Release Date June 11th 2013
Good news for budding MAC Mayors, SimCity will hit the MAC on June the 11th this year. Another cool feature is if you have a PC and a MAC your PC copy will work on your MAC account and vice versa. This version has been built from the ground up especially for the MAC and will allow users to build on the same server from either platform.
Press Release :
For more than 23 years, SimCity™ has entertained over 30 million fans worldwide and it returns to the platform that started it all on June 11. Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced that SimCity will be coming to the Mac on June 11 exclusively as a digital release via Origin™. Fans who purchase SimCity will be able to play the game on Mac and PC, regardless of which version they buy, as well as access their cities from across both platforms. Players who have previously purchased SimCity for PC, either as a physical or a digital copy will receive the Mac version as a free digital download on Origin* on June 11.
“SimCity is coming to Mac on June 11 and one purchase will give you both the Mac and PC versions. You only need to buy SimCity once to play together across the same servers, regardless of which version you’re playing,” said Lucy Bradshaw, Senior Vice President and General Manager of EA’s Maxis Label. “We didn’t want to make any compromises when it came to the Mac so we created a native version that is optimized for the hardware and OSX.”
With more than 1.3 million units sold on PC since launch, the beloved city-building simulator is back with the series creators at Maxis™ and it delivers the most immersive and personal SimCity experience ever, where players can create and destroy the cities of their imaginations. SimCity runs natively on Mac and its entire software renderer was rewritten for OpenGL, ensuring the best performance for the platform. Via Origin, SimCity is cross-platform compatible, so all players will be able to play together across the same servers. Players will be able to play both versions with the same Origin account, allowing them to seamlessly continue their cities, achievements and leaderboard progress across the PC and Mac.
SimCity has been rated PEGI 7 and is currently available for PC and will be available for Mac on June 11. For more information regarding SimCity, please visit www.SimCity.com <http://www.SimCity.com>
