Want to try one of the best city builders around? Cities: Skylines is currently free to play until the end of the weekend (yes a whole 5 days!) and it's on sale too along with plenty of other Paradox titles.

Paradox are running their own dedicated Lunar Sale, so from now until February 15 (on Steam) and February 17 (on their store) you can build up your collection of their own games and titles they publish by others.

Cities: Skylines, originally released in 2015, is one of their best selling published games that was originally developed by Colossal Order Ltd. (who also made Cities in Motion). It's still hugely popular too, regularly seeing around 20 thousand players online at any one time on Steam. Part of that is thanks to their modding and Steam Workshop integration which has grown to some truly insane levels of content. There's over 44 thousand maps to download, over 52 thousand saved games you can try and the list goes on of extras you can add in.

I love this game! I hope they will continue polishing it. It could really do with an engine upgrade at this point. There are so many awesome mods out there, but you can install only that many before the engine starts crashing. I also would love to see a proper North American city theme one day. Our cities just look different than they do in Europe, and it would be nice to have it in game. There were mods around that did that, but they got broken by game updates.
