Reticulate all the splines!

The SimCity beta starts up on January 25, and will last through the weekend until January 28. Want to get in on the beta goodness? Well go sign up for the beta then! You have until 6PM on January 20 to register if you want to see for yourself why Destructoid is very much looking forward to Maxis' newest city building game.

Sadly, you'll only be able to play about a "one-hour slice" of SimCity in the beta, but you can play it multiple times. Hopefully any of you that make it into the beta will get an idea if the new SimCity will be for you. If you don't want to bother with it though, expect a new preview of SimCity up on January 25 to read up on the latest content I got to check out from a recent studio visit.

You can now mod SimCity but only so far

If you want to get truly crazy with Maxis' flawed city builder you may be out of luck
