Sim City

SimCity from Maxis and EA will be available at Origin for download on June 11. Cannot already be happy why EA unifies the game servers and users of Mac and PC will play on the same server, so we will share regions and other resources without any problems. Despite this we still a little reluctant for problems that were related to the gameplay out, because constant internet connection is required to play.

EA and Maxis have announced that the latest version of its popular Simulator will be available for OS X on June 11.
