SimCity Cities of Tomorrow trailer gets invaded by aliens

EA and Maxis are aiming to bring you the cities of the future. And for SimCity, the future doesn't involve building out, but rather building up. A new trailer for the Cities of Tomorrow expansion shows off towering skyscrapers that take advantage of unused airspace to build upwards. Also, there are aliens, for some reason.

The trailer displays some futuristic technology, like wave generators that utilize hydroelectric power and garbage atomizers that efficiently dispose of excess waste. The quick 90-second trailer ends with a meteor crash and an invasion from an alien robot that looks an awful lot like Emperor Zurg from Toy Story.

To see what the future holds, check out the trailer below. SimCity's Cities of Tomorrow expansion is set to release on November 12 for PC and Mac.
