Due to playing catchup, you’ve probably already seen it, but if not, oh goodie! EA put a trailer together to try and show you how to avoid disasters in your simulated city, but doesn’t really explain much at all…
EA has released a second SimCity scenario video although, they tweeted a ‘scenario 3’ video yesterday, it is actually the third part in what is supposedly a four part series of scenario videos and just explains a few more details about the game, they seem to have skipped the second one.
