Best PC Settings in Cities Skyline 2

Here is the best PC settings for Cities Skyline 2.

Cities Skyline 2 is the latest city-building game launched on Windows PC. Developed by Colossal Order, Cities Skyline 2 is a follow-up to one of the best city builders games, “Cities Skyline”. Cities Skyline 2 provides a new, more in-depth, and adaptable foundation to live on the hearts of city builders for years to come. 

Despite the high hopes, the game seems uncooked and needs to be optimized. Even in medium and low settings, the game runs poorly, doesn’t look great, and struggles to get 30 FPS. Unfortunately, this performance and visual issues severely affect the experience of the game.

Even if you have a good PC, you need to tweak some settings to play it smoothly. Here, we will give you the best possible PC settings to run Cities Skyline 2 at its best.
