So Sim City is coming to PC in 2013 with Sim City 5 YAY. That is one of the best announcements to come out of GDC so far. I remember the first Sim City I played way back when, Sim City 2000 and then 3000 and how cool it was to create my city while trying not to go broke. I’m also happy that it is for the PC only, that was always where it felt most at home and I don’t expect that to change in its next iteration.
From putting down pipes to creating power plants it was a fun and complex management game. Now after a way to long absence it is returning in style and with multiplayer. I wonder how multiplayer will work in practice and I hope that the graphics will rock without making my computer slowdown to a crawl. That is the hope anyway and here is the trailer of the new game. I will be following it as we go.
I am glad it is being helmed by Maxis, that is where it was created and where I think it should always stay. Now can we get Will Wright involved?
Enjoy the launch trailer in all its CGI glory:
