Disasters Crash Into A City Skyline Near You

I love the cities that I build in Cities: Skylines. They are pretty, they have many wonderful lights and gorgeous buildings. Yet some strange urge tells me that it would all look much better if only their was a crater right in the middle of the financial district. The latest update, which is now out, is able to fill this void. Check out the trailer below:



We covered the impending release of this expansion a little while ago, in each of those I managed to contain my excitement.
