You are the virtual mayor and as such, you will need to find the right balance between economic development for your city, public transportation, housing, social services, leisure activities and even special events in town. Realism has been pushed a little bit deeper with larger cities, more realistic and more sophisticated than ever before!

Widen your horizon!
Cities XL 2011 pushes its limits further: hundreds of new buildings and structures appear for a total of more than 700 constructions, leading the way for new building and combinations options never seen before in a City Builder. Many new maps are also available, for a total of 45 buildable maps. City management offers the full experience thanks to the addition of public transportation (subway, bus) which decongests downtown traffic while lowering pollution levels and increasing the population's satisfaction. A more elaborated tax system lets all apprentice mayors adjust personal and local business taxes.
