Cities: Skylines 2’s achievements trace at bigger cities and disasters

Cities: Skylines 2 was introduced yesterday, with a CG trailer and scant particulars other than it being in a roundabout way “revolutionary”. Should you starvation for one thing extra concrete about the way it may differ from its predecessor, as I do, then you definately could be serious about an apparently leaked record of achievements that accommodates particulars of disasters, climate, embiggened map sizes and extra.

As noticed by PC Gamer, the seemingly full record of Xbox achievements is out there through each Xbox Achievements and True Achievements.

A type of achievements is known as “Every thing the Mild Touches,” which is awarded when a participant unlocks 150 map tiles in a single metropolis. The primary Cities: Skylines maps had a most of 81 map tiles, of which 25 had been buildable, though gamers might solely construct on a maxium of 9 inside a single metropolis. 150 is a step up, then.

Different achievements make reference to hailstorms, tornadoes and forest fires – the latter two of which had been solely added to the unique Cities: Skylines through its Pure Disasters DLC. There’s additionally a “Zero Emission” achievement, awarded for constructing a metropolis fully powered by renewable vitality sources, and others which have fun utilizing an editor to make a map or any non-map asset. All of these sound fascinating to me.

I really like Cities: Skylines and citybuilders generally, so I am looking forward to actually any data I can get in regards to the sequel. I’ve an extended record of issues I hope it does, like extra distinct neighbourhoods, combined zoning, and the power to construct cities not fully structured round vehicles. No matter it does, it feels as if it wants to supply one thing to offset the transition from heavily-expanded, heavily-modded Skylines to a sequel that can presumably, initially a minimum of, be much less content material wealthy.

Paradox additionally introduced a brand new recreation from the Shadowrun and BattleTech devs and Life By You, a Sims competitor from former Sims developer Rod Humble.
