this may be a spolier for some but this makes me want to play the game even more and more very interesting can not wait to be a part of the launch when this game comes out
I hope the graphics are improved to make the game look a little more realistic. I don't care all that much about graphics as much as I do game play but I was expected this new engine of thiers to look more.. well realistic. To me it looks very cartoonish. Hopefully this is still is the beta stage.
If you would watch some interviews or check blogs and stuff you would see it is supposed to look that way since they go for a "Model City" style, like if you were building props, buildings etc. for your model train at home.
Maybe eventually there'll be a fan made mod where it'll be hi-res realistic. But like they said, it's going to be a 'model' like graphics.
Keep in mind, the glass box simulation engine is more realistic in the sense that it SIMULATES more realistically. There's not a new graphics engine. Also, you should remember that there are lots and lots of buildings, like factories, houses, etc that they need to design as 3d models. They've also got to script the day and night cycles, the people in it, when it appears, etc. THEN they'll work on textures.
Or maybe they do want a model-cartoony look. :\
To be honest, I kinda prefer the cartoony quality!
In the new SimCity, they have tons of graphic filters, trust me, the graphics will be awesome
I think i like it cartoony
Can't wait to Sim all the Cities that I've been designing in my head while at work.
heck! i got designs nearly 30 years old...always use to draw "maps" of cities during class, playtime, and even in my sleep. my room floor would be covered with paper-designs
Used to tape together graphpaper and design whole citys when i was a kid nearly 40 years ago, when the first SimCity came out I was in heaven, Can't wait to see the Newest SimCity!!!
I am dying to see the new SimCity
Im so excited for everything about this game, man that beta cant come any sooner
The suspense of waiting for a chance to play even a demo of this game is killing me I want to play this so much because after only watching the videos Sim City 4 seems to be lacking something major... but I'm trying to occupy myself with other games till I can play even a demo of this game, this is simply another "look at us you cant play yet but were close" kinda teaser trailer again, even if it is the intro, I simply cant wait for a playable version of this game, either completed or not, I want to create so many cities, I might (if included) play a 4 or 6 person map all by myself the first time through... I simply cant wait!
I do have a question to any game developer who has the time to respond to this: I am wondering what the perks for the Digital deluxe VS the hero's and villains pre orders are??? and what the bonus content is???
The diffrence is you get 3 city types along with the Villian and hero set, Plus the plum bob city park for pre orders. Thats all I have seen.
I know all of that comes with it, problem is there is a unique transportation system with each of those cities too, I wonder what they are, that's why I asked so I could change my pre-order if it was anything good
I was just thinking. Since SimCity is connected with EA Sports, and now that you can work with friends in this new version, what is stopping EA from integrating EA Sports games like Madden into this game. Imagine, you build your city into a metropolis and so do a bunch of your friends. The citizens demand a football stadium so you build one. And every week during football season, you log in and play your town's football game, or hockey, baseball, basketball, whatever.
While granted this would be interesting, I see several flaws, errors, and difficulties doing this, both games would have to have a patch that would allow them to show all the possible buildings surrounding the stadium, and with that I dont think that the X-box could handle all that graphics load. Maybe in a new era that might be possible but before any of that happens I want to see snow, and the buildings that would be used to get rid of it, such as a road crew building, snowplows, salt trucks, the list goes on, but I think that this would be an interesting idea.
Me too. And if it doesn't end up on the game for release, it would sure make a nice expansion pack later. 8-)
I think the snow idea is awsome and there should also be rain storms with lighting, but I would love it if we were able to drive around the cites like in simcity 4. You could do missions that give you money. Or perhaps you could take over a cargo ship and use that to trade with other people. But also planes, transporting sims to other cities and it would be great to pass time, while your city is growing, They did it before they can do it again.
OMG! I cant wait any longer... Can someone please tell me when the beta comes out?
Thank goodness it's a rocket and not a shuttle. Otherwise I would've been a bit grouchy. I can't wait for this game anymore!
wow! strategy video is only in alpha version,then how will full version look like!
i cant wait.beta me plsss.i was playing simcity 4 before but that is nothing with new simcity
looks so good
I'v been waiting for this game for years! Maxis couldn't have done a better job.
The pc download for simcity 5 is available on amazon.com on february 8 2013 :)
Can someone tell me when the beta will come out. I can't wait to play sim city
WTF you guys seed in february 2013 that simcity will come out
wtf you guy because everyone know that it will come out in march 2013 :/
I always found the graphics in simcity 4 not very good but in simcity 5 they look awesome
Showing all the different possibilities. Pretty boss
I hope the game will live up to the hype.
The graphics looks horrible! And why "no" to subways? And I hope that city area will not be so small. The first impression is very bad, no pre-order from me 100%.
Ok, really? I can help explain this to you since you havent gotten it yet... One the graphics are not bad that is because its in the Alpha stage (as far as the public knows) which means while playable it is bug and glitch ridden with many problems still. Secondly the size is limited because of the new software "Glass Box" which is a half server half your computer ran program and it wouldn't be feasible to have a massive city and have every single building be able to shake, catch fire, and all the other animations unless your the top 0.05% of people with over priced super computers as a desk top.
And on a side note personally The graphics are at least 5x to 10x better than Sim city 4, and there are curvy roads, modifiable plopables, and everything (mostly) that sim city 4 wanted to be. Unfortunately the turn off for me is the lack of terraforming (which was shown at the E3 conference but wont be in the game)
(I missed one thing) The subways are "not in the game" because they were replaced with their surface dwelling counterparts... street cars, I find this better because it will show you where the traffic is rather than "hiding" it under ground. That's another thing that this game is all about SHOWING how and where everything works or moves
Graphics look great for me. Not bothered by no Terraforming or Subways. I think the other details more than make up for what is lacking. I am very excited for Sim City to come out. It will certainly be making it's way to my PC game collection.
Any date for release of the demo?...
Wow, signing in today was a REAL PAIN. Just imagine when this game goes up how bad it'll be... Diablo 3 day one troubles will be small in comparison...
I hope Sim City is worth all this trouble. and $80
I've signed up for the beta at least 5 times. I can't believe it's finally only one week away from coming out!
When will we have a new video, I need it
I'm so excited about this game, I'm going to be stuck on it 24/7 when it comes out
I see that people are continuously complaining about the graphics. I personally like the graphics. But I'm sure many people don't realize is that this Simcity looks like a place where sims from the Sims 3 would live. I'm positive I wasn't the only one who noticed the change in the look of sims between The Sims 2 and The Sims 3. The Sims 2 looked much more realistic than in 3. But 3 is soo much more in depth. That's how I feel this Simcity will be. Have faith fellow citybuilders... this will be great!!!
what are system reqqs
Errm hasn't anyone else noticed the strangelove reference?? Listen to the very end with the rocket... Anyone who plays UT-99 With strangelove mutator will know what I'm on about, or seen the strangelove film...
