Some say a picture is worth a thousand words. So how much is a video worth? 10,000 words? 1,000,000? Ah, whatever – let’s just say a lot, OK? We know you’ve all been requesting to see SimCity gameplay, so the wait is finally over! Below you’ll find the first true gameplay video narrated by Lead Designer Stone Librande.
In this video, Stone goes over what it’s like to build a city from scratch, lay down the groundwork, and work towards creating a specialized city, in this case, a casino city. But is this the only way to play? Oh no – not at all. In fact, this video only showcases one of the many different ways you can play SimCity. It’s not just about building a city with the biggest population. Or one that makes the most Simoleons. It’s about building the city that speaks to you, whether that’s a casino city like the one Stone makes in this video, a trade city that focuses on mining for minerals and taking advantage of the Global Market, a tourist city that brings in jet-setting Sims from different regions, or any sort of combination of the above.
Whether you play in your own private region, create a bustling group of cities with your buds, or work together with up-and-coming Mayors, the choice is ultimately up to you. What kind of city do you want to create? Let us know in the comments below!
