First Cities: Skylines Expansion to Release on September 24th

Sneak in After Dark and Read Colossal Order’s Diary

STOCKHOLM – Aug. 20, 2015 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and a civic-minded somnambulist, today announced that “After Dark,” the first expansion for the hit city-building game Cities: Skylines, will release worldwide on September 24, 2015.

The expansion, which will include a broad variety of features, such as a day-and-night cycle, new nighttime city services and options, and much more, will be available to players of Cities: Skylines on PC, Mac, and Linux for $14.99 via digital distributors everywhere.

To give curious city constructors a glimpse of what awaits them in After Dark, Paradox has released a design diary from Cities: Skylines developer Colossal Order, along with a new batch of in-game screenshots showing several of the substantial sundown surprises that await players.

Read about the changes that go into a city at night in the first After Dark diary: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...ark-dev-diary-1-night-time-what-is-it.877721/

In After Dark, the sun will set on mayor-players’ in-game cities – but it will rise once nighttime is over, so nobody needs to worry. Towns will look – and behave – differently at night, with new leisure-focused nightspots, popular beachfront properties that thrive during the daytime, and new systems such as taxicabs, prisons, bike lanes, and much more.

Hey guys ! Great news. Even if I would have liked to see more pictures with bicycles lanes and beaches, your diary makes me impatient :)

Talkin' about beaches, waterfronts will be included ? Walkways waterfront ?

Thanks :)

I have to be honest, I don't like the direction they took on this. Night-time was never on my wish list anyway, but if implemented I assumed it would be cosmetic. Now it seems it will be an actual alternate state for many buildings. This was a HUGE problem with the last SC in that, for example, schools would be over-crowded during the "day" and suddenly empty at "night". You had to, literally, "catch" them at midday to know how you were doing. I sincerely hope that's NOT how these new day/night sensitive buildings and facilities are going to work.

Wouldn`t count on the £8 for UK though, rare UK ever gets the real $-EU-GBP rating, but time`ll tell ;)

Very good news indeed! :) One request, can we have some gameplay footage of After Dark release? I mean the only footage we got was the reveal trailer, and since now the release date has been announced, how about some videos? Thanks.
