Publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Colossal Order have announced yet another new expansion for their popular city-builder Cities: Skylines, dubbed Green Cities.

Arriving sometime later this year, Green Cities will enable mayors to create sustainable cities, complete with organic stores, electric vehicles, and new services to mitigate pollution.

The expansion is said to add 350 new assets to the core game, including a massive selection of new visual options, such as eco-friendly buildings. Players can opt to create more diversified cities, or go completely green as the urban population grows.

There will also be new scenarios, new policy options, a new monument, and new specialized options for all city-zones, including leveled-up specializations for the first time.

According to the pair, the expansion will run at $12.99 USD when it hits PC, Mac, and Linux later this year digitally.

Cities: Skylines — which as of earlier this year (before its launch on PS4 and Xbox One) has sold an impressive 3.5 million copies — is available on PC, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux. There is currenlty no word on Green Cities coming to either console version.

Below, you can check out a new trailer which accompanied the expansion’s announcement, as well as some green debut screenshots:
