City building sim Cities: Skylines is getting a PS5 version next week, on the 15th February. This is an enhanced remaster of the 2017 PS4 title, boasting a number of improvements — and it's a free upgrade if you already own Cities: Skylines on the last-gen console. The same goes for the game's numerous DLC packs; if you own them on PS4, you get them on PS5 at no additional cost.
Anyway, here are the new features, as per the official press release:
- 25 buildable tiles – that’s 16 additional tiles from Cities: Skylines on PlayStation®4!
- Quick selection tool
- UX Improvements, such as precision placements, distance indicator and updated snapping options
- New environmental controls panel allowing players to adjust time of day, rain, fog, and environment colouring
- Map editor
- An overall graphic performance increase
The title's generally regarded as a rock solid sim. It's fairly accessible, as far as the genre goes, and you can spend hours just observing and tweaking your creations, once you've got things up and running.
