The expansion takes cities 50 years into the future, and gives players the option of developing further using clean technology.

It also allows players to build vertically with multi-zone MegaTowers that extend high into the sky and dwarf the rest of the city.

“Will the world of tomorrow be a utopia powered by clean energy or an industrial society consumed by mass commercialism?” asked Maxis Emeryville GM Patrick Buechner.

“With Cities of Tomorrow, players can build the future as they imagine it.

"Transport your sims on MagLev, power your cities with fusion reactors or tidal wave generators, manufacture a legion of drones to serve your sims and build massive MegaTowers that dwarf modern skyscrapers."

Cities of Tomorrow will include new regions, new future technology, new city specialisations, new transportation methods, and a new disaster.
