A new instalment into the highly-acclaimed SimCity series has been a long time coming, and PC gamers preparing to get their building and management fix have a few options when considering pre-ordering.

MyGaming checked local retailers’ listings to see what was on offer, and there are 3 SimCity editions available.

The Standard Edition – features the vanilla-flavoured game.

The Collector’s Edition – includes a collectible Steelbook case, which features a lenticular 3D artwork on the cover sleeve.

Limited Edition – features the SimCity Heroes and Villains pre-order incentive, which includes new characters, crime waves, a Super Hero HQ and an Evil Villain Lair.

The game has been receiving some pretty good reviews so far: SimCity: constructive success?
