Store: Expansion

Snowfall is a DLC which is the second expansion for Cities: Skylines and was released on 2016-02-20[1] alongside the 1.3 patch. Snowfall is also avaliable with the Nintendo Switch Edition of Cities Skylines for free, built into the game as well as the After Dark DLC.

Official Description[edit | edit source]

Snowfall is the second expansion to Cities: Skylines, the award-winning city-building game from Colossal Order. In Snowfall, players’ cities will be covered in snow or glisten in the rain thanks to a new in-game weather system, while their civic expertise is tested by the new challenges of running a city when the temperature falls. Snowplows will clear the streets, heating systems will run from home to home, and new trams will shuttle citizens about town in an improved public transit interface. All of these features will keep players on their toes – while their cities twinkle in the snow under new weather visuals.

Features[edit | edit source]

Snowfall is, as the name suggests, focused on the impact of winter weather on cities. Features include:
