Electronic Arts has released a playable demo for SimCity Societies, featuring much of the new fan requested content and features that have been added to the game over the last few months through the five patches.

The demo includes the tutorial, a challenging scenario and two major disasters.

SimCity Societies got off to a rough start last year, with some fairly critical reviews primarily due to the lack of difficulty and loss of complexity.
