  • Day-and-night cycle: The central focus of After Dark is the day-and-night cycle, which affect the behavior of the citizens. Traffic becomes slower, and some zoned areas work below full efficiency. This feature will be added in a free update.[2][3]
  • Leisure specialization: Commercial areas may specialize in leisure activities, which are considerably more active at night but work like a regular commercial area during the day.[2]
  • Beach specialization: Commercial areas located near the shoreline may specialize in beach activities, such as beach bars and restaurants.[2]
  • Expanded city services: City services have newly added features, such as taxi services, cargo hubs, international airports, and bus terminals. Additionally, criminals will now be taken from the police stations to the prisons. [2]
  • New transportation options: Bikes and bike lanes and ways allow citizens to choose an alternative to walking. Bus lanes are provided near bus stops, allowing traffic to run smoother.[2]
