Gamma 40 (14 December 2020)
This update for Mini Metro is designed to give players a new city to explore, new challenges and achievements to master, and general maintenance to keep the metro lines in tip-top shape and bug-free!
In this update to Mini Metro, one of the USA's most historic transit networks is in player’s hands!
· Take charge of the 'L' and keep Chicago's commuters moving! Will you recreate the iconic downtown Loop or design something entirely new?
· The ever-popular Daily Challenge will feature this new content with the introduction of Chicago, as the collection of maps in Mini Metro grows to twenty five.
Gamma 39 (27 October 2020)
Mini Metro is moving on down the line to two new destinations!
First up, design and maintain a network covering the megacity of Lagos, Nigeria. Can you keep the 21 million residents of Africa's biggest city moving on time?
Then hop over the Atlantic to Chile to help get the commuters of Santiago to their destinations. Nestled among the snow-capped Andes, this South American metropolis needs your expert planning hand.
We have a major feature update coming soon, plus another map update later this year, so keep your eyes peeled!
Gamma 38 (20 November 2018)
We've got a new mode for you! Creative mode lets you take any existing maps and build your dream metro. Here is what's new:
- Add, delete, and reshape stations, as well as control how busy they get. No more circle stations everywhere!
- Unlimited locomotives, carriages, and interchanges.
- All lines start unlocked.
- An increased per-line locomotive limit.
It's all up to you. Build your home town's network in meticulous detail, make a massive city with an equally large fleet of trains, or construct geometric patterns and record looping gifs.
We'd love to see what you come up with!

Gamma 36 (26 April 2018)
Get ready for a leap back in time as we revisit some iconic metro maps of the past!
- London, 1960: Nearly 30 years since his revolutionary first map, Harry Beck created his last vision of the underground in 1960.
- New York City, 1972: Inspired by the iconic London map, Massimo Vignelli produced this modernist interpretation of the MTA.
- Paris, 1937: In contrast to the sleek modern design, the elegant Seine dances through Paris in this pre-war map.
Deliver 1000 passenger in normal or extreme mode on any of these cities to unlock their alternate maps.
