SimCity: Cities of Tomorrow launch trailer duels philosophies

A launch trailer for SimCity: Cities of Tomorrow takes the form of twin in-universe commercials produced by rival powers.

The premise of the trailer pits the scientific-minded Academy against the greed-is-good conglomerate OmegaCo. OmegaCo's commercial lampoons the Academy's focus on green technology, pointing out its expense and arguing that the trees shouldn't have been growing there in the first place.

In return, the Academy alleges that OmegaCo's focus on robotic drones takes Sim commuters' jobs, and that renegade robots are a danger the city can ill afford. Plus, the Academy's clean technology produces floating trains, and you'd be a fool to pass that up, it argues.

Cities of Tomorrow launches on Nov. 12.
