SimCity (finally!) gets an offline mode today in Update 10.
Readers may recall that back in January EA had stated that the offline mode for SimCity was in the alpha stages and that they would hopefully get it to gamers who desired it soon. Today is the day that we officially get to play the game offline.
Although you will need an internet connection to download the update, obviously, you will be able to go offline and play without a connection once you have acquired it. As for those wondering what this update, simply titled Update 10, has in addition to the long awaited offline mode, EA has a full FAQ up on their website.
One thing to note: If you were planning to transfer your online/multiplayer region to a single-player/offline mode, then you will be disappointed. No regions can be transferred between these two modes.
Are you pleased that EA actually listened to their fans on this matter?
