Transport Simulator Cities in Motion Released

Cities in Motion sees players develop and operate their own public transport company building a travel network across Vienna, Berlin, Helsinki and Amsterdam using more than 30 different modes of transport including buses, trams, subway trains and water buses.

As each city develops and grows the player must continue to meet the ever changing transport needs of its commuters, while at the same time ensuring it remains as profitable as possible.

Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order Ltd have announced that Cities in Motion, a mass public transportation simulator, has released Tuesday, Feb. 22, on PC with a recommended retail price of $19.99/€19.99.

“We are very excited about this release as there’s been a gap in this genre since games like Traffic Giant were released and early gamer feedback seems to indicate Cities in Motion can fill that gap” said Mattias Lilja, executive producer for Paradox Interactive.
