EA are trying to wrestle the mighty Zynga social empire and their latest gambit is SimCity Social on Facebook, which is now in open beta. They've just released a new trailer declaring "more city, less ville."
It's a 50 second long peek at the new social network game complete with a specially made soundtrack at the Ville series expense. Maxis want their Mayoral crown back.
FarmVille and CityVille are arguably following the formula of Maxis' SimFarm and SimCity, but the studio is hitting back with SimCity Social. Maxis know a thing or two about building cities.
You can check out the open beta of SimCity Social right now on . Fortunately for the true SImCity fan you need only wait until early next year for the real next instalment in the long running franchise created by Maxis. The new EA social app is full of micro transactions and it's best you know a ton of people to help your city flourish.
