EA plans to release the next version of SimCity -- the classic city-building game -- on the Mac simultaneously with the PC release this February. EA will also be delivering Origin, its digital download service, at the same time. The game will be available for purchase and download via the service.

Mac users will be able to connect to the new multiplayer component in SimCity and appears to be feature-complete with the PC-version. EA has yet to announce pricing or system requirements.

The Mac version of the new SimCity is slated to arrive alongside its PC counterpart in February of 2013. Apple users will be able to take advantage of Glassbox-driven gameplay, along with SimCity World and CityLog connectivity features, by purchasing and downloading the game through Origin.

Another digital download service?

I'd probably pick this up on the App Store, but signing up to a whole new service is realistically not going to happen in my case. A pity, this title would probably appeal much more outside the core gaming market.

The worst thing about this game is te fact that it involves EA Games. I won't buy it on release day just because it's EA, I'll have to look and see what people say first.

Worst company in the gaming industry.

Awesome. Although I really hope it's on Steam too as I would really rather not have to touch any download service operated by EA.

Will be interesting. I was a big fan of SimCity 2000 back in the day, though the last couple games have been a bit disappointing. Some of the stuff they want to do with this version looks pretty cool though.

My guess, like all EA games, It'll probably be a cider port anyway, which means it'll run bad, and need way too many resources...
