The game will be also available from other digital retailers. PC users will get the Mac version for free.

This facilitation surfaces up so that individuals can play together on the same server without being concerned of what platform they are using.

Also, it was noted that at the launch SimCity’s servers were affected with traffic which resulted ultimately in annoying & irksome gameplay experience. As we move forward in time, this thing of the past has been sorted. This is proven by the fact that the company dished out a ‘Cheetah’ speed mode back on for reducing the load on the servers after SimCity had released initially.
