The SimCity reboot is finally letting users play without connection to the Internet.
The news came this morning by way of Maxis General Manager Patrick Buechner, who explained the patch. The feature will be a free update to all SimCity players, adding a Single Player Mode. This mode lets players access the main game without an Internet connection, which was previously impossible. There will be also be other features included in the new update, which you can check out here.
Originally released last year, the title had extensive server issues upon launch, and the always-online function pushed many fans away.
A date has not been set for the update, but Buechner says “we look forward to getting Offline for SimCity into your hands as soon as possible.” We will have more info here on CGM as more details arise.
