SimCity Apparently Already Has Bonus Content, System Specs, 16-player Multiplayer

EA has already launched an Origin page for its new SimCity, revealing that those picking up the Digital Deluxe Edition will be getting a range of content that includes supervillain lairs and European city packs.

Those buying either the Digital Deluxe or Limited Edition sets will get access to a range of superhero content, including a superhero and supervillain themselves (the game has individual Sims, so they'll appear in-game), along with their relevant buildings (or lairs) and special events (the villain goes on a crime wave).

The Digital Deluxe version alone comes with three themed packs to let you build British, French and German neighbourhoods.

Interestingly, the Origin page also has a bunch of system specs, as well as mention of up to 16-player multiplayer (how that works with the announced "Social Flow" isn't quite clear). Those specs are below.

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+ or better or Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 2.0GHz or better

Operating System: Windows XP/Vista/7

RAM: Windows XP: 1.5GB Windows Vista and Windows 7: 2GB PCs using a built-in graphical chipset are recommended to have 2GB RAM

Graphics Card: ATI X1800 or better* nVidia 7800 or better* Intel 4100 Integrated Graphics or better*

DVD-ROM: 8x or better

SimCity [Origin]


    I want the game to look exactly like that concept art.

    I was so excited to hear about a new SimCity. Then I read the word 'Origin'.

      Good that you noticed Origin. One less person I would not want to see on SimCity.

      People seriously need to get off their high horse about not going to origin. It's like people having a cry when software came on optical drives and you only had a floppy drive.

        Its more like getting your CDROM drive and every game you put in it getting eaten and destroyed so you cant sell or trade them. And every time there was a problem at the LG factory your CDROM drive would stop reading them until something on the other side of the world was fixed.

        And should the factory close down, all your CDs get destroyed.

    Origin? Pass...

    Maxis just aint Maxis anymore
