Cities Skylines VR – what we all know, when it is out & what we will anticipate

Final Up to date:

We’ve got spoken about Cities: Skylines and the way standard it’s right here at WePC earlier than and have checked out the opportunity of Cities Skylines 2 and whether or not it’s truly on the horizon or not.

What we haven’t talked about to this point, is that this new VR model which has a launch date confirmed now for the tip of April on the Meta Quest 2 (I do know, I do know, it’s the Oculus Quest to you and me, however for the sake of holding the peace with Zucks…).

Surprisingly, for a sport the place you suppose you could possibly nearly expertise the skylines of your cities for themselves, the Skylines moniker has been dropped from the sport, leaving us with simply Cities: VR.

Cities VR – how does it work?


From the gameplay video we will see the dev displaying off among the controls and the way laying out roads and pipelines will work earlier than the buildings then begin to spring to life and other people start to maneuver into your metropolis.

Solely time will inform if that is truly as pure as utilizing a mouse – it form of looks as if it has the potential to be a bit clunky as you map the whole lot out out of your hovering God-like spot within the sky.

The graphics are additionally extra colourful and fewer detailed than we now have come to anticipate from the PC model however that is the trade-off of the low-end {hardware} of the Meta Quest 2. In the end, as any VR aficionado is aware of, you don’t want 4K graphics to get a full immersion right into a sport. My 200+ hours in Elite Harmful are a testomony to that.

The picture above appears fairly cartooney and largely texture free however taking a look at VR screenshots on excessive–finish displays just isn’t consultant of the general expertise within the slightest.

How is Cities VR totally different from Cities: Skylines?

Apart from the aforementioned dip in graphical constancy the dimensions of the cities you may create can be vastly smaller – that is being pitched as to create a extra “intimate” expertise, nevertheless it’s extra wish to be the extra intimate capabilities of the Snapdragon processor within the Quest 2 headset.

At launch, we aren’t going to get pure disasters or terrain modifying however it’s doable these will arrive sooner or later, though we’re not how experiencing a full-on earthquake in VR will make us really feel.
