One of many largest shortcomings in 2015’s metropolis builder Cities: Skylines was the variety of map tiles gamers had been allowed to construct on. The buildable house on a map was a grid of 5×5 tiles (25 in whole), and of these obtainable tiles gamers might solely unlock a complete of 9 to construct their cities on.

Simply 9! A minimum of at first.

Modders had been fast to take away that restriction, permitting the entire tiles on the map (which was 9×9) to be constructed on, for a complete of 81 tiles.

Cities: Skylines 2 was introduced at the moment, and it appears to be like like modders can stand down: The maps in Cities: Skylines 2 will let you unlock a whopping 150 map tiles, fairly a leap over the unique game. Granted, we do not know the scale of these tiles, so they might be smaller than within the authentic. But it surely nonetheless feels like a hell of much more room to construct with out having to put in a mod.

This info comes from the Xbox achievement listing for Cities: Skylines 2, which was additionally launched at the moment (maybe unintentionally). A number of websites like Xboxachivements and Trueachievements are displaying the complete listing of 40 achievements, which mix to award 1,000 factors towards your gamerscore.

A kind of achievements, “All the things the Gentle Touches,” awards 50 factors for unlocking 150 map tiles in a single metropolis. Primarily based on the title of the achievement it sounds to me like that is your entire map, and the quantity of factors awarded makes it look like it is a late-game kind of cheevo. Relaxation assured, if there are extra map tiles in an space you’ll be able to’t construct on, modders will discover a technique to unlock these too.

Among the many remainder of the achievements there are many routine-sounding accomplishments, like for constructing an airport, making a district, having varied numbers of residents and happiness scores, unlocking each constructing within the game, and issues like that. However there are a number of extra attention-grabbing ones:

 “Issues Are Not Wanting Up” – Expertise a rat infestation
“The Dimension of Golf Balls!” – Expertise a hailstorm
“You Little Stalker!” – Observe a citizen’s lifepath from childhood to previous age

Boy, rats and hailstorms? Are we positive this is not a survival metropolis builder? I assume the rat drawback might be an occasion if in case you have sanitation points, trash buildup, or sewage issues in your metropolis, and hail sounds attention-grabbing as a result of not like rain or snow it might do harm to buildings or automobiles. There are additionally extra basic disasters like tornadoes and forest fires proven within the achievements.

As for following a residents “lifepath” from childhood to previous age, nicely, been there finished that. But it surely might be enjoyable to do it once more in Cities: Skylines 2. This is the complete listing of achievements.
