SimCity coming to Mac on June 12

With the PC version of SimCity having cleared its first month anniversary since launch, EA has announced a June 12 release for the Mac version of the game.

The Mac edition of SimCity will be released exclusively as a digital copy via EA's Origin service and other online retailers

In an interesting move, SimCity will be a cross play title, allowing the user to play the game on Mac and PC, regardless of which version they buy.

Since the game is Cloud based, player will also be able to access their cities from across both platforms.

Users who have previously purchased SimCity for PC, either as a physical or a digital copy, will receive the Mac version as a free digital download on Origin when it is released.

The release of the Mac version of SimCity comes more than 23 years after the original title was released for the Macintosh and Amiga platforms, which was then followed by the PC and Commodore 64 versions.
