Maxis' city-building simulation game for Facebook went into open beta today. Players can now access the SimCity Social Facebook app and begin playing the game weeks ahead of its official launch.

SimCity Social is Maxis' attempt to incorporate an enormous social and friendship component into its city-building sim. Players can build their own cities and show it off to friends. Players can also visit and interact with the cities created by those on their Facebook friends lists. The game was announced early this month and shown to Polygon last week.

The PC SimCity is currently in development and is expected to be released in early 2013.
