The footage comes completely from in-game play and shows off several of the features EA and Maxis are touting for the title. Multi-city gameplay is seen, as is an overview of the different types of power cities can use. A quick preview of the power overlay and building animations leads into a look at the different types of high-tech industries players will be able to create, including a space program.
Barring any delays, SimCity is scheduled to be released on March 5 in the U.S. and March 8 in Europe. Though the game requires a constant internet connection, it does not require players to always participate in multiplayer mode.
