Sim City 5 Set For 2013 + Trailer

Sim City 5 was officially yesterday announced at GDC (Game Developers Conference). Hell yeah!

I generally don't play on my PC. For Sim City, I'll make an exception...

The new title, which is being simply called ‘Sim City’, will be developed by the series creators Maxis (the geniuses behind the ridiculously successful The Sims series as well), and is slated for a 2013 release on PC. The game will incorporate a new engine called ‘GlassBox’, and will be the first fully 3D entry into the franchise. EA, who own Maxis, had the following to say:

“Sim City is a true rebirth of a franchise that brings the depth of simulation that has been the series hallmark for more than two decades and marries it with next generation accessibility and a robust multiplayer mode, giving players the power to change a world together.”

 They were also kind enough to release a teaser trailer, which you can see here. Now if you will excuse me, I’m off to install Sim City 4 again and destroy my perfect communities with hurricanes…

UPDATE: If you are a fan of The Sims 3, it’s currently on sale on Steam for just £10.99. Snap it up before the offer runs out at 4PM Pacific Time on Thursday
