SimCity has been surrounded by problems since its reboot last year, including having to deal with negative feedback due to the nature of its "always-on" gameplay. Now, EA's hoping to turn some of these frowns into smiles, announcing that SimCity's long-awaited offline mode will be available starting today. The update, after getting through its final test phase, began rolling out earlier this morning and should be at your mercy momentarily. As a result, EA says there's going to be server down time "for a few hours," so expect to put those city-building skills on hold for a little while. Don't worry, it'll be over before you know it. In the meantime, check out the video tutorial after the break.
