EA and Maxis have announced that SimCity 5 (aka SimCity) will be heading to Mac as a digital download via Origin in February 2013, also the scheduled launch window for the PC version.
The Mac version of SimCity will feature-match the Windows PC experience, allowing players on both platforms to compete or collaborate to create a new world.
Future mayors will be able to collaborate through SimCity World – a feature that connects players through CityLog, compete in Global Challenges, compare their accolades in Leaderboards, and affect the global economy in the Global Market.
Those interested in an early start at changing the world of tomorrow can head over to the SimCity.com beta to sign-up page. Participants will have the chance to play SimCity on PC before it ships in February. Those that are chosen will be asked to provide their views and feedback on their experience playing to help improve the development of the game.
