Sim City Has A Release Date For Australia

The new SimCity is looking increasingly nifty, but it's one of those games that I underestimated. People are super excited for this one it seems. Now it looks as though we have an official Australian release date.

SimCity will be available in Australia on March 7, 2013 and March 8 for New Zealand.

That's roughly in line with a global launch. Sim City is set for release on March 5 in the US and March 8 in Europe.

    Gah i really cant wait for this game.

    I'm still really undecided about this. It looks really cool, but EA are going be setting a new level of nickel and diming in it I bet. It's really putting me off.

    I've been playing SimCity 4 in anticipation of this... hope it can fuel my cravings for the next 4 months...

    I really doubt it will be any good. Sounds like they have ripped out a lot of the options you used to have.

    Looks to be a really nice game.

    But knowing EA they will stuff up the DRM and make it unplayable!

    its a shame.

    The video says "Coming Feburary 2013"
    Also, the graphics are crap.

      Seriously?, thats all you can say. February was probably an estimate and I for one love the look of the graphics. The tilt-shift art direction they took to make everything look small was a good idea IMO.

      I think we all should forget what you just said because it is so 5 year old talk. You go make a game, kiddo.

      The graphics look fine to me, also, this is not BF3, its not aimed at hardcore gamers thus needs to be playable on moderate specs

    Dear EA
    Please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please
    Don't ruin the franchise.

    Yours truly,
    Simcity fan since 1990

      I will 2nd this. PLEASSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEE EA BE CAREFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I have a feeling SimCity 4 will have way more options etc for gameplay and ontop of less stuff EA will make it always online + origin. So we may all be playing our old SC games.

    I dont like the fact that the full game is like 20 dollars more at the crazy 100 dollars!, but even if you bypass this and go retail import you are only likely to get one of the 3 major day one dlc the game has in locking off buildings you can have.

    Its like EA are trying their absolute hardest to make me not buy this game.

    Then Dont Buy it. Simple.

    Looks fantastic but the way they are pushing online makes me a bit skeptical.

      im in similar boat with you

      looks good, was pumped for a long time, but seeing how EA pushed the online DRM thing is bugging the hell out of me to buy this game

    Gahh, I've already bought BF3 this year and it's looking like I'm going to have to buy NFS Most Wanted too. I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with giving EA more of my money...
