CitiesXL Build Your Dream Cities Trailer

Somehow I have missed this when news first appeared, but apparently a new trailer showcasing in game footage of CitiesXL got released a few days back. Worth checking out if you are interested in city building games combined with economy incorporating thousands of other players :).

CitiesXL Release date pushed

The city building sim gone Massive Multiplayer Online, Cities XL, has had its release date in Europe pushed to early October 2009. I, for one, welcome this because it is always better to not the release the game until it is completely ready instead of rushing it to the market and failing miserably. Gamers do not forget blunders like that (AOC anyone?). The official statement follows:

In order to meet high expectations for our upcoming next-generation city builder game Cities XL, Monte Cristo has decided to shift the release date to early October 2009.

Focus and Flashpoint will distribute Cities XL on October 8th in the following countries: France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and Austria.

Also, Monte Cristo is proud to announce that we have signed a distribution deal with Namco Bandai Partners to distribute the game in the following countries: UK, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Spain, Italy on October 9; and Australia and New Zealand on October 8.

An announcement regarding North America publishing dates will come at a later date.
