Well it looks to be true! A German magazine has revealed the first (probably renders) images of SimCity 5 to be announced officially next Monday during EA’s Livestream event. Judging by the looks of these images, it seems to keep the same top-down isometric view with 3D graphics, something I always wanted for a SimCity 5. Judge for yourselves!
If you’d like to learn more about SimCity 5, Rinconsimmer have posted the article from the above magazine, and although translated, it does detail some of the features you can expect from this game.
Lucy Bradshaw: Because we were busy with The Sims and Spore, and we wanted to make sure SimCity had excellent artificial intelligence, a decent multiplayer mode, and finally get curved roads and 3D graphics with ease. So you can change the camera angle and the houses disappear automatically by reducing the zoom view.

Missed the second live Showtime chat last night? Yeah, so did we. I think we were thrown off by the fact there was a second one, which I don’t quite know why there was. I digress, if you missed the chat last night, watch the replay below:
We here at The Sims Hub love a bit of machinima, hey, who are we kidding? We LOVE machinima, we literally live and breathe it! That could have something to do with the fact our resident admin Jonny (me *blush*) is the director of the machinima series, Alone. I’d like to take this oppotunity to tell our fans what’s up next in the series, and give you some little hints about some very exciting things that are happening. Head on over to our studio’s website, CleverBox Pictures, and find out for yourselves.
You may or may not remember that sometime last year we posted about a new world from Pyronium3 called Setra. It looked amazing back then, and it’s now available to download and looking better than ever. Take a look below and download it now!
Many would think Egypt is a place of relics and ancient history, but these days you’ll find that there’s more than antiquity. A modern paradise has risen from the sands. With the use of state of the art technology and the funding of the richest Sims, Setra was founded. Among the ancient pyramids of old now lies a modern settlement, welcoming all who are drawn to its gleam.
This is a few days old, so forgive me. But it was too good a review to miss posting about. I present to you, the Lazy Game Review of The Sims FreePlay. So if you’re still unsure about what the game actually is, or just haven’t decided to download it yet, check this review out and decide for yourself.
Fancy your chances at play testing a future Sims game? Then take this quick survey and you may be selected to do just that! What Sims game exactly is unclear, perhaps a new Expansion Pack, new spin-off and something bigger? Only EA know, and only those living in California, Redwood Shores to be exact, will find out.

EA’s latest world offering for The Sims 3, Lunar Lakes, is heading to the Store this week! Check out the PR and new screens below.
Transport to a World of Mysterious Surroundings in The Sims 3 Lunar Lakes
The Newest Digital Offering for The Sims 3 is Available This Week Across North America and Europe
Today, EA announces The Sims 3 Lunar Lakes is now available for digital download exclusively at The Sims 3 Store. Set on an intriguing new planet full of the eerie and unknown, The Sims 3 Lunar Lakes is one of the most unique and far-away worlds ever created for The Sims 3. Having settled on this foreign planet several generations ago after their spacecraft became disabled, Sims have been hard at work to establish a thriving society on Lunar Lakes. Now complete with fully functioning roads, schools, businesses and agriculture, Sims have settled into three areas of the world. The first location is a flat expanse of land called ‘spaceship plain’ built on the disabled spacecraft area. The second area is a craterous colony where bohemian farmers live along the shores of freshwater lakes. The last locale is settled by a group of stragglers who inhabit the edge of society, pursuing their own creative dreams.
Players have the opportunity to explore the subterranean dwellings of Lunar Lakes and discover the mysteries that are waiting to be revealed on this planet. One of the prominent locations is the science lab, which has been built from the remnants of the crashed spacecraft. Many Sims work at the lab and have discovered a number of fascinating scientific findings about the planet. For one, the world is powered completely by alien crystals that are embedded into the planet’s rocks. Through excavation, Sims uncovered these crystals and the importance they bring to life in Lunar Lakes. Sims have also discovered the Tree of Prosperity – an exotic plant that bares fruit which give Sims bonus skills when eaten.
The Sims 3 Lunar Lakes enriches the story of The Sims3 by offering players new clothing, challenges, mysteries and stories. The Sims 3 Lunar Lakes requires The Sims 3 base game to play.
