Aspyr Debuts Mini-Site For SimCity 4: Rush Hour
11:21 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

In conjunction with the announcement last Thursday at the MacWorld Conference & Expo that Mac game publishers Aspyr Media will be bringing the new SimCity 4: Rush Hour expansion pack to our platform, Aspyr is now hosting a new mini-site for players looking for further information on the project.

The Rush Hour expansion pack expands player's transportation options in SimCity 4 by adding elevated train rails, monorail networks, and even a ferry system. The expansion pack will feature new "U-Drive-It" missions, in which players will get to race through canals and waterways, navigate their Sims through the city's railway systems, and even use a plane to perform some skywriting tricks. From the new webpage:

Your City is on the move! Take complete control of your city's transportation system including roads, rail, air, and waterways. Watch you approval rating skyrocket as you get your Sims on the go. Test your nerves with a new UFO disaster, snarl traffic with car accidents, and wreak havoc with train derailments. Seize control of vehicles and complete the all-new U-Drive-It Missions to improve your Mayor rating, unlock new buildings, and earn other rewards. Name streets, neighborhoods, mountains, and bodies of water to personalize your city.
The port, currently underway at Californian porting house i5works, is in early development, and is expected to be completed "later this year", according to Aspyr's Amity Lesko.

Head over to the website for more info, and to pre-order the game directly from Aspyr. Readers wanting to take advantage of their IMG Pro/MacGames CD discounts should wait a day as our very own IMG Store will start taking pre-orders shortly.
