To step away from The Sims for a bit: Maxis has officially announced SimCity 4 yesterday. Maxis' history started with SimCity in 1989, which became a world-wide top-selling game. After SimCity 2000 (1993) and SimCity 3000 (1999), several other versions of SimCity (like the SimCity 2000 Network Edition and SimCity 3000 Unlimited/World Edition), many other Sim-games (like SimTower, SimFarm, SimAnt, SimLife), now comes SimCity 4. This new edition will have many new features, upgrades and more since SimCity 3000 but the basis is the same: build a huge city and then destroy it, however you like. SimCity 4 is expected to be released in December 2002. 22 May a new site will open for SimCity 4 here
. The full press release can be read here
. The first presentation will be on the E3
on 21-24 May in Las Vegas.
