SimCity Cities of Tomorrow

New design lead takes the game in a new direction.

When 'SimCity: World of Tomorrow' was introduced, much of the focus was on the sociological direction and the return of Arcologies. But in a new video from the Maxis team, it seems that future tech is the basis for the new abilities and direction for cities in 'SimCity.'

These future techs includes fusion reactor tech, wireless control nets, omega substance, sewage conversion, Maglev trains, delivery drones, skybridges and MegaTowers. Much of the future tech involves city automation, including MediDrones, FireDrones, and LawDrones.
