SimCity survey gauges interest in offline mode and bigger cities

Apparently, Microsoft isn’t the only company considering straying from its vision of online-only gaming. Maxis’ much-criticized SimCity may also sever ties with the cloud to offer an offline mode for players.

“Classic Mode” would offer a “single functioning city” that can be played online or off, and can be toyed around with cheats and unlocks. It’s one of the many “potential features” EA has name-dropped in a survey sent to players.

Other key features include bigger cities that are twice the current city size. There could also be one-way roads, subways, and terraforming–all things that sound like they should have been in the game’s original release.

There’s also the intriguing idea of importing Sims and neighborhoods from The Sims. For a glance at the survey, check out Reddit (via VideoGamer).
