Earlier in October Maxis unveiled a new gameplay trailer
for their upcoming strategy reboot SimCity, showcasing several key features with Lead Designer Stone Librande. The strategy video gave a brief overview of how certain infrastructures are vital to a city in its growing stages.
Continuing the strategy gameplay is a new trailer from Maxis with Lead Developer Stone Librande back again to discuss Multi-city, a new feature that allows budding neighbourhoods the ability to share infrastructure.
With Multi-city play, you no longer need to provide all the required city infrastructures in one city. Build a police station and share your growing police force with the greater region. Have your friend build a fire station in a neighbouring city and soon you’ll see their fire trucks putting out flames in your city. Just like the world around you, neighbouring cities support each other through shared resources. These are just a few examples of the Multi-city play that you’ll see in Stone’s gameplay strategy video.
Built from the ground up to be a fully connected experience, Multi-city play in SimCity gives you the option to choose how you play. When you login and pick a region, you can decide to claim all the cities for yourself, invite your friends into your region to play alongside you, invite anyone in and make new friends, or join someone else’s region.
SimCity will be available in March 8th, 2013 and you can check out the video below for the great overview.
