A new trailer takes us behind the scenes at the making of SimCity BuildIt, the upcoming urban planning simulation game that's due for release before the end of 2014 for Android devices, among other platforms.

The trailer, narrated by EA Mobile's leader Jason Willig, shows off a bunch of footage from SimCity BuildIt, which really does look impressive with full 3D views of the cities. In addition to the familiar SimCity features like road and building construction, utility maintenance and disasters, SimCity BuildIt will introduce the idea of crafting goods and resources that can be used by the player or traded with others.

It sounds like the game will be a free-to-play title when it launches, but hopefully the "freemium" business model won't be a requirement for playing and enjoying most of SimCity BuildIt.
