Cities: Skylines Takes a Walk in the 'Parklife' DLC in May

Step away from the noisy metropolis by stepping into this latest park-themed expansion for Cities: Skylines.


Now that the suburbs and industrial districts are starting to flourish, the time has come to focus on building up those parklands. Cities: Skylines' next expansion is Parklife and it focuses on the neighborhood greenery.

Parklife introduces five new maps, along with a new park area tool that allows players to construct park districts along any empty plot of land. These parks can be kept looking spry with new Park Maintenance services that level up these new lands. Players can also add new assets, like sightseeing bus tours, amusement parks, nature reserves, and zoos. Even the empty spaces between buildings can be decorated with gardens, making it possible to build entire cities with zero wasted space.

For those who would rather not pony up the extra money for a new expansion, Cities: Skylines will receive a free update that adds a tourism panel, trees that can reduce noise pollution, a camera mode upgrade, new tourist models, and new modeling features.

Cities: Skylines - Parklife will release on PC on May 24. For more, visit the game's Steam page.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
