Simcity finally gets its offline mode

It seems that Maxis the developers behind Simcity may not have been completely honest when they said it was impossible for the latest Simcity game to have an offline mode.

“In Update 10, you can still play solo in Regions on your own, or in Multiplayer with people from around the world,” he wrote. “What’s new is the Single Player Mode, which allows you to play the game Offline by yourself. And because your saved games in this mode are stored locally, you can save and load to your heart’s content. Our team will be delivering a follow-up blog that will outline the full details in the near future so stay tuned.”

“So what does this mean for the Online game? All of the benefits of being connected will remain including access to Multiplayer, the Global Market and Leaderboards. And all of your pre-existing saved cities and regions will still be accessible should you log-in to the Online game.”

Along with the offline mode coming modders will finally get the chance to mod the game with permission from the developers, as long as they follow the five guidelines from the developers. The announcement of the offline mode was made just a couple months short of it’s one year date. The only thing left to do is wait and see if this will help the beleaguered game.
