SimCity 5 is a few months away from release, and the beta is about to start. Either some crafty user has ignored the NDA and posted this video, or a viral marketer has done so in the guise of said user. Regardless, this is an 11 minute brand-new game play video of the beta version of SimCity 5.
The closed beta if from Jan. 25-28, and the game is set to be released on March 5 in the U.S. and March 8 overseas. The game will feature multiplayer support for up to 16 gamers.
