What will tomorrow look like? Build it today! EA today announced that the new SimCity expansion pack ‘Cities of Tomorrow’ is now available for PC and Mac at retail store and of course it is also available for digital download.
SimCity Cities of Tomorrow offers the more than two million players worldwide the opportunity to futurize every aspect of their cities with the help of plausible future technologies, giving players an entirely new way to dream about their city of the future. New MegaTowers, new city specializations, new future technology and new transportation methods will transform the way that cities take shape and evolve.
There is still no hint of providing us Sim City fans with larger maps for the game, but instead the developers are thinking vertically and increasing the amount of ‘city’ that you can squash into your plot.
“MegaTowers, futurization, and the battle between Green and Greed, these are the main foundations that drive an all-new experience in SimCity Cities of Tomorrow,” said Patrick Buechner, General Manager, Maxis Emeryville. “This expansion pack completely transforms how you play as you tackle the problems of tomorrow using plausible future technologies. But that technology comes as a price – the clean utopian world of The Academy requires a wealthy workforce that demands a higher style of living. OmegaCo, while extremely profitable, will take its toll on your Sims as the factories devour your natural resources and spit them back out in the form of harmful pollution. There is a new level of challenge waiting for you as the world pushes you back harder than ever before. The city of the future awaits; how it takes shape is up to you.”
Of course you will need the base SimCity game to play the new content, but you’ll still be able to join games with people who have / don’t have the content. The expansion pack is cross platform compatible and is at least one extra way to expand on the games limited construction spaces.
Thank you EA for providing us with this information.
