Electronic Arts has announced today that SimCity, released around a month ago on Pc, will be available on the Mac OS X platform in around two months, on June 11. The Mac version of the game will be available for free for all those gamers who already own the Pc version of the game: at the same time, those buying the Mac version of Sim City will receive the Pc version for free.
Sim City MAC is now available for pre-order on EA Origin: right now players will be able to pre-order both the Standard and Digital Deluxe versions. EA has also announced that the game will only be available digitally and that the MAC version won’t be a simple port of the PC game since the game will be optimized for Mac OS. A Core 2 processor and Mac OS X 10.7.5 “Lion” will be required to run the game.
EA has also confirmed that SimCity will support cross-platform play between the two versions of the game: this feature will also allow gamers to use the cities they have created with the Pc version on the Mac version as well by simply logging into the same server the city has been created on.
