Game Features Include:
-- 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.
