Just as players put the finishing touches on their perfect cities, Paradox Interactive has added a new expansion to obliterate your virtual citizens. Cities: Skylines' new Natural Disasters DLC adds a variety of catastrophic events to the game, including earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, and meteors.

An extra challenge mode has been added as well, pitting players against the worst doomsday scenarios, or edit their own to torture their friends with. It's not entirely one-sided though, as new features such as a radio broadcast system and various disaster countermeasures are part of the package as well.

Those of you who want to face nature's wrath can buy the new expansion now for $14.99, or check out our review of the base game here.

Our Take
City-building sims are easy to lose thousands of hours in already, but this extra add-on seems to be for the most masochistic of fans. It won't be long before we see people crying on streams about how their beautiful city was decimated by a combination tornado, earthquake, and flood disaster.
