Developer: Colossal Order

Publisher: Paradox Interactive

Genres: Simulation, Strategy

In one of the most in-depth expansions in Cities: Skylines history, Industry becomes a larger and more meaningful part of the game with this expansion. Players can customize their industrial areas with supply chains for the four different resource types and unique factories. Well managed industry areas will level up and become more efficient. Aside from production chains, there is a new city service for handling mail and the cargo airport eases import and export of factory goods. There are FIVE new maps, new policies, new city services, new buildings (including resource extractors, manufacturers, warehouses and unique factories) and more. Key Features: MAKE IT HAPPEN Follow your products from harvesting to processing, storage and production, then transport them to commercial zones or export to other cities. CAPTAIN YOUR OWN INDUSTRIES Define an area with the industry area tool and place highly specialized industrial buildings to build and manage the production chain from raw material extraction up to final end product. Industry Areas are divided into four types based on the natural resource they are processing: Farming, Forest, Ore and Oil. These areas can level up upon reaching productions goals and staffing requirements. BUILD IT UP, BUTTERCUP New industrial buildings include Extractors, Warehouse Facilities, Processing and Auxiliary Buildings, Industrial Props and Roads. Unique Factories, such as Food, Toy, Furniture, Car and Electronics produce luxury products, and require a large number of workers, water and electricity as well as input from your industries. SHIP IT Manage traffic and logistics with industrial warehouses and the use of the new Cargo Services including a cargo airport. GO POSTAL Boost your citizens’ well-being with mail delivery and collection services. Post sorting facilities handle mail between outside connections and the post offices, and new Post Van and Truck vehicles enable the carriage. WONK HARD Three new Industry Policies and four City-wide Policies, including Workers’ Union, Sorting, Tolls, Wi-Fi, Logistics, Work Safety and Automation. FIVE NEW MAPS Rich in natural resources, transportation options and industrial opportunities, these new maps have all the right stuff. FOUR NEW HATS FOR CHIRPER!

Though I've got a fair few criticisms, Industries feels like a worthwhile addition to Cities: Skylines, taking a long overlooked side of the game's city building and adding a lot more depth and nuance.

Ultimately, this pack can make a player's city look the part of a modern capital trying to tread a difficult ethical line between industry and eco-friendly practices; it's just a shame that there isn't more of a progression and reward incentive for all players to properly interact with it.

Industries isn't the total economic overhaul it could have been, but it still brings plenty of fresh content to Cities: Skylines.
