Last week, EA released the first gameplay video of the new SimCity. Today, the Maxis team is running a live webcast showing new gameplay and the first live demo of SimCity.

The video will be available at origin.com/maxis-live after the event is completed as well.
This virtual event will be packed full of announcements and will feature live software demos including the first live-streamed gameplay demo from the award-winning SimCity PC/Mac game.

Additionally, viewers will find out ways to get their hands on exciting giveaways and hear straight from the folks who create the games during special developer roundtables hosted by players.

SimCity is expected to be released early next year for $59.99. System requirements include 2GHz dual-core Intel processor, 2GB of RAM, and a GeForce9400M or Intel HD Graphics 3000 or better.

I'm guessing it will hit the Mac store. Although with Mac store wait times they would have already needed to submit it to hit their posted deadline lol.


Nope, one will have to purchase it through Origin.

I would not be surprised if subways made a return for a subterranean expansion pack. This is EA: DLC everything.

This video has all the production values of a public access television fund drive. Operators are standing by! I can't believe I watched this long enough to see people in costumes dancing on stage.

It's clear EA has microtransactioned The Sims up the ass. Yeesh. Let's hope they don't do the same with SimCity... I'm sure they will.

Can't wait for this game, but why no underground?. That was a big let down.

Maybe they didn't show transit.


They explicitly said no subways. They showed a demo of the bus station and how to place bus stops using the new data layer visualization thingy.

I wonder if they'll do technology Era's as similar to the world city packs.
As you buy them (assuming there isn't going to be an option to win them) you plop one of the new items from the pack and your city starts to take on the look and feel of the pack. The screen shots do have a sort of 1920-1950 feel to me so far.

If that is the case would be good if they did pre-car eras as well as modern and future.
