In this latest video from SimCity creators Maxis, we learn how running multiple cities, or teaming up with a friend can benefit creating that city-based utopia you’ve always dreamed of.
SimCity is looking fantastic, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it in March 2013, but for now, we are going to have to make do with a drip feed of information from SimCity creators Maxis. I’m sure you all know the score with SimCity, it’s a strategy game that tasks you with building a city from scratch, making it successful, profitable, healthy and attractive. Over the years and it’s various iterations, it has become a deeper and deeper experience, with the amount of options available in the last entry into the series, SimCity 4, being somewhat overwhelming.
The new game, simply titled SimCity, implements a bevy of new ways to manage and view the game world, some of which can be seen in the video below. In the video, we see how the idea of multi city play (seen in a much simpler, CPU controlled way in older games) has become an important part of the SimCity jigsaw puzzle.
From what we’ve seen so far, SimCity is looking every inch a contender for best strategy game of 2013.
SimCity will be available March 8th 2013 for Windows PC and Mac
