I’m not able to try this myself just yet, I’ll probably be able to once I get home. You can now pickup the new update for Societies which includes three new strategic modes (Basic, Hardcore and Nightmare) as well as many bug fixes. The file is huge, clocking in at 51 MB. You can pick it up on our Societies Patches page or download directly from here.
SimCity Societies Game Update #2 is released!
