while PlayStation 4 players in Europe and Australia can now purchase any of the new releases, those residing in South and North America will need to wait until February 5.
