EA Maxis announces the release of SimCity Cities of Tomorrow, the
expansion for their urban-planning game:
SimCity Cities of Tomorrow is an
entirely new way to play the ultimate city-building simulation. Players have the
choice to create a utopian society underpinned by clean technology under the
auspices of The Academy, or encourage giant corporation OmegaCo to strip-mine
natural resources and pollute in the name of making massive profits. These new
specializations are set against the backdrop of the all-new MegaTowers, massive
structures that players build high into the sky and dwarf the rest of the city.
With the right balance the MegaTowers become self-sustaining monoliths that
cater to all of the needs of the Sims under one roof. When players have finished
deciding whether they want their Sims to live together in harmony, or as members
of an exploited workforce, they can rain chaos upon them by unleashing an
all-new disaster exclusive to this expansion pack.
The SimCity base game is available on PC and Mac and was developed by Maxis. The
base game and expansion pack are cross-platform compatible, so all players play
together across the same servers. Owners of SimCity Cities of Tomorrow can play
alongside those who do not own the expansion pack and provide them with
futurization benefits when they play together in the same region. Launched last
March, SimCity has had eight major game updates that have made upgrades to the
core simulation and provided game content at no additional cost.
