Farmville creator Zynga’s announced a city-based version of its ultra-popular asset-management line of casual games.

CityVille will go into beta in the “coming weeks,” according to Zynga.

The game will be released in five different languages – English, German, Italian, Spanish and French – and is the first international launch for the firm.

The game will be the first of Zynga’s to feature 3D-rendered buildings and characters. It’s a city-building sim (dur), and feature the need to balance citizens’ needs, run restaurants, harvest crops, and whatever else.

You’ll be able to visit friends’ cities, helping them secure items, help with crop growth and building, send gifts and trade goods.

There’s more through there.
