Prepare for the worst as Cities: Skylines Natural Disasters is announced

'That's a nice city you have there. It'd be a shame if something were to happen to it.'


Paradox Interactive has announced it will be completely setting all of our towns ablaze when Cities: Skylines’ Natural Disasters expansion releases.

Natural Disasters will feature a plethora of ways to challenge would-be mayors to keep their city calm when a large-scale disaster hits. Players can plan with an early-warning system, emergency routes, and caring for the populace as they attempt to rebuild what was lost. Disasters can occur unexpectedly during play, or they can manually be triggered by mayors who have just about had it with their unappreciative citizens.

The new expansion will also introduce a new scenario editor and gameplay mode, which will finally allow mayors to win or lose the game on their own terms. Custom challenges can be designed and shared through Steam Workshop, allowing other mayors to attempt to complete them.

Since its release, Cities: Skylines has received two additional expansions and a number of smaller updates, which includes After Dark and Snowfall. The title even helped a couple learn their potential home would be a dangerous investment.

Cities: Skylines Natural Disasters is scheduled to release this winter on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs.
