SimCity for Mac arrives on August 29th

The splines of SimCity for Mac have been reticulating for longer than many mayors would like, but that's about to change come August 29th, when the game officially hits online servers for download. The release of the Mac version -- which costs $40 for the standard edition, or $60 for the deluxe version -- allows EA to finally make good on its promise of cross-platform, multi-player city building. If you happen to own both a Mac and a PC, you'll find that one purchase allows you to download both versions from EA's Origin store. Naturally, we're crossing our fingers that SimCity for Mac will have a smoother launch than its PC counterpart, but it seems that we'll have a definitive answer by month's end.
