Cities: Skylines Final Dev Diary

Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order have today released the final installment of their video developer diary series for Cities: Skylines, the highly anticipated city simulation game for PC, Mac and Linux. To uncover Cities: Skylines, watch the brand new developer diary below.

The developer diary lifts the lid on a variety of systems within the game that aim to make the job of building your perfect working metropolis as streamlined as possible. The video gives an insight into the systems behind the game, proving that the game is as smart as it is beautiful.

Cities: Skylines contains the first integrated Dynamic Water System giving all the rivers and estuaries within the game real-world mass and direction. This means that players must think carefully about water supply placement, with genuine risk of polluting the supply if waste goes upstream.

The video developer diary also explores Zoning within the game, enabling the player to simulate a realistic city of up to one million people, along with the District Tool and the Economic Simulation model.

Players of Cities: Skylines will have total control in endless sandbox city-building gameplay across massive maps, allowing them to design and manage the metropolis of their dreams. Vast backdrops and maps provide players with countless ways to improve and expand their cities, while extensive modding support allows players to design everything from in-game parks and buildings to new landscapes.

Cities: Skylines is set for release on March 10th.
