The new Sim City game, planned for release next year, will be a fresh start for the venerable town planning series it seems. Not only has the game been redesigned using a new game engine called GlassBox, but it will ditch the sequel numbering and simply be called Sim City. "We got kind of bored of sticking numbers on the end," Maxis developer Lucy Bradshaw explained.
The game will boast a more organic approach to city building, with a renewed emphasis based on the world as it is today. Environmental concerns will be high on the agenda, so you'll have to watch your emissions. "Invest in heavy industry and your economy will soar - but at the expense of your Sims' health as pollution spreads," says the blurb. "Implement green technology and improve your Sims' lives while risking higher taxes and unemployment."
Multiplayer for up to 16 players has been confirmed, with regional and global challenges, and the chance to contribute to the wider Sim City World. "Team up with your friends to solve global challenges: launch a space shuttle, reduce carbon emissions or build magnificent wonders," boasts the press release. "Compete on global and regional leaderboards to be the richest, the dirtiest, the happiest or the best place to visit!"
Also confirmed are giant monster attacks, while special editions will apparently feature superheroes and supervillains duking it out in your streets. Special regional content packs will also be available, allowing you to create a metropolis unique to your own national identity.
Sim City launches in 2013 for the PC. No console versions have been announced as yet.
EA has announced that the iconic SimCity franchise is to receive a major new instalment on PC in 2013.
Billed as a "true rebirth" for Maxis' legendary city-building series, the new game will feature a more in-depth simulation of a living, breathing metropolis than ever thanks to the developer's new GlassBox Engine technology.
Players will be able to create unique and visually distinct cities, the residents of which will have their own jobs, purchase homes and contribute to the economy.
Cities can be transformed into anything from financial capitals to industrial complexes, though gamers will need to be aware of wider societal issues like climate change and natural disasters.
The new SimCity will also include full multiplayer options, allowing gamers to create their ideal city of the future together.
Lucy Bradshaw, senior vice president of Maxis, said: "This is a franchise that means the world to us at Maxis and we're happy to be bringing it back home where we are reimagining it for an entirely new generation of players."
SimCity has been going strong since making its debut on PC way back in 1989 and is the brainchild of Will Wright, creator of The Sims and Spore.
