We’ve been keeping an eye on Cities Skylines since it was first announced at Gamescom 2014 and covered it as they’ve released more details on the game. Recently, they released a new trailer which they call “a lot of new footage,” but being only a minute long, it isn’t exactly that much footage. It is new though.
What’s interesting is that they are offering every single player who merely creates a Paradox Interactive account and “signs the petition” will help the community as a whole unlock a prettier looking Japanese-style zen garden that all players who sign up will get for free, regardless whether they buy the game or not. Not entirely sure what you would do with a game asset of a Japanese zen garden without the game it belongs in, but people can be pretty creative.
Cities Skylines is an upcoming city-building simulation being developed by Colossal Order, the makers of the cult-hit mass transit simulation series Cities in Motion.
Cities Skylines is planned for release some time in the first quarter of 2015 for PCs.
