SimCity 5 Announced. Coming In 2013.

SimCity lovers, get ready. 2013 is going to be a year filled with hawking over a computer (or smartphone) screen and controlling each and every aspect of your dream city.

At GDC this year, Maxis SVP Lucy Bradshaw announced SimCity 5 will be coming in 2013. The official name will simply be “SimCity” and use the company’s new game engine “GlassBox”. According to Bradshaw, the upcoming game is a “true rebirth of the franchise”. Some interesting features to highlight include an enhanced multiplayer role as well as further reaching reactions based on decisions made in your city. On that same level, your reactions for your own city won’t just affect your own city anymore, but neighboring cities as well and for far longer into the future.

All in all it sounds (and looks) like an awesome game. Any SimCity players out there?
