The defining city simulation is back! Create the city you desire and make the choices that shape your city and power the Sims within it. Invest in heavy industry and your economy will soar-but at the expense of your Sims' health as pollution spreads. Implement green technology and improve your Sims' lives while risking higher taxes and unemployment. Team up with your friends to solve global challenges: launch a space shuttle, reduce carbon emissions, or build magnificent wonders. Compete on global and regional leaderboards to be the richest, the dirtiest, the happiest or the best place to visit! The Sims in your city speak to you directly and it's up to you to respond to their needs. Will you listen and be the toast of the town, or abuse your power for fame and fortune? GlassBox technology gives you the power to impact individual Sims lives for the first time. Sims will have jobs, spend money, attend school, commit crimes, and even die. Every decision, big or small, affects the Sims living in your city.
