Achievements in Cities: Skylines 2 Show Rat Infestations and More
It looks like the much-anticipated sequel to Cities: Skylines may not be as far off as some people thought. Even though there has been no actual gameplay revealed yet, Xbox achievement websites have managed to uncover the game’s achievements, and they appear to provide some insight into the title’s features. The launch of the game is expected at some point during 2023.
Cities: Skylines 2 made a splash when it was showcased as the headliner of this year’s Paradox Announcement Show. It seems that its achievement data has been let out, possibly unintentionally. This data is more detailed than one may have anticipated. For instance, the “Everything the Light Touches” achievement is unlocked once a user purchases 150 map tiles, which is significantly more than the 25-tile requirement in the initial game. On the other hand, “Things Are Not Looking Up” requires a rat infestation to be the first one in the city, while “The Size of Golf Balls” is related to a hailstorm event.
The accomplishments of Cities: Skylines 2 suggest that it will be much larger and more diversified than its predecessor. If hailstorms, tornadoes, and rat infestations are all part of the game, players must be extremely cautious, as there will be more elements to monitor in the sequel. To make sure they don’t make any missteps, they should steer clear of the common errors when playing Cities: Skylines.
Given the immense success of the Cities: Skylines modifications released through the Steam Workshop, Colossal Order is likely planning on utilizing this platform for the upcoming game as well. If this turns out to be true, the advanced simulation capabilities will be able to make the game more entertaining than ever before.
It is important to restate that no Cities: Skylines 2 gameplay has been demonstrated yet. Colossal Order’s history is positive and the studio’s background creates anticipation that the upcoming city-builder will be included in most gamers’ Paradox Interactive video game tier lists. It remains to be seen if Colossal Order will succeed in this venture.
In 2023, Cities: Skylines 2 will launch for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
