Xbox One Getting SimCity-Inspired Cities: Skylines
The acclaimed city builder will make its console debut on Xbox One.
The city-building game, which is heavily inspired by the SimCity series, was released originally on PC in March. It will make its console debut on Xbox One, but its release date has yet to be announced. It's one of the first games that publisher Paradox has brought to consoles. The studio also brought Magicka 2 to PlayStation 4, but otherwise it has only worked on games for PC.

Since its original release, Cities: Skylines has sold very well. After only a month, the game had passed a million copies sold. It did so well, in fact, that developer Paradox has been "surprised" by the game's success. Skylines has also been supported by free DLC, including maps and buildings.
We thought that the original PC version was terrific. You can read our review from real-life mayor Brett Todd here, who says, "There is no better way to take a peek at life as a mayor without filing your papers to run for office in the real world."
