Next week is a big week for SimCity! Why? Because on October 9, 2012 at 10am PST (don’t worry – there’ll be a replay!) we’re going to be a part of the first ever Maxis Live Broadcast where you'll hear from both the SimCity and The Sims 3 development teams. Best part, Mayors? The Maxis Live Broadcast will be the exclusive destination for the world premiere of live SimCity gameplay! You know what that means, right? We are playing the game live. So if you've wanted to see SimCity in action, this is the event for you. Make sure to sign-up for the event here.
In addition to showing off live gameplay for the first time, we’ll also be conducting a Q&A session during the broadcast where we’ll be answering questions directly from fans like you. Don’t miss this opportunity to not only see the game, but also the chance to speak directly with the Maxis team. Got a question? Write it in the comment section below and we’ll pick a few to answer during the broadcast in addition to all the ones we receive live. Keep in mind, since we’re still hard at work building the game, there’s some topics we won’t be able to address at this time. But we’ll do our best to answer what we can!
Don’t want to wait a week to see gameplay? Well, you don’t have to. This Thursday we’ll be releasing our first gameplay walkthrough video narrated by Lead Designer Stone Librande. As you know, there are many ways to play SimCity–from population growth to acquiring the most wealth—in the latest video Stone offers hints and tips for players interested in learning about building out a big business in the game. Check back here on Thursday to see the game before we show it off live to the world on October 9.
