Maxis Announce SimCity Cities Of Tomorrow Expansion Pack
New Building & Transport Styles

It appears that hot on the heals of their Red Cross fund-raising effort, Maxis have more SimCity news to share. It was announced today that that first expansion pack for the troubled city building simulation, titled Cities Of Tomorrow, is coming and will be released on 15th November. Set fifty years from today, players will be able to upgrade their metropolis with neon-clad buildings, install monorail systems, and generally turn their city into something like Blade Runner (but without the replicants, sadly.) Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your viewpoint on making people pay for it) it appears the expansion pack will not provide an offline mode for the game or increase the size of city limits, although there is mention of more verticality with the new additions.

You can check out the announcement trailer by hitting the jump.

Those of you that are eager to give your cities a futuristic look can pre-order the expansion by heading over to the listing on Origin, although the price currently sits at £29.99. While Maxis have scrambled to fix the many, many things that were wrong with the game upon its release, we recognised that SimCity had the capacity to be fun as soon as it stopped being so damn broken. You can read all about it in our review.

I'm sure all these dlc packs make them a fortune, but I wish they'd focus more on what the customers want.

Did they ever get around to increasing the city limits, and activating Cheetah speed?

And console versions would be nice, please, EA/Maxis. I'm sure you'd make decent money from the game, and ridiculous amounts from the dlc, and I'd imagine the next gen consoles could handle the game on reasonable settings...

I think they activated Cheetah speed, thou' for a long time it was the same speed as the normal one (Bunny speed). Doubt there will ever be bigger cities, and with all the DLC that will be available you will soon wont be able to fit it all in one city :P
