A second SimCity closed beta will go live on February 17, where participants will be testing an enhanced version of the game for one-hour. It’s the same part of the game which was tested in January, only enhanced. Those who haven’t already signed up can do so here. Registration ends on February 11. There’s also a trailer showing off the Heroes and Villains content included in the Limited Edition. The set allows players to create organized crime in the city and upgrade the police squad to a superhero status. Players can also unlock “a criminal mastermind by placing Dr. Vu’s Evil Lair” in the city. Get a supreme superhero to fight the evil doers by placing the Maxis Man’s Super Hero HQ in the city. SimCity will be available March 8.
