New SimCity Game to PC Next Year
Filed under: SIMCITY, SIMCITY 5, EA, MAXIS
During the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, EA revealed their plans to bring back the SimCity franchise. Well, it is true, my friends. A new SC game is on its way to the PC and Mac and you can expect it at some point during 2013.

Oh boy here it comes:

"This is a 3D SimCity," EA states (Ah crap!).

According to the publisher this game a new proprietary GlassBox Engine created by the folks at Maxis. The technology is going to "equip players with the tools to play the most sophisticated simulation of its kind."

EA also said: "We're building a simulation that really captures the world that we live in today." Online features were mentioned as well, such as cooperating and competing against other players who are also building cities of their own. However, despite the disheartening '3d moment' we are glad to report that EA refers to the game as "a true rebirth of the franchise."

Hm, here's hoping.

Oh and here's a preliminary video for the game:

Damn, that actually looks good!

Why just Simcity!? Is it that hard to put a 5 in there? It sound cool now, but 5 years from now we'll be calling it "the Simcity that came out in 2013"... Same shit that happens with Mortal Kombat and many others. Anyways, I hope it'll be great, though I much prefer the isometric view. Guess I'll keep playing Anno 2070 for now.

Well... it better fkn be a true rebirth or EA is even more EVIL than we all have ever suspected.

I don't trust them.

"Visuals do not represent actual gameplay"
So that small print in the video basically means, "This is a piece of marketing hype to get you to buy the game even though it has nothing to do with the product, much like a car commercial that doesn't show a car but instead shows a group of bikini clad beauties saying vroom vroom this car is so sexy..."

I see the city but I don't see any sex.

Will this be first SimCity sans Will Wright?

It better have full terraforming tools and it better have proper scenery tools too. If this is just a plop a city with no remit for creative city building (and modding) then it'll be shit. I bet they're is more focus on social gaming than actual city building.
