Round 2 of the Simcity Beta

So just in case you didn't get a chance to try out the new Simcity beta the first go around. Maxis and EA have just announced that there will be another round of beta testing! With the new round slated to start on February 16th.

Details are scarce in regards to if it will be the exact same, 1-hour playtime constrained beta as the first but atleast some people will have a chance to try it out if they didn't get a chance last time.

I played in the closed beta about a week or so ago and got a number of hours with the game. I thought it was awesome. Very well done and true to the original Simcity's (good thing) while still being able to offer a new, graphic overhauled, up to date take on the series for a new installment. Saying i'm excited would be an understatement.

You can sign up here: »www.simcity.com/beta

The only thing putting me off this game are the minuscule maps.

I really like simcity, but I have decided to pass on anything that has EA attached to it.

Which is a shame, because I wanted to try out the new version of the game.

Today is the day. I just got my invite for the beta: round 2. BUT the 2nd beta only runs for 1 single day. So play as much as you can.

I released a video of 1 of the cities I built. It is a single city, built within the 1 hour time limit. If you want to check it out, you can watch it here:

(Sorry for the low res quality, it was pulled from using my in-game (Origin) livestream.)

I had great fun with this game for 3 hours + ! 1 hour each time of course.

Really looking forward to it!

Simcity will always rock and this one just rocks even more!

Your lost. I am glad I didn't miss out on Battlefield 3 by doing that.

I can't wait until the next Command & Conquer as well!
