Gamers attending Gamescom will be able to check out the connectivity features of the new SimCity, which is due for both PC and Mac next February.
SimCity World is the connective tissue that allows players to boast about their progress through CityLog, compete in Global Challenges, compare their accolades in Leaderboards and affect the global economy in the Global Market.
Eager mayors who are interested in getting an early start at changing the world of tomorrow can head over to www.SimCity.com/beta to sign-up for the SimCity beta. Participants will have the chance to play SimCity on PC before it ships in February. Those that are chosen will be asked to provide their views and feedback on their experience playing to help improve the development of the game.
