The developer, Colossal Order, has released the first gameplay trailer for the sequel, and it showcases some of the new features and improvements that will make Cities: Skylines II the most realistic and immersive city builder ever.
What’s New in Cities: Skylines II?
Cities: Skylines II promises to take the city building genre to the next level with a fully realized 3D engine that allows you to zoom in and out of your city, rotate and tilt the camera, and explore every detail of your creation. You can also customize the look and feel of your city with a variety of themes, styles, and assets, from modern skyscrapers to historical landmarks.
But Cities: Skylines II is not just about aesthetics. It also challenges you to manage the complex systems and dynamics that make a city function, such as traffic, public transport, water, electricity, pollution, crime, education, health, and more. You will have to balance the needs and wants of your citizens, as well as deal with natural disasters, economic crises, and other events that can affect your city.
Cities: Skylines II also introduces some new gameplay mechanics that will add more depth and variety to your city building experience. For example, you can now create districts and assign policies to them, such as banning cars, promoting green energy, or encouraging tourism. You can also build bridges, tunnels, and elevated roads to create more efficient and realistic transport networks. And you can even design your own parks, monuments, and landmarks with the new asset editor.
