SimCity With Offline Play Now Available

You’ve been asking for it – now get ready to play SimCity anytime and anywhere you go. The new Single-Player Mode is now available for SimCity as a downloadable game update (at no cost) for all players.

“We’ve listened to our players and today we are delivering against their most direct feedback with the release of the new Single-Player Mode,” said Patrick Buechner, GM of Maxis Emeryville. “Player feedback has helped us deliver 10 major gameplay Updates that have improved the experience with better tuning, new features and free content. This is the most definitive SimCity experience whether you choose to play Online or Offline.”

Getting the Update is easy, you will automatically receive it the next time you log-in to play. After the download is complete, you will have the option to play either way; the new Single-Player Mode, which enables Offline Play, or continue to play in the Multiplayer Mode Online.

The Single-Player Mode retains the same expansive feel of the core SimCity gameplay while adding more control over when and how your progress is saved. Multiplayer Mode continues to deliver the SimCity experience that includes SimCity World, Leaderboards, Achievements, dynamic pricing of resources in the Global Market and Cloud Saves.
