SimCity going offline

Platforms: PC

Maxis have announced that in the next SimCity patch, the game will be introducing an offline mode. So much for EA's insistence that it the always-online aspect of the game was a necessity, eh?

The new update will mean that you can play the game by yourself, offline, with no need to be permanently connected to the EA/Maxis servers. It also opens the doors for modders who have previously been restricted to minor changes to maintain multiplayer compatibility.

The offline mode is currently undergoing testing so we're not sure on release date yet, but expect it early this year.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
