Those Nords are at it again, trying to corner the CityBuilder market. Next week Tuesday, the Finland-based Colossal Order will release its latest creation: Cities: Skylines. The game is getting published by the Sweden-based Paradox Interactive and is set to be the latest competition to the controversial 2013-released SimCity. Although still a pre-order, it’s the top seller right now on Steam Store.
The game starts priced at $29.99 on Steam Store, but two digitally authorized retailers are launching discounts ahead of next week’s release. Green Man Gaming has it as part of their “VIP Gaming Sale” where the better 27% discount can be had once you login or create an account on this page. Also notable is a 25% off coupon at DL Gamer.
