The latest expansion for Cities: Skylines is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Called Industries, this is considered the most in-depth expansion yet for the game. The expansion was released to the PC last year.

Given its scale, Industries is expected to become a larger and more meaningful part of Cities: Skylines. With this expansion, players can now build unique factories along with being able to customize the industrial areas with supply chains using four different resource types. In addition to production chains, there is now a city service that handles mail while a cargo airport helps ease the export and import of factory goods.

Key Features of the Industries expansion include:

  • Make It Happen
    • Follow your products from harvesting to processing, storage and production, then transport them to commercial zones or export to other cities.
  • Captain Your Own Industry
    • Define an area with the industry area tool and place highly specialized industrial buildings to build and manage the production chain from raw material extraction up to final end product.
    • Industry Areas are divided into four types based on the natural resource they are processing: Farming, Forest, Ore and Oil. These areas can level up upon reaching productions goals and staffing requirements.
  • Build it up, Buttercup
    • New industrial buildings include Extractors, Warehouse Facilities, Processing and Auxiliary Buildings, Industrial Props and Roads.
    • Unique Factories, such as Food, Toy, Furniture, Car and Electronics produce luxury products, and require a large quantity of workers, water and electricity as well as input from your industries.
  • Ship It
    • Manage traffic and logistics with industry warehouses and the use of the new Cargo Services including a cargo airport.
  • Go Postal
    • Boost your citizens’ well-being with mail delivery and collection services.
    • Post sorting facilities handle mail between outside connections and the post offices, and new Post Van and Truck vehicles enable the carriage.
  • Work Hard
    • Three new Industry Policies and four City-wide Policies, including Workers’ Union, Sorting, Tolls, Wi-Fi, Logistics, Work Safety and Automation.
  • Five New Maps
    • Rich in natural resources, transportation options and industrial opportunities, these new maps have all the right stuff.
  • Four new hats for Chirper!

It's not just about expansion, as like the PC version, console versions of Cities: Skylines also get the Synthetic Dawn Radio. Players can listen to some excellent music as synth-spin master DJ Jessica Statler brings in the funk. You can choose from a list of 16 original new songs spanning four genres: 80s Electro, Breakbeats, Futuristic Synths, and Vocoding Electro.

The PS4 and Xbox One versions of Cities: Skylines also get to experience a free update, which adds:

  • Toll Booths and Road Tolls
    • Slows the traffic roll a bit but help generate extra income for the city.
  • Players get the option to mark zoned buildings as historical, preserving their style, and the ability to create custom name lists for citizens, districts and spawned buildings.
  • Pearls from the East
    • Bring a splash of style to your city, inspired by Chinese architecture and design! Give residents some new attractions (and pandas!) to visit with three original buildings, each ready to become a unique part of the skyline: Shanghai Pearl Tower, Panda Zoo and a Chinese Temple.
