Game News: Brand New SimCity Announced For 2013

EA have announced at the Games Developer Conference that the return of Maxis' Sim City franchise will return in 2013 with "SimCity" for PC and Mac.

“We’d like to thank the millions of fans who have helped make SimCity synonymous with the city-building genre. 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.
Using our proprietary GlassBox Engine, SimCity for PC will equip players with the tools to play the most sophisticated simulation of its kind. We are dedicated to making sure the experience – no matter the platform – has the fun, flavor and playability that has been intrinsic to the franchise since its birth.” - Lucy Bradshaw, senior vice president at EA-owned Maxis, told attendees at the Games Developers Conference.
EA Origin has released the minimum system requirements for the game:

  • AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+ or better / Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 2.0GHz or better
Operating system:
  • Windows XP/Vista/7
  • 1.5GB (Windows XP)
  • 2GB (Windows Vista / Windows 7)
  • 2GB (built-in graphical chipset)
Graphics card:
  • ATI X1800 or better*
  • nVidia 7800 or better*
  • Intel 4100 Integrated Graphics or better*
  • (*Minimum of 256MB of on-board RAM and Shader 3.0 or better support)

Many features from the previous games will be present in this tittle, with updated graphics under a new engine could potentially take SimCity to another level. Look forward to managing your metropolis in 2013.
