New DLC comes to SimCity

Balloons n' stuff....

It’s come to our attention from Kotaku that a new DLC pack is coming to SimCity for 9 US dollars. What can you get for those 9 dollars? Well, you get balloons and airships. That’s it. The Airship Set includes the airship mass transit option, a terminal, a balloon park and an event blimp, which will be in use during major events in your city. Not much, but at least it proves the EA is still only interested in making money off the newest entry in the SimCity series.

SimCity is a popular city-building game series that has seen releases of numerous games from 1989 up to 2013, when the most recent game was released. The most prominent release in the series was SimCity 2000. The game allowed players to create a 3D city from scratch, which included building basic infrastructure (roads, pipes, electric cables, etc.) and zoning the city to allow people and businesses to move in and blossom. Later games in the series improved upon this basic concept.

SimCity, the latest game in the series, was released in March of this year and was plagued from day one with many issues. The game included an always-on DRM requirement, which became a major problem for countless customers, when, due to massive launch day sales, the servers for the game were unable to handle the unexpected number of players. Many were unable to access the game for several weeks until Electronic Arts, was able to bring enough servers online to cope with the increased demand. This whole debacle resulted in the game being downgraded by several sites after the issues came to light. The first SimCity game in a decade was plagued by issues other than the DRM meltdown.  These issues netted the game a 64 out of 100 on Metacritic.
