SimCity will make its way back to Macs as a digital download via Origin.
EA has announced the city-builder's return to Mac at Gamescom 2012, revealing that SimCity will be available in February 2013.
“Whether you owned a Macintosh or a DOS PC, we all have memories of laying down zones and reticulating splines from our youth,” said Lucy Bradshaw, senior vice president and general manager of EA’s Maxis Label.
“To the millions of SimCity fans out there, we’ve been listening and can proudly say that your calls have been answered. SimCity has a long legacy on the Mac and the team at Maxis is ensuring that it will be the deepest, richest and most accessible SimCity game yet.”
With its return next year, SimCity will engage an entirely new generation of PC and Mac gamers as they take charge of their own customised cities and build a world that co-exists alongside friends.
For the first time in SimCity franchise history, players’ decisions will have long-lasting repercussions that will extend beyond their city limits. Together, players will address real global challenges such as climate change, the search for renewable resources and natural disasters.
