SimCity gets Aug. 29 Mac release

SimCity is headed to Mac Aug. 29, publisher Electronic Arts announced today.

The Mac version will be compatible across platforms, so Mac players will be able to join their Windows PC counterparts and control the destiny of their cities from either platform. Those who've already purchased SimCity for Windows will also be able to download the Mac version free of charge through Origin, EA's digital distribution service.

SimCity's Mac version was originally slated to ship June 11 but was delayed to August in early June.

"We have made this tough decision because we do not believe [the Mac version] is ready for prime time yet," SimCity's senior producer Kip Katsarelis wrote at the time on the game's official website. "We want to ensure the Mac is a great experience for our players and that is why we are taking more time."
