It’s that time of the week again, and Colossal Order has published a brand-new dev video offering a look at some of the new and returning city services available in Cities: Skylines 2.
The four-minute video revealed that health and death care are returning to Cities: Skylines 2 from the original game, as well as education in the form of schools, colleges, and universities, and electricity, water, and waste management too.
Parks, plazas, and landmarks make their return from the original game and please the residents of your city, and there’s also fire safety and crime to manage via fire and police stations – there’s no word on jails like in the original game.
New to the sequel are welfare offices, which offer safety nets for your city’s citizens, and communication, which provide your city with telecommunication and internet and boosts business profits while pleasing residents.
The video also revealed that you can upgrade your city service buildings to boost their effectiveness as your city grows, rather than plopping down identical copies of the buildings in other locations, which can help in making a city look a little more unique rather than having dozens of clones of buildings to meet demand.
Next week’s dev video should offer a closer look at electricity and water management.
Cities: Skylines 2 launches on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series consoles on October 24th.
