Update 10 is available today for SimCity, meaning you can finally play the game offline. Without an Internet connection. By yourself. Like every single past Sim City game ever.
EA has an FAQ on what you can expect, such as how there won't be leaderboards, achievements, and some other things because you're playing offline. The Global Market is still available, but all the prices are fixed.
They also shared some cheat codes for you to make a ton of quick cash. That was nice of them.
