COLOGNE, GERMANY — August 14, 2012 — Paradox Interactive, a company that's never too proud to ride the bus, is pleased to announce at Gamescom the upcoming release of Cities in Motion 2 for Windows PC and Mac. Building and expanding on the original Cities in Motion transit simulation game, Cities in Motion 2 has a wealth of new features for both first-time digital travelers and regular computer commuters, including the addition of both co-operative and competitive multiplayer modes. The publisher intends to release the game in Q2, 2013, so customers should allow for increased internet congestion during rush hour.
Cities in Motion 2 is a transit simulation strategy game, where players are responsible for creating efficient, effective, and affordable public transportation systems for some of the world's most famous cities. By refining and implementing designs for their transit networks, ambitious urban engineers will guide their cities to growth and prosperity while upgrading and maintaining many different vehicle fleets, from buses to ferries to subways.
Growing, dynamic cities with picturesque day-and-night cycles, which adapt to affordable transit with new housing and commercial development
More vehicles and design options, including roads with dedicated bus lanes and player-managed timetables for transit systems
New multiplayer game modes, allowing players to co-design the city of their dreams – or compete for the renown of their citizens
