Does Cities Skylines 2 Have DLSS or Ray Tracing?

Given the state it launched in, fans are hoping Cities Skylines 2 has DLSS to help offset the game’s poor performance. Many assumed it would also support ray tracing to enable more realistic lighting and shadows. Unfortunately, those who wanted those features are in for some disappointment.

Does Cities Skylines 2 have DLSS?

Cities Skylines 2 doesn’t support DLSS 1, 2, or 3 at launch. The only dynamic upsampling the game comes with is FSR1, which is showing its age.

More Cities: Skylines

However, not all hope is lost. Colossal Order apparently has plans to implement DLSS in a future update, according to a dev AMA on Reddit:

“Yes, there are plans. Right now, the game ships with AMD FSR1, which does not look that good when the scale ratio is 50% (you can enable it with Dynamic resolution scale setting) but is supported by Unity out of the box.

DLSS2 would require to use Temporal Anti-aliasing, which is not possible at the moment due some objects being incompatible with that technique.

We are currently working towards making this possible (both with a more recent version of FSR and DLSS), which will not only help to boost performances and also provide a better quality anti-aliasing solution than the one we currently use (SMAA by default).

AMD Fluid motion/NVidia frame generation are definitely relevant to us as well but to be realistic, we have to work within the constraints of our technology so those will take much longer.”

So, it’s more of a matter of “when” than “if” Cities Skylines 2 will get DLSS.

Does Cities Skylines 2 have ray tracing?

Again, Cities Skylines 2 doesn’t launch with ray tracing, and we haven’t seen that there are any plans to introduce it into the game. Considering the performance issues players are facing already, adding a feature that requires even more computational overhead likely isn’t a priority. However, never say never. Once the devs have added DLSS, getting decent performance with ray tracing on becomes a lot more realistic of a proposition.
