Cities: Skylines - Snowfall

The second large expansion for Cities: Skylines, an economic strategy game developed by Colossal Order. The Snowfall add-on introduces changing weather conditions and temperature fluctuation that can significantly influence the functioning of our city. As the temperature goes down, the citizens consume a lot more power, requiring us to meet the increased demand for electricity or build a municipal central heating system. Apart from rain and fog, which are both purely cosmetic events, a heavy snowfall can be a serious problem for the mayor as it paralyzes traffic and necessitates additional spending for snow clearing. Furthermore, the expansion offers a myriad of new buildings connected to the theme of winter, improved city transport management, and the long-awaited trams that complement the list of available means of public transportation.

This is Cities: Skylines expansion pack.

Snowfall is the second expansion for Cities: Skylines for PC / Windows. The production, being a classical city-building simulator, debuted in March, 2015, and was well-received by players who waited for a worthy successor of the classic SimCity 4 for years. The title sold over a million copies worldwide, and thanks to the incessant support of the developers and the modding scene it still attracts new players. The expansion and the original game were developed by Colossal Order, which specializes in economic strategy productions and created the Cities in Motion series. Similarly to After Dark, some of the novelties introduced in Snowfall were given at no cost to the owners of the vanilla game in the form of a free patch.


Cities: Skylines – Snowfall for PC / Windows introduces changing weather and temperature which actually influence the functioning of our city. As temperature goes down, citizens use a lot more power to heat their homes and workplaces. Our task is to face the fluctuating demand for electricity. We prevent any potential problems by developing power plants and transmission lines or by deciding to build a municipal central heating system. Apart from rain or fog, which are both purely cosmetic, a heavy snowfall can pose a real challenge for the mayor since it may paralyze the street traffic. The players have to ensure that snow removal be performed as well as to provide an adequate number of snowplows. But snow is not only a difficulty; it can also be used to build new kinds of parks and special buildings. All of the above options and structures are available on the new winter-themed map.

Moreover, the players can make use of an enhanced system of collective transport management. Thanks to this, it's now easier to control bus routes and set all options connected to them. However, the biggest novelty is the introduction of the long-awaited trams, which complement the list of the available means of public transportation.
