Cities: Skylines’ Airports DLC Takes Off This January

Cities: Skylines Airports

Cities: Skylines’ Airports DLC will, as the name suggests, let you create your own airports in the city-building game.

Sounds like a great idea, right? In theory, yes, though given how much our own Cities: Skylines citizens have suffered from our incompetence we’re not sure we should be put in charge of an airport. Instead of just finding themselves knee deep in raw sewage, as they would on the ground, our passengers would have the additional problem of plummeting like a rock.

Still, in the hands of someone who can actually remember to fuel planes, Airports could be a lot of fun. Despite the aforementioned incompetence we still had a lot of fun with Cities: Skylines when we reviewed it, saying that it “offers nearly everything you could want from a city-building sim.” There have been multiple add-ons since then and Airports is just the latest.

Apart from just building an airport, you’ll also be able to manage how flyers get to the airport, where cargo terminals are and more. The one thing you can’t manage, unless Paradox is saving this for patch, is the airlines themselves. It’s a bit of a shame, we’d love to see just how much money SpewAir can nickel and dime passengers for, not that we’re taking inspiration from any real-world airlines.

Cities: Skylines’ Airports will require the full version of Cities: Skylines though it won’t be dependent on other downloadable content. It arrives this January 25th, 2022, arriving on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 for $12.99. You can check out the above trailer or wishlist the PC version on Steam.
