Ahead of the highly-anticipated SimCity launch on March 5th, EA and Maxis have announced that users can beta test the game from Friday, January 25th through Monday, January 28th. Interested players can register for the beta now — but unfortunately, the beta test is limited to a one-hour sample, and it's also worth noting this is for PC users only. It's a bit of a tease, but at least gamers won't have to wait much longer for the full version. If you want to get your one-hour taste of SimCity, head here to sign up, then just get ready to squeeze as much out of that hour as you can next weekend.
