SimCity Video Shows Water System and Pollution Effects

Posted on April 17, 2012 AT 09:15am

THE BUZZ: EA has released a new video for SimCity showcasing the power of the game’s new GlassBox Engine.

The latest video, narrated by gameplay lead Dan Moskowitz, shows how the water system works in-game—along with the effects of pollution on a city.

EGM’s TAKE: The GlassBox Engine has the potential to propel SimCity onto a whole new level of simulation. The engine actually simulates things various elements in real time, meaning that no two games will work out the same—and that your actions truly make a difference. If it works as good as EA says it does, then they will certainly have a hit on their hands.
