More On: Cities: Skylines

The best simulation and city building game since the harsh death of Simcity, Cities: Skylines, is getting a new DLC expansion on May 21st. The DLC called Campus launches on May 21st for $12.99.

Campus will introduce a large number of new "micro-management" features. You will be able to establish campuses with three different area types: Liberal Arts, Trade School, and University. The expansion will also allow you to manage five different college sports programs by building arenas, hiring coaches, and designing jerseys. You will be able to celebrate the academic achievements of your educational institution by building museums and holding graduation ceremonies. Five new maps will also be available for city building.

The expansion pack release will coincide with the release of a number of additional freebies, including two new radio stations, two new library buildings, a yellow school bus, industry policies, and job titles for citizens, in a free update coming to the game later this month.
