Cities Skylines 2: First Gameplay Trailer shows big visual leap ahead of Oct 24th release!
The trailer looks uplifting after all: Paradox Interactive shows real gameplay for the first time from the upcoming Cities Skylines 2, which will be ready on October 24th 2023. You can also pre-order the game today!
For those who love virtual city building, Cities Skylines has been the best gaming experience of the genre in recent years. Not least, it was the constant content expansions and the industrious mod community that ensured that the title never ran out of light - the increasing complexity and the enormous variety of functions were guarantees for constant success.
Cities Skylines 2 builds on the same recipe, but aims even higher in terms of visuals and content. Paradox' new gameplay trailer shows: Cities Skylines 2 looks much better and more realistic than its predecessor, starting with small apartment buildings and ending with skyscrapers. Cities will feel even more alive as all the inhabitants and residents of a city go about their daily tasks - including relationships, jobs and so on. Feast your eyes on the stunning video below (for best results view in fullscreen and 4k):
In terms of complexity, the developers have probably gone one better for Cities Skylines 2. You build city districts specifically in biomes, optimise traffic routes and energy networks and face the demands of dynamic maps with different climates. Your decisions in Cities Skylines 2 have an effect on the living conditions and the satisfaction of city dwellers - you can also follow this visually. If the interaction of all city districts with the infrastructure runs smoothly, your small city will gradually grow into a large metropolis. Mariina Hallikainen, CEO of the developer studio Colossal Order, says:
Cities: Skylines 2 is the most immersive, visually stunning and complex city builder ever. We are giving players an unprecedented level of freedom to manage their population and city, with every decision having a significant impact on its citizens. Players can realise their vision of an urban utopia like never before, using tools to control every key aspect of city planning and watch their photorealistic metropolis grow block by block.
