Cities: Skylines 2 System Requirements and Size
In the highly anticipated sequel to the popular city-builder game, Cities: Skylines 2, players will need a more powerful hardware setup to run the game smoothly. However, the good news is that the system requirements are not too demanding, making it accessible to a wide range of players.
The minimum system requirements for Cities: Skylines 2 include an Intel Core i7 9700K or an AMD Ryzen 5 2600X processor, along with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon RX 470 GPU. 8GB of RAM is also required. These specifications can easily be achieved even with a budget-friendly build, as they do not require the top-of-the-line graphics card or gaming CPU.
On the other hand, the recommended system requirements for Cities: Skylines 2 are more demanding. To enjoy the game with high levels of detail, developers recommend an Intel Core i5 12600K or AMD Ryzen 5 5800X processor, paired with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 or an AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU. At least 16GB of RAM is also recommended.
It is important to note that the developers have not specified the level of performance that these system requirements will guarantee. However, considering the age of the hardware mentioned, it is likely that low settings will be necessary for optimal gameplay.
In terms of storage, Cities: Skylines 2 is confirmed to require approximately 50GB of space. This is a significant increase compared to the 4GB required by the previous game, but relatively small compared to other recent releases. It is currently unknown whether an SSD is recommended or required, but more information may be provided closer to the game’s release date.
