Cities: Skylines - Snowfall

Snowfall is the second expansion to Cities: Skylines, the award-winning city-building
game from Colossal Order. In Snowfall, players’ cities will be covered in snow or
glisten in the rain thanks to a new in-game weather system, while their civic expertise
is tested by the new challenges of running a city when the temperature falls.
Snowplows will clear the streets, heating systems will run from home to home, and
new trams will shuttle citizens about town in an improved public transit interface. All
of these features will keep players on their toes – while their cities twinkle in the snow
under new weather visuals.

Main Features:


Now is the Winter of This Content:

Rain and fog for existing maps, plus a new “Winter” map theme with snow and all of its challenges

The Streetcars You Desire:

Expanded public transportation options, including easier management of existing lines – and Trams, a new system demanded by fans

World Warmth, Too:

Cold weather increases demands for electricity, unless new water-based heat systems are in place

Plowers to the People:

Build a snowplow depot to keep traffic flowing during winter weather, and employ new road maintenance systems to keep your streets in shape

New Chirps:

  • Cities: Skylines - Snowfall is a good expansion for dedicated fans of the city builder genre who have seen everything that the core game and the After Dark expansion have to offer regarding gameplay.

  • With more pronounced effects than the first expansion, Snowfall adds new challenges and complexity.

  • Winter can be miserable, but Snowfall is a worthwhile addition to the finest city builder available.

  • There’s a lot more to love here in Snowfall than there was in the slightly meagre After Dark, and from a visual standpoint alone it’s almost worth the price of entry just to build a winter wonderland.

  • Cities: Skylines just keeps getting better. Thanks to lots of dedicated fans and modders, and the official After Dark and Snowfall expansions, the game offers endless fun and creativity.

  • Well executed expansion to Colossal’s city builder that adds nice new elements, but doesn’t implicate them on all maps.

  • Snowfall is a generally well executed if rather mistimed expansion to Cities: Skylines, allowing you to build expansive cryogenic creations but unfortunately doesn’t go far enough in terms of providing a wintertide chill to truly remember.

  • For me, Snowfall will definitely be sticking around on my PC, but more as a feature I’ll dip into from time to time, rather than a permanent installation.

  • With the addition of Snowfall on top of the After Dark expansion released last fall, Cities: Skylines is starting to take shape as an expansive city-building franchise that offers something for any wannabe mayor. One caveat here is that you don’t really get a tremendous amount of content, and that what's present is pretty much relegated in specific maps, leaving the impact of this expansion on the overall game fairly minimal. That said, the winter wonderland atmosphere does freshen up the visuals so even while this expansion is not essential, spending a little time in a virtual snow globe city remains awfully appealing.

  • The continuous development of Cities: Skylines is very promising, confirmed now not only by mods made by the players, but also thanks to another official expansion. Snowfall turns out to be much better than After Dark and offers a wide range of new capabilities, all well-thought-out and satisfying.

  • CD-Action

    Snowfall introduces more new features than After Dark did, but I wish it had avoided some silliness (I based the economy of my subarctic city mostly on agriculture). [04/2016, p.53]

  • It’s truly an impressive circus act, both playing and developing Skylines, and Snowfall is yet another example of Colossal Order flexing its muscles.

  • The snowy setting is fascinating, but this expansion runs out of new stuff to do really quickly.

  • Every addition that Snowfall makes is fun and adds a bit of variety to your city-building. But those additions are few, and even the more sweeping systems like road condition and heating don’t add any long-term strategic considerations to the game. Even the new winter cities are a mostly visual change. It’s tough to recommend dropping money on such an insubstantial expansion.

  • LEVEL (Czech Republic)

    It seems that winter caught the developers somehow unprepared. A set of new features is mostly a cosmetic add. Although the snowy town looks nice, you probably appreciate the presence of the tram more. [Issue#262]

  • Quotation forthcoming.
