"Natural Disasters," the much awaited downloadable content  (DLC) for "Cities: Skylines" — the city building simulation game from developer Colossal Order and publisher Paradox Interactive —  is now well on its way for release, and will soon become available in the market in a matter of days.

"Natural Disasters features a catalog of catastrophes to challenge mayor-players everywhere, including planning with early warning systems and emergency routes, devastating and destructive disaster effects, and caring for the populace as they struggle to rebuild," read Paradox Interactive's description for the expansion.

Just as the name implies, the upcoming DLC for "Cities: Skylines" will allow players to bring total chaos to the city they've built. With the "Natural Disasters" expansion, they can now summon the strong forces of Mother Nature to devastate the land. Some examples that have already been revealed in the past are: tsunamis, earthquakes, forest fires, tornadoes, and even worse, a massive meteor strike.

Fortunately, it appears like these aren't the only natural disasters that fans can choose from in the latest city building simulation game DLC. Sinkholes and thunderstorms have also been added, as can be seen in the latest developer diary that Paradox Interactive has posted on YouTube a few days back.

The "Cities: Skylines" "Natural Disasters" expansion is coming out alongside a new patch for all the players in the game that will introduce a Steam Workshop-based scenario editor, according to PC Gamer.

"Previously we have had just a sandbox mode, but the scenario editor makes it so the players can create scenarios that have actual goals—they have winning conditions, losing conditions," revealed Colossal Order in the Developers Diary clip above from YouTube.

Sandra Neudinger — Paradox's Brand Manager — added, "Natural Disasters is aimed [at] the people who need more challenge."

The "Cities: Skylines" DLC called "Natural Disasters" is now scheduled to come to the Windows PC, Mac, and Linux platforms on Tuesday, Nov. 29 for $14.99 USD.
