Trailer for the new SimCity, coming in March 2013. SimCity is a popular city-building video game series. Its last edition (excluding spin-offs) came out way back in 2003, so the fans must be happy with the news.
This latest instalment is using the franchise name as release title which is a bit confusing; they could have put something – e.g. SimCity 5 – to avoid that. Regardless, the video looks pretty awesome.
In the SimCity games, players develop a city by creating zones, and building infrastructures like roads, power plants, and public services like police stations and schools etc. Players also have to manage the financial and social aspects to grow the city. It’s both fun and educational.
I used to play the older version a lot, SimCity 3000 if not mistaken. I didn’t play the 2003 game though, I skipped many entertainment activities during that period because of life commitments.
I’ll probably give the new one a try if time permits. Hope it’s good, if not better than the old games.
