Cities XL is a city building simulation game in the mold of Sim City. The game has both offline and online mode, with the online version requiring a small monthly fee. The game is really deep in its features and there’s a thousand things players can do. Players can choose to start their city near the sea, in the desert, grass plains and more. There will be various locations to choose from. Ambitious players can even start off building a small farming community, and extend the roads to a new area to build a modern day city.
Having tried the game personally during its earlier beta test phases, the learning curve is steep, but once you get the hang of it, you’re on your way to become an online city mayor~!
Here are some screenshots of the game.
