EA Ships SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition This Ultimate Compilation Includes SimCity 4 Rush Hour Expansion Pack REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - Sept. 25, 2003 - Electronic Arts (Nasdaq:ERTS - News) today announced the release of SimCity(TM) 4 Deluxe Edition in North America. Players can now make the biggest cities with the most comprehensive and exciting SimCity(TM) ever. SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition includes the best-selling SimCity(TM) 4 and the franchise's first expansion pack(a), SimCity(TM) 4 Rush Hour, that focuses on the #1 most requested feature among fans, transportation. In the SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition, players can create a megalopolis by weaving together a tapestry of cities ranging from a bedroom community to a high tech urban center or a vacation destination to a farming village. Similar to the original SimCity 4, players can create a region of interconnected cities that share and compete for resources that are linked by a fully integrated transportation network. Players use "god-like" powers to create mountain ranges, carve valleys, and lay rivers to construct the most realistic metropolis imaginable. The SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition simulation engine gives players immediate feedback so they can react to the needs of an expanding city. Now individual buildings and their lots provide important feedback to the player. Players can personalize their Sim and immediately move him or her into any area and watch them experience life around town and get instant information on the city's progress. Each decision has a greater impact and gives players the ability to respond more effectively. The highly anticipated expansion pack, SimCity 4 Rush Hour, is included in the SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition. In SimCity 4 Rush Hour, players have the ultimate level of control over their city's transportation network by completely taking charge of roads, rail, air, waterways, and even vehicles. Players solve missions that range from good to evil. Players that accept good missions such as catching car-jackers and thwarting bank robbers will earn reward buildings and other vehicles. Players that decide to be lawless and drive the get-away car will earn more Simoleons, but their mayor rating will take a hit. As players gain traction by fixing transportation problems and solving missions, they watch their mayor approval rating soar and their Sim population grow! Players choose from all-new road types including wide-avenues, suspension bridges, or one-way streets, as well as map out seamless regional networks that whisk Sims from one city to another. Additional options include going global to create a metropolis based on an all-new modern European building set or personalizing new creations by labeling streets, mountains, neighborhoods, and points of interest. Players can also wreak havoc with all-new disasters including a UFO invasion, Autosaurus Wrecks, massive wrecks at railroad crossings, and the occasional car fender bender. SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition includes tutorials to help new players get started and all-new gameplay levels. Now players of any skill can create the city of their dreams. SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition is a robust and content-filled compilation that allows players to build the ultimate living, breathing megalopolis. The SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition will be available for a suggested retail price of $39.99.
