Way back in April publisher EA and developer Maxis announced that their newest city simulation game, SimCity, would be coming to Mac on June 12th, but as astute gamers may have noticed it doesn’t seem like that actually happened. In a new announcement however, EA and Maxis have laid out the new plans for when Mac gamers will be able to join in on the latest in the series.
The new date has been revealed as August 30th, so fans that only own a Mac will finally be able to try their hand at playing mayor of a city. And, as stated before those that have purchased the PC version of SimCity will receive the Mac version completely for free, plus both the PC and Mac versions will indeed be connected and allow cross-platform play.
So, Mac fans and PC gamers with Macs will both be able to get SimCity as a digital release exclusively through Origin on August 30th. Unsure about the game, read what we at Capsule Computers have to say in our own SimCity Review.
