The first add-on pack for Cities: Skylines II has now been released. The Beach Properties Asset Pack adds new items for those high-value (hopefully) waterfront properties.

Buyers of the DLC will get access to the following:

Waterfront Zone: A new residential zoning option dedicated to waterfront buildings allows you to redefine your city’s coastline.

Beach Properties: Each theme adds growable residential buildings waiting to populate your new waterfront zone, from luxurious waterfront mansions to charming beachside cottages.

Signature Waterfront Buildings: Tailored to fit into European or North American architectural themes, these signature buildings are crafted to highlight your city’s beachfront.

Beach Properties features 70 new assets, including:

  • 10 North American residential buildings with three levels (30 assets)
  • 10 European residential buildings with three levels (30 assets)
  • Six signature buildings
  • AND Four New trees

Beach Properties is also available as part of the Expansion Pass: Waterfronts, which is included in the Ultimate Edition.

Cities: Skylines II gets good pre-release reviews

Colossal Order and Paradox’ new iteration of the bestselling Cities: Skylines gets good grades from the reviewers who have got pre-release copies of Cities: Skylines II.

On the review aggregation site Metacritic the game now has a metascore of 77/100 based on 33 reviews and the site Opencritic lists it with also 77/100.

The first Cities: Skylines game was released in spring 2015 and is Paradox’ biggest hit yet with over 12 million copies sold. It has also had a steady release of DLC:s and a very healthy modder community.

Yesterday evening Cities: Skylines II was the fourth most wishlisted game on Steam and on their global list of sales it was on place ten.

Cities Skylines II is coming

The successor to Colossal Order’s and Paradox’s very well received city builder Cities Skylines is now officially revealed and even has a release date – October 24, 2023.

And from the look of it, it’s going to be gorgeous.
