If you’re a fan of city building video games, you’ll be pleased to learn that Cities: Skylines will launch on the Xbox One on April 21 (via Windows Central). The game is already available to pre-order on the Xbox Store and will cost you $39.99. While that seems a bit expansive compared to the $29.99 standard PC version, this Xbox One Edition also includes the game’s first expansion called After Dark which adds a day-night lifecycle to the gameplay.
