Submission + - Maxis/EA admit SimCity could run offline. (ea.com) 1

Chas writes: Well, after a week or so of denying that SimCity "could not" be run in an offline mode, Maxis GM Lucy Bradshaw has reversed herself.

According to her blog, Maxis COULD have implemented an offline mode but "It wasn't part of their vision".

This coming to light after modders have come forth to show that the game can be played almost completely in offline mode.

And in other news, apparently they're also censoring their helpdesk number now as well.

  • Originally there was a comment about them acknowledging the opinions about offline play but saying they were invalid, as "thousands of people are enjoying play in the regions". Apparently, in hindsight, she/EA figured that would be too inflammatory and it was altered.
