That's right, this will be one of the shortest betas ever, running from January 25 to January 28, but it will give you a chance to try the game before just about anyone else and being first is what's most important in life, right?
You'll want to make your way to the beta sign up page on the official site. Make sure you're registered with EA and have Origin standing by.
To be exact, the beta runs from 17:00 GMT on Friday, January 25 until 08:00 GMT on Monday, January 28. So that's a weekend that many of us can write off immediately.
If you've not yet looked into SimCity, don't forget that we've written shedloads, no, cityloads of stuff about the game.
