SimCity unveils details of Cities of Tomorrow

City-builders are bracing for the inevitable impact of Cities of Tomorrow, the first expansion pack for SimCity. To increase the levels of excitement even further, lead designer Stone Librande features in a shiny new developer diary, talking all about MegaTowers, new city specialisations, and the influence of “plausible future technologies”.

Maxis Emeryville is – appropriately – abuzz with the new expansion, with GM Patrick Buechner explaining that players can “build the future as they imagine it”.

Transport your Sims on MagLev, power your cities with fusion reactors or tidal wave generators, manufacture a legion of drones to serve your Sims and build massive MegaTowers that dwarf modern skyscrapers.

Cities of Tomorrow will hit PC and Mac on November 12th in the US and November 15th in Europe – and you will need this year’s original SimCity to play.
