Cities: Skylines 2: Map Size Revealed! Bigger than a Mini Country

The devs of Cities: Skylines 2 have finally spilled the beans on the new city builder’s map size, and boy, oh boy, it’s no slouch! We’re talking a whopping 159 square kilometers, folks! That’s “bigger than some countries”, as the devs themselves proudly declare in their latest dev diary video. Who needs a trip to Liechtenstein when you can build your mini replica right here?

Now, let’s put this into perspective. In the original Cities: Skylines, you had a measly nine map tiles to unlock, giving you a playable area of just 33 square kilometers. Talk about cramped! But fear not, dear city planners, as Cities: Skylines 2 is about to blow your mind. The new map tiles may be smaller, but you’ll have a jaw-dropping total of 441 to unlock, expanding your playable area to a mind-boggling 159 square kilometers. That’s nearly five times the size of the original game! Woohoo!

Now, before you start thinking, “Hey, that’s not as big as the original game with mods!”, let’s take a moment to appreciate what we’re getting here. City Planner Plays, among other fine folks, have pointed out that the original Cities: Skylines was blessed with a marvelous mod called 81 Tiles, which stretched the playable area to a colossal 299 square kilometers. Impressive, huh? But hang on, because Cities: Skylines 2’s vanilla maps are still over half the size of what you could achieve with mods in the original game. It’s no small feat, my friends!

But that’s not all. Brace yourselves for some game-changing news. Cities: Skylines 2 is ditching the agent limit, meaning you can unleash your creativity without any artificial barriers to your city’s growth. Say goodbye to frustrating constraints and hello to endless possibilities!

These Cities: Skylines 2 dev diaries have us city builder enthusiasts bouncing in our seats, even when it comes to the simplest quality-of-life improvements. The future is bright, my fellow mayors! Buckle up and get ready to embark on the ultimate city-building adventure. It’s time to build, create, and conquer!
