Virtual Game Environment Imagines The Cities Of The Near Future [Pics]
The upcoming SimCity expansion pack will let players engage in futuristic urban planning.
City-building simulator game SimCity goes beyond the limitations of today's urban technologies in its new future-centric expansion pack called Cities of Tomorrow. Set somewhere between the years 2060 and 2080, Cities of Tomorrow gives players both an inspiring and sobering look at societies that are underpinned by some of today's most advanced technologies.
To start, Cities of Tomorrow lets you choose between two new development trajectories. On one hand, there's The Academy, which gives you the tools to build a utopian society where Maglev trains and garbage atomizers are commonplace, and a large-scale wireless network called ControlNet controls it all.
