Cities: Skylines - Industries Adds New Achievements, Free Gift for All Players

Rebecca Smith - June 19th 2019

Building a successful city isn't just about keeping its residents amused. A city needs to be commercially successful, and the latest Cities: Skylines DLC pack, Industries, gives players more options to bring trade into their creations by allowing them to designate special industry areas and add specialised buildings, as well as earn new achievements.

Industries adds six new achievements worth a total of 90 Gamerscore, none of which are secret.
Name Description Gamerscore
Full Capacity Level up an Industry Area up to Level 5 20
Industry Tycoon Build all Unique Factories 30
Offshore Assets Build five Offshore Oil Drilling Platforms 5
Postman Deliver 1 000 000 units of Mail 15
Scaling Up Build 10 Warehouse buildings 10
Serial Investor Build 10 Industry Areas 10
The DLC adds a new Industry Area Tool that allows players to customise industrial areas with different factories. They can set up supply chains for any of the four different resources available in the game, and areas that are well managed will become far more efficient and profitable. Other new features include a postal service and a cargo airport. You can find a full list of new features in the spoiler below.
