Maxis is nearly finished with the offline mode for SimCity, with the developer saying the offline mode is "in final testing." SimCity was launched last year, experiencing some truly bad server issues.
EA, to the dismay of its fans, launched SimCity without an offline mode. The company received some bad backlash, and after months of the game being available to consumers, EA and Maxis decided to add offline mode to the urban planning simulation title. The SimCity Twitter account posted today: "Update 10 is in final testing. Almost there Mayors."
