Fasten your seatbelts everyone, something exciting is landing soon on Cities: Skylines. The new expansion is titled Airports, arriving on January 25, 2022. It’s going to focus on modern-day air travel and let players create and manage travel hubs in their cities. Priced at $12.99, it will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Key features of this upcoming expansion include:

  • Modular Airport Building: Place and design your airport and then connect the different buildings through the use of concourse networks.
  • Airport Progression: For players able to get the approval of business travelers and tourists alike, they’re rewarded with expanded building options and even bigger airplanes. This should be a boon for the local travel industry.
  • Public transport: Make life easier for many would-be travelers by putting in dedicated airport buildings. Connect the airport to the city by using base game transport types like bus, metro, and train stations.
  • Cargo Air Traffic: Create cargo terminals connected to the larger airport complex that fit in visually with other airport buildings. Eliminate the need for older eyesores while bringing in new goods and materials.

Cities: Skylines is a contemporary take on the classic city simulation. It offers new gameplay elements while also expanding some of the well-established tropes of building a city. Some of what the game offers are:

  • Multi-tiered and challenging simulation
    • Building a city from the ground up may be easy to learn, but it’s definitely hard to master.
    • It’s not just buildings since different requirements need to be looked into. These include, among others, education, water, electricity, police, fire fighting, and healthcare.
  • Districts and Policies
    • The game is more than just being the mayor of a city.
    • Players need to designate parts of their city as a district, which results in the application of policies that could improve their status as mayor.
  • Utilize the Day and Night Cycle
    • The city changes during the hours of the day and affects citizen schedules.
    • For example, traffic is slower at night and some zoned areas do not work with full efficiency.
