Fast Travel Games has announced that the VR spin-off of Cities: Skylines will be released on April 28 for the Meta Quest 2. The game was already announced last year, but had no concrete release date yet.

The developer showed this week a new gameplay trailer of Cities: VR and announced that the game will be released on April 28. The game will be available on that date via the Oculus store and can then be played with the Meta Quest 2 headset. The VR game will not be available for other virtual reality platforms upon release, but the developer has according to UploadVR Hinting that that may change at a later date.

In the gameplay video, the developer shows how players should get started in the game, also demonstrating the different systems and game mechanics. Players can see their city from a bird’s eye view or up close. In the game, they are responsible for the satisfaction of their inhabitants, as well as for things like the economy, entertainment, education and emergency services of their cities. The game won’t get any natural disasters or terrain customization options at launch, but the developer says the game will be expanded at a later date.

Cities: VR was announced last December. The game is not being developed by Colossal Order, the creators of the original Cities: Skylines. Instead, a new studio is working on the VR game: Fast Travel Games. It’s also not a direct port of Cities: Skylines, because VR isn’t suited to the size and scale of an entire Cities: Skylines city. Instead, Cities: VR is aimed at smaller, more intimate cities. The game will cost 30 euros.
