Maxis have confirmed that SimCity's first major expansion will release in just under two weeks, after details of the funfair-themed DLC pack leaked out on Green Man Gaming.
The online retailer accidentally posted and quickly pulled the details, but not before everything was recorded by diligent Let's Player HypnotoadProductions [via EG]. As you can see in the video below, the expansion will contain numerous theme park rides and facilities. "Build the amusement park of your dreams, right in the middle of your city," urges the blurb. "Classic rides, vehicle rides and thrill rides allow you to make just the theme park you want."
Maxis officially confirmed the DLC on Twitter, along with a release date. "Some of you may have seen thrilling new #SimCity content that arrived too early at the gate," reads the missive. "It's coming May 28. We think you'll be amused." Pricing is still TBA.
This looks like fun, after all, we're all big fans of Theme Park. But bugs, glitches and development priorities notwithstanding, we're not entirely convinced that current size limits will actually allow us to build a massive theme park "right in the middle" of our cities. By "entirely," I do of course mean "at all."
