Today is the day Mac-owning SimCity fans can get their hands on the digital download of the game that allows them to play with other people worldwide, regardless of platform.

Available only as a digital download, the game allows players on Macs to play alongside PC gamers as they move between the inter-connected worlds.

People that have already bought the digital or boxed version of SimCity for the PC are eligible to download SimCity for the Mac for free via Origin. Let’s hope the launch is a little smoother than the troubled Windows release earlier this year.
