The next SimCity gets an intro trailer [Video]

I am a really big fan of the SimCity game, well at least up until SimCity 4 I was, so when I heard that Maxis and EA were working on the next version of the game I felt my anticipation level rising. That was until I found out that SimCity was going to have to have an always connected to the web requirement as well as only being available for download via EA’s Origin service; and I wasn’t alone either as evidenced by the uproar that hit the web following the announcement.

All that aside however SimCity is being built around a whole new graphics engine that provide players with a whole new level of interaction with the game as well as incredible detailed city units to build. To give you an idea of what we can expect EA and Maxis have started posting videos of the new SimCity world with this one being the first of what will probably be a deluge of videos by the time the game launches on March 5, 2013.

I’m still not sure if I’ll be willing to fork over the money they will want for the game given the archaic restrictions that EA is placing on the game but after seeing this game video that decision is getting harder to make.

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
