Paradox Interactive’s insanely detailed and successful city builder is getting a sequel. Somehow, a city sim that allows players to control every aspect of a city becomes even more in-depth. Players could build amazing cities in the first game and in Cities: Skylines 2, they will be able to drive them into the ground.
In the latest Development Diary, Colossal Order gave us a rundown on how players can use city services. These services include Education, Law Enforcement, Water and Sewage, Landscape, Communications, and a ton of others. There are also ways to upgrade and gauge the efficiency of these services.
In Cities: Skylines 2, some of the rules and policies can be changed from district to district. Players from the first game will remember how hard traffic was to manage. To remedy problems like this, players are allowed to change and even remove policies and regulations from districts.

Cutting pollution regulations might allow factories to produce more, but could be harmful to the populace. Removing speed limits will definitely get traffic moving faster, but it would cause more traffic accidents. Messing with these rules will be like a balancing act with human lives, but fun!
On the other side of that action, you could invest in your districts with upgrades. Each city operations can be upgraded with benefits, such as increased bandwidth, efficiency, and number of services.
Cities: Skylines 2 will be coming out October 24th on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
