Cities: Skylines has reached a new milestone with more than 12 million copies sold across all platforms since its release. Despite being released in 2015, the game keeps evolving with its deep simulation and never-ending customizing opportunities.

After it was launched, the development team worked to perfect the gaming experience. Since then, there have been 13 expansions released along with more than 10 radio stations and bundles. All of these to make sure that the game would offer a complete experience not only to old fans but also to new ones.

The gameplay is straightforward, where players start with a plot of land located along with an interchange exit from a nearby highway and some in-game money. Players can then add roads and residential, industrial, and commercial zones. Of course, basic services like water, power, and sewage should be present to motivate residents to move in.

The game developed so great that the community put their flourishes, giving birth to its modding world, which is considered one of the most active in the world. It’s no wonder that the game continues to grow and expand.

In a statement, Colossal Order CEO Mariina Hallikainen shared that they have been grateful for how active the community is and happy to see them share their passion for city-building games. She added that they continued to listen to the feedback and remain committed to bringing more joy to the fans.
