Cities: Skylines will be remastered for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S next week

For many, Cities: Skylines is the premier city building simulation. When the PC launched in 2015, it quickly became a fan favorite for those who felt let down by modern SimCity titles. When the sim title hit consoles two years later, the less-intuitive controls didn’t detract too much from the experience, allowing it to still offer a great city-building experience. Now, developer Colossal Order and publisher Paradox have announced Interview Cities: Skylines Remastered, which enhances the experience for console players in countless ways.

This new version of Cities: Skylines aims to let players create bigger and better metropolises than ever before. In addition to the obvious graphics and performance improvements made possible by the newer hardware, players can take their city-planning skills to the next level with up to 25 buildable tiles, up from the 9 in the PS4 and Xbox One versions. In addition, players can look forward to a quick selection tool, user experience improvements such as precise placements and updated snapping options, a new environment panel, a map editor, and the ability to freely place structures.

Perhaps most importantly, anyone who owns the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version and its DLC will get Cities: Skylines Remastered and DLC (up to the Airports expansion) for free on their respective family of consoles. Those who don’t already own the last-gen console version can pick up Cities: Skylines Remastered for $40.

You can see a very brief teaser rattling off some of the improvements the team has made for this new version below.

Cities: Skylines Remastered will be released on February 15 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. The remastered versions of the DLC will be available in the coming months.
