Are you wondering whether you can import cities from Cities: Skylines and play them on Cities: Skylines 2? We’ve got the answer.
Cities: Skylines has been around for eight years, with DLC after DLC pack ensuring that the game stayed fresh. But now that Cities: Skylines 2 is out, can you import your Cities: Skylines city into the game? If that’s what you’re wondering, here’s what you need to know.
If you’ve been working on the same city for 8 years and were planning on importing it into this sequel, we’ve got bad news. There is no way of importing a city from the original Cities: Skylines into Cities: Skylines 2.
This isn’t some shocking oversight, with developer Colossal Order Ltd letting down long times fans. Cities: Skylines 2 is an entirely new game, built from scratch, with a whole bunch of new systems. Sure, with Mass Effect you could look at a character and see they made Decision X and Decision Y and bring those in, that’s doable. But processing every single piece of a Cities: Skylines city, somehow shoehorning it into this new game isn’t feasible.
We know that some players are looking at bringing the original Cities: Skylines land maps into the sequel and they may well succeed. But importing a whole functioning city is off the table. So on the subject of can you import Cities: Skylines cities into Cities: Skylines 2, the answer is no.
