Cities: Skylines' Console Season Pass Starts With Snowfall

By Kelly Packard, 1 year ago
Cities: Skylines has multiple expansions on PC, but outside of the "After Dark" DLC that is packed into the console editions, we hadn't yet heard of a timeline for the rest of the expansions to come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Publisher Paradox has announced a season pass for Skylines that will bring the rest of the content to console fans.

The season pass includes seven pieces of content: three "full expansions," two "content creator packs" and two "radio station DLC":

  • Snowfall (full expansion)
  • Natural Disasters (full expansion)
  • Mass Transit (full expansion)
  • High Tech Buildings (content creator pack)
  • Art Deco (content creator pack)
  • Relaxation Station (radio station DLC)
  • Rock City Radio (radio station DLC)
"Snowfall" is the first expansion to be released from the season pass, and it has already been dated for November 14th. Also announced was a Premium Edition that will include the season pass and the base game and will launch on the same date.

"Snowfall" includes more than just its namesake. In addition to snow, players' cities may experience rain and fog conditions that each come with their own unique challenges. Gamers will have to send out snowplows to address the inclement weather and maintain their roads that have deteriorated from harsh conditions.

  • Now is the Winter of This Content: Rain and fog for existing maps, plus a “Winter” map theme with snow and new challenges - snowplows, road maintenance, and more
  • The Streetcars You Desire: New public transit options, including street trams and easier management of existing lines
  • World Warmth, Too: Cold weather increases demands for electricity, unless new heat systems are in place

No pricing was available for the season pass or the Premium Edition as of this writing, both of which will be available in the Xbox ecosystem for Xbox One and Windows 10 (Update: Pricing has since been found at US$12.99 for "Snowfall" on its own, US$39.99 for the season pass and US$69.99 for the Premium Edition).
