Paradox Interactive just announced the release of the long-awaited sequel to Cities: Skylines, Cities: Skylines 2. However, the release has been marred with performance issues on PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Playstation 5 platforms, and the game developer has warned players to keep a close eye on performance while playing.
Cities: Skylines 2 boasts an all-new UI, Powerless Buildings mode, global and regional maps, new soundtracks, and expanded city size options. The game has been praised by critics for its impressive visuals, deep simulation systems, and ease of use. Despite these great features, however, the game is currently suffering from several technical issues that can make the experience less enjoyable.
According to Paradox Interactive, the most common issues that players are reporting are frame rate drops, stutters, and other minor performance issues. In addition, the game is also suffering from some game-breaking bugs that can lead to game crashes, lost progress, and similar issues. In an official statement, Paradox has asked players to be patient and to report any issues they encounter to their technical support team.
The developer has acknowledged that the current issues are unacceptable and has stated that they are working hard to resolve them as soon as possible. They have also noted that they will be able to provide more details on patch schedule shortly. For now, the developer is advising players to keep an eye on the official support forums and check for updates regularly.
Cities: Skylines 2 is still a great game despite its technical issues and we feel confident that Paradox Interactive will address the problems soon. In the meantime, players should take extra care to keep an eye on performance and report any issues they come across. We look forward to the day when the game is running smoothly and players can fully appreciate its exciting simulation features.
