SimCity getting offline single player mode in next update

SimCity will receive an update that allows for offline play in the near future. Arriving as a free download with Update 10 for the game, SimCity‘s offline play will allow players to access all of their previously downloaded content in the new single player mode. The developer was last exploring the possibility of offline play for the game in October 2013.

While EA did not reveal a full list of details for the update, it did note that single player campaign save files will be stored locally, so players will no longer be required to have an internet connection when playing the game. EA recently allowed for official mod support of the game, which the publisher cites as a major reason for SimCity‘s new offline mode to begin with. Now, mods can be made “to the game and its components without compromising the integrity of the Online game,” an EA blog on the matter says. No release date was given for Update 10, though Maxis is in the “late phases” of wrapping up its development.



Now this makes me happy. I haven’t played the newest incarnation of Sim City, simply because back when it was released for Mac, it was still buggy, and slow, and it began to really chew through my internet data because it required a constant internet connection, rather than being the offline game that it’s always been. Hopefully this comes soon, so I can get back to spending my simoleons!!
