SimCity Amusement Park DLC leaks; officially launches on May 28th
by Vlad Dudau



For those of you that can't get enough of the new SimCity we have some good news: a DLC is just a week away. The new content was leaked earlier and ingenious folks have saved everything before EA deleted the posting.

The add-on is called the Amusement Park Pack and, as the name implies, it adds theme parks to the game. The official description goes likes this: "Build the amusement park of your dreams, right in the middle of your city," reads the official description. "Classic rides, vehicle rides and thrill rides allow you to make just the theme park you want."

You can watch a video below that explores a bit of what's coming and here's the actual awesome news: the folks at SimCity actually responded to this leak and they announced on their Twitter page that this DLC will launch on May 28th though there's no word on pricing just yet.

Well, that's probably as close as we're ever going to get to a new ThemePark game.

Yeah. Once you plop this down in your city, there will be no room for anything else ;)

Cool. I'm not surprised it took em this long to release it given they just cleared up most of the issues, but I've definitely seen what there is to see (though I haven't built all the great works yet...just the Solar Farm and Space Center so far. Working on the airport in a resource challenged part of the region o.o only 700 metal to go)

It seems stupid to pay for some extra modules to a game. Probably going to charge £10.99 as usual for Sim City (or £5 if you know the product key websites ;))

Shame I'm still gunna drink that unpasteurized milk from EA though!

Indeed that's the annoying thing for me, I recently purchased the game and find i've so little room once i get going to do anything.

I remember having such massive city's in Sim City 3000.

I was so excited about this game, but now that it's out it just bugs the heck out of me.... I just want an old style SimCity... no micro cities... heck SimCity 1 had bigger maps if feels like

Yea but in Sim City 3000, one city can do everything. The focus of this game is to make smaller cities and make them work together. I will just make one education city with a massive population and use this in an entertainment city.

Sorry, but that is one really forced justification for the crappiest Sim City city size limitation ever....

It's not a forced justification. That what was said before the game ever went to beta. I personally am happy they did it. Means the game actual has a challenge to it instead of being stupidly easy like the previous games. You actually have to put thought into what you are doing.
