Before The Sims…there was SimCity. The legendary city-building game series is about to make a return this coming March and guess what, you might be able to check out a slice of the new SimCity very soon through the game’s beta test that is scheduled to take place from January 25th to 28th.

That being said, the beta will be offering only one hour worth of gameplay – although gamers can play it over and over again – and it is only available on PC. Nevertheless, the opportunity to play the game way before its eventual release on 5 March is pretty awesome especially for those that have played previous SimCity titles.

So, head on the official website of SimCity to sign up for a spot in the game’s beta test next weekend.
