E3 2012: SimCity Social Announced, Heading To Facebook In Weeks

Developer studio Maxis announced at EA’s E3 press conference that SimCity Social is moving to Facebook, with added features and social media elements. Their trailer even took a jab at Zynga, saying that their game would be “more city, less ‘ville”.

Here’s a list of things highlighted in the sizzle reel:

  • Constructible worlds use traceable roads, drop-and-drop building templates
  • Data can be visually highlighted on your city map to gauge your progress
  • Cities can be crafted to fit certain themes, such as building around sports stadiums
  • Multiplayer will be a larger feature, with collaborative projects

Maxis closed out their presentation with trailer footage showing several cities being built and re-built, from suburbs to metropolises to construction-heavy sites. Citywide disasters were also shown, highlighting crime, traffic, and even a giant dinosaur attack.
