Cheetah Speed Returns To SimCity


Maxis has brought back Cheetah Speed to its newest SimCity game. The speed setting was originally included but removed over a month ago temporarily.

The developers made the announcement over the SimCity Twitter feed, stating:

Yes, it’s true – we’ve recently brought back Cheetah Speed. We’re also working on Update 2.0, so stay tuned for more info.

For those who do not know, Cheetah Speed is the fastest possible time setting in SimCity. Allowing players to speed through the construction and daily lives of their growing cities. Maxis removed the mode not long after release to help ease the server loads.

In the Twitter post, Maxis said they are working on Update 2.0 as well. The developer did not go into detail as to what this update will include however.

Despite receiving a lot of anger from critics and the gaming community, SimCity has done quite well, selling over 1.1 million copies in the first two weeks of its release. Recently Maxis released a free DLC piece, the Nissan Leaf car dock.
