Having been announced way back in August 2015, you’d have been forgiven for forgetting all about the Xbox One version of Cities: Skylines. This is the best city builder in donkey’s years, receiving more than a little bit of critical acclaim and selling tons of units for Colossal Order and Paradox Entertainment. Having been optimised for controller by Tantalus Media, it’s now heading to Xbox One (and with a Windows 10 edition alongside) this spring.
However, this isn’t quite as big and bustling a game as it is on PC right now. Xbox One Edition and Windows 10 Edition will include the base game and the After Dark expansion, but there’s no mention of the Snowfall or Natural Disasters DLC, and mod support is tied in with Steam Workshop, making that relatively unlikely to appear as well. Either way, we’ve fired off an email to Paradox to see if they’re at liberty to say anything right now.
Update: Not that we expected much more than this, Paradox’ response was as follows.
We would like to bring more content to XboxOne in the future, but right now we’re focusing on bringing the Xbox One Edition to market.
In other words, they’re building it in the hope that people will come, and if enough people come, they will build more of it.
It must be said, even without the most recent content, it’s still a fantastic game.
