If an hour of gameplay wasn’t enough for you during the last beta, you may be happy to know that EA and Maxis have today announced they will be launching a second closed beta, available for sign up from today.

The beta will begin on February 16th, lasting till the 17th from 9:00am EST Saturday till 9:00am EST on Sunday, and will feature what EA are calling, an “enhanced version” of the one-hour gameplay seen previously.

On the sign-up page it does say that “For a limited time,” you can “pre-order SimCity to guarantee your spot in the upcoming beta!”. I’m not sure if this means all those how have already pre-ordered the game will get access, but it might mean you won’t have to sign up again if you have already purchased the game.

Alongside the announcement of a closed beta, EA also released a new trailer, showing off the Heroes and Villains pack included in the Limited Edition content.
