From the makers of Cities in Motion.

Could possibly be what Sim City should have been.  It's certainly going to have much, much larger maps.

Out 10th March.  I'll be getting it.

This looks practically identical to Sim City in style, but looks really good.

It looks good.

I probably wont be getting it any time soon though.

Games like this need to be multiplayer imho.

Paradox are involved thus should = epic.

Although like most Paradox stuff I expect there will be hundreds upon thousands of DLC's for it....

I'll be getting it anyway, was a massive fan of Cities in Motion and also Cities XL (not theres but a good game just badly implementated)

Paradox games aren't usually playable for like 2 years after release.

Paradox have published it I think, not made the entire thing I think it's an outside studio. Still it's a great sign.

If only the multi million dollar abortion that was The Sims didn't stop new Sim City games from being created :( Now we need another Civilisation game since we haven't had one since Civ 4.

Yeah.  Got it and got my city up to around 5k population so far.  Pleased that traffic still seems to be flowing nicely thanks to some well positioned flyovers.

Everything seems to work so far.    Much better than Sim City.

Went ahead and bought it yesterday. Got the city up to around 3k, everything still running smoothly.

Finally a citybuilder with a modern engine that kept the classic simcity gameplay and improved on it. ;)

The closest game I've ever played to a city builder was black and white 2. I liked it mostly for the ability to kill other tribes

So what is the objective in these city builders? Everytime I play them I get bored cause I have nothing to do other then tell people where to build stuff.

This games great, my biggest city so far.



About 6k people, spent way to much time figuring out how to sort out the traffic problems, linking the industrial areas directly to the highway helps loads.

Yeah.  But when you are able to zone office you will find there is less demand for industry and that your factories start shutting down.

Make sure you have a good location for offices and for high density residential.  If your tower blocks are relatively close to offices and industry then they won't be adding much to traffic elsewhere.
