Developer Maxis has announced that their latest city simulation title SimCity (AusGamers 9.4/10
) is now available to play for American residents, however not without running into some technical difficulties. Users have been experiencing difficulties gaining access to the new title, with varying messages including server downtimes, connection issues and queues.
EA has taken to their Origin Twitter
to assure users that the issues are being looked at, and that changes are also being made to increase further stability for the upcoming Australian and EU launch tomorrow. Origin spokesman John Reseburg has given the following statement on the launch issues:
Due to the high demand for SimCity, Origin has experienced some delays that have impacted a small percentage of users. The team has been working non-stop to resolve. We are also making changes to prevent further issues, and we're confident that the Origin service will be stable for our International SimCity launches later this week.
For those that are still unable to access their game, EA are encouraging you to contact Origin support
for further help, or to check out their Twitter
account for up-to-date coverage.
SimCity will be available tomorrow for Australian gamers.
