Will the new SimCity work with Windows 8?

★★★★ Newbie

I was planning on updating my computer to Windows 8, but wanted to make sure I wouldn't have any problems playing the new SimCity when it is released on March.

 

Thanks - Randy

Are there any known bugs with running simcity on windows 8? It works fine except water, the boundary lines and the road assist lines are not visible. I updated the drivers on my graphics card. Anyone else have this issue?

I have windows 8 64-bit and the game plays fine, aside from the server issue and bugs of coarse - those issues are probably what you're experiencing, it's not a windows 8 compatibility issue.

Thank you - I also use Windows 8 64 bit - I just deactived the Origin in Game - saw this tipp in another thread - but not sucessful. But it's not really bad - it works fine on my Windows 7 PC - I was just curious if I could it play it also on my brand new Ultrabook - Mass Effect is working fine.

Have you tried turning off the Origin overlay?

 

Origin-->Application Settings...-->In Game-->Uncheck "Enable Origin In Game"
