Cities: Skylines is the ultimate city-builder that allows players to create and manage the city of their dreams. Today we are proud to release Cities: Skylines Remastered, an enhanced edition for Xbox Series X|S that aims to provide a better optimized and more fun game experience for console players.
We are thrilled to finally see Cities: Skylines Remastered release on Xbox Series X|S. We want console players to experience Cities: Skylines at its best, and we also want to give back to our supportive and caring community – this project is our love letter to you!
To start, we focused on delivering something that our console players kept asking us: more tiles. Cities: Skylines Remastered finally offers 25 buildable tiles – 16 more than the ones available on Xbox One. We also added a Quick selection tool, improved the User Experience by adding precision placements and distance indicators, and updated the snapping options.
We can’t wait for you to try the new environment coloring tool and the environmental controls panel. The latter allows you to adjust the time of day, so take the most beautiful in-game shots at dawn or sunset – your City will look amazing! But that’s not all, you can now manage atmospheric changes, controlling rain and fog as you please. Last but not least, we’re happy to give you the Map editor to create your own maps and use them in-game.
Thanks to the power of Xbox Series X|S we improved the overall graphics of Cities: Skylines Remastered. We hope you’ll be as amazed as we are to see how beautiful your cities will look now.
To celebrate this milestone for Cities: Skylines we wanted to go further. So, if you already have Cities: Skylines – or any other DLCs – on your Xbox Series X|S, the Remastered Edition of those same products will be available for you for free. We are working on adding the most recent expansions too, so stay tuned on Xbox for more news!

Cities: Skylines Main Features
Build the city of your dreams: plan road networks, bus lines and parks. Bring on a smog-filled industrial revolution or create a quiet beach town ideal for tourists powered by renewable energy. Bring education, healthcare and safety to your citizens. Build it your way!
• Multi-tiered and challenging simulation
Playing as the mayor of your city, you’ll be faced with balancing essential requirements such as education, water electricity, police, firefighting, healthcare and much more, along with your city’s economy. Citizens within your city react fluidly, keeping you on your toes with ever-evolving demands.
• Extensive local traffic simulation
Managing traffic and the needs of your citizens to work and play will require the use of several interactive transport systems – use careful road planning alongside buses, trains, subways, and much more.
• Districts and policies
Be more than just another city hall official! Create a car-free downtown area, assign free public transport to your waterfront, or ban pets in suburbia. Designate parts of your city as a district in order to set policy at the local level, and give different parts of town their own personalities.
• After Dark expansion included
Watch your city become an entirely different place at night: a day-night cycle will have your citizens seeking out places to unwind after work. Add in new policies and zones to create popular hotspots and provide enough taxis and trains to get to and from the clubs!
