Cities XL, the massively ambitious, massively multiplayer city-building strategy game, is sort of Robert Moses meets World of Warcraft. Developed by Monte Cristo, the game, with its click-and-drag interface, will be familiar to SimCity fansóbut itís no rehash of Will Wrightís revered franchise. Cities XL allows virtual mayors to interact with one another online, and when you arenít playing, youíll be able to keep tabs on your city via a website. Cities XL will be released on Oct. 8 in the European Union, Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific islands, with an as-yet-unannounced North American release to follow.
