Sim City release date confirmed.
EA has confirmed today that the newest instalment in their long running franchise will hit sores on 8th March 2013.
Sim City is a refresh for the series. It’s offering a deeper game and has been built from the ground up with an online experience in mind. Sim City will introduce multicity play which means that your decisions not only affect your city, but have a ripple effect across the whole Sim City World.
With Maxis’ new Glassbox Engine driving the game it has a model-like look and feel that makes players want to reach in, poke, prod, and tinker around. Maxis has put the simulation right in front of the player so that they can see the consequences of their actions and really dig in to see how the systems work.
Sim City will launch on Mac & PC on 8 March 2013. For more information you can head over to www.simcity.com
