Hotels and Retreats, the final expansion for the beloved simulation game, was released today alongside Industrial Evolution, Railroads of Japan, and Brooklyn and Queensland Content Creator Packs.

Developed by Colossal Order, Cities: Skylines was published in 2015 by Paradox Interactive, and has been extremely popular with fans of city builders. In March, Paradox announced that the game’s sequel, Cities: Skylines II, would be released in Summer 2023.

Mariina Hallikainen, CEO of Colossal Order, said: “Looking back on the incredible journey of Cities: Skylines, it’s clear to see that it has become more than just a game. It's a community of passionate and creative individuals who have built intricate and magnificent cities with their own unique visions.

“Hotels and Retreats is the last expansion for Cities: Skylines and celebrates its legacy by introducing ways for players to express their creativity.”

The Hotels and Retreats expansion brings multiple new elements to the game, including:

Hotel Buildings: The new expansion will add hostels, cabins, hotels, and luxurious resorts for a range of budgets.

Hotel Management: Players start with one-star hotels and unlock new options as their business and popularity grows.

Tourism Buildings: New structures, including parks, restaurants, playgrounds, and cafès will be added.

Location: The expansion added five new maps including three European-inspired maps, one tropical map, and one temperate map. Different locations will attract different types of tourists.
