Maxis has revealed a new trailer detailing all the natural disasters that will be featured in the upcoming SimCity revival. With four different disaster environments, the trailer showcases just how you can prepare for an alien invasion or earthquake simply by how you build and operate.
Disaster prevention begins with safety. We offer several tips to ensure the least amount of damage to your city. First, fire stations are your friend. Make sure you have enough fire trucks to protect your city in case of earthquakes, meteor strikes or something more ominous. Second, be sure to tip your hat to your police chief. When disaster strikes, make sure your citizens are adequately protected from the dangerous things that go bump in the night.

Lastly, a healthy Sim is a happy Sim even if their home has been swept away by a tornado. Don’t forget to fund your hospitals and be sure you have enough waiting rooms to handle the injured Sims who will come rushing through the door. These basic city service facilities will also help you rebuild after an earthquake, meteor strike, tornado, UFO invasion or another one of the yet-to-be announced disasters touch your city.
You can check out the trailer below, plus some very disaster stricken screenshots as well.

I'm pretty sure you can disable them, think you could in the last iterations too.

Haha, FaceMan bringing the gold.

Yeah those disasters just looked damn annoying. Good if you can disable.

Does this game have actual goals? Or maybe some achievements or something? I can't remember SimCity 2000 that well TBH. It was cool though.
