IGN PC has posted a “SimCity 4 Progress Report” over at their web site. In it they mention a very interesting thing that many of you might be pleased to hear.
Those of you waiting for SimCity 4 shouldn’t be tortured for too much longer. The game just recently went alpha, and now the team is working hard on hitting the beta stage, which should be in the next three to four weeks.
The article also mentions superhighways, the use of the missile silo seen in one of the new IGN movies (see below) and the use of police during riots.
