Pollution been getting you down? Ready to go Greeen? Cities: Skylines - Green Cities [Paradox, Steam], the latest expansion to the city builder releases on October 19th and it has a new trailer.

As usual, the new expansion will have same-day Linux support and it will cost around $12.99.

It sounds like it might be the best expansion yet, with 350 new game assets added, including plenty of new visual options, brand new eco-friendly buildings, organic stores for those wholesome foods, new parks and services, all at the your disposal to give pollution the kick once and for all.

Will you be picking it up?

Not only that, but a free update will be coming at the same time too. This update will add in electric cars, road modding, a noise pollution overhaul, more beautification options in the form of parks and trees and possibly more.

I've been waiting for too long to get the definitive edition of this game with all the DLCs, it's never running out of new DLCs

I might pick it up for this new one, looks very interesting to me

It's the paradox business model for better or worst
Still they put out nice stuff and show Tux love.

I'm a bit skeptical: This game is not limited by the number of things you can build in your city. In fact there is plenty of stuff you can build (and there is the Workshop). Therefore the fact that there will be 350 new assets doesn't really excity me.

IMO a very important weak point is that at some point, usually if you exceed 50000 citizens or something, the game becomes much less challenging. You always have plenty of money at that point, have build most of the infrastructure of the city and the remaining game is just build more of the same and wait and see. It becomes boring. I think Colossal Order should focus on addressing this and possibly other weaknesses of the game, rather than just giving people more stuff to build.

As a huge city builder fan I will not be getting this hippie tripe. All this DLC achieves is to cover up the broken simulation by reducing traffic and pollution affects. There is so much wrong with the game that needs fixing. They need to fix the following:-

Fix the ridiculously small farms.
Crime Simulation along with other city services.
Fix Broken traffic simulation and add more road options.
Add more Industrial options and specialisation.
Add Medium density zoning.
Add Mixed use zoning or policy.
Add Challenging gameplay.

A futuristic DLC/Expansion would have been preferable and way more fun to play with than this. For now I am done with CS until the game is fixed.
