EA gauges interest in offline SimCity mode.
It was reported today by CVG that Electronic Arts is currently gauging the possible interest in an offline mode for SimCity.
This news comes in the form of a survey which the publisher sent out to several fans of the game. This survey listed a range of potential features that could feasibly be included, such as a “Classic Mode”.
This mode’s description is, “In offline or online mode, play a single functioning city using cheats and unlocks allowing you to create the perfect city.”
This mode seems to imply that it would indeed be possible to implement an offline mode for SimCity, despite the statements issued by Lucy Bradshaw earlier.
This is certainly good news if it is feasible and will be implemented. One complaint many gamers had with the game, after all, was the forced always online part.
Will SimCity be getting a fully offline mode? Or is this survey simply spreading false hope amongst gamers?
