Beta tests typically have non-disclosure agreements to prevent testers from leaking details to the world. Well, one person with access to the SimCity beta has decided to ignore the NDA and post a lengthy video from the game's tutorial.

The SimCity reboot, like its predecessors, puts the player into the role of mayor. They must build a town from the ground up and care for all of their citizens' needs. They'll also have to respond to various natural disasters that could severely damage the city.
