About Simcity:

After a 10 year break since Sim City 4, Maxis is back with Simcity (2013) , according to  EA,the game is a complete reboot of the SimCity series. The game uses new GlassBox engine, a simulation engine designed by EA/Maxis, which creates simulation agents for each element and ties animations directly to agent activity.

SimCity provides total control of how cities develop, but also adds new features such as: crisp 3D graphics, direct contact with citizens, dynamic real-time in-game units that replace animations representing player actions and levels of citizen happiness, franchise first multiplayer support, and in-game weather and pollution representation.

How ever there are notable disadvantages in the new game like  no option for 100% offline with single player mode, always-on connection to Origin (EA servers),random disasters (Unless playing in Sandbox mode), you will not be able to reload the city to a stage prior to disasters (Due to Cloud Saving on EA servers), Absence of terraforming, agriculture, and subways.

Also Player doesn’t have direct control over the zoning by population density (The size of a road directly correlates to the building’s density level) and Player doesn’t have direct control over a civic buildings funding. Player can turn a whole building on/off and/or add/remove Modules.

SimCity will be released on March 5,2013 in U.S/North American region, March 7 in Japan and Australia. The game will be available in India and Europe on March 8,2013.
