THE BUZZ: EA and Maxis have released a new video for SimCity 5, showcasing the power of the Glassbox Engine used to power the game.

The game, announced earlier this month, is described by EA as, “a true rebirth of the franchise that brings the depth of simulation that has been the series hallmark for more than two decades and marries it with next generation accessibility and a robust multiplayer mode, giving players the power to change a world together.”

“For the first time in SimCity franchise history, players’ decisions will have long-lasting repercussions that will extend beyond their city limits,” the publisher added.

EGM’s TAKE: This engine certainly looks a lot more powerful than previous SimCity games. Not only have you got enhanced graphics but also improved AI running underneath. The simulation is said to run as close to real life as possible, however it’s not yet known how accurate that claim is. Fans of the series should be pleased with this latest entry.
