Highrise City, the major simulator, launched as early access on Steam. After eight years of development, we finally have the game. The details in this game are mind-boggling, even for early access. Without further ado, let’s start to give the details about Highrise City.
Highrise City is a city builder economy simulator with resource management and production chains to build an ever-growing city. The game is being developed by Fourexo Entertainment, which is a small indie developer located in Germany and published by Deck13. The game is in early access and was initially launched on March 24, 2022. Since its announcement trailer back in May 2021, the game has gotten a ton of attention from city-building fans. Well, what were the biggest features that attracted the attention of these city-building fans?
Highrise City Gameplay
Speaking of a major simulator is not an exaggeration. Let’s say you are building a factory. You should have to keep a count on almost everything. What will be the effects on the environment and the people living around it? Also, how much will it cost, and is it necessary? And these questions are just the tip of the iceberg.
Research is another vital aspect of the game. You will need to do research to build a complex structure for energy production, living spaces, and transportation. For instance, you can use your research points on the Road Grid. This will allow you to build one more road. Another example is building Nuclear Power Plant to have more efficient and pollution-free energy production.
The interface is surprisingly simple, even when counting the details of the game. You will be able to build your city on three maps. These are New York, Capetown, and Rio.
On a final note, the game’s first update is scheduled for the end of April. The update will include a building editor, which will probably ease your progress.
Highrise City is in early access and is now available on Steam for $24.99. The game has a launch 15% discount until March 31, 2022. The soundtrack package is also available for $9.99. We are very excited about Highrise City. Be sure to check it out if you are a city-building sim fan.
