Maxis explains how to deal with disaster in SimCity

Never understimate the effect of a good old fashioned alien invasion

Maxis has launched a new trailer for next year's SimCity showing off how disasters will make their return.

The video tackles everything from loiterers outside city hall and two donut shops opening up next to each other to explaining disappearances as a result of alien abductions.

The real fun comes when your city is hit by tornadoes, earthquakes, meteor strikes and even a full-blown alien invasion.

the video is available to watch over on YouTube and SimCity is due out on PC and Mac at the beginning of 2013.
