We built this city across two years.

Cities: Skylines, the city-building sim that snatched up SimCity's fumbled ball in 2015 and quickly dunked it, turns two today. It's sold 3.5 million copies since launch.

Paradox noted Skylines' birthday on its blog, where it dished out an additional surprise: The game is getting some free DLC soon. Look forward to a set of three in-game buildings "inspired by Chinese architecture."

Cities Skylines Snowfall Tests the Limits of the Word "Expansion"

Colossal Order drops Cities: Skylines' second expansion, but there's a feeling that it could've ended up being so much more.

"From the first day Cities: Skylines was released, it’s been breaking records," says Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. "The game had our biggest launch in history at the time, selling 250.000 copies in its first 24 hours, and the community has only gotten bigger and more devoted over the last two years."

If you haven't visited your city (or cities) in a while, now's a good time to get in there and do a little roadwork. Winter's almost over. All those potholes. Shudder.

Cities: Skylines is available on PC, OSX, Linux, and Xbox One.
