Many people found that SimCity was just a little to online when it launched, with a ton of server issues that meant a lot of people couldn’t play during the first few weeks, SimCity got a lot of bad press.
However it might be time to turn that bad press around, as the offline play update will be rolling out later today, allowing players to build cities offlien for the first time.
The update will be named Update 10 and will roll out at 6AM PT today, during which time there will be some server downtime that is expected to make the SimCity servers unavailable for a few hours according to EA.
EA have also published a FAQ page that will allow them to answer any questions you might have about the new offline mode, whilst explaining that players will still need to sign into Origin in order launch the SimCity game, after which it can be loading in an offline mode.
Let us know what you think of this in the comments below, is it too little too late?
