Cities: Skylines' next expansion, Natural Disasters, will be released on the 29th November.

Fans have been expecting this for some time, with disasters having become a staple of the city-building genre thanks to SimCity.

We've played this expansion ourselves, briefly, and you can take a look at the video below to see the game's new tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, lightning storms, forest fires and meteor strikes in action.

These disasters can either be summoned at will, or enabled to periodically appear while you're playing in Sandbox mode. There's also a range of new building types which either provide warning of upcoming disasters, limit the damage they may cause, or help survivors in the immediate aftermath.

Alongside this DLC, which costs Ł10.99, Cities: Skylines will also receive a free update adding a new scenario editor. This allows players to create and share custom scenarios via the Steam Workshop, with set objectives like earning a certain amount of money, reaching a population goal, or creating a city that only uses public transport.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
