SimCity To Release In Feb 2013, SimCity Social Announced

EA Maxis’ Lucy Bradshaw announced at the EA E3 2012 press conference today that the upcoming SimCity would be launching in February next year, along with its glorious multiplayer components, so don't spend all of your Christmas money in January. In fact, just see if you can get your folks to do the present thing in March, that'd be way easier.

Needless to say, there was absolutely no talk of the controversial internet requirement, just a breezy trailer that has made us want the game more...if that was even possible.

Bradshaw also confirmed the existence of SimCity Social, which will be bringing the SimCity experience to Facebook with the tagline "More City, Less Ville". I'm not ashamed to say that I'll probably play the shit out of it.

There are trailers for both below...

Visceral Games showed off the first gameplay footage of Dead Space 3, confirming that the game will incorporate drop in-drop out co-op, and showing off a gameplay video that seemed far more concerned with rattling off rounds than blowing the limbs off of creatures that have just made you poo your pants.

Hmmm.

UK Games Charts | 2nd June 2012

The Ghosts are still occupying the top spot as we head into E3 week, with Max Payne 3 sitting pretty in second place again, though both saw a reduction in sales, falling 35% and 39% respectively. Meanwhile, FIFA 12 is back up into the top three, pushing Dragon's Dogma down to fourth. Resistance: Burning Skiesmade its debut at #12, not bad for a Vita exclusive, and thus lending more weight to the argument that we need more Vita games!! Battlefield sneaks back into the top ten after hefty BF Premium rumours, and Diablo III drops down.
