And there's a new gameplay trailer to celebrate.

Cities: Skylines' new aviation-focused expansion, Airports, is out today, 25th January, on PC and consoles, and publisher Paradox Interactive is preparing for take off with a new gameplay trailer and news of an accompanying customisation-focused free update.

As its name suggests, Airports - which is Cities: Skylines' tenth major expansion, following on from After Dark, Snowfall, Natural Disasters, Mass Transit, Green Cities, Parklife, Industries, Campus, and Sunset Harbour - gives budding urban planners the tools needed to create and manage their own air-focused transportation hubs.

That includes a steadily expanding selection of modular airport building options, cargo terminals, and connected public transport - and you'll see a fair number of Airports' new features in action in the newly released gameplay trailer below.
