SimCity 2.0 Update Coming
Filed under: SIMCITY, SIMCITY 2013, PATCH


This just in via EA Forums. It would appear that there's the devs of SimCity are preparing a version 2.0 patch for the city-building game, as confirmed by senior producer Kip Katsarelis.

Here's the word:

We've been heads down addressing the key issues we’re seeing reported from our community. This includes city rollbacks, lost progress, and the return of features like Cheetah Speed and Leaderboards. Like you, we want all of these resolved ASAP, which is why they are the top priorities in our studio. Matter of fact, we have all of these in a QA environment, giving them a thorough test before we release them back to you, the fans.

On top of this, we’re also working on a number of bug fixes and other overall improvements that we’re planning to include in future Updates. Just last week we released two Updates 1.7 and 1.8, which included traffic fixes and other general improvements. For the future, in Update 2.0, we’ll be addressing the Recycling Center bug, fixing the fire engine clumping, improving the efficiency of Street Cars, and increasing the radius of river water. We’re also fixing the tuning on Casinos and are making them more profitable. These are just a handful of the substantial changes coming in Update 2.0.

Keep in mind, if you don’t see a particular fix present in an Update, this doesn't mean we’re not working on it, or we’re not aware of it. Our team is constantly getting reports about the top issues being raised and this is helping us prioritize what we need to address. There are some issues that are more challenging and will take more time. If you have feedback, please visit our forums. In the meantime, we’ll continue to address the top issues in our updates. We’ll keep working while you’re playing.

Meanwhile, EA recently admitted that their DRM strategies haven't exactly worked out the way they planed and are now being regarded as a failed strategy.

I found a copy of SimCity 4 at Walmart for $10. It took some tweaking but I got it working on Win 7. EA can keep their 'always online' trainwreck. I will build my cities offline :)

The game looks nice, patch the damn always online and I'll grab it for 30$. Send a million of emails like this to EA and let's see if those greedy bastards dont remove that shit.

The way this is going, they'll be adding it via DLC :) "For only 15$, on this DLC you get to play a bigger city and in offline mode...grab it now!"
