Cities: Skylines Remastered Free Upgrade Brings New 'Map Editor' To Xbox Game Pass Today

We have a new Xbox Game Pass addition today, February 15th, although this new arrival is a little different to normal! Cities: Skylines Remastered comes to the service today as essentially an entirely new version of the city builder.

So, rather than an update to the existing version of this Xbox Game Pass title, Paradox Interactive is dropping a free remaster into the library. This new version includes 25 buildable tiles (an increase of 9 tiles from the 16 available in the Xbox One version), a more dynamic weather system, a whole new map editor and lots of other good stuff.

Here's a trailer showing the new remaster off, alongside a brief developer intro for Cities: Skylines Remastered on Xbox Game Pass.

Today we are proud to release Cities: Skylines Remastered, an enhanced edition for Xbox Series X|S that aims to provide a better optimized and more fun game experience for console players."
