Build the city of your dreams!
Build the city of your dreams and watch as the choices you make shape your city and change the lives of the Sims within it. Every decision, big or small, right or wrong, has real consequences for your Sims. Invest in heavy industry and your economy will soar—but at the expense of your Sims’ health as pollution spreads. Implement green technology and improve your Sims’ lives but risk higher taxes and unemployment. In SimCity, you’re the Mayor and how you run your city is entirely up to you!
For the first time, SimCity will feature Multi-city play where you can go solo, invite friends or join with neighbors to build multiple cities in your region! Collaborate or compete with friends to grow the fastest population, create the most jobs, educate the most Sims and much more! Access SimCity World to connect to global markets and participate in regional challenges!
Incredibly Deep Simulation — Every Sim, every car, every building has a purpose in SimCity. New data layer technology provides easy-to-read information, giving you the power to make choices that will shape your city and change the lives of the Sims within it.
Model-Like World — Poke, prod, tinker, and destroy a visually engaging world unlike anything you’ve ever seen! Unleash your creativity and design your city with new zoning and design tools. Customize buildings to reveal additional functionality and unlock gameplay benefits.
Specialize Your City — Choose your strategy then specialize your city. If you desire more Sims in your region, build a casino resort and watch as your city becomes a major tourist attraction. If your city has large coal deposits, specialize in power and fuel the cities in your region.
Control Multiple Cities — With Multi-city play you can interact and influence an entire region of cities – alone or with friends! Cities can share services and resources, working together to build Great Works projects benefiting all cities in the region.
