A series of SimCity cheats and cheat codes have been published by multiple websites, soon after the release of the simulation video game developed by Maxis, and the following videogame guide explains how to cheat in SimCity 2013.
Since the SimCity cheat codes dont require a special trainer, they can be used by all players who have purchased the video game; however, some restrictions exist, meaning that the SimCity 2013 cheats listed below cant be used while playing the game in multiplayer, and some of them work only in sandbox mode.
SimCity or SimCity 2013 was officially announced at GDC (Game Developers Conference) 2012, as being a reboot of the SimCity series.
At E3 2012, EA revealed the first two trailers of the video game, followed by a closed beta test in August 2012. The title became available on March 5, 2013, in North America and March 7, 2013 in Europe, being published by Electronic Arts.
The PC video game known as SimCity was one of the most anticipated titles of 2013, but after its release, a series of problems have been reported by users.
Even if the video game received positive scores from critics, some reviews were modified several days later. For example, on March 4, 2013, Polygon published their SimCity review, awarding 9.5 points out of 10 to the video game published by EA.
One day later, the score was lowered to 8/10, and on March 7, 2012 to 4 points out of 10. SimCity is a video game which requires a persistent internet connection allowing players to connect to EAs servers.
When the title was released, the high volume of customers caused network outages leading to disconnections, game crashes and other issues, similar to those experienced by Diablo 3 fans.
Some publications such as IGN delayed their reviews, being unable to connect to the SimCity servers, while Amazon decided to temporarily withdraw the video game from its marketplace.
In response, EA released a SimCity patch which disables some of the games features including the online leaderboards, achievements and regional filters.
On March 7, 2012, an unsatisfied player recorded his online conversation with one of Origins support department agents.
The customer tried to ask for a refund from Origin after he purchased SimCity 2013, but in exchange he was threatened by Origins agent, who told him that disputing the charge will eventually lead to an Origin account ban.
