SimCity requires internet access to be played

News PC Simulation EA

While EA usually keeps a nice little stranglehold on all titles coming out for the PC courtesy of their Origin service, those wanting to pick up SimCity will be able to do so through plenty of different ways as EA has revealed that the game will be available through a number of digital distribution platforms.

Though there is one little issue with the game. In fact, a game that pretty much offers zero online experience and focuses mostly on single player will force you to be connected to the internet whenever you want to play. Seems like always-on DRM isn’t a thing of the past… Then again the Lead designer Stone Librande explains that this is actually for the benefit of the global economy of the game itself among other things, but what about those who want to play their games offline once in awhile?
