Following a series of problems that plagued the Windows PC launch of SimCity, as well as several delays of the release of the Mac version, it looks like SimCity is finally on its way to the Mac.
Originally tapped for a February launch, SimCity for Mac has pushed back on several occasions. However, in June, Electronic Arts announced through a blog on the game's website that it would be moving the release date of SimCity for Mac to August, and has recently set 29 August as the release date.
To make up for the delay, EA will be making the SimCity Launch Park, which was made available to early adopters of SimCity for PC in update 4.0, available to buyers of the Mac version of the game.

SimCity Senior Producer Kip Katsarelis wrote on the SimCity blog in June that the decision to delay the Mac version of SimCity was made because "we do not believe it is ready for primetime yet."
"We want to ensure the Mac is a great experience for our players and that is why we are taking more time," he added.
SimCity for Mac is available to pre-order from EA's SimCity website for £44.99, or for £64.99 if you would prefer the Digital Deluxe version, which comes with French, German and British city sets.
SimCity requires an Intel Core 2 Duo processor or later and Mac OS X Lion or Mountain Lion.
Below is the original trailer for SimCity, as previewed in January ahead of the game's Windows release.
