Cities: Skylines Wiki

Achievements are unlocked for players after reaching certain milestones, achieving hidden goals, or unlocking certain items. There are currently 124 unlockable achievements in Cities: Skylines.

Active mods (not assets) will disqualify a save game for achievement completion. Accepting a cash bail out will disqualify a save game for achievement completion, although there is a Steam Workshop modification that makes it possible to re-enable achievements.

See Global Gameplay Stats – Cities: Skylines at Steam for a list of all achievements sorted by the percentage of players that managed to complete an achievement.
