SimCity coming to Mac on June 12

Single purchase includes both PC and Mac version

With the PC version of SimCity having cleared its first month anniversary since launch, EA has announced a June 12 release for the Mac version of the game.

The Mac edition of SimCity will be released exclusively as a digital copy via EA’s Origin service and other online retailers

In an interesting move, SimCity will be a cross play title, allowing the user to play the game on Mac and PC, regardless of which version they buy.

Since the game is Cloud based, player will also be able to access their cities from across both platforms.

Users who have previously purchased SimCity for PC, either as a physical or a digital copy, will receive the Mac version as a free digital download on Origin when it is released.

The release of the Mac version of SimCity comes more than 23 years after the original title was released for the Macintosh and Amiga platforms, which was then followed by the PC and Commodore 64 versions.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
