Electronic Arts shows off SimCity BuildIt mobile building game in new gameplay trailer

November 19, 2014

Electronic Arts (EA) has just released a new trailer for SimCity BuildIt, showcasing the upcoming game ahead of its official worldwide launch.

Announced in September and soft-launched in select countries in October, SimCity BuildIt is a free-to-play iOS game based on EA’s popular SimCity open-ended city-building game franchise.

It’s touted by EA as “the most advanced mobile building simulation game.” And that may very well be true, judging by the impressive graphics on display in the game’s newly released trailer, which features actual mobile gameplay footage that looks as though it were from an animated feature film. Take a look:

  • Create and trade resources with friends and other cities
  • Unleash natural (and not so natural) disasters
  • Explore your 3D city from all angles with 360° controls
