The reboot of SimCity coming from Electronic Arts and Maxis is going into a closed beta next week, which was revealed through the official SimCity Twitter account as well as a newly opened registration page.

The beta will take place for just a few days, between January 25 and January 28. If you want to jump in, you'll need to punch in your details into the registration page before the registrations close. Participants for the beta are chosen completely at random, so I hope I get in!

Registrations are easy, you just get asked how much you play games, did you play the previous SimCity games, and how many hours you'll be able to participate in the beta.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
