Plazas and Promenades is the 11th expansion pack for Cities: Skylines. It was announced on 2022-08-22 and was released on 2022-09-14 alongside the Seaside Resorts and Mid-Century Modern CCPs, as well as the Shoreline Radio and Paradise Radio music pack DLCs.
Take the next step with Plazas and Promenades.
Say Goodbye to noise and air pollution and Hello to pedestrian streets, carfree areas, and modern plazas. It’s time to level up your Cities with this environment-friendly expansion!
Pedestrian Streets: Let your citizens walk freely on pedestrian-only streets! Place them in your city like any other road and create new green city centers free of most vehicles and noise pollution.
Pedestrian Zones and new Policies: Activate three zone-specific policies for your city including:
Slow Driving: all roads in the pedestrian zone, except highways, get a speed limit of 20 miles/hour.
Sugar Ban: increases the average lifespan of citizens in the pedestrian zone but decreases their happiness.
Street Music: increases happiness and noise pollution in pedestrian commercial zones.
Deliver Everything: all buildings within area get cargo and garbage service via service points even if not on pedestrian roads.
District Specialization: We added 3 new district specializations: offices, high-density residential areas, and high-density commercial zones. Setting a specialization on a district affects all zoned squares in that district that will spawn buildings with a different visual appearance and a gameplay effect. Each specialization features 24 new modern wall-to-wall buildings!
City service buildings: Service buildings are important, but how about awesome-looking service buildings? Connect them to pedestrian zones by matching their visual style and provide services that contribute to good happiness values (one of the main metrics of a successful pedestrian zone).
Achievements: Three new achievements.
