Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order have put school back on the map, as the Cities: Skylines - Campus expansion is out now. In terms of features and new content, this is one of the bigger expansions to be released.
Adding in a little extra complexity for those who want it while also giving you even more freedom at the same time with the way you design your campus. Much like what came with the Parklife expansion, Campus lets you freely zone an entire area to build your fancy new education system.
As you design your campus, you will also gain access to various sports arenas all heavily inspired by American education. There's American Football, Basketball, Baseball, Track & field and swimming arenas which opens it up even more as you sell tickets, hire coaches, collect prizes for winning and so on. There's also five new maps, three new hats for Chirper, graduation ceremonies, museums and more.
Additionally, a free update went out for everyone to go along with it. This free update includes new Public Library and Academic Library buildings, bus line customization, a Yellow School Bus model, job titles for citizens and modding plus a rebalanced education mechanic and the usual assortment of bug fixes.
It continues to work well on Linux, good fun to play for those who don't want something overly serious. One of those gems that I find myself consistently coming back to play. Just don't expect to make that dinner date, it will suck away your time like a real demon.
