SimCity offline mode spotted in new EA survey

Posted on News

A bit of good news maybe coming out of EA, there seems to be a questionnaire going that asks gamers if they would want to see an offline mode in SimCity.  Originally discovered by a Reddit user, CVG reports that the survey asks gamers what new features they’d like to see in the game moving forward, with the new “Classic Mode” being considered.

‘Classic Mode’ is explained as follows, “In offline or online mode, play a single functioning city using cheats and unlocks allowing you to create the perfect city.”

More potential new features include:

  • Guilds
  • Bus and Street Car Lines
  • Bridge and underpass creator tool
  • Road and city name personalisation
  • One-way roads
  • Shared online events
  • Larger cities
  • A subway system
  • Terraforming
  • Co-op mode
  • Import The Sims
  • Military complex management
  • Crime syndicate management
  • A monorail
  • Cultural additions such as new museums

There are also hints of tools that will let players recreate elements of London. The survey states, “Create a portion of London with Big Ben in your city, where you’ll always know when it’s time for tea. Includes Double Decker Bus Terminal that cuts down on traffic with their larger passenger capacities.”  This could be a great addition to the game, as players have been asking for this mode ever since the game came out.
