The game offers a more detailed simulation than previous interactions of the genre. It offers an open world that can host the daily routines of nearly a million unique citizens, while presenting this to the player via an understandable interface. Through stats, dashboards and infographics you can see realistic traffic congestion, pollution, electric and water supply.
