CITIES: SKYLINES Will Feature Natural Disasters Soon on Consoles

The task of building and managing a city is pretty much complicated in itself. The sense of pride that players feel when they see their quaint towns develop into a vast metropolis with the perfect transport system and happy citizens. However, it’s also fun to watch that city go up in flames and crumble before our very eyes. 

The PC version of Cities: Skylines have implemented tons of doomsday scenarios a few years back. However, console players can now join in the fun as the PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions of the game will receive a new expansion called Natural Disasters on May 15. 

If Natural Disasters on consoles will be similar to the PC version, then players can expect multiple doomsday scenarios that range from earthquakes, thunderstorms, tsunamis, forest fires, tornadoes, sinkholes, and meteors. In addition, players can also play as the hero by planning for a disaster using early warning systems or respond to chaos with helicopters and organizing evacuations. Currently, Natural Disasters is priced at $15 on Steam, so it is expected that the console version will be the same or close to that price. You can check out the latest trailer for Cities: Skylines Natural Disasters below. 

How will you bring chaos to your city? Although not a natural disaster, I'm hoping to see a viral outbreak option included in the game. I mean, who doesn’t want a simulation of the Raccoon City incident? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
