SimCity’s multiplayer component built from ground up – lead producer

Become a power baron or create a technological think tank!

Posted By | On 11th, Oct. 2012

SimCity will feature an extensive online component, according to the lead director of the game. In fact, it’s built from ground up so there will be very few issues with it. The game comes out next year, but is already shaping up to be something special.

“We really thought about this SimCity as multiplayer from the ground up. Cities are no longer in a bubble. You can play in a region with other cities, and there’s a lot simulation that’s going on between cities. You can play multiple cities or invite friends into your region and play with others,” he told during a Q&A after the game’s livestream finished.

“Things like power and water are shared across cities and you can purchase that power. You can share services like fire, education and garbage. You can also gift to one another, so money and resources you can create in your city, and you can also collaborate on great works.

“We have things like international airports that you can work on together and build up, and the airports will actually bring tourists into your region and allow you to ship more freight in and out. There’s just a lot more to do at this macro level of city planning.”

Become a power baron or create a technological think tank! The more you invest in a specific industry, the more influence you have over your region and the SimCity world. As mayor of a producing metropolis you can choose to provide goods to neighboring cities, trade on the global market, or keep it all for yourself. Your decisions also affect the global price of resources. Check the leaderboards to see your status as an industrialist, and make a name for your city in your region and the world!
