Latest SimCity requires Origin and constant internet
Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
EA’s forthcoming new SimCity title will require gamers to maintain a persistent internet connection while playing, developer Maxis has revealed.
Lead designer Stone Librande told Joystiq that the game’s emphasis on multiplayer, regional impact and use of a player-influenced global economy means that it can only really work if everyone is online.
An EA rep also confirmed that although you’ll be able to buy the game from a number of different vendors, you will have to play it through EA’s Origin platform.
