This Town Ain't Big Enough: CitiesXL 2011


CitiesXL was half okay. It was an okay city builder, which was precisely what lots of people wanted. Sadly it wasn't a great MMO, and that bit of the game soon curled up and died. Fortunately it didn't mean the end for the series, which is back again for 2010/2011, hopefully improved in its single player capacities. There's a little video and some information over on the new site, which was revealed today. The release date is October 14th, but the interesting news is that the next game will keep the "world" system, just in what appears to be an offline capacity. So you'll be able to build a series of cities across a planet of your own, something like that. Will it just be the old game patched up to work offline? I'll drop them a line and find out some more about what we should expect.
