Paradox Interactive has announced that the final expansion for strategy title Cities: Skylines, ‘Hotels & Retreats,’ will be released on May 23rd, bringing an end to the game’s ‘World Tour.’ Along with the expansion, several Content Creator Packs will also be released on the same day, including the Brooklyn & Queens, Industrial Revolution and Railroads of Japan.
Mariina Hallikainen, CEO of Colossal Order said:“Revealing the last Cities: Skylines expansion and content packs is a bittersweet moment. Cities: Skylines has always been about empowering players to build the cities of their dreams, and the expansion and Content Creator Packs will provide the final tools and options to do just that,”
With “Hotels & Retreats,” players can start with a small hotel chain and work their way up to fancier and more luxurious establishments. Some of the key features of the expansion include:
Begin with budget-friendly one-star hotels and work your way up to more lavish establishments as your revenue and popularity grow in the Hotels & Retreats expansion for Cities: Skylines.
From hostels to cabins, to luxurious resorts, Cities: Skylines’ Hotels & Retreats expansion allows players to add a range of hotel buildings to their city, each with its own unique budget.
In addition to hotels, the Hotels & Retreats expansion introduces new supporting structures such as parks, restaurants, playgrounds, and cafes that enhance the experience for guests.
Strategic placement of hotels in different locations will be crucial since various locations attract different tourist groups. The expansion also introduces five new maps designed specifically for hotels, including three European-inspired maps, a tropical map, and a temperate map.
