SimCity Launches On Mac With Native Version and Cross-Platform Server

SimCity Launches On Mac With Native Version and Cross-Platform Servers

After 6 months of waiting, SimCity for Mac is finally here and it looks like the launch has gone more smoothly than the launch of its PC counterpart.

EA said the scheduled February release was delayed by EA so they could “ensure a great experience” for Mac players and this version of game is specifically designed for Mac with OpenGL.

SimCity for Mac will feature full cross-platform support to facilitate ‘region play’ where the cities of multiple players are connected to share utilities and citizenry, with PC and Mac Mayors able to play in the same regions.

Ea made a statement on the release;

In general, most Late-2009 iMacs, mid-2009 MacBook Pros, and mid-2010 MacBook’s meet the SimCity’s minimum specifications. Other systems not listed here may be able to run SimCity, but can experience graphical or performance issues and would require an OS upgrade.

When the PC version launched earlier this year, EA had severe issues with the amount of people wanting to access their online-only game-play, the resulting chaos concluded with 15 new servers and free games for most of the community.

You can pick up SimCity for Mac from EA’s Online Origin Store at $40 for the standard game, or $60 for a Deluxe Edition that includes additional content. Purchases cover both platforms, so gamer’s who already bought SimCity on the PC will get the Mac version for free.
