Electronic Arts Updates Pounded Servers For SimCity

by Prima Games Staff

The demand for yesterday’s highly anticipated PC release SimCity went through the roof for Electronic Arts, to the point that the servers couldn’t take the demand – a lot of users weren’t able to get online with the game as a result.  EA has since apologized for the online trouble, and have launched a server update which “should help to improve game performance,” according to a representative.

The update should be live by the time you read this, and will include the following fixes:

Trading not working consistently

Unable to load/claim city errors (these are a big one amongst most users)

Getting stuck in a loop in the tutorial

If you’re still not able to get online, don’t worry, you will shortly, and then you’ll be able to experience the city-building phenomenon that’s bound to keep millions of would-be builders busy.  (Be sure to check out our SimCity strategy pieces in the meantime, including this helpful little piece.

SimCity is available now for PC and Steam.
