About SimCity 4

In SimCity 4, you don’t just build your city, you breathe life into it.

Sculpt mountains, gouge riverbeds, and seed forests to lay the groundwork for your creation. Then construct the most realistic metropolis you can imagine. Your city comes alive with the hustle and bustle of construction crews, the snarl of traffic, and the activity of your Sims.

Move your personalized Sims into your city and watch as they go about their daily lives. Build mansions on mountainsides, raise skyscrapers downtown, and build transportation networks to form a massive region of SimCities that share and compete for resources.

With every decision you make, your city and your Sims will respond for better or worse. In SimCity 4, your city pulses with the life you give it.

  • Bring your city to life – Create and control the most life-like metropolis you can imagine.
  • Form mountains, carve valleys, plant forests and raise oceans. New landscape creation features give you unprecedented control to lay the groundwork for your ultimate city.
  • Experience life in the big city – From mellow traffic flow to commuter hell, noontime crowds to nighttime calm, partygoers to troublemakers.
  • Touch your creation – Feel the pulse of your city in the most responsive, personal, and satisfying SimCity yet.
  • Protect your Sims – Dispatch police cruisers to fight crime, wrestle control of a tornado before it strikes, or cap an erupting volcano threatening your citizens.
