"Academic Studies"

The Cities: Skylines experience is expanded upon with this latest DLC expansion add-on. This is a campus focused build where you’ll be able to expand education further than ever before. It goes quite in-depth, but it will take a fairly progressed city in order to access the content. I was expecting more of a standalone, but it makes sense I suppose. There are a pile of new buildings to create, and these help make your campus area special.

You’ll be able to create varsity sports arenas, set up dorms and make some specialty buildings as well as you unlock more content. This will fit into a defined area that you create zoning wise, and it works greatly. Paths are a part of this too, and the various structures connect to them. I went with the trees along the paths, makes sense if you’ve been on a campus before, they’re quite fancy and luxurious in design.

I had fun expanding my city area, but be prepared for it taking a large portion of your land as the structures are expansive in their space filling. You do get to create a lively place, and manage some elements of it.

I felt they could have taken some of the smaller aspects of the post-secondary experience a bit further. It was fine as is, still would have been best for smaller management options. The buildings are all detailed, and should delight once you get some crazy stadiums going on.

The Conclusion

Campus Expansion for Cities: Skylines brings a neat upgrade for the game, providing a fresh large scale spot for creation. There are a number of structures to unlock, and then place upon various special paths. The location matters, there’s just a lot of massive things to build along the way.

The campus life brings some new ways to experience the educational system. I’m sure fans will enjoy something new to expand on the existing structures. It’s alright, I had fun working towards getting access to this and then unlocking the various new buildings. It is a bit of a hurdle to get to however, be wary of that.
