Electronic Arts (or EA) first announced that SimCity was getting a revival last year, it has been edging closer and closer to a release date ever since. A couple of months ago EA let a handful of lucky Beta testers in to the SimCity world to create their own cities and iron out the bugs. From these Beta testers including some of the media we’ve been able to get a unique view inside the SimCity world. Check out what Mashable writer Chelsea Stark had to say about playing SimCity in Mashable’s article here – http://mashable.com/2013/03/04/simcity-review/.
With SimCity set for release tomorrow (March 5th 2013) we thought we would share with you some of the videos EA have been using to demonstrate the features of SimCity. SimCity will be available in two versions initially, with the Limited Edition (boxed version) set to retail at $59 (USD) while a digital only Deluxe Edition (which will include city some European City sets) will be available for $79 (USD). At this stage EA are only making SimCity available on PC and Mac with no word yet if it will make a console version. Also look out for plenty of Expansion packs for SimCity in the future.
