This is on top of "a multitude of smaller cosmetic additions" and bug fixes. The full patch notes are available to read here.
Brand manager Jakob Munthe also explained Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order's strategy for content updates going forward, saying it would continue to deliver free updates.
"Cities: Skylines will continue to follow the traditions set by other recent Paradox releases such as Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis IVof paid expansions combined with large updates of free content ensuring that all players, whether they choose to purchase the expansions or not, will have plenty of new features to look forward to," said Munthe.
"One of the major differences, however, between those titles and Cities: Skylines will be that minor DLC updates will be uncommon. The majority of content updates will be significant upgrades and additions."
Continuing, Munthe said the game's creators will give away main features for free and improve modding tools, while selling bigger expansions that introduce new mechanics.
In April, Paradox Interactive announced Cities: Skylines had sold more than 1 million copies.
