Humble Cities: Skylines Bundle is up for some easy city building

By - | Views: 13,178

Cities: Skylines, one of the finest city builders ever is now available in a big Humble Bundle for you to grab the base game and lots of extra content.

This is honestly a ridiculously good deal and probably the cheapest Cities: Skylines has ever been. For £1 you can get Cities: Skylines and the Deep Focus Radio DLC. Even if you only go for that, there's a lot to enjoy without any expansions.

However if you do want a bigger experience the second tier, which requires you to beat the average payment at the current time has:

  • Cities: Skylines - Concerts
  • Cities: Skylines - Content Creator Pack: High-Tech Buildings
  • Cities: Skylines - Snowfall
  • Cities: Skylines - Natural Disasters

The top tier at £14.50 has even more:

  • Cities: Skylines - Mass Transit
  • Cities: Skylines - Green Cities
  • Cities: Skylines - Industries
  • Cities: Skylines - Campus
  • Cities: Skylines - Content Creator Pack: Art Deco
  • Cities: Skylines - Content Creator Pack: European Suburbia

Likely the best overall deal you're going to see on Cities: Skylines for some time and it is good value if you don't own it already. It's been out for over five years now, and no other city builder has really come close to how good it is. Especially with all the extra free content you can get from the modding community.

Not a builder-gamer myself, but I am curious to try it out. Is it any good without the DLC's?

I had the base game and... After Dark and the free bits.

My impression from my playthrough was that it was a glorious city builder and a terrible, terrible simulation. The traffic is a fudge, and the population explosions that you get from actually using the rewards from passing population milestones trigger inescapable death waves. Last time I checked they had no intention of fixing that, so I haven't played since.

There's enjoyment to be had, but they may well punish you for it.

Yeah, it's great. Unless you want disasters (which I know a lot of people consider an indispensible part of SimCity), you absolutely don't need the DLC to enjoy it.

Beware that the recommended specs given on Steam are laughably inadequate these days, though. When it came out, I could run it comfortably in 4MB. Today, it struggles with 8 (which is to say that it's playable, but only with smaller cities, and forget any mods).

That's a fair point. I mentioned that my system can't run it with mods now, and that's the most frustrating part. The Traffic Manager mod is way more essential than any DLC.

You sure it wasn't 4 KB? ;)

Heh. :) I meant GB, of course. Now you dang whippersnappers get off my lawn. I don't know, kids today...

This article needs the Steam tag.

Though I guess Humble Bundle tag is these same thing these days.
