EA has unveiled new details for upcoming Digital Deluxe Edition of the city building title SimCity, revealing various exclusives including three major world landmarks. While also including the landmarks, those purchasing the Deluxe Edition will find various new missions, achievements and also a variety of stylish buildings to help make your city stand out.
What do the Eiffel Tower, Bradenberg Gate and the Big Ben Clock Tower have in common? Besides being three of the world's most recognisable landmarks, they're also the three core components of the city sets that are available in the upcoming SimCity Digital Deluxe Edition, available exclusively on Origin on March 8. More than just window dressing, these three landmarks will influence and change your cities. Plop any of these three buildings and watch the surrounding buildings adapt and change to fit their style. Ever wanted to make your own city of lights? Plop down the Eiffel Tower and you've got your very ownSimCity version, all without leaving the comfort of your own home.
Check it out below for a glimpse at what to expect in the Digital Deluxe Edition.

SimCity will be available for PC on 7th March.

How much is the Deluxe edition on Origin for US customers?

I wonder how much Big W will sell this SimCity for? Hopefully not much more than UK game stores.

You've linked to SimCity 4, this is the fifth game simply branded as "SimCity" because someone in marketing got a pat on the back for being Fast & Furious

They're not going to remove the DRM, it's not something just tacked on the top to try to stop people pirating the game, they've woven the always-on requirement into the gameplay (what with having a virtual global market, affecting neighbouring cities, being able to invite friends, etc.).

That's not to say it wouldn't be possible to play the fundamental gameplay minus the social/multiplayer aspects without being always online, but just like with Diablo 3 it wasn't designed to work like that and I'd say there's about as much chance of them changing their mind as Blizzard is with D3 (ie. none).

UK Gamersgate seem to have decent prices.
40.45 pounds so just over $61AUD

Picked up a few Origin games from them.
