It is about time we heard from SimCity Societies Destinations. IGN has the scoop on the upcoming Expansion pack for the game.
Create resorts, casino’s, amusement parks and more to bring in travelers to your cities!
The new expansion tasks players with creating a five-star resort city that attracts a wide range of travelers and the disposable cash in their pockets. There are a number of different resorts you can build in your city, and you’ll want to place them carefully because you can only have one of each kind. It’s worth considering that different resorts cater to different needs, both in terms of the experiences that travelers are seeking and the money they’re willing to spend. When creating new cities, you can also place brand new landmarks like snowy mountains and volcanoes that you can eventually open up as new attractions.
Each resort provides accommodation for your travelers and also satisfies one specific need. The relatively inexpensive Nature Resort attracts travelers who don’t want to spend a lot of money and those who are seeking the worship-related satisfaction it provides. Just a step up in terms of cost is the Beach Resort. It doesn’t provide worship but does offer leisure. The Amusement Park is pricier still and caters to travelers who are seeking entertainment. At the top of the tree is the ultra expensive Resort Casino, which is perfect for celebrities and gamblers who are looking for a little gaming action. Better still, you can even reap the financial rewards of your travelers’ gambling loses.
Each type of traveler is seeking something different and has a different amount of money and time to spend in your city. Day Trippers typically come in for the day and are looking for leisure or entertainment. Executives stay a bit longer and seek out higher quality leisure and entertainment experiences. They also demand first-class dining. Gourmands have basically the same demands as the Executives but they put more of a priority on fine dining. Pro Gamblers like a little fine dining and entertainment but what they’re really looking for are casinos and other gaming venues.
