Cities: Skylines is bringing its city-building creativity and strategy to PS4

The PlayStation 4 Edition also includes the After Dark expansion

Hello, Players and Mayors! The team here at Paradox Interactive is delighted to announce that your demands have now become official city policy: we’re bringing our award-winning city-builder to your favourite console in Cities: Skylines – PlayStation 4 Edition!

At Paradox, strategy and creativity are the core of what we do, and judging from the amount of requests we’ve had to release Cities: Skylines on the PS4, they’re passions shared by this community as well.

We’ve been hard at work making sure the roads are smooth and the turbines are tuned, so that everything is ready when you build your first city block — but rest assured, the game is looking and playing great on a controller. When you pull back and watch the sun rise over the bustling city you’ve built from the ground up, it’s going to look truly inspiring on the big screen.

There’s more to Cities: Skylines, of course, than just zoning districts and placing your roads into a neat grid (or using them to spell out your name).

Want to build the all-green-energy and self-sustaining town of the future? Have a diabolical plan to build a dam across the river and funnel wastewater into your tourism district? We’ve even seen an entire town of services and infrastructure built around just one house!

Cities: Skylines is a game all about setting up plans and policies to create a metropolis that’s uniquely your own, and we can’t wait to see what PlayStation players are capable of.

City Skylines

When the game arrives later this year, you’ll get not only a controller-friendly version of Cities: Skylines, but also the tourism and nightlife features from the After Dark expansion. Your thriving community will need some places to unwind once the sun goes down, after all. Please, though, make sure you put in enough taxis and trains to let them get home safely!

We’ll have more info soon on the launch, and then you’ll be able to find the game in the store of your choice, or download it directly from PlayStation Store. Until then, brush up on your civic engineering and prepare your campaign speeches — the mayor’s office awaits!

“controller-friendly version” This is the big sticking point bringing a game like this to console, hopefully it feels smooth and intuitive with some thought and time dedicated to it. If so then I’ll be moving into the Mayor’s office.

I must say, this is tempting.

CoolRichy007UK 21 June, 2017 @ 16:11

Yesssssssssssss day1 buy for me and they will add all dlc anyway after game is out , a game without dlc is like a train without tracks so as long as allllllllllll the pc dlc gets added il be happy,

CoolRichy007UK 21 June, 2017 @ 16:15

Oh yea 4got to add you can ride trains cars etc and watch where they go i seen a YouTube video of a 1st person ride on a train round the mountains and snow so 1st thing im building is london to Scotland line :D


With mods you can. Mods are not supported on console.

Mods disable trophies. => Mods are crap.

CoolRichy007UK 27 June, 2017 @ 17:42

I seen vids of riding trains etc without mods!


“Controller friendly” is fair enough, but since the console supports mouse and keyboard, will they be supported as an option?

Great, I’ve been hoping for a long time that you guys bring this on the PS4.

Already brought this on XB1, wondering how different this version is and if there will be any other maps/dlc? Fantastic game anyway, even without mod support, but all it did is leave me wanting to spend a lot of money on a decent pc to get the proper version.

@Paradox: Will there be an auto-bulldoze feature? Pretty please? <3 It is even on the PC a pain to remove all of these (without a reason?) industry ruins… =/ None of these auto-bulldoze addons from the Workshop are working for me…

@PlayStation: DOODS! That reCaptcha system is soooo damn annoying these days… Especially on the phone, when you need to re-login to PSN Messenger for whatever reason…


Will this have mouse and keyboard support?

I can only imagine that even with the most sophisticated gamepad solution it can’t be perfect, and this game runs like [DELETED] on my crappy laptop so a solution like this would be ideal.

Sounds good but is very likely to be a game I’d play a few times and then discard for something more story based
