If you hurry and sign up now, you can partake in the beta for the all-new SimCity.
Firaxis is holding a brief beta for the revamped SimCity running Jan. 25th through Jan. 28th. If you sign up over on the game's official site, and take a short survey, there's a chance you'll be given a code to play SimCity for up to an hour at a time next weekend. Unfortunately, the beta is only for PC users, but at least they'll be able to play the small segment of the game as many times as they want during those few days.
SimCity is due out on March 5th, 2013 for PC and Mac.
