First expansion will reveal at Gamescom!


In the picture we have Mariina on Finnish television.

Mariina Hallikainen told to Techradar: “We’ll have a big expansion and release both free and paid updates, all of which we’ll be revealing at Gamescom.“

What could the first expansion be?

When asking about bikes, bike lanes, skaters, trams and above-ground metros, Hallikainen said that “Above-ground metros is very unlikely to happen. I haven’t been thinking
about skate parks, but it sounds like fun. I wonder what our animator
would come up with – probably something crazy.“

On advanced tourism, like casinos: “Excellent!”

She also liked the idea of zombies, broadwalks, seaside attractions, ferries and higher land value for beachside properties.

Amusement parks on the other hand: “I’m a huge fan of Theme Park, but it would be
difficult to make in the game. As a unique building then sure, but I
think people would want to actually build them, so it’s very unlikely to
happen unfortunately.“

What’s next?

Mariina hopes that people can enjoy Skylines at least couple of years,
because they want to add so much stuff to the game before making a
sequel. A sequel is probably coming when it doesn’t make any sense to
continue working on Cities: Skylines, due to technical issues.

“We’re going to be focusing on some great expansions
and getting free updates out to generally improve the game. We’re also
very focused on improving the modding tools to allow them to do even
cooler stuff.“

Gamescom takes place in Cologne, Germany in August. What do you think? What is the first expansion?
