EA has unveiled registrations for the second round of closed beta testing for their upcoming city-builder title SimCity (thanks Trauma). The new beta round will be running from February 16th 4PM GMT(February 17th 2AM AEST) to February 17th 4PM GMT (February 18th 2AM AEST) and will feature an enhanced beta experience compared to previous testing. You can sign up for beta access over here.

EA has also revealed a new trailer for SimCity, showing off the Limited Edition exclusive content Heroes and Villains. The limited DLC allows you to create organised crime in your city, but also the ability to upgrade your police force to a hero squad.
The Heroes and Villains set changes your gameplay by enabling you to create organised crime in your city and to upgrade your police squad to a superhero! Unlock a criminal mastermind by placing Dr. Vu's Evil Lair in your city. Get rich with high tech development, but then deal with the chaos that Dr. Vu's henchmen create in your city. Defend your city by unlock a supreme superhero. Place Maxis Man's Super Hero HQ and he will fight crime and protect your city.
Check out the trailer below for a glimpse at the action.

Played a couple maps today. It was enjoyable and quite a nice learning curve involved. Couldn't give a s*** about the always online required part, only concern is if they can sort out the server availability as lots of people having issues starting their maps.

Got into the beta today, so far I'm enjoying it. Took a few goes to get used to getting building density up to medium across the entire city, but managed 70,000 population by the end of an hour.

I'm definitely keen to purchase at launch if I can avoid the aussie tax.

edit: I also had a zombie outbreak :D
