New SimCity Gameplay Developer Diary Will Make Virtual Mayors Squeal

A new SimCity is coming, much to my joy, but so far the gameplay footage we saw was very specialized. Today Electronic Arts released a new dev diary video featuring Lead Designer Stone Librande as he builds his little version of Las Vegas.

I have to say, the gameplay looks absolutely lovely, with services like electricity and sewers included in the roads and limiting rectangular zones done away with. And the graphics…they’re just spectacular. 2013 can’t come fast enough.

Don’t believe me? Check the trailer out for yourself below.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
