The first full expansion for SimCity, Cities of Tomorrow, will be coming this fall. With it, you’ll be able to travel to the future to create a new vision of your perfect city.
Cities of Tomorrow will be available starting Nov. 12 for both PC and Mac, though there’s currently no price point for the expansion. The add-on will send you 50 years into the future, where you’ll have the ability to build for the idealist Academy or the money-minded OmegaCo.
“Will the world of tomorrow be a utopia powered by clean energy or an industrial society consumed by mass commercialism?” said Patrick Buechner, General Manager, Maxis Emeryville. “With SimCity Cities of Tomorrow, players can build the future as they imagine it. Transport your Sims on MagLev, power your cities with fusion reactors or tidal wave generators, manufacture a legion of drones to serve your Sims and build massive MegaTowers that dwarf modern skyscrapers. We’re giving you plausible technologies to take your cities onto a journey 50 years into the future. What will you create?”
You’ll be able to build Mega Towers, which can extend high into the sky, or focus on creating a world powered by green energy. There will also be a new disaster just for the expansion, though Maxis is being tight-lipped about what exactly this disaster is. Check out the video for more details, and start thinking about how you can recreate MegaCity One.
