Cities: Skylines 2 PC Version Suffers from Game Optimization Issues

Skylines 2, the highly anticipated city-building game developed by Colossal Order Ltd. and published by Paradox Interactive, is now officially on sale. However, the PC version of the game has been met with criticism from players due to serious performance issues.

SteamDB data shows that the current review rate of Cities: Skylines 2 is only 49.25%, with "mixed reviews". Most of the negative reviews on the Steam platform revolve around game optimization. Many players have reported experiencing low frame rates, even on high-end PCs.

One player, Stin, claimed that their PC configuration (i9-13900k, 64GB RAM, RTX 4090) was only able to achieve 35 FPS in the main menu and in the game at 1440P resolution, even with the game's image quality settings set to the lowest.

Colossal Order developers have previously revealed that the goal of Cities: Skylines 2 is only "30 frames per second", even "even on the most powerful PC." Earlier this month, Colossal Order admitted that the performance of Cities: Skylines 2 did not meet the standards it deserves, but they insisted on releasing the game on the PC platform today.

Colossal Order has stated that the development team is currently developing patches to fix game performance issues. In the meantime, the developers have recommended the following settings to improve the game experience to a certain extent:

  • Reduce screen resolution to 1080p

  • Disable depth of field and volumetric lights

  • Reduce global ambient lighting

It is unclear how long it will take Colossal Order to fix the game's performance issues. However, players who are experiencing low frame rates may want to consider waiting for the developers to release a patch before purchasing the game.
