SimCity Offline Is Coming

Patrick Buechner :

"I’ve wanted to say those words for quite some time, so my apologies that I didn’t take the time to say Happy New Year first.

Yes, Offline is coming as a free download with Update 10 to all SimCity players. When we launch it, all of your previously downloaded content will be available to you anytime, anywhere, without the need for an internet connection. We are in the late phases of wrapping up its development and while we want to get it into your hands as soon as possible, our priority is to make sure that it’s as polished as possible before we release it.

So, until then… testing, testing and more testing. As one of the final steps, we’re putting Offline into the hands of some of our most hardcore players, the DevTesters. This group of volunteers is going to put Offline through its paces before we release it."

The story is too old to be commented.

Yup. And now when the sales are not good anymore, they say "finally we managed how do it".

Yeah, right...

Won't ever see my money anyway.

Just as I lost interest in this game - and I was one who would have bought it without this fiasco.
Maybe I'll pirate it just to set a signal that their business model sucks.

Looks like I will finally be buying this game then.

Obviously they didn't get the sales they wanted doing it their way.

Should have been offline at launch. What happened to Maxis (other than EA of course)?

Finally. After a year's wait for this, I'm going to give the game a try.

About bloody time!

I bought the game on release day, played it once, vowed never to play it again unless ea removed online requirement.
