Maxis and EA have announced that SimCity is set to get its first big expansion. It’s entitled “Cities of Tomorrow” and as the name would imply, the expansion will drop-kick your cities 50 years into THE FUTURE. The expansion will bring with it new modes of transportation, new building designs, new regions and new city specialisations. It won’t bring the decidedly futuristic option of offline play, however.

“Cities of Tomorrow” will be made available on 12 November this year for both PC and Mac. Oh yeah, and it’ll cost you $30. Yep, just over R300 for an expansion; or R270 if you pre-order.
