Cities: Skylines II gets good pre-release reviews

Colossal Order and Paradox’ new iteration of the bestselling Cities: Skylines gets good grades from the reviewers who have got pre-release copies of Cities: Skylines II.

On the review aggregation site Metacritic the game now has a metascore of 77/100 based on 33 reviews and the site Opencritic lists it with also 77/100.

The first Cities: Skylines game was released in spring 2015 and is Paradox’ biggest hit yet with over 12 million copies sold. It has also had a steady release of DLC:s and a very healthy modder community.

Yesterday evening Cities: Skylines II was the fourth most wishlisted game on Steam and on their global list of sales it was on place ten.
