Store: Expansion

After Dark was the first expansion DLC for Cities: Skylines, and it was released on 2015-09-24.[1]

In After Dark, players' cities will go from day to night and back again, and their bustling burgs will look – and behave – differently. New leisure-focused commercial areas will become popular nightspots, with citizens flocking to nightclubs, karaoke bars, and other downtown destinations when their day is done. During the day, newly popular beachfront properties will do big business, including beach restaurants, jetski rentals, and more. For citizens who have a little too much fun, the addition of prisons will sort things out – while new taxi mechanics will help nighttime revelers get around efficiently and safely. After Dark is included with the Nintendo Switch Edition of Cities Skylines for free, as well as the Snowfall DLC.

Expansion features[edit | edit source]

  • Leisure and Luxury: Nightclubs, restaurants, bowling alleys, and other new leisure areas will become especially active at night
  • Commercial specializations added: Leisure and Tourism
  • Service with a Smile: New city services will transport criminals from police stations to prisons, while cargo hubs and international airports will allow industry and tourism to expand and thrive
