Cities: Skylines is Bringing its Creativity and Strategy to PS4

The award-winning city-builder launches later this year on PS4, including its "After Dark" expansion.

Hello, Players and Mayors! The team here at Paradox Interactive is delighted to announce that your demands have now become official city policy: we’re bringing our award-winning city-builder to your favorite console in Cities: Skylines – PlayStation 4 Edition!

At Paradox, strategy and creativity are the core of what we do, and judging from the amount of requests we’ve had to release Cities: Skylines on the PS4, they’re passions shared by this community as well. We’ve been hard at work making sure the roads are smooth and the turbines are tuned, so that everything is ready when you build your first city block — but rest assured, the game is looking and playing great on a controller. When you pull back and watch the sun rise over the bustling city you’ve built from the ground up, it’s going to look truly inspiring on the big screen.

There’s more to Cities: Skylines, of course, than just zoning districts and placing your roads into a neat grid (or using them to spell out your name). Want to build the all-green-energy and self-sustaining town of the future? Have a diabolical plan to build a dam across the river and funnel wastewater into your tourism district? We’ve even seen an entire town of services and infrastructure built around just one house! Cities: Skylines is a game all about setting up plans and policies to create a metropolis that’s uniquely your own, and we can’t wait to see what PlayStation players are capable of.

When the game arrives later this year, you’ll get not only a controller-friendly version of Cities: Skylines, but also the tourism and nightlife features from the After Dark expansion. Your thriving community will need some places to unwind once the sun goes down, after all. Please, though, make sure you put in enough taxis and trains to let them get home safely!

We’ll have more info soon on the launch, and then you’ll be able to find the game in the store of your choice, or download it directly from the PlayStation Store. Until then, brush up on your civic engineering and prepare your campaign speeches — the mayor’s office awaits!

  • First. Will the PS4 version of Cities: Skylines will get the expansion packs (Snowfall, Natural Disasters, and Mass Transit) in the future?

  • whatasandwich21

    Been waiting for this announcement for a year. Coupled with Tropico6, Surviving Mars, and Aven Colony. It’s going to be a good couple of years for city management fans.

  • Will this version use the touchpad on the ps4 controller?

    • This will probably be controller based, and will probably not use the touchpad in any meaningful way. However, the controls for console are fantastic and you will not get a lesser experience.

  • Great to hear that this is coming to PS4. I will wait a bit after release to see how good this was ported for console (UI, font, etc.) and how buggy. And what the price is…

    Will the Mass Transit expansion be available on PS4?

    • It is is built like the xbox one version, interface, UI and general controls feel great. I have built several cities and it runs like a dream. Cant wait to have this on my PS4 too. Its a great game and worth it for any fan of Sim City

    When I did a search on YouTube for this game, I found some long videos for the Steam version. It looks good to be sure.
    However if it doesn’t have a drive a vehicle option or walking avatar option, I might pass it by depending on price and comments by others.

  • It’s disappointing that noone from Paradox could be bothered to read or reply to anyone here.

  • I hope this is better than Big City Stories!
