After nearly a year of teeth grinding Maxis has finally decided to give the players the option of playing the excellent remake of SimCity without the need of an Internet connection. Considering the storm of server problems the game faced at launch which left the game unplayable by a wide swath of the audience, this is very welcome news.

Don’t wait on the edge of your seat though, the company hasn’t released a firm release date but at least we know now that this isn’t speculation but actual news.

Patrick Buechner the general manager of Maxis Emeryville was heard saying the following via ENGADGET

When we launch it, all of your previously downloaded content will be available to you anytime, anywhere, without the need for an internet connection…we look forward to getting offline for SimCity into your hands as soon as possible.”

At least it’s something right?
