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.
Now is the Winter of This Content: Rain and fog for existing maps, plus a new “Winter” map theme with snow and all of its challenges
The Streetcars You Desire: Expanded public transportation options, including easier management of existing lines – and Trams, a new system demanded by fans
World Warmth, Too: Cold weather increases demands for electricity, unless new water-based heat systems are in place
Plowers to the People: Build a snowplow depot to keep traffic flowing during winter weather, and employ new road maintenance systems to keep your streets in shape New Chirps: #yeahthereare
This is a pretty nifty addon to add to Cities: Skylines. Just like with most Paradox games and DLCs, a considerable part of it is added for free, but the most interesting half is paid. This addon effectively increases the difficulty of the game as well, due to the problems that can arise from what it adds. The main additions are, as the name suggests, snowing, a weather system, having to deal with snow and air-conditioners( I guess). It is actually realistic with its price when it is on sale, which feels like the situation with every Paradox DLC.
Like the previous DLC a small part of the addon we get for free, the rest is paid, but in my opinion, the amount of content is well worth the price. Although it's worth to mention that Snowfall is rather a DLC for the enthusiasts of this game, people who actually love it. What do we get is weather system, snowfall, snow plows, some new urban regulations, cooling and heating systems, increased morbidity and overall slightly increased difficulty of the game. Quite interesting.
Cities Skylines was... Okay, a respectable effort for creating another alternative for Simcity but not a solid one, however, as with any game, fresh contents most likely will keep the game alive, and you can say that about Snowfall downloadable content, it's quality is impressive, the snow is designed with not exaggerating rate, so the amount of snow will most likely let you feel comfortable, However I think that such add-on was more appropriate with the Sims, since you are controlling a limited number of population, the snow part will be more observable as you will do most of your gaming time with a close-up view, in Cities Skylines you are rarely playing in a close-up view so watching the whole city with big amounts of snow drops maybe will get you distracted from keeping any eye on your city.
