You have a born mayor on your feet who can win such a competition! So seasoned players like Biffa Plays Indie Games, quill18, RTGame or The Spiffing Brit will compete in the six trials. We can see who can reduce traffic most effectively in 30 minutes by introducing bike paths and it also sheds light on the simulation hero who can save his city from an incoming asteroid. The six-hour match will be shown on Red Bull Gaming Twitch and YouTube channels on August 21 at 6pm Hungarian time.
Red Bull Metropolis, a leading event within its category, offers another way for cities: Skylines fans to enjoy the game while following in the footsteps of Red Bull eSports like the Red Bull Solo Q League of Legends or CS:GO focused on Red Bull Flick.
