SimCity's Four-Day Beta is Jan. 25; Here's the Tutorial Level

The SimCity beta will be from Jan. 25 to Jan. 28, and registration is underway now on the game's official page, the SimCity Twitter feed said this morning.


Perhaps not coincidentally, that video above showed up on YouTube around the same time. It showcases the game's opening tutorial.

The Tweet said that beta users will get to play an hour-long slice of the game. It's a closed beta, with no word on how many registrations they're accepting. Players may replay the hourlong chunk as many times as they want during the four days. It's PC only, no Mac.

Yo PC master race:

I'm just getting into PC gaming (don't yell at me) but I'm currently building a computer pretty much just for this game. You best not disappoint EA / Maxis.

Anyways, do you guys think a GeForce GTX 650 graphics card is decent enough to run this game smoothly? I don't want to spend $200+ on a GPU.

I am going to be using a Intel Core i5-3470 Quad-Core Processor. Do you guys think getting a 3570 instead would be better (only about a $30 difference).

Thanks a million in advance.
