SimCity Set For a Rebuild

Platforms: PC

Sim City is making a return to the PC next year. A brand new game, built from the ground up by those involved in the original series is pencilled in for a 2013 release. So far only a few details have emerged but it would appear that the latest Sim City will be more like earlier versions rather than the more recent Sim City Societies.

Maxis, the people behind Sim City, have not put out a Sim City game since 2003. Sim City Societies was instead developed by Tilted Mill Entertainment. EA have apparently been considering revisiting the series for a while and it has finally been confirmed at this week's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

The latest release, simply titled Sim City, will be brought up to current-day speed with environmental issues affecting construction and mayors dealing with climate change, renewable energy and natural disasters as they build their cities. What happens in one city can also affect a friend's town. The game will have online features where one person can play side by side with friends who are mayors of their own cities. All players globally can compete in rankings to be the greenest, the dirtiest, the fittest, or the best city in which to live.
